And only enthusiasts care.

Debadging was one of the first things I did. Purely aesthetic. Shortly after, I did the side markers. I absolutely love the look.

I had an indy shop do mine. I may be alone (on this forum at least) that no replacement unit was put back, no housing used. I've had it at the dealer a few times for routine and cosmetic things, even...

CDV delete all the way!!! And shift above 3000 or 3500.

CDV delete is cheap and a non invasive, easily reversible modification. If driving is your pleasure, get that stupid valve out of there! You...

Are E92 rocker panels easy to replace?

Seriously gouged the passenger side rocker panel today backing out of my driveway: one long, deep dramatic gouge.

I think this is too deep to even bother with painting and buffing. So I imagine,...

That's too bad. Orange peel is beautiful! I absolutely love it!!! No apologies. It adds depth, texture, and sensuality.

For the shifting, consider the CDV delete. Night and day on my 328. Also a shorter, weighted knob will do wonders. There are many from which to choose. Mine's made by UUC. I haven't changed the...

Good for you! Try a shorter knob for a shorter throw too, if you haven't already.

Just learned I've been using 10% ethanol gasoline.
