I'd pay $100-$140 for a FMIC install. $225 is more than what I paid to have my DPs installed.

Also, welding on tips can't be that hard with the right equipment...

Can't go wrong with either. I'd went with AA just because it was cheaper.

Haha thanks nafoo! I was trying to avoid the hassle part cuz I didn't feel like trimming the inside. I'll keep looking around for a better price...unless I can find a free day and do it myself with a friend.

Hey just tentative, is anyone interested in a n54 magnaflow exhaust? I bought it thinking it would direct fit my n55 but it looks like it would need some work done and I'd rather spend the $ elsewhere probably as the stock exhaust sounds great with the DP I already have. Not 100% on letting it go but thinking about it. PM if interested.

Where are you doing the shoot? I kind of want to play around with pictures soon.

Also, I spotted a black E92 328i with:
CF vented hood
M3 bumper
Lowered on H&R Race?
Linea Corse Z2S? The lip was ~3" in the rear..
CSL trunk (only 328 I've ever seen aside from the one picture **********s has)

at HK4 today. If you're on here, I hope your flat tire (driver rear) didn't destroy those rims!
