Hi guys -
Received a spacer/shim from Tim a month or so ago. Installed it right away. Thought I would wait a bit and drive my 3'er for a few weeks before providing feedback.
I did have the bloody SES light on when I installed it. Geez, getting a sunburn from that friggen thing. Light was still on till I acquired a PEAKE code reader tool. Reset the code and the car has run great for the duration.
In the mean time I have installed a Rogue - ICON stainless pipe and deleted the worthless piece(s) of garbage secondary/post Cat's. The exhaust sounds so sweet it is un-F'ing-believable! It is too much fun mod'ing these wonderful Bimmers.
Many thanks (again) to Tim for facilitating this shim solution to the aFe intake system.
