The only one available really is the JB4. The only other option is Hartge which costs triple and the rest requires you to remove the ecu to send to them (no thanks).

Didn't even occur to me to take pics of my interior lol Next time

Its just Black Nappa with aluminum hexagon trim. Surprised i actually like this combo more than I'd imagine since I normally favor lighter colored interiors.

With low barriers to entry and a lack of any warranty I don't trust those piggyback tunes.

I used piggies on my first 3 N54 powered cars and there was nothing wrong with them and no warranty issues. Granted I switched to a flash for my E60 N54, but that was beacuse the cost was too good to pass up ( not Dinan obviously ).
I see nothing wrong with a piggy back solution.

Very nice and balanced sport look. If anything is missing to complete the theme it would be drilled brake discs. Not sure if it's available for this car.

To be honest....i don't miss it one bit in the F10. I prefer the sports auto in this car and its pretty damn good. Just not the type of car (for me) that makes me want a stick.

I would get the SAT again if i had to do it over.

Alan

I have to agree, the SAT is excellent. Once you get used to it, you can control the car much like a manual, actually faster, and without the clutch fatigue. I actually prefer it. I do not really use the paddles though, I feel more at home with the stick. The paddles would be more useful if both sides would toggling up or down, rather then one side up, the other side down.

Simply amazing color and photography - what is the color code of the car? Is it the space grey or the dark graphite...

A lot of people have ordered from this place in LA ( I think they are in FLA too)

I ordered mine from Schmeidmann in Denmark and after they got them from ACS (about 10 days) - they arrived in NorCal a few days later via FedEx
