I like it. Good stance and nice look with the white body and black wheels. How does it ride with the springs, struts and shocks?

A shame nobody makes these upgraded down pipes for an all wheel drive model. It is the only mod I haven't been able to do.

That is the weird part about my VANOS noise. It is on the intake side only and only exhibits when the engine is cold. Once the engine warms up it goes away and even cold it goes away above 2000 RPM.

Vanos noise

My Vanos unit is much louder when the engine is cold than after it warms up. Do they all do that?

Yep, straight bolt on and adjustable baffle in the tailpipe so you can tune how much sound you want. I had one on my 328 coupe and loved it.

I really like black kidney grills but I almost think on yours that doesn't have the Shadowline trim the grills should match the chrome around the windows. IMHO
