I'll post some more stuff soon. I have the full intake upgrade kit (from the 330i) plus lots of boxes of goodies from Turner and FCP. I haven't taken a good picture of my car just yet but I'm working on that, front bumper isn't great cosmetically.

Still have a diff oil change kit, oil change kit, and all my 3 stage intake goodies waiting for next weekend.

Took some pics, trying to figure out next things to do on the wagon. I could do the RoundelWerk header (identical to the active header but actually in-stock), do a tune for my 3 stage intake mani, get a cold air setup (either the turner CAI or the AFE Stg2 which is fully enclosed), or do cosmetic stuff that needs to be addressed. Honestly cosmetics are not really that important for my daily driver, and I feel like performance and maintenance should take priority over looking like a cool cucumber. There's some goofing around I'd like to do under the car, just visual inspection type stuff, but I need to find a friend with a lift so I can do it in relative comfort. 

Anyway, here's some pictures.

wow.

I'll be hitting up a couple pals this coming weekend to possibly do some more sick mods. Also, Speed-Buster pedal commander thingy coming in the mail, and finally pulled the trigger on a valentine one gen 2. Also took a look at my winters and need to replace two that are fried from the wonky shitbox M3. Nothing too exciting, but stuff is happening.

Roof rail delete?

Took me a minute haha, looks really good. If I didn't put the roof rack on mine occasionally I'd really think about it. 

Now that the roof rails are gone, I need a better front bumper. From the side profile it's painfully pedestrian appearing. And I almost kept my roof rails but decided that I don't really need to haul anything on the roof of this car.

Well, I don't know how yall do it in the big city, but down here in the south we do things a little bit differently.

So I got some products in the mail from various reputable vendors today.  Firstly, bimmerworld sent me some goodies, main part being the speed-buster pedal tuner. Installed it right away and looks great!

wow what a change!

Also, from the great state of Ohio comes a piece of tech I've wanted since I was a kid because I was that kind of kid reading dupont registry and dreaming of driving fast and evading the cops. Got a Valentine One gen 2. It has to do with a drive I'd like to do next year.

Was a good day for mail. Still waiting for my Road America plates. Thank you for reading this, please send money.

How’s the pedal tuner? I’ve seen them around but never really felt throttle response was so bad I needed one. Is it night and day or just a mild improvement?

Out of the hole and out of corners the difference is pretty awesome. My biggest complaint about my wagon was that it would search for gears and hesitate while spirited driving and accelerating out of corners. Now the power seems to be right there as soon as you tap the throttle. From a stop even my fairly anemic N52 will make my head hit the headrest. I'd say it's worth the money, and I'm really impressed.

What does the pedal tuner do? Is it something that actually becomes part of the pedal?

It's basically a signal booster that plugs into the pedal. It eliminates the factory delay by some sort of circuit wizardry. It really wakes the throttle response up.
