    It's been over a week since I had the RIS done and I genuinely never went past 5.5k rpm.

    Finally late last week some dry roads and 11 degree weather.

    F'ck me this thing pulls to the red-line better than my non-CP. Traction is so much better too - still agruably not as good as my M2, but a big improvement over my M3. Mostly, I suspect, to do with the MPSSs as my M3 came with Contis.

    MPE sings at the red-line too but it has to be said, the S55 still sounds plain weird! I do miss the noise the M2 made.

    The colour is beginning to pop more now the sun is getting higher but I do need to spend a weekend with the Makita to sort the paintwork as it's awful. In hind-sight, I should have complained and got them to do it but at least doing it myself I know what's been used.

    A difficult colour to take a picture of:

    Sounds like you had a fun day of driving - I’m on the cusp myself of enjoying mine (but getting used to changing up at 5.5k rpm) / it’s in for full detailing and front ppf this week / RIS next week then it’s protected / looking good and off the leash !!!

    Recently swapped from Contis to MPSS on my M3 and noticed a HUGE difference in traction.

    Lol, if you think that's an improvement, wait until you try MPS4S's!

    Sounds like you’re having lots of fun Phil

    Dont tell Dave (Jpf) about how much better the CP is versus the non CP. He’ll blow a fuse :muttley:

    Thing is, a 44 year old man shouldn't be in sport+ in the multi-story car-park just so he can hear the MPE on overrun...
