Bought it new from a user on this forum who claims it's the same lip as ECS Tuning.

UPDATE - VIBRATION HAS RETURNED

I wrote about the vibration extensively here:
http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=591064

The gist of it is that there is a rear vibration that is very very faint. It happens at 30MPH or right at 2.5K RPM in 2nd gear or 3.5K RPM in 3rd gear.

At some point, when I'm in a left sweeper at an autocross or a left U-turn, while accelerating out under load, the vibration is more pronounced.

I've since brought it in for the follow work:
  • Front diff bushing
  • Diff cv
  • New diff oil

I can't replicate the more pronounced vibrations anymore at the autocross but I still feel the subtle vibrations in the same speed and RPM. My mechanic is unsure of the issue at this point and will take hours (read: $$$) to diagnose. Since it's not getting any worst, I'm going to drive it as is until it gets worst.

Oh and here's a pretty sweet shot that I took with the new angel eyes. The photo is a bit darker, but I like the way the Interlagos Blue looks in this lighting.

EXHAUST MOD - SUPERSPRINT SPORT SECTION 3

Ok. I know I should've gone with Euro headers and Euro section 1 first. Everybody says there's where all the power is at. But... Turner had a sales on Supersprint exhausts and I couldn't pass it up. Brand new section 3 for $1400 and free shipping.

So I'm doing it the other way around and doing the Section 3 first. Had to purchase new exhaust mounts to install the new Section 3.

Here's my quick take on the exhaust so far. It's a lower tone than the stock exhaust and about 30% to 40% louder. It's perfect for someone like me because I don't want it to be too loud, but it also opens up when I'm on the throttle.

However, it's still a bit raspy and yes, it does drone at 2.5K RPM. It may not drone that bad, but it does drone.

Probably going to get a SuperSprint resonated section 2 in the future. Anyways, here are some photos and a video.

I have the same muffler. Sounds perfect.
