I woke up to this. Nothing that I did. Drove it last night in 40's weather, parked it outside which I usually don't do. Is this my fault or did the painter short cut? PM me what I should say/ask to the shop. I'm sure this will crack again in the cool weather and warm vents. Cracks start above the edge, about a thumb length and my nails can go deep.

Is this a pic of the vents on your hood???

The top pic looks like something flew out of the engine bay and stretched it up coming out.

Is the second pic from the underside?

If I'm not missing anything, the pricing between the three companies aren't too far off from one another. TMS is just more convenient since they give you the option of building your kit using the drop-down boxes.

Yes, this one is the long middle one, side vents are fine. Yes underside, it's free and clear of where something would come out, the hood latch is blocking any entry. It looks like clear coat cracking.

I feel like doing an OEM mod exhaust soon. Too many exhaust things in the garage.

It's cutting up your oem muffler from the top and replacing perforated pipe with straight pipe, I forget if you remove the all/some/none of the baffle material though. I want to open up my eisenmann too.
edit: might not be straight, I think the direction goes like =TL= like a maze.

Would you guys rather upgrade the front suspension or front and rear as well? Not tracking, just upgrade to make it a funner daily drive. I'm not looking at M3 parts but Meyle or Lemforder. But the package I'm looking at has no sway bar, still good enough?
