Do you find your RE exhaust to drone pretty heavy in highway driving and light throttle between 2k-3k?? The one i just picked up used reverbs like crazy through the car, but when i get on it hard, it doesnt sound much different than the OEM axleback.

Nice car man, almost makes me wish i got the grey over white.

Also, what front plate bracket?? Looks great, way better than the one I currently have on.

I had some drone at that rpm too but i thought it was due to the bad welds between the muffler and the pipe. When i went to get the weld fixed i also had the resonator cut so the drone didn't go away completely.(did get better)
I'm back on the oem now since I like the oem sound(minus res) more than aftermarket stuff
It's the r-ho bracket, pretty nice piece
Thanks!

Strip the paint off those wheels and let the lip shine. The garage pics are by far the best version of your car.

Wow, I generally see a lot of Space Gray E90/E92's. Very rarely 1-series. Nice car!

Thanks!

I would love to go back to that look man, cept that lip is in two pieces now sitting in my trunk, and the wheels were curbed pretty bad so the only way i knew how to patch it up required me to paint the wheels..

Why no perf skirts? They would really complete the look!

Thanks! yep, love to do photoshoots but architecture school doesn't really care about your hobbies, or your life, or your well being.

wheels are FS too!
