Agree with the de-badge route. Mine came like that when I bought it and wanted the badge back on but actually I'm glad its de-badged, makes the rear look better and cleaner!

I have the cable sat in my glove box but I think I'd rather go down the remap route and pay evolve a visit... the eventual plan is to go full bolt ons but definitely need some PS4S's and potentially some m3 suspension bits first👍🏼👍🏼

Fair enough! I'm planning to go FBO in the summer too

Which M3 bits you thinking? I've read of M3 lsd's being fitted on, control arms etc.. not sure what handling mods would work for b-road bashing

Sounds good, I'm not sure if the m3 lsd bolts straight in as mine is dct so I think it's slightly different. I know quaife have a specific one for my car. As for suspension etc i'm really not sure yet need to have a look around and see what others have done/recommend.... the run flat tyres are pretty horrible and I would like some cs wheels so maybe that will come first 👍🏼

How are you finding the mhd map?

Budgetbimmers fit a M3 manual LSD and it seems there's plenty of them floating around for sale so I'm considering it if it's cheaper than the quaife option

MHD so far has been great no problems, loving the exhaust burble setting on medium with 1.5s base. The tune itself makes under 2k slightly laggy but as soon as you hit 2.3-2.5k and the boost kicks in it just flings itself forward. Loving it so far

That's the reason behind me thinking the m3 lsd may not work/fit 👍🏼

Progress has been pretty slow but a few new bits done:
-carbon fibre high kick spoiler as I wasn't happy with the poor quality black one
-debadged and removed the number plate surround

Looks much cleaner in person👍🏼

Booked in for walnut blasting next week and then I can look at remapping etc....

Was after black ones originally but the chrome isn't too bad

Walnut blasting before and after!

Interesting to see the amount of carbon build up at 55k, felt more responsive and a fair bit quicker on way home but it threw up an engine fault code... lovely.. fitted new spark plugs as well

Very scary... will definitely be extending the warranty! I was under the impression they were pretty bulletproof - must've just been unlucky as haven't heard of many others going wrong
