    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Wheels and brakes have arrived!

    ADV goodness.....

    For a 20 inch wheel, its extremely light! I can lift it effortlessly with one hand.

    Brembo BBK, made in Italy!

    Talk about a big rotor! My phone looks so small.

    My full Akrapovic titanium system is also here, that should arrive on my doorstep next week.


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Very nice upgrades, love those brakes...

    Congrats!


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    yes, nice parts


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Love these brakes. Would say they should be standard...


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    tso:

    Love these brakes. Would say they should be standard...

    Indeed, they had to be.

    Thomas,

    have you done any brake upgrade?

    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

     Hey Mike, I have almost forgotten about this thread.  A very close friend of mine has your twin car, M3 Edition in Monte Carlo blue like yours.  He has done a few things to his car like yours, such as the technocraft stuff.  He also has a M3 GTS engine cover, and M3 GTS steering wheel.  At the rear, he has ACS diffuser, and the full Akra ti exhaust with black tip.  For wheels, he has the Forged 360 wheels with carbon fibre centre.  Love his car!  Oh, you are going to love the exhaust.  I love driving his car just to listen to the exhaust!  Here are a couple of crappy photos I took of his car previously...

    WAY,

    Does your friend's M3 have aftermarket software?

    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

     Yes he does.  It's the Akra ECU which he also used on his M3 sedan with the akra full exhaust.


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Full Akrapovic is here!

     

     


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    I love the quality those Acrapovic exhausts appear to have! Is there anything to be gained by replacing the exhaust collectors too?


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    tasteful mods Mike.

    Wont you haven any issues with motorplan and the Akra exhaust?


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    No CEL light. Sound is amazing! Fit and finish are better than OEM!


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Well done Mike, the wheels are a little too big for my taste, other than that, mthe car looks much better than stock!

    We need soundfiles!


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Looking very good, due to the black colour I find the size of the rims quite appropriate. I do believe your exhaust tips are not exactly horizontally aligned though...


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Very nice

    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Love this look. The yellow calipers and the black wheels fit very well...once again a Mike S project we can sit back and envy. Well done Mike. 

    How is the breaking, can you during daily driving feel a difference ?

    /Thomas


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

     M3 Perfection this car is ridiculous, best of all is you can use it as a daily drive too 


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Looking very sharp and better than OEM. Just so refined. It's amazing what some high quality after market mods can do to the looks of a car.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Very nice Mike

    With the full Akra and other mods, you should be around 460 hp at the crank

    How the car drives and goes?

    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for all the kind words! Glad you like the pics and mods. I haven't gotten to drive this car too hard yet, I need to bed the brakes in  


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

     Long time Mike! Bump for updated pics on the M!


    Re: It's official, I'm a ricer...

    Great set of mods indeed.  Please keep us posted with updated pics.
