Its actrully a steptronic with reinforced tranny and diff.
I talked to RDSport before I purchased this vehicle. They said after they did several tests with the R54 motor; they found out that the stock steptronic transmission can hold the power a lot better then "stock" manual or SMG tranny. So they suggested me to get steptronic.

At first I found it weird; since I blew 2 steptronic transmissions on my E46, but I guess they were right.

Here are few pieces of infos I would like to edit, because there are few misprints in that artical.

1. RDSport's brake system is not manufacture by Brembo. European Car Magazine accidently put Brembo and RDSport's name together.

2. They put "0-60 mph: 5.8sec" which is incorrect. The correct info is "0-62 mph: 4.5sec".

3. They put "Top speed: 193mph" which is not right. The correct info is "Top speed: 200mph".


European Car Magazine will have a notice for everything above on their next issue as edited.

In order to take out the headlight, you have to remove the front bumper as well. There are few bolts underneath the headlight.

Thumbs Up Great looking front mod.

I'm still hoping you can post a pic of the 6 more directly from the side. I think I may have already sent you a note on this. Sorry if I'm duplicating. I have RD wheels destined for a 650 cab.

The original motor was taken out and a RDSport R54 motor was put in its place.

Can you lower it anymore? I saw a black Hamann 645ci in person and that thing is slammed to the ground compared to yours. I like the RD kit better, your car is CLEANNNN.

1. take out the headlights

3. take it out from the oven then take the clear cover apart fomt the headlight body
4. take out the yellow reflector and paint it black. wait for it gets dry then put it back in
5. apply a little more glue. put the cover back on. put it back to oven for few minute then you will have it.


Hope this will help you or I believe MITE46 just did similar thing to his E46 facelift coupe's headlight to install the halos. You might want to do a search on it

thanks for the instructions

but damn, that's like several hours of work to get rid of the ambers on the e63. you can swap out amber reflectors on an e46 in 2 minutes

i'm sure he can lower more, but that's his daily driver, so i guess the ride height suits the function
