Thanks Marvin and yeah, I need to buy the harness or make my own to retrofit my new steering wheel. I'll buy the DCT paddles later on in the future since i'm kind of short on cash due to the other mods I bought

Around here, it's always nice at night so it is VERY tempting to go out and just cruise haha but there's nothing around here open late to chill at other than Wal-Mart, In 'n Out and I think that's it haha.

All good. I wonder if you have to go through all that wiring or can you just buy the multifuntion buttons that the paddles plug into.

Congrats on the new mods! What'd you get?

From the looks of the BMS Harness it seems like it's just plug and play, take out the factory wiring and plug in BMS. The steering wheel came with the multi-function buttons.

I bought the M3 complete lower control arm kit and camber plates for my ST (Once those 3 items are installed then Stage I will be complete ) That money should of went to new tires but new tires will have to wait till next year

You should take your steering wheel apart and check behind your multifuction panels to see if there is a slit for paddles to be plugged into. That's where the paddles get their power/signal.

This was my set up.

Secondary cats removed
Resonator removed
2.5 inch piping from where the secondary cats started all the way through to
the new magnaflow race muffler with x-pipe
The race muffler is being placed where the resonator was originally and then 3 inch piping from the new race muffler to the 3.5 inch double walled style tips.


Doesn't really yeild any gains but it's a nicer sounding exhaust. Similar to E46 M3.

Nice! Yeah, I was curious about it because I saw a couple of videos and a thread on here somewhere about it. I cut off my stock muffler and have welded the Active Autowerke axle-back exhaust. I've been trying to dig up a diagram of piping. So If I were to delete my secondary cat, I would need new piping correct? How much did it run you, if you don't mind me asking? And recommend anywhere to go get it done?
I'm interested in possibly doing this in the next month.
