    Ordered the long eurotray. Still can get them from the dealership!




    Also ordered m3 fuel pump baffle fixture to help aid my fuel starvation on right hand sweepers at the track. Hopefully it solves it for Thunderhill Turn 14.





    and a crappy phone pic of the car in winter mode with 12.5mm spacers in front and 5mm rear.

    Awesome to see you over here, Derbo! Nicely done. Is the HKS for M54 or did you modify an M52TU setup? I'm looking for the HKS exhaust, but can't find it anywhere
