Phil,

What kind of paint did you use for the steering wheel bits? Some have painted them satin, some with rubberized paint, and some have them dipped. I'm still undecided on what to use, but it is on my short list. Probably like yours, the BMW rubberized coating has been scratched/worn down in a few places.

I have those strut-tower caps. They clean up the engine bay and look nice. Any plans for the oil filter aluminum cap? Thinking of polishing mine and clear-coating it.

Is the top piece in the trunk of the coupe--don't recognize it, but I have a roadster.

Salty

Hi Salty.

Don't know actually, still at the paintshop but I said I wanted it to look like the bottom part so it will be painted matte black

Hm, haven't thought about the oil filter cap but many

Looks fantastic -- like it just rolled off the line in Spartanburg, SC. And no more steering wheel rash. Did they happen to mention anything about the durability of the steering wheel painted bits? I keep procrastinating on that project.

Really like the X3 button mod. Did you just pull the old rubber ones off?

Nice progress Filip! However I think you should keep the pictures a bit smaller, they are huge and a lot of scrolling is needed. :/

Don't know if Im gonna put on the SS Race or not. I had it on my previous Z4 M and all I remember was angry neighbors and a lot of highway drone.

What do you think?

Im not very happy with the stock sound either but SS Race might be to much?

So, it's not too loud anymore???

SS Race was a bit too loud for me as well and the tips stick out a bit further than I would have liked. But overall, the most important factor is that if you like it is all that matters

I really like the Super sprint Race mufflers with the Super Sprint X pipe too. DKF hangers to hold mufflers for better adjustment and reduces inside drome. I love it.
