Love the intake... fn bada$$!
Car is off to paint today =) Hope it will not take as long as it did to install the CSL parts LOL. After paint, it I can break in the car for the 500 miles needed to set the DIFF gear. After all the break ins and fluid changes, I will work on the videos and a nice photo shoot of the car.
Are you adjusting your insurance coverage after all the upgrades?
Car has been dropped of to have the bumper and the front end re-sprayed. Should have it back by the end of the week.. YAY.
A update on driving impression. First I still have not taken the car over 4000 rpm yet so don't ask. The car feels a LOT snappier as well as has that intake rumble. From 1500 RPM up the car feels to respond like the 1M.
I have to do that still.
Might be a good idea to do that before you get it back - avoid the nightmare story of having some jackass total your car as you're driving it home from the bodyshop and not be adequately covered! Lookin' good so far!
Impressive build. I've been watching for a few months, and you have put together a great project!
I decided to do a complete breakdown on the current setup of the car in regards to parts. This also includes all those little parts that never seem to be posted when these projects are done. I hope that this will help people in the future if they decided to go down this path or just trying to find that missing part. The parts list below is just a parts listing but I have included a price break down in a Google Doc.
**Please note: these are prices as listed on the website as of 2/2013 – not what I paid for them** I have been building this car going on 11 years now.https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AsvVWLBz-tX_dDhMT1BWNkl6eFhXc0FWbFJMa0RvWEE&usp=sharing

I just updated the XLS Sheet with a few KEY parts that were missed. I also added in parts estimates based on past parts as well. Based on the current prices I would have been HOSED. Glad I got a lot of this done YEARS ago.

CSL Parts Installer
So my buddy told me I have no choice but to go to Bimmerfest this year. Guess I am going LOL. Now I have to finish the car before then UG....
So I finally have a real update. I got the car back from interior and paint touch up WOOT. Interior looks great and the CSL 1M doors look pretty good. I REALLY need to clean the inside as the car has been gone for 4 months and the shop dust builds up. So here are some quick interior images.
Update the Google spec sheet with the painters and interior contacts. Both did a excellent job on the work I requests and the prices were fair. A they say you get what you pay for and the work was A+
Thanks to Sierra Auto Body and Romans in Auburn CA.
I spent Saturday morning on 4/20 installing the passenger seat sensor. The Install was easier than I made it to be as I didn’t realize the seat sensor I needed was on the bottom of the old stock seats. So had to go over to storage and get the part and plug it in. Next step is to go to the local BMW shop to clear the passenger airbag code.
Had another Saturday free and went to the future father in laws shop to adjust the front bumper. Still trying to get it just right but we did close the gap a little more than it was. Will be working on it this weekend again to hopefully get it all just right.
Now I get it: YOU'RE MARRYING FOR THE SHOP!!
SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH DUDE not so loud
So if you are going to do something right, GO all the way with it. So I went full vanity and got a new custom plate.
I have a new tune from Evolve I will be installing to address the slight issue of the car running rich.
I have two updates. First update is I installed the new Evolve Tune. This was to address a slight running rich issue the car has at start. They also added a CSL rev match which does a better job than stock SMG tune.
Second update is a video, but I will post that later. I know I am mean.
First round of videos I have. Hope to have a few more from the people that were at the Wings and Wheels testing. Second video is a quick blast at a tunnel near the house.
Sorry audio is not better as all I have is the video recorder on the phone.
First weekend I had time to clean the car and get it ready for the 500 mile drive down to bimmerfest. As it was Mothers Day I was only able to clay bar the car, clean the engine bay and polish the wheels / brake calipers. Next few nights are polish and wax the car and detail the interior.
Here is the first steps in the cleaning process.
The rag was BRIGHT yellow to start. 4 months of work and being in and out of shops makes for one dusty motor and interior.
