    Thanks guys. Makes a huge difference even though it’s not massively louder with the 2 pipe mod. Definitely prefer it and the exhaust sound now matches the lovely V8 engine

    Cracking video. Really captures all of the changes in sound, through various sequences, conditions and rev ranges. Best video I’ve seen for that actually!

    Mine had the two pipe mod also, essential mod, the S65 sounds sooooooo good! I absolutely fucking love the E9X M3. Proper car, with a proper engine and soundtrack.

    Thanks Keith, it was your 2 pipe 'review' post that spurred me on to get this! Thanks for that, it 100% describes what I have experienced so far. The video was knocked up very quickly.... I was using a simple set up. I actually got the Gopro originally for snowboarding but realised I can use it for the car if I get a mount and mic. It's a cheap mic but I'm going to play around with the mic location too at some point, internal / external etc.

    I wanted to do a before video too but didn't get time to edit the clips for that. The 2 pipe mod sounds are more important!

    Also got some genuine BMW rubber matts for the front which should help over winter.

    Indeed mate, good guess! Some progress tonight but my fingers are aching a fair bit haha:

    Before pic:

    Using the Mrs hair thing to heat up the lip spoier, this really helped due to the slightly colder weather. I tried flossing first of all but the floss kept breaking. I couldn't find where I put my fishing wire so had to improvise.... Ended up using the bit of ribbon you sometimes get inside women's clothes to hang them! Worked perfect.



    [​IMG]



    All off



    [​IMG]



    That remington thing helped again. Still not sure what it is, definitely not a hair dryer, perhaps a curler of some sort. Either way it heated up the old tacky tape and (half) saved my fingers and thumb skin. The black stuff pretty much rolled off like a little ball. Still a bit of a challenge but definitely helped!

    I then clayed the area and ensured all prepped well. Too dark to do anything else so I will fit it tomorrow.



    [​IMG]




    Of course I test fitted and it's perfect being OEM :)



    [​IMG]



    Side by side, little bro and big bro haha



    [​IMG]



    I also got some OEM rubber matts to get me through the winter. They're OK look, practical more than anything else. Odd one, buy carpets and matts to protect the carpet which you never see......!

    :muttley::muttley::muttley::muttley:

    Tell me about it. It hurts to text on my phone. It hurts more to type on the laptop!!! It's a weird combo of friction burn, carpet burn, too much skin movement, nail ache, thinning skin, dry skin too! :lolwsign: Only those who have done it will understand lol

    How’s the quality of the red start and M buttons? Would you purchase the same Chinese parts again?
    If so, do you have a link for them?

    Thanks.

    Thanks pal.

    Both are being delivered for £12 from a couple of eBay sellers. If the quality is lousy, I’ll use your links.

    Stuck on the 3M tape as per Keith's thread. I did have the Betalink but didn't really want to go down the permanent route at this stage. I'll see how the 3M holds up :)

    During.... I applied the VHB 3M tape to all possible contacts points, using just under 3 metres

    Applied and stuck down

    Looking good!

    I'll get some proper after shots later :)

    Some after shots of the M performance rear spoiler. It does change up the rear nicely. Now I'm thinking about front corner splitters or perhaps a lip I like....
