Sounds like most of your mods would work on my Honda S2000.

650 Ryder - What does 2011.5 ///M3 mean? The 2011 M3 was in production from March 2010 until July 2011; I wasn't aware that there were any changes during the production run.

I had one back in 99 and they are great cars!

And. Lol. Yes. I was on the fence on the megan and was looking at akra but once i heard it and it was basically for free, i decided to get it and try. Why not? I always refer to it as my cheapy exhaust or pos exhaust!

But kw clubsports and te 37 are some of the best parts you can buy. Building a double duty dd / track car. You wont find forged lighter wheels at that cost with their history. None of these designer wheels for show that break , nor bbs which are too much to spend on wheels imo.

Thanks. Any idea how your car differs from the 2013 M3 (if at all)?

BBS wheels are for show not go. They are too heavy for track wheels but look great. The Comp wheels are made by BBS so even BMW recognizes their quality............Phil

BMW apps is all but that can be coded into my combox. 11.5 is not an official BMW year model but we enthusiast have created it to understand when some features changed. 11.5 was also when the two tone seat became available.........Phil

Copy that. Thanks. You're pretty knowledgeable concerning M3s.

yeah I know - I'm looking into te37 in mag blue and just mount rs3 on them. They look great AND are light for the track. As far as show, I have shaved reflectors and matte black grills LOL. That's about all the show I'll put into the car.

OK, just when I thought I had it figured out...

What would the build date on a 2011.75 be and how would it differ from a 2011.5 and a plain vanilla 2011?

HAHA - does anyone ever have these cars all figured out?

Some research on the other forum states that the 2011.75 had APPS and 2011.5 had tech package replaced by convenience package (or to be included in), combox, and I believe ASS (auto start/stop).

I could be all wrong though.

Actually, you're bang on. The 2011.75 had the tech pack replaced with Convenience, and the Combox is standard, with ASS.

Dinan makes some quality products, and having your warranty intact is just icing on the cake. I have their intake, Pulleys(ordered), and CF strut bars.

Dinan for me is what fit, I'm sure your mods are going to be great. i have an incredible indy shop in the NYC area and have done all my BMWs through motor works west. i am satisfied that the quality of the mods from Dinan (and i suppose, their marketability when i decide to one day say goodbye) are worth the cost

Have you crossed shop other companies? I think dinan is the safest way to go though but some of the parts are just confusing to me. Stage 3 suspension with NO shock upgrade and progressive springs?
