There's been a lot of trash talking on here

Bc I haven't posted pics of every square inch of my car so I have detailed the whole car and engine bay ect. So you all can see nice clean images of my car/engine ect. I'll post more of my upgrades ie braided brake lines, racing dynamics sway ect. Yes I have the Dinan front strut brace it's just not installed bc I just had the VCG replaced (and I'm looking for an X brace from a vert) and I have the real deal stamped M brake calipers I've seen older ones w/o the stamped ones...

Edit: if you need a list of every upgrade and special parts on my car I'll be happy to provide a list for the haters,

Oops left out this one...Dinan SSK

I'll crawl under the car and take photos of the racing dynamic sway and the rest of the upgrades that are under there, not the easiest photos to take as the car sits pretty low...

So have at peeps - now what's next ?

Watch out for puddles with that low CAI, if you get stuck in a really bad storm you might hydrolock the motor.

It's an option from Dinan, they do have a supercharger but they offer an array of parts for BMWs

This should help

Hmmm... Not trying to start stuff, but I guess I'm confused. Back in January, you posted all sorts of photos, including an engine shot which showed an S50 with modifications that didn't match lofty power claims. You also posted photos of a previously owned red E36, which was claimed to be an M3, but had the non-M mirrors. Now you've posted a photo of an engine bay which shows an OBD2 S52, which does not match the photo of the OBD1 S50 you posted in January, nor does it match the fact that you have an OBD1 M3, as indicated by the side markers. So, not trying to bust your balls, but what's going on here? There was a lot of dishonesty going on back then, and I thought we got it all ironed out.

These two engine bays do not match:


And here is the thread which sparked off a lot of controversy surrounding this topic back in January:

Kind of a funny read, actually.

I'm not trying to troll either, but I think it's important for all of us to be honest with one another. It was a bumpy road at first with him, but he's been totally fine for a while, so I'm just confused at this point.

I truly would like a straight answer, but with what had been shown so far from the op I won't hold my breath. Especially with historically speaking, the only ones to get so bent out of shape seen to be those who cannot give a simple, straight reply. They usually tend to be unable to do so because they have nothing to back up their claims. Op, if you can indeed back up your claims then I will extend you a heartfelt apology. Else, well, you get the picture I'm sure.

There is also no techno-violet in the s52 bay. But hell. Were just obviously geeks with zero real world experience who have nothing better to do than get offended at someone trying to pull the wool over our eyes. (oops, another sheep reference).

Edit:
I am neither trying to start shyte nor am I willing to tiptoe through the tulips to attempt to avoid offending anyone who makes extremely suspect claims, then backs them up with naught but excrement. At least Temoc not only did the work himself, but proved it. Temoc just flew off the handle really easily.

Dinan, you honestly don't have to show anyone what you have. All that matters is that you know what you have done to your car but if your going to say you have certain things, you need to have real proof that you do or else everyone's going to think your showing of something you don't have.

Has someone personally seen his car?

I think it's really sad you feel you have to post a photo documentation of your car to get a bunch of people you've never met and probably never will to believe you.

Talk about desperate.

I feel like I've seen those pics 1000x before...

Go for a spirited drive, park around a nice background and take 4-5 pics...

Not hating, it's just what the regulars here do... Take random pics at random times...
