Wheels are different for sure

Nice overall, though I have to get used to the white circle on the wheels. If that was all black, your car would be Yin Yang perfect imo.

Cheers
Robin

Thanks for the comments guys. The white rings are def polarising
I wasn't sure at first but they've really grown on me. I wanted to try the product before selling it, and am happy to report no curb rashes so far

Aussie - mate, nothing beats summer at home. Will post up more pics, in case u weren't homesick enuf

Ian - tune has been going gr8, I usually drive in non-M mode as I prefer the smoothness in city driving. The tune is factory smooth when u want it, but it def has more beans on tap. I'm yet to dyno it again...

I've got a set of Alpha-N splitters (fangs) in stock. I went with the fangs as i bought other BMWP CF mirrors & spoiler - and I love the look of CF fangs on E9x M3 Competition pack. Quality of the Alpha-n CF is outstanding quality, it looks very OEM.

The MotoGP lips looks great too, and are very well built.

Agree... M mode not required most days. Even on that track day in December I kept forgetting to put is on. As you saw on the skid pan, it would have been easier without M mode.

So you still have stock mids?

Love the car but the White Time Attack Pinstripes should be thinner. They look more overwhelming then like an accent at that thickness. Its an easy fix that makes a big difference. Everything else looks great. Gonna go with a Carbon or Black roof?

While I wouldn't quite say these are simple mods it looks great. I might look closer into those CF parts.

My 1M just turned 1 year so I finally treated it to a bit of track action, at Sydney Motorsport Park - South Circuit. The car was just plain AWESOME and much quicker than I was expecting. It was my first time at the circuit and my best was 1:07, which was within 2sec of dedicated track cars that guys at BMW Club was running. IIRC an experienced driver in a modified 996GT3 clocked about 2.5sec quicker than me.

No issues at all with the car at all...engine didn't overheat, no limp mode, and thankfully no CP issues. The brakes were phenomenal & ECU tune worked flawlessly...my track tyres struggled with the torque

Some details on my track setup:
- Evolve S1 tune, FMIC, Rear section exhaust
- OCC
- PFC08 pads all around
- Goodridge SS brakelines and Motul RBF
- 18" Advan Wheels, with Advan A050 245F & 265R

Very nice set up Saurabh.

I'll be looking at a track set up soon too, have been itching to do a track day but just haven't had time to yet.
