    “This sounds like a piece of agricultural equipment.” Exactly what you want to say when describing a high revving, high maintenance V10 lol.

    Are you considering a CIC iDrive retrofit? The CCC...

    Aren’t convertible mirrors different from the other models? I swear I remember reading that the antenna receiver for keyless entry is located in the mirror in verts.

    That’s an interesting dent in the center of the hood. I’m thinking someone left a tool or something on top of the engine and closed the hood on it?

    Sorry about the wheels, I would’ve gone berserk given all the headaches involved last year to get them done correctly.

    What did you do for your ZHP/ BMW / MINI today? #2

    I didn’t have GC but I did have TCK camber plates and thought I’d share something unrelated to your question: some camber plates aren’t as tall as stock strut mounts, so you’re going to lower the...

    Yea that definitely needs to be cut and a new section added. Still a simple enough task for a competent muffler shop.

    Looks amazing. Agreed on the glossy black baseplates—I think BMW really goofed by giving the M3s the body colored baseplates.
