I tried to check out your caliper pics but the hosting site is down. Interested in seeing how yours came out.

Got around to putting in EBC slotted rotors and red stuff pads. Didn't get to repaint the calipers like I planned but still satisfied with the outcome.

w/15mm spacers up front

I measured my friends E90 and it was way short on width. However, I think any exhaust shop can lengthen the tips.... keep us updated on the f30 exhaust swap

Installed DINAN Sport tuner. That factory pressure sensor clip was a PITA to get off! Had unscrew the sensor from pipe and use a small flat head to pry it off. Will test it out today while heading to work.

FTP charge and boost pipes installed. 5 hd step core vrsf intercooler. The piping and intercooler, plus the custom brackets, all took about 6hrs. I expected a challenge so it wasnt terrible. Now Im waiting on the dp to finish round1

Initial bite is more noticeable than oem, which was really my main objective. Brake dust is minimal too. Plus it looks pretty good lol

Messing around with Bimmercode over the weekend.

Finally noticed the option for cameras to be activated if the vehicle rolls backward so I enabled that.

I also noticed an option for Sport Auto. Toggled that on. Still no Sport+ mode, but I can't tell yet if the car is shifting faster than before.
