Thanks.

Zigfread: The RPI Scoops, BMC filters and block off plates arrived today. Will be installing them this weekend.

Quick question - Did you remove your carbon filters when you installed the BMC filters? Seems like it gives you an instant 7hp increase as the European models don't have them and are rated at 507HP. Given it is purely emissions related and the cars still pass Canadian emissions without the carbon filters I'm tempted.. Not sure I'm going to bother as I just finished going through a bunch of work to keep my warranty and don't want to risk anything that might void it.

I'll also ask my SA tomorrow and see what he thinks.

I took mine out Right away.
I took them out on my m5 as well.
And never had an issue with warranty on either car.
They are only there to stop odd smells coming back through.

Also it might be 7 hp but it feels alot more. The car sounds better
and it does have more response. Look at the charcoil filters
insanely restrictive.

You can also say my car never came with them...

Did you order your cf lower mirror covers yet? Have you found any good vendors for them?
I'm still looking around, but the ones at revozport look alright.
Might try them. I just don't want some cheap looking ones!

I haven't ordered them yet.

I'm in California once a month and was planning on picking them up locally and bringing them back. Here is where I was planning on getting them:

You have convinced me on the filter removal... Will do it when I install the BMC filters this weekend...

Thanks

Kw coils on order

the spacers did help the gap though.
Wheels are way more flush.
