awesome pics Kim

also in for dyno numbers, have you run with aaron yet?

me and lucas did a roll on, and the m3 walked it straight away..... but he seems to think he kept up lol

the vorsteiner bonnet is really growing on me

what's the fitment like? and what was the shipping price if u recall?

edit! ahh i think i know why i like your bonnet so much - the vents are only on one side of the bonnet crease, they aren't doubled up like on the M3 vorsteiner hood.....which is huge overkill

Thanks, yeh I am pretty happy with the power, but the boost bug has bitten so the compputer is going to be re-tuned.

Thanks but no thanks, the plate was measured to the middle and when looking at it in person it is perfect.

I will share some numbers once it has been re-tuned, it wouldn't be accurate to post up a dyno sheet at this stage. The car was run in 4th.

Thanks for the compliment Sam.

I haven't had a run with Aaron yet, it's hard to get a day when we can take both cars out.

The fittment on the bonnet is pretty damn near stock, it doesn't stick up at all along any lines or corners, the only thing is the pannel gap is about 2mm bigger then OEM. The good thing about it was that it has a cavity which you can feed the washer hozes through to the nozels on the top of the bonnet so that everything stays hidden.

To be honest I can't remember what shipping cost as I bought it so long ago (from Khoalty), but some other sizeable items I have shipped recently have cost around $400.

I know Vorsteiner used to make the VRS bonnet for the M3 (I think they have stopped making it now though), and I don't know why more people didn't jump on it. I also preffer it over the GTR, it's just a little cleaner.

Yeh, Indy from IS did the runs for me.

I thougt about euro plates back when I bought the car, but decided against it because they are huge, and I wanted small plates (hence why I went for the slimline ones), but I was thinking of trying out the black/silver plates as they are still small, just darker.

I was thinking of black/silver, as alot of the gear I have is silver, but I don't have anything gold. Whatever they are though, they have to stay slimline

Thanks for the fkn compliment. I have not ruled out a manual swap - thats going to depend on how long my transmition wants to play

I am happy with the power I dyno'd at yesterday (no harm done in saying, it was 160kw at wheels), but I can see some areas that I can squeeze some more power out of, so we shall see where that takes me

Thanks I used to have the red writing to match the BBK and caps, but I think the silver suit the car better.
