Having issues with stoneguard with bubbles and lifting, not a good job done by installer... taking it back for them to do it properly!

It is almost invisible, but believe that can look yellow after a few years on white cars, but has lifetime warranty on 3M VentureShield, so you should be ok.

Need you to perhaps do some coding as you did with Joe's 1M

Sure, but not sure it captures their true sound and I'd need a cameraman. They are LOUD! I think that the N55's are a more conservative option, but I like these MadDad's a lot, my neighbors do not !

Hey did I understand you correctly on Sat morn - you can put oem N55 mid pipes on my N54 135i vert and get a deep increase in sound and a slight increase in power ?
Btw to return the favour from when you helped with the Lux, i have vid equipment and can do video for you when you want to share your 1M mods.

Yes, Joe put his 1M on the dyno on Saturday with N55 mids and made significant power gains. I would suggest N55 pipes on your vert, as the MadDad's may be too loud with the top down. Also, N55's mids are cheaper and can be bought from BMW AU.

Thanks, keen to take you up on the video

It happens sometimes mate. I went with a stupidly expensive mob for 3m tinting and took it back, every window was hopeless.

now it looks flawless.

protecting the 1 series seems to be a must, when I was buying, almost all had damage to the bonnet. mine may be too bad to even bother now

The N54 pipes have some bad bends in them, rather get N55/aftermarket pipes. The advantage of MadDad's are they are a slightly larger diameter than the N55's

Cool, when you back from Melbourne? I will PM you a list of coding requests
