ETS/Synapse Charge pipe will be going on the car tonight. ARK exhaust will hopefully be installed Sunday. Amber BMS angel eye bulbs should be in early next week.

Still making mad progress! Once the bulbs and exhaust get installed I am going to have a nice and intimate photo shoot with her to share the progress as a whole.

Next month: FMIC and move on up to Cobb Stage2+

I was afraid it would look weird too but decided to test it out one night for shits and giggles. The texture blocks are just about the same size as the CF weave so it actually makes the carbon fiber look textured itself. I personally like the look better than if it was just flat.

The exhaust was bought through McKenna on here. You can buy straight from ARK themselves though. Last time I checked the exhaust was still on sale through their site! I saw it on another website recently for even cheaper than what ARK is selling them for on theirs, but I can't remember the link now. Sorry!

I'll be posting up photos and some sound/video clips of the exhaust once it goes on!

I got bored earlier and decided to install the minor cosmetic stuff that I've had laying around the last few weeks.

Matte black 135i badge





Amber Gone laminate (eh, didn't really work...)


and, I wrapped my I-Pass in leftover CF vinyl so it would be less noticeable in the window. Why did they make those things white!?



Taking the car into MPC Wednesday to get the Ark exhaust installed. I will be taking some thorough photos and video clips afterwards for all of you curious on how it sounds.

Itching to get a FMIC on the car so I can go Stage2. So close!

ARK Performance DT-S exhaust was finally installed today. It sounds beastly and sexy, I love it. I made a quick video of a cold start and a few small revs to tide the people interested over till the weather is nice and I can get some better outdoor video clips.



Sadly, the exhaust is hitting the cross brace under the car so I need to take it back in tomorrow to have them stick a few washers in there. Otherwise, it sounds and looks fantastic!

Ha! I was waiting on someone to say something about that! I'll snap a few pics of it up in the windshield here soon. Hopefully the weather this weekend will be nice enough that I can get a mini photo shoot of the cars progress in.

Welp, I got everything I had lying around installed finally. In celebration I gave her a deep clean and wax and then took her out for a little photoshoot. Next month I will be sticking a FMIC on and upgrading to Cobb Stage2+. After that, it's a few months of saving to completely overhaul the suspension system.
