I would if I could find one for a reasonable price, this is a short term car so I probably wont. I'm about to drop $2k on 40k mile maintenance and a MP stage 1 tune.

Installed the 6WB and NBT Evo retrofit this week into the F10. Very pleased with the difference. I love the iDrive 6 and wireless full screen CarPlay. The digital cluster is worlds better too.

Attached a few teaser shots.

I purchased a set of CKS coilovers from another member last year and finally got around to installing them. Previously has a set of AC Schnitzer springs on stock m sport suspension. Couldn't be happier with the CKS coilovers. Got rid of the boat feel and hugs corners like a champ now.

Sketch warning

So, this happened last night at 11pm at night. Ida floated some road debris underneath a really dark bridge and I couldn't avoid it in time, and it gashed the sidewall a bit and developed a bad leak. Had a hell of a time finding a flat bed or tow truck with dollies that late at night, and the ETA was 2-3 hours. I gave up and shoved two tire plugs in + some tire sealant and it shockingly held air. Drove the last 20 mins to home very slowly and carefully. This was sketchy as shit and is ABSOLUTELY not safe, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. I seriously doubt this would have worked if I had anything other than a 30 series profile. The tire is going to costco for replacement, so it only needed to get me home.

"...sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do." Yup, lol! Hard-core bro! Glad you made it home OK.
