Nice car! I put one in mine a month ago. I got the part from the dealer for around $30. It's really easy DIY.

Probably it's just as fast on that track with 830whp, it's tires which limit the speed.

Yeah he commented in the vid that the run was purely to burn rubber... Not that he could go full bar and NOT burn. What I really love about the video is that at 8:57, they break the build down. Inverted e46 RHD steering rack wuut

The first turn he takes, notice the e9x totally wiping
