I got the VRSF DP's installed by Active Motorwerke today. I rang Steven to set up a time yesterday, and they managed to fit me in for today.

They fit RHD 135i's fine! A little more adjusting the rest of the exhaust etc, but when all bolted together, there was no issue with clearance.

In my opinion, for just under $400 fully shipped, the VRSF DP's are awesome value.

Anyone in Melbourne I strongly recommend Steven & Jin from Active Motorwerke in Clayton (www.activemotorwerke.com.au). The guys really knew their stuff & were fantastic to deal with - I'll be using them again that's for sure.

I was also informed by Tiago that VRSF are going to bring out a slightly modified version for the RHD market. I don't know when, or what's actually different, but I can say for certain that the current ones fit!!!!!

AR Design DP's = $900 + shipping
VRSF DP's = $400 including shipping

Both fit 135's!
Hows the sound?? I believe vrsf dont come in ceramic coating? did you do it out side?? Cause I asked tiago and he said they dont do coating for now. i'm going to order mine in the new years with another forum member.
