Sweet!! Thanks Flo!! I didnít think to check the M section (duh).

I wonder if anyoneís fitted these on a plain ol 650? I might have to do some digging. I had one of these on my E60 535 and loved the red peaking through the front grills.

That Iím not sure of. Iíd imagine it would work all the same though.

It does look pretty sinister with the red shining through. That plus the aggressive headlights scream ďmove out my way!Ē Lol

Update time...

The car FINALLY has some life to it. Having the power is great, but I personally need the exhaust to match the speed. So, what's changed:

-Coding
-NGK Spark Plugs gapped to .020"
-Mission Performance Stage 2 Tune
-VRSF Catless Downpipes

Even with the Competition exhaust and the Megan Racing axle back, the car was pretty much on mute IMO. Maybe not so much from the outside, but I couldn't hear anything while driving - even with the windows down. I would say the interior noise was a 2/10 prior to DPs. Now, 7.5/10 and in a good way. Zero drone yet you can still hear the exhaust with the windows up. Roll them down 1" and you'll instantly smile.

I will be adding a GT Haus Meisterschaft mid section with the velocity box in the next couple of months. The car definitely doesn't "need" it, but its more so a preference thing of me wanting more sound compared to most people.

Coding Options


Gapping Plugs to .020"




Post Downpipe install / Loading Stage 2 Tune


Video comparing the exhaust with the axle back only and axle back + downpipes...As we all know, videos never do exhaust notes justice but believe me when I say it sounds sooo much louder. And not just louder for the sake of noise, but the tone is very unique.

I donít have the codes unfortunately. I payed someone to do all my coding remotely. I just sat there and went over all the available options one by one. If you want his info, DM me.
