    Did I overspend? I think to - Titanium studs

    They look nice. Should shave off some un-sprung weight ; yes, I am rationalizing. But for sure will make easier to get tires on and off.

    Oh, and, this.

    Looks even better with DSC off.

    Ufff - misspelled the title. ... I think so - they were $520.

    Yep. Definitely overspending. Welcome to the cult.

    I like the M dash emblem. Where do you get it and is it an easy retrofit?

    It's here:

    The retrofit is not bad, get the cluster out carefully, two screws and 2 connectors.

    Be sure to take out the two reset buttons on the front of the cluster before you open it up. If you break them, you'll have to get handy with some paperclips.

    Some transparent tape, and you're good. Now press that DSC button !

    They look legit. 50 grams (1.75 oz) weight saving per corner is not worth writing home about. But now it will be easier getting the wheels on and off. Could have solved that with a wheel hanger tool; I know. I overspent. On the other hand I can now put in up to 20mm spacers, but that will add weight now, won't it ;-)

    Damn those are shiny as hell. I wonder what the replacement interval for titanium studs are compared to steel? If you track, it's recommended to replace steel ones every 2-3 years. If no track then... not sure, but presumably much longer assuming stupid monkey techs don't ugga-dugga the lugs
