I wanted to add an X pipe to mine as well to compliment the Dinan exhaust. Is the stock tubing size 2.25? Where did you get a non oem rear badge? I could only find the smaller genuine BMW badge. Also, What radio amd rearview camera do you have installed?

That will make some noise!

haha that should have a bit of a rumble

I saw another set of black style 87's online and was tempted of getting them, but the rear tyres (winter tyres) are only 275 wide... makes the set much less interesting if it needs 2 new tyres already.

looking forward to some wheel pics :P

I'm not sure if yours is the same. Mine is only a 4.4i and has 2.25 inch pipe from the cats to the rear mufflers. I have a feeling that the 4.6is has the same diameter but I'm not sure as the partnumbers are completely different on RealOEM.

As for the badge, it's just a replica. I searched for 78mm 51141970248 and this one came up: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005...58894c4dCQQSZC

I have an Aycetry branded 10.25'' inch Android 9 HU 4GB and this exact rear view camera: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000...27424c4dOa4YWA

I have been using them for 11 months now and the HU is great. No issues apart from the occasional time it will not turn on. (1 out of 100 start ups)
The camera fits in the licence plate holder but did not clip in. I had to glue it in unfortunately. Last week the LED stopped working(due to corrosion I think). It had been part lit/flickering for months already. Already ordered some parts to fix this and will post it on here when I'm done.

Oh yeah!
That's unfortunate!
I still need to get out to get some good pictures of the new wheels! The car is a litte dirty now and I have been busy with my uncles 955 Porsche Cayenne. We are fitting a TechArt Magnum bodykit to it!

I did fit some paddle shifter extenders last week, I like them


Finally fixed the subwoofer surround, no more gaps and less chance of damage.




And I went for an much needed alignment. The rear Project Silver adjustable suspension made it easy to get right! I had to adjust the right BC Racing camberplate to get camber even on both sides. The shop let me do the alignment myself after they setup the machine. I went for 2 test drives between setting up and adjusted after each test drive. It took about 3 hours total but since I was not in a hurry and the shop did not need the alignment machine I could get it perfect.
Very happy with the numbers. Now I need to test out and see how it handles.
