I did have them redone to be less wide. Obviously I won't be going very fast with these wheels..
why they look stock!

What size wheels and tires are you ending up with?

Haha stock anchors right?

We were discussing 265/285. New Michelin's have been sitting for a bit. Still need to mount them, but can't beat free.99! 😁

How are you tracking oil level without the iDrive screen? I am converting my car to a track car and have no real use for iDrive other than that one piece of information.

Did you convert to a dipstick?

I'd like to get rid of the screen so I don't have to look at the 15 warning messages that show up since I removed the stock seats and airbags - can't seem to code these out with NCS.

Weíre non-iDrive so we can check the oil through the gauge cluster. But thatís a good question about iDrive equipped 335ís... I donít believe they have that same option! Perhaps either convert to a dipstick (??) which could have a market if you ever made them... or convert to non iDrive somehow!??

Coding the cluster without Nav option code will do this easy. Oil level will be available in the BC Menu afterwards.

Coding! To the rescue. Sweet, thanks! Do you know what module that would be in? CIC I imagine.

By the way what are you using for data logging?

CIC is your nav Headunit which you'll do away with. The Kombi module (cluster) is the one to code.

Do you know what option I'm looking for in NCS Dummy?

Sir Daft, MHD is a good call. Can't beat it for simplicity.

So this is massively exciting news. At PRI, Radium Engineering brought a prototype of their upcoming in-tank surge tank for the e9x platform. Can’t tell you how many fellow e9xers complain about getting fuel starve with a 1/3rd tank. No mas. The benefit of this solution over a typical swirl pot/surge tank is that in a sanctioned racing environment, the in-tank doesn’t require to be placed behind an added firewall. EFab Eric spoke with Radium at PRI and they said it will be able to fit more than one LPFP (good), should be ready late 1Q/early 2Q 2019 and should be somewhere around $600-700. Downside is that it’s not clear on the capacity, but may not be a super large surge tank. Looking forward to hearing more about this fueling option.

It was only a matter of time... M3 LSD and axle conversion! Found a local seller with an excellent condition, low mileage E9x M3 3.15 DCT LSD, axles and driveshaft for a fantastic package deal. Aside from modifying the M3 driveshaft, this should be plug and play. And since the M3 DCT LSD has a 3.15 final drive this will be just a tad shorter than the stock 6MT 335’s 3.08 final drive - which should fit our objective perfectly. That said, anyone looking for an excellent street/mild track LSD I just listed my MFactory LSD up for sale here.
