Thanks!

Any idea why my attached picture is a thumbnail? Or is that just my view as a new poster?

I'm hoping this will be the most sporting 5 this side of a M5. Not the fastest but the best combination of handing and involvement with an extroverted nature, it's going to be painted a Special Order Color

I did not. I remain unconvinced that it'll improve my overall driving experience. I have a 997 Carrera with PASM and only ever deploy the firmer setting at the track.

Nice spec you got too!

My understanding is that any of the items available from the M Performance catalog here;
http://http://www.shopbmwusa.com/BMWPerformance.aspx
Will be fitted by BMW at the landed USA port, VDC, prior to being shipped to your dealer.

Upside is that build reflects these parts (but not the Monroney funny enough) and you save on fitting labor.
Downside they keep your existing/previous exhaust.
