I still need to retrofit these to a prefacelift / M3 someday. Electrically it's simple. Fitting the internals into the old housings is probably going to be tough though

When you say engine management light, do you mean the "EML" light? That has something to do with the throttle control. Does your cruise control work?

1500 is what I'd consider to be the upper limit for daily driving. 99% of the time I'm at 1000 rpm (and keep in mind the m3 idles at 900; in a non-M I could go lower)

What problem are you having...

B-line Intake for the M3.

Cost wasn't terrible ($400 I think), but I couldn't hear it with the windows up and it felt a bit slower than stock. Switched back to stock pretty quickly. Now I have a...

You should grab the dash -- more knee room and that driver side "glove box" is nice to have.

I add a small amount at the friction point. Not enough to accelerate or raise the RPMs

No don't raise the rpm at the friction point. Just don't let it drop much either. You will have to add gas to keep the rpm steady

I wouldn't blip the upshifts either. I add a tiny bit of gas,...

Is that really how you're supposed to shift? I haven't tried, but that seems like it would feel incredibly awkward. I've always just used the ball of my foot with my heel off the ground.

I'd buy the M3. Only reason I'd do a swap is if I had a sedan and wanted to keep the 4 doors. I'd never add F/I since it's just a pain to deal with if you run into any issues

I give gas before I start releasing the clutch pedal (enough to raise it to 1k RPM or so), and add more gas at the friction point (just enough so that the RPMs don't bog)

For up shifting, I...

Yeah definitely go with the 330. It's not so much faster than a 325 so as to be dangerous. If you buy a 325, you'll be wanting to upgrade before long.

I would also say that you're best off just...

As far as I know, the only difference is the 540 doesn't have the gear recognition sensor. I've heard of M5 guys tapping the hole for that and running 540 boxes
