Can't wait to hear what it sounds like. What do you plan to do come e-test time without the cats? Does the evolve tune remove the CEL for the post cat sensors?

Got most of the way through this this afternoon. MAJOR PITA!!! I figure total time will be about 5 hours. Not so bad, but it definitely requires an arsenal of tools and creativity.

I just e-tested this year, so I'm ok for another 2 years. By that time I will probably have cats welded in to a custom section one to swap out. The evolve tune will clear the CEL as well as make the most out of the set up. However, some people get lucky and somehow don't throw a CEL running catless. Something to do with BMW's emission recall made the post cat sensors much less sensitive.

Same suspension I run. You'll love em. Where abouts in central park are you? I haven't seen another M in the area. You should come to the fender roll off and introduce yourself.

As for alignment. Go to canadian tire on carling and ask for Ralf and get George to do it. Depending on how low you went, it might not be possible to get back in spec. I'm pretty low and just outside of spec, nothing that concerns me or would make me lift the car or get adjustable control arms in the rear or front camber plates though. My car is only street driven so that adjustability just seems like over kill for me.

Seriously, this is why I always try to give thumbs up to any obvious bimmer guys I see.

Blows me away that cars like beem3r's sit in garages and I never see th about. Of course, I put 1000km on my e30 last year.

So, is the exhaust done and if so, how are you liking it?

Yup it's all done, and I'm liking it a lot. Not too loud unless you really get on it. Noticeably quicker, cant wait to get tune to make the most of the set up.

No check engine either
