I'm copying Uncle Joe. They seem to be the only manufacturer that does a 1M specific set, ie lower front than rears. Andrew does eibach but they are a "generic" E8x setup so aren't what I am after. Stuart has helped out and shipped them to southernBM in readiness

Just wondering if an IC is worthwhile and will it give more killerwasps than just the tune and DP back akra. I know in this weather it wouldn't hurt hey

Also will look at some re coding, start up bs on iDrive and mirro fold on remote lock too, that would be cool.

H&R lowered race springs FTW...

You might aswell go the full monty mate..If you are considering a tune, the IC upgrade is a must...

I'm starting to think an IC is needed.
If I'm free I may meet you at SouthernBM, I'm also interested on getting some coding done.

I didn't realise Andrew does some coding. Wish we have someone up here who does it. Like others I think IC is a must and the ETS should be perfect. May as well put in a aFe stage 2? .

I am actually more interested in ESS stage 2 . It would be interesting to dyno all of those.

I have had a few items coded. The mirrors folding on locking the car is gold. Should have been OEM.

Can the M button on be coded? I remember the old days when the dealers used to do these codings.

Yes with the Cobb Tune. You select linear Map instead of stock throttle map and the M remains on.

Higher boost = stock IC not coping with cooling. Probably ok for a street car, but on the track you will suffer heatsoak where the stock IC just doesn't manage to to cool the the turbos air.

ETS is good, but if you can pay I'd choose Forge

Alpine, given that you don't track your own cars, better return for $$ as M2 deposit
