It's just I would like it louder. By straight pipe I still meant having the resonators in the line.

My buddy has a 328i I think it's straight pipe and I've never heard a car sound this good. It's crazy how good it sounds I can't believe it.

I don't notice any smell when I'm driving, but it was noticeable after I parked. No drone on the highway which was nice.

The knock sensor issue is advancing my timing and causing my AFRs to run a tad rich (~13.5), so I need to get that sorted out. Probably not helping the smell.
Yeah I get what you mean. It doesn't bother me as much since it sounds more E46 M3 rasp than rice rasp now IMO. Like it's still a high note but not ear piercing you know.

Posting here since maybe it's a IS issue... ppl with rear diffusers does it fit wrong/with a gap or is it probably just my diffuser quality the problem?

Most of the time carbon parts have to be "adjusted" to make them fit good.

Who is the manufacturer?

It's en ebay one lol. They offering me 50$ back. I think I might make a hole in the tabs and then pass a zip tie to pull it in.

When you say have to be adjusted is it sanding/grinding it off or?

I would say whatever it takes to make it fit, be sanding, grinding, or flexing.

For my Arkym front lip, I had to push really hard to flex it into place and drive screws through it.

Oil Leaks ?

My car is very low mileage, ie., under 28k, but several months ago I noticed an oil leak and upon inspection, it appeared to be coming from the oil pan. I took it into the dealer who told me that it would cost $2500 to repair. Whatever the dealer did the car has not leaked since. I did not have the repair done and paid about $165 for the inspection, but the leak has stopped. What oil leaks if any have you had with this car?

Anyone replace their headlight washer covers? I looked inside and dont see the washer, unless the whole thing popped out with the cover. I bought a new cover on ebay but no idea how to attach it aside from glueing it on.

Its a dummy cover to keep the production costs low. Unless you have cold weather package your headlight will not have washers.

Small detail, but I'm wondering if you replaced your side markers with aftermarket ones? Because I don't see the amber.

I see you've also got the painted front reflectors. I just ordered those for my 335is as well.

Front lip, black rims...

All these details really add up and make your car look clean! Well done. Planning anything else?

Looks good! Interested to see how it looks with the new rims.

What happened to your painted front reflectors?
