Home made ramps made today. Since getting it lowered, I struggled to get the jack saddle underneath the car. I have a low entry jack from SGS engineering which is quite low but still struggled to get under the side splitter

Looks a lot nicer than the ones I made! For some reason I could not back up into my ramps. When I try they literally go flying underneath my car when I give it any gas to roll back up into. Pretty scary.

I did try backwards and had no issues. What surface were you on? I did think about adding some rubber to the underneath for grip but so far no issues.

Muffler delete and quad tips installed sounds perfect with catless downpipes and stock resonators. Still playing around with tip length.

That pic of the app is before I selected the option with the rears.

I always take a before pic just incase I need to put it back to default.

Good spot

Got the car polished and ceramic coated, painted the side vents gloss black with SEM trim paint (vinyl wrap had started to crack), and replaced the gloss black M-style grills. Car is looking fresh now!

Yesterday, changed the reverse bulbs to LEDs (should've come that way from the factory) and fixed a piece of weather stripping that was hanging in the trunk.

Also yesterday, my transmission started slipping. So that's going to be fun.

I bought some stage 2 3M weather strip adhesive from Advance. Mine was 2/3 attached, so it was just re-attaching the loose part.

Coded the WEATHERBAND radio station and added it to the list (FM/AM/SATELLITE/PRESETS). Glad to have this feature back. The last BMW I had that offered the WEATHERBAND radio was my 97 e38 740iL.

It worked for my 2013 650iXGC (it has the CIC head unit)...but didnít work for my F15 X5 which has the NBT head unit.

Using Bimmercode in expert mode:
HU_CIC > 3002 > RADIO_WEATHERBAND > (default value was) NICT_AKTIV (changed it to) AKTIV
