Welcome aboard. You do need to lose the "Acura" temporary plate.

If you are inclined to mod, many of us have the RPi (Race Precision Inc) scoops and block off plates and BMC filters (and remember to do the charcoal filter delete). RPi is a sponsor so there should be a link on the right side of the page. There are other cold air products and vendors. I'm just recommending something I have on my M6. Cost is reasonable.

When you get a chance to take more photos, you can post them in this thread: How many M6 owners are there on m6board.com. Please post your car here if delivered

Mark, thanks for the info. I thought that the stock air intakes from BMW are already tuned to get the best performance? What is the benefit of installing the rpi system? Also what is the charcoal delete? I appreciate your input.

Thanks

RPi has scoops that mount in front of the radiator which direct cold air into the intake tract with greater effect the faster you are going. They also (separately) sell block off plates which go in the air box (where the filters are). The BMC filter have less resistance than the stock filters. And the stock charcoal filters can be taken out and simply not used. They are a California emission item which is not even legally required for other states but BMWNA did not want to sell a 49 state version of the car and a Cali version, so everyone gets the charcoal filters. They only effect emissions during cold starts. The rest of the time they just contribute to more resistance in the intake track.

The total of these changes are you can move move air into the S85 V-10 engine - a good thing! RPi has instructions so it is within the range of being a DIY mod. But search the Board on how to partially remove the front bumper to get access to the area in front of the radiator. Don't just yank the front kidney grilles out. Thieves do that but then they don't care as much about broken mounting tabs.

Be sure to order the block off plates - they are not included in the RAM Air kit (but they are cheap). The RPi folks are known for their customer service so it should be a pleasant buying experience. Ask them about the trunk placards if you have a sick sense of humor.

Mark, now I get it. I will definitely check out RPI and order that stuff soon as I can. Btw, removing the Acura plate holder is the first thing I did when I got home.

Congrats and welcome! You are in for the ride of your life. The S85 just keeps piling the speed on, no matter the circumstance. You will be amazed after your M3. The RPI upgrades make a big difference for very little financial outlay.
Good luck and keep us posted.
