Before I forget: Saturday arvo, came across a silver 330ci facelift with quad exhausts. Euro plates starting with TQW or something similar. Anyone here?

Yep stock exhaust except for that Golf tee mod thing, doesn't make much of a difference though...

Nah had a hpf stage 2 clutch put in, but during the process the car did not start so had to you're it to BMW. Pushes through gears good now but really bad on take off, I think it's cause the smg clutch adaptation programming thing was not done. Have to sort that out

it sounded good, but the gear shifts made me think twice whether it you you or not. Seemed like slower shifts making me think that maybe it was a manual.

I guess you were probably on a less agrgessive SMG setting.

It was on second highest seeing but wasn't pressing the pedal when shifting therefore slower shifts. new clutch so trying to be gentle.
Have to use your inpa that you successfully installed eventually I think.

Yehp.. I'm in enjoying my e93 very much but that distinctive rasp of the e46 M3 just makes the hair on my arms stand up.
