they are good looking wheels with enough concave in shape, downside they were a bit heavy ~25lbs and also they are cast wheels.

i still have them and currently let my friend rocking them in his Z4M. honestly they are nice looking wheels that's why i never sell them and rather just let my friend using it.

Why not just catless downpipes that'll also give you power?

Now those are sexy wheels! Gorgeous car also. I'd prob order these if you and Will hadn't gotten me paranoid about alloy cast. But roads around here are going from bad to worst...I long for the autobahn's flatness and perfection!

Dude what all have you done? that seems pretty impressive with stock DP's. My baseline run was 230 whp on a Dyno Dynamics. I know not all Dyno are alike. but what all have you done? FMIC, Cobb and kittyless PE? I want a hundred more whp's...

i only have BMW PE, BMS drop-in filter, ETS 5" FMIC and cobb running S1+.

the delta increase between S1 and S1+ is 20whp and 50wtq. which is IMPRESSIVE! boost was running 3psi more.

Nice! Cobb is my next mod Stage 1 aggressive/sport. i was waiting for the hesitation/sputtering fix and it appears it is fix now. FMIC will wait, have you tried running 93 octane? does it really make a difference for the cost?

I had my oil service and spark plug change out yesterday and one of the service consultants stop me in the coffee lounge and ask if i was running Cobb.

I found it strange and wasn't sure if he was trying to pull a fast one, he even suggested getting one and uninstalling it before i bring the car in. Even though that was my intent but still told him I was going to wait. At the same time i found this being pretty cool and I appreciated his honesty. Just wanted to share my experience with my service rep. He even mentioned they came across a JB, and they didn't care. Just don't do something stupid and over boost your turbos.

oh and i quote "why do we care about mods, we have to prove that the issue/defect came from the mod (we talked about Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act). Why do we want to deny service, we want to keep our workers busy." something to that affect...

made sense to me...

Congrats on the sale! I just fell out of warranty on my 3, and am hoping the car will hold another year without major issues.

Problem free from mile 1 to 35,000 miles. Knock on wood. The new Jeep is finally broken in, I'm enjoying the large V8.

I ended up buying Will's Morr's vs8.2 rims tonight. He was cool enough to install them for me (Thanks Will!!). First impressions...

LOOKS- These rims, with the black/silver color combo, are a perfect match for my black e90. It's amazing how gorgeous rims can completely transform a car!
PERFORMANCE - I definitely feel more of the road now, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. On my way home, a modded 350z challenged me, so I accepted. I was amazed at the sudden improvement in off-the-line acceleration as well as the steering response. However, I felt that my car was riding on air, which makes me think my Koni's need to be adjusted. I'll have to play with the adjustments since all 4 Koni's are externally adjustable.
TIRES - I've been driving on V12s for the past 2 years because Michelin's were too pricey. It's amazing the grip these Michelin PSS' offer!

So far, definitely no buyer's remorse. Next step..photo shoot in old sac.
