Looking to mod my F10

Hey everyone, so i've searched a bunch of threads, but most seem to be older. I just picked up an F10, and from my other rides, one might gather that I like to go fast. I was thinking of getting some titanium downpipes made and then tuning the car. This should be decent for now, but with so many options out there for tuners, can you guys chime in with your experiences? I haven't decided if I want to go with an exhaust for now. I have ordered drop in filters for now and a few appearance mods. If anyone can let me know some other things I can do that are fairly simple mods I would appreciate it!

You will get a lot of different answers for the tuner question. There seems to be a lot of them out there with good results. Some make more conservative tunes than others (especially for "off the shelf [OTS] tunes). I bought my '13 M5 in October, so I'm waiting for winter to pass before I install a tune on mine. I'm leaning towards Bootmod3 (BM3) or OpenFlash. Other common companies like Dinan, ESS, ActiveAutowerks, have OTS tunes. There is a JB4 option as well.

Regarding the downpipes, these are another popular and easy mod. I suggets not paying top dollar as most of them seem to be about the same in quality although some brands tend to fit better. You probably know this already but catless DP's will smell and will require tuning out the emissions codes.

Good luck and keep us posted what you do!

This car is just a daily beater. I have a twin turbo Huracan for real speed. PMed you about parts, maybe downpipes would be a good fit....
