How do you like the BMW Performance exhaust and intake on your car?

I installed the 128i performance brake kit myself. Wasn't that big of a deal. I took a lot of pictures but some are dark because I worked at night. I can try to piece meal a DIY, but it won't be perfect.

Alright boat rocker... you're not on Honda forums no more so layoff with needless comments, There is a DIY with pictures of this bolt up factory modification and all I want is to dig it up from the archive.

Love everything about it! highly recommended, IMHO if the exhaust was any louder I might just find it annoying

I've heard that you have to reprogram the ECU or something to have the DSC adjust to the new brakes...anyone know if this is true or not?

I'm pretty sure it'l be as easy as: Clamp all the brake lines( or the one you're working on instead). Disconnect the brake line. Attach new rotor / caliper / pads. Connect Brake Line. And do this on all four sides. Then either bleed your brakes or change your Brake fluid to some awesome RBF 600!

...I pulled the trigger on it. My 135i Performance brake kit is installed on beloved 128i but as good as it looks it's not compatible with existing e-brake so that's out now...
Still working out the best solutions, Stay tuned!!
