well yeh, in terms of air temp, it's impossible to get air colder than the ambient temp. in terms of that, the stock setup is pretty much as good as you can get...unless you wanna attached your intake to an air-conditioner

just wanted to see if i could recreate the simota/gruppe M intakes for cheap, and i've managed to, so

was waiting to turn right.. no cars in the other direction
light goes green for cars going straight
I didnt get the arrow, so im like WTF.. and just went, seeings as there were no cars going in the other direction

Little did i know an unmarked cop was at the petrol station on the corner... soon as i went through i saw him and was like "f**k thats a cop" he followed me for about 200 metres and didnt put his lights, then i was outside my house and the red and blue lights start flashing..

i tried to reason with him saying i didnt get the arrow, when i clearly should of, and there were no cars around.. his like, there is no discression when it comes to red lights..

ooh, got my new gaiters in the mail today. they're a shade too light, but that's just my old leather. perfect match for the new 3 series cream leather though. sigh. the gear shift gaiter was easy enough to do, but the handbrake one is effing hard to get to sit properly on the plastic frame. and if it does, it prevents the plastic frame from clicking in. argh!
