Yeah it totally sucks... sometimes I just turn the radio off completely. I feel that way about shaving more of my fender... just so lazy to jack the car up/take the wheels off and get under there.

Yeah it is a bit much at times I do agree... I have heard the full supersprint set up with a milltek muffler and that sounded pretty "tame" and quite nice. I know forsure I want supersprint headers/section1/section2.

You gotta work at getting me a S54 first. How much do salvaged m3's go for these days? Seems like more and more people are doing the swap.
