How long did it take you?
I want to get rid of my wood trim in my E91

Cheers

The first piece or two took me ~15 min. Once I got used to working with the material, 5-10 min per piece.

I'd suggest getting two of the rolls (~$20 each), as one will only cut it if you cut with very little waste and don't make any mistakes when applying... unlikely if its your first rodeo!

Thanks Ian
And how easy is it removing the trim? (In the E91)
Any reason you didn't go with the lighter brushed aluminium like in the M3

Cheers

I've never pulled the trim in the e91.

If I got the alu color, I'd always be comparing it to the authentic hand brushed alu in the M3. Getting it in this color makes it different, so I won't be comparing them :P

Interior is coming along on the wagon.

Came with the car: blackgrey carpet, center console, dash

Changes already done:
M3 steering wheel
M3 shift knob
grey sport seats to black M3 seats

Just completed:
Changed from Grey leather door cards to M sport/alcantara door cards
wrapped the wood trim in 3M "brushed titanium" vinyl

Owned and will be installed shortly:
M sport Anthracite (black) pillars and headliner
M3 center arm rest (nicer leather)
black dead pedal

Still need to find:
Black wagon back seat. I'm indifferent between vinyl and leather for that.

Door cards didn't come with speaker holes, which I didn't realize was an option (I got the door cards from Europe). So, had to dremel my own:





But it cleans up nicely with the speaker in place:

Been looking at e36 M3 pictures-- looks like most of the extra muffler storage space is accomplished by hanging lower.... which I find unfortunate-- my current (stromung) muffler can't be see at all, besides the tips, because it fully tucks up behind the bumper (which I like).



Ian be beware that the OEM muffler is very bulky. Most aftermarket mufflers are slightly more compact/streamlined giving your extra space.

Do you have any e36 guys with any aftermarket m3 exhausts that they can loan for a mock up?

The touring under body has a similar exhaust routing of the m3 under body.

Maybe try to run a step header setup with a section 1 with cats possibly consider welding in some AR25 after the cats. Section 2 would be best with the supersprint resonated section 2 if your going after quiet. This setup will squeeze some more power from the s54.

I got an e36 M3 US muffler (which looks to be identical on the outside to the euro car muffler) from a local CCA member that I'm going to use for test fitment. I expect the body to hang down from the body, as it does on the e36, which will annoy me... but not as much as all this noise.

Anyway, if it fits, then I'll pay to import an S50B32 muffler.
