i was worried about this too, but no, it sounds stock when there is no load on the engine (cruising) with both exhaust and intake, its only when you push it they come to life, the intake needs to be over 4k to come alive, im a very happy bunny with how its performing so far.

I deliberately bought the supersprint for the fact its not as 'loud' as other makes, i researched and found it doesn't suffer from drone and you dont sound like a 'barry/chav' as its more beefy sounding than raspy, if you get my meaning

Cheers, yeah I wanted a good fit, it was worth the extra cash, it's gorgeous!!

I would have gone that way with the bumper too, but it would have meant m3 wings (fenders) then that would have been strange without doing the back ones too, so it was a step too far!

I would love to do the CSL roof but that seems excessively costly and troublesome to do too! Prefer to put that money going towards a ESS Stage 2

M3 Instrument Cluster installed

Looks gorgeous

From my research you need to match a pre-facelift with a pre-facelift M3 cluster this is important, If you have an M54 engine then the oil temp will work, this is confirmed as i just got it working

Im getting my pressure sensors swapped over Monday so if that works then i can test the traction control issue then, although this shouldn't happen due to me getting a pre-facelft m3 cluster for my pre-facelift 330ci. fingers crossed

The tamper dot and traction light is on, plus its showing the clusters mileage and not my cars, but we should be able to get rid of that with PA Soft (when it turns up)

Known issues:

Wont illuminate at night - Mine does see above
Oil Temp doesnt work - mine does due to being 330
Tamper dot and traction light on - This to be fixed
Traction control dis-engaged - tbc

Tested and working:

Oil Temp
indicators
Speedo - tested against gps
Revs - seems spot on to me took it close to limiter
Cruise control light
MPG, MPH Time etc
Water temp
Petrol
