I'd go fuel psi and AFR over egt, but thats just me never seeing egt guage on a gasser.

Now diesel is a different story, you wont catch me owning any diesel, stock or not, without a pyro. I even have a handheld temp guage to troubleshoot which cylinder has a bad injector.
Car already has a fuel pressure gauge, its in the engine bay right on the fuel line going into the carb. I have vaccume gauge around somewhere if needed.

RSM's?
"clutch fan delete"
SAP delete
is the rest of your cooling oem?

Should probably mention the cage and seats and wheel and whatever other safety stuff. Maybe even tire specs? idk...

About $300... If paypal doesn't refund me than my banker will...

Looks like the BMW M design department has moved to japan.



FYI, the only F30 available with halogen lights is the most basic 328i.

I like it, BUT..... on this M here the stripe is tacky and the rims are ugly, they should of been more like aggressive, or something. There are other pics around with a nice color M and nicer Rims, But this one right here looks ugly. I like the front face, looks aggressive, if people don't like it, it'll grow on them, Once M enthusiasts start hooking them up and personalizing them, I am pretty sure we will see them more out there, depending on the whole package, I am planning on purchasing one, "Planning". Want to see the outcome of this new M. Just my opinion........
