Beat bet is to call vrsf, or shoot them an email.
Ur are good, but theyre 2.5 inch and cost more than vrsf, not as much as ar but I would wait for the vrsf theyre cheaper and are 3inch.

cp-e fits the XI for $580, good reviews from the few guys I talked to that run them. Better quality than UR and cheaper than anything you can get from AR discounted or otherwise.

These are the ones I'm going with myself, assuming VRSF doesn't drop some for the XI relatively soon (sounds possible!).

i have found the URs to be flawless after 60K miles...love em.

I like your sig... have you run 11s in your Xi?

Sounds great can't wait to get them, but if you need some time to test them and make them sweet,go on!!! The quality is the main priority,anyway it's still so called and wet outside!!!

2nd time on dragtimes, missed first by 5 thousandths

Although since then I've bought a vbox, and have an 11.92 on a logged vbox run (4100lbs run weight), if things go well this weekend I'll have I suspect at least an 11.7x logged vbox run as I'm going to pull my seats out and run on 1/4 tank (3750lbs run weight).

Then comes the nitrous run this weekend, not sure what to expect there but I'm taking it easy at first

Glad to hear things are coming along Tiago, last I heard from you it sounded like it was going to be months not weeks. If you can get them out in the next 6-8 weeks I'll be one of your first customers.

Maybe you already mentioned and I missed it, but the DPs you're doing for the 335xi, are they 3'' tapering to 2.5'' ?

Yes sir, not really possible to fit 3" pipes under there unfortunately. We're trying to extend the 3" as far as we can go though.

If you can wait: get the VRSF.
if you can't: order the CP-e.
There's no reason to get the ARs... Except name recognition or you just like paying huge premiums.

Who aside from Ultimate Racing and BMW makes catted DP's for the xi's? If you want catted, your options are very limited.

Wow...you should knock me out of the top spot with ease then. I am a little surprised that record still stands as it was done long ago before meth, nitrous and upgraded turbos were in the mix. That was just JB3 map 7 with race fuel, kitty less DPs, and a borla cutback (which has since been removed due to horrible cabin drone).
Full weight.
Now just running the DPs and GIAC stage 2 for a smooth daily driver. Not as much low end as the JB, which Routinely gave me 1.7 60 ft times. But the GIAC does have a great top end and will give you a 1.8 60 ft time, but the best slip I got was only 12.3.
