I doubt that our car will ever see a dunno, whilst she is ours anyways. All I know is that she goes like stink and sounds absolutely the way we (the wife ) likes it. Absolutely the fastest car I have driven, the T/C light flickers in 1st through 3rd, pretty scary sometimes hahahahaha

What suspension everyone is looking at? Performance Shock Inc through HP has released an Ohlins kit. Road and Track coming in a few months.

Also the kw v3 DDC is interesting. Any thoughts - sorry to hijack your thread Zuzu

True.. the Hot lap with Brabham in the M3 was awesome.. But there is no comparison to the 1M as, never got a Hot lap in a 1M with Brabham, as no 1M available on the day, as you can imagine..

I was referring to my own "limited" track driving experience, driving both the M3 and 1M...( BUT then you already knew that, and just like taking the piss... )

Nah not taking the piss this time, i was serious. When we had a chat at EC (when you bummed the ciggie off me, btw you really shouldn't smoke) I thought you said the m3 was better than the 1m.

honestly I can't imagine stock for stock, a 1m would be better around EC than an m3. Very very different motors and power bands and on that track i'd expect the m3 to be hands down quicker, wakefield though i'd expect it to be very very close with the am out in front.

Just my thoughts though

Remus Street Race & MadDad mids. Just fitted, suspect it will get better with more miles on it.

Thanks Peter @ Advan for your help today!

Sure thing. If the weather is good, by all means.

Ian... Firstly everything is looking sweet so far - nice!

Just one question (I hate to ask), but how does your dealer feel about the mods?

Thanks! I asked service manager @ 2k service. They were ok with mods like exhaust etc. It has to be proved that a mod directly caused the fault.

Two examples were:
1. HPFP fault can't be exhaust related.
2. a bust turbo blade can be related to a non-standard air intake.

Dealer was interested in the mods I planned & welcomed me to run them past them prior if any concerns. That said they did pick up I had a aftermarket magnetic sump plug & and a non-BMW oil filter (I had a Bosch filter), all which was noted against my VIN.
