The intake is great, gives an addictive noise every time you press the pedal!
Not sure on a pre filter, not convinced I need one. Not very dusty where I am

I have 7mm ACS spacers on the rear, so effectively running ET36 rear

So, I pretty much want my car to look like yours...
If you could, could you give me the brand or number for the front bumper, grille, rims, rear bumper, and headlights, oh and the spoiler. It looks great

My car came from the factory with the M Tech bumpers and spoiler etc.

Headlights are factory xenons with Umnitza Orion V2 angel eyes.
Grills are from Umnitza also.

Rims are AC Schnitzer Type 3 non racing.

Just standard exhaust with oem chrome tips

I did have an AC Schnitzer trim, but couldn't get it to sit right, as I would've had
to cut the exhaust to make it fit perfect

Yep, got 4 x orange hub adaptors with the wheels...genuine acs wheels won't fit without them.
I've got 7mm ACS spacers on the rear, so don't need the adaptors for the rears

Really like the results

After being outbid on the ACS exhaust last week, looked at the other options and
took delivery of this yesterday.

It's an Eisenmann with 76mm tips, which should look even better when I get the
metal polish at it Hopefully getting it fitted at the weekend

Exhaust going to get fitted next Saturday (if I can get an appointment), so in the
meantime, decided to break out the Autosol and steel wool.

Used fine grade 0000 stuff, which is perfect for stainless steel, really makes the
difference. Did the entire exhaust, top and bottom, even inside the exhaust tips!

Went and got the Eisenmann fitted earlier.
First impressions are that it's not very different to stock, just gives a deeper tone
and louder wen taking off. One of the guys demonstrated it as it came down
from the lift, and there's a nice burble and a few pops when coming off the
accelerator.

The fit is perfect, fills in the gap in the diffuser perfectly!

So a week on after having the Eisenmann fitted, I've started to like the sound
alot more, and love the look. The sound is nice and bassy around town, and
almost silent except at wot on the motorway. Great all rounder IMO

As I said, looks great on, the 76mm tips are just right.

Some pics that have been on the camera a while, just got the laptop working
for the first time in an age, so not iPhone pics for a change!

Proper pics of the aFe intake I installed a while back






And a few pics with the chrome grills and Eisenmann backbox on
