Update: 8/25/19 Eibach Pro Street S Coilovers, Adjustable swaybar endlinks, Front and Rear strut/shock reinforcement mounts, and ECS Tuning Monoball RSM's

Installed Eibach Pro Street S Coilovers, Adjustable swaybar endlinks, Front and Rear strut/shock reinforcement mounts, and ECS Tuning Monoball RSM's to updated my tired OEM suspension. I only did a quick 5 mile test drive but do not hear any odd sounds or rubbing. I went a little lower in the front from before and have a slight rake. These paired with the Fall Line Motorsports Monoball RTAB's and Turner Motorsports Monoball FCAB's I did previously should tie in everything together nicely.

So far I love how it rides and looks. I may update the springs later if needed. I will eventually take better pics.

Forgot to make my MPACT post on here. Just like every year it was a blast. I think this may have been one of the best years due to the weather and turnout.

I didn't take much pictures but they can be found here:

http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=609328

The official MPACT video will be release later today. I will add it to the thread.

Here is a few shots of my car taken by Dan Wagener of Ultimate Klasse and Front Street Media.

Picked these up about 3 weeks ago or so. This will be the before.

I need to get to work on these and start ordering parts but finally I will be addressing/overhauling my brakes ***128513;.

Removed my fan shroud a few weeks back. I think it looks cleaner without it. Plus better pics of my polished strut bar. Strut bar is temporary until I get something else.

Garage Update:

It's been a few months in the new garage. I've put up most of my wall art and got organized to a point I'm okay to work out of for now.

Future plans:

More wall art.
Better lighting.
Fan(s) for cooling.
A second larger tool box and of course more tools.
Work bench with vise.
Quick jack or actual lift. I have the ceilings for it.
Possibly repaint the walls and redo floor.

Update: 9/27/19 IAT Sensor Relocation

I relocated my IAT sensor just below my intake and above the brake duct inlet.

I previously did live data testing of IAT temps vs ambient temps in the previous IAT sensor location. While stationary the IAT's were rising rapidly and to high levels. As soon as the vehicle began moving the temps would drop rapidly and would come very close to if not match the ambient temp.

After moving the IAT sensor closer to the brake duct the IAT's do not rise rapidly when stationary. The temps do go up but at a slower rate and do not reach temps as high as they used to in the old location. When the vehicle goes into motion the IAT's drop but not as rapidly as before. They also do not exactly match the ambient *temp. They tend to stay 4 to 10 degrees higher than ambient from what I've seen so far.

*All of this was expected and not a surprise.

For now I will keep the sensor here unless I find a reason to move it. I am also thinking of changing sensors based off recommendations I have received.


Screenshots of live temp testing before the relocation and pic of the new IAT location.

Update: 9/28/19 Vented Beauty Cover

So I picked up a spare beauty cover some time ago with the intentions to have the vents cut out. I finally decided to just go ahead and DIY this my self. I do not recommend DIY'ing this. Anyways it came out better than I expected. While I was at it I replaced the old bubbling M badge with a new one.

Replaced my original vanos line with a new one from Rogue Engineering, Inc.

I also began disassembling/stripping the paint from my 996 calipers.
