Just got home from having my eisenmann X-pipe and H&R spacers (10mm spacers) installed by member TCM... I also had my dealer install Dinan FRC, Rear Sway Bar and Dinan exhaust... the Dinan alone sounded amazing but with the x-pipe it screams....the Dinan tips also give the rear a more aggressive look. As far as handling, it handles so much better now with the spacers and Dinan Stage 2 with H&R springs, virtually no body roll...
Next I have to install my RPi scoops and color matched front kidneys... the mods never end :dunno:

Glad to hear you are happy with the X pipe setup Bernie. I am sure your neighbors will know your arrival and departure times from now on. The spacers do provide a great stance... but I still hate them, *haha*.

Bernie, the car looks great. Why are you delaying with the scoops? Get those puppies in there. Trust me, as soon as you do, you will be psiied for having waited.

he's probably waiting to do the scoops when he does the grills.

Car looks awesome. I noticed your front corner amber reflectors are not on the side of the wheel well as the '08 manual is pictured. The first '08 M5 that came to the Hyannis dealer had it the same as yours, since then they have been on the wheel well. The cars looks awesome, but it would look a little cleaner w/o the amber reflectors. You just may have a tougher time of it since they are a different shape and in different location than most '08's.
BTW the invite to come down to the Cape still stands. If I'm heading up your way I'll give you a heads up. Once you hear the Evo headers coupled to the Dinan exhaust you'll be hooked.

Looks very sharp. Did you go 10mm spacers all the ways around?

No excuses! If you can take the grills out once, you can take them out twice. Consider it practice? Right now Bernie has about 15hp sitting on a shel in his garage.

Bernie, I hope you at least put the BMCs in in the interim.

the only thing holding me back is removing the grills... are they hard to remove?? Im dying to install them!! I was waiting for the body guy to take them off... :confused:
I do have the BMC's in already... did them when I removed CF and I noticed the power gain right away...
