VIDEO GUIDE - Instaling USDM Lower Grille Inserts.

It’s the little things that make the difference. Ever since the first time I saw a US Delivered M235i, I thought the front end looked much cleaner without the blades in the grilles.

With all the drivetrain errors people are getting on B58 based cars any time they push them, I'm not sure tuning will ever work well with those cars :S

Yep. That's where I first heard the news! I've been speaking with a few experts in the industry today and it seems like there's already a few different solutions in the works using this same approach so hopefully there will be options available at local tuners all around the world before too long.
