Great write up David. Would you be kind enough to post the eBay link for the mirror covers. :)

Great update Dave 👍

That must be a bit of a beast with all that power, must get some times done to see how much it’s improved!

Does Ian do much with the baby m’s?

Why didn’t you get him to tune it?
Cheers mate. Yes Iain ran his own M235i and has an M2.
As I wrote, somebody has only just hacked the B58 and nobody has yet brought a remap to open market.
I'll wait for Iain to get to grips with it, then yes, I probably will try out a remap and do a back to back comparo between JB4 and custom remap.
Should be interesting.

Lovely motor mate!

How did you remove the Maxton logos from your splitter and spoiler? Are they just glued on?

Cheers,
Paul

Saw you trundle past me at the Brookwood Sainsbury's traffic lights this afternoon, exhaust note is definitely noticeable :) Didn't get much chance to look at the mods but it did look a fair bit lower than most.

Interestingly, it has not been lowered at all, bar the M4 LCAs on the front which lowers the front very slightly.
The bodykit of course visually lowers the car, but has never caused any ground clearance issues.

I absolutely love the Akrapovic system. Gives the car so much more character without making it sound like a boy-racer-mobile.

Thanks Paul. Yes I just asked Valet Magic who installed the kit to remove the logos. They are just stuck on, no holes.
