Wow this is THE PERFECT BUILD! I love everything you've done on it. Looks fantastic. I'm in NY too (same BMW CC plates). Hopefully I will see you around some time!

Hey man I meant to ask ya, how are the low dust pads? I presume you went with the iSweep? Is the initial bite still there like the OE pads have?

Traditionally you sacrifice a little bite when going with low dust.

If i were to say the OEM bite was 10/10 i would say these are about 8.5-9/10 in bite.

Congratulations on beating COVID and creating this amazing build. I have so many favorites from the stance to the wheels to the exhaust. Very impressive!

Luckily I survived and I am here grateful to share with you my build! I was sad to say goodbye to my MY15 Space Grey F15, but man was i excited to get into my first ever M car!

Decent trade in value, a great discount off MSRP and $6500 of BMW incentives = a deal I can not refuse. I was now the proud owner of a MY20 Alpine White with black/beige interior F97 Comp package. I said to myself it's great the way it is, but who am I really kidding. Thanks to great forum sponsors like r33_RGSport IND-Distribution as well as a personal friend of mine who isn't a listed vendor here on the forums. The mods were flowing in, first thing on hand were a set of Vossen wheels (HF-5) in anthracite, and a set of MSS height adjustable springs to lower the car as well as helping with the "harsh" ride. As well as 5% Llumar ceramic tint all around and Air 80 on the front windshield.

Then as time progressed, r33_RGSport kept posting pics of upcoming front lips that were about to be released and I pulled the trigger on the RKP lip. I am glad I did as the build quality is amazing as well as wrapping around the whole front of the bumper.

As I thought I was pretty much done after this, my wallet was screaming at me. Unfortunately a great forum member Mr. jsnkim happens to live close by and I got to hear first hand how wonderful the Akrapovic exhaust sounds. So a couple of dollars later I have an axel back Akra installed on my car.

I also have a set of low dust pads from r33_RGSport which are working out PERFECTLY! No more squeaking and my wheels still look clean after driving for a week or two. Here are a couple of pics of the car as it is now, until the next mod!

Congrats to you OP. Not only did you beat Covid, but you’re also beating up on the vehicle“MOD” Game with a very, very, clean “gloss print worthy” F97. Hat’s off to you - cheers

Shit...I'm trying to figure out what Mid-Pipe options are available.

I just sold my 340 with a Dinan Mid-Pipe and I'd like to do something similar to get a little bit more noise (I have a non-comp).

Thinking of pulling the trigger on a Dinan Exhaust but I think it might be too loud. I got a 19 month old and my wife is preggo...so she's not feeling the idea of an exhaust, especially during morning start up in the garage.
