Yes you're right, I didn't post an update to this. Although I do not have any hard data to back this up, I feel that the temperatures inside the cabin have gone down slightly. However, if I push the car hard (like on the Nürburgring), the middle tunnel still gets rather warm.

Subscribed... Now, I wish someone made something similar on the 2litre D3 Alpina E90!
Thank you! And it's far from finished. Currently the new AR design performance aluminium radiator is being fitted, the methanol injection kit needs to be sorted out (install is done but the cabling is not correct so that it does not work yet), and the suspension will get some tweaking with different camber plates and corner balancing.

At the beginning of next year, the Turbo Dynamics stage 2 turbos will be fitted, along with upgraded internals (pistons+piston rods).
