Also, waiting for Mike to finish up my steering wheel re-wrap
Congrats on the Eisenmann Exhaust Jon!!! You're going to love it!

Thanks Charlie

I'll be doing a before and after sound/video clip. Should be amusing with the stock 323 exhaust at first LOL. I've always wanted an Eisenmann, took about 4-5 yrs to actually pull the trigger, but the day has finally come.

UPS just came 30 mins ago with the Eisenmann! But not all good news here...
Received the box, and it was opened. Box was pretty beat up, granted it did just travel from Germany to Illinois (Eisenmann HQ - IND) to Virginia. I was really surprised at the lack of packaging, because there really wasn't much inside.

Still trying to stay optimistic, it does look gorgeous and I am excited to hear it. Also, it only weighs ~20-25lbs

Another update:
Mtech 2 Rear and Sideskirts installed, along with the Eisenmann Exhaust Now, the fitment isnt perfect but that's what you get when you dont go OEM. Overall I am very satisfied when the end result. Here are a few photos, some before and others after. They're a few small little chips and nicks in the bumpers, but a little Dr. Colorchip should take care of those.










Next up is to do the 330 brake system swap, all parts are sitting in my living room ready to be bolted on. Coby wheel is still in production, hopefully done sooner rather than later. I think some will like the steering wheel addition, its not your typical M3 steering wheel.

That is all for now.

Yup they are in the works, just waiting for the right moment to pull the trigger on a set. I might just go with the aftermarket ones from modbargains, DDM tuning or Khoalty. Any bad reviews on those?

It's not finished yet, but I would only assume its going to look amazing. Mike does great work, and if you see other members rewrapped steering wheels, they speak for themselves.

I would not recommend going aftermarket (unless you had a sedan in which you had no choice. haha). They do not compare to the quality and look different than OEM. When compared side by side, the aftermarket looks cheap. There are both good and bad reviews, but the aftermarkets are known to lose some LED's. I would just save a couple hundred more and go with OEM. Definitely worth it!

Thanks Matt for the input. I've been looking at some partout threads in the classifieds to see if I can get my hands on an OEM set
