I've been running the ESS TS2 kit on my 328Ci for years, as a daily driver. I've put more than 100k miles on the car with the kit installed, and I'm almost hitting 200k miles with the car itself. Haven't done anything special except keep up with regular maintenance at normal intervals. This is the most reliable F/I kit you can buy, in my opinion. Mind you, I don't drive it like an idiot, I very rarely do launches. But I'll still have an Audi S4 or S5 driver know where to stick it if the opportunity presents itself ;-)

The most important thing that hasn't changed: after all those years it still puts a smile on my face whenever I punch it.
bam, just what i needed! thank you so much! will look into the subframe reinforcement.
