    My MPE for my MY18 goes as far as the cats.

    Not sure if that helps mate. Can ask Andy if you like.

    Maybe it’s changed but the akra on my M4 didn’t replace the secondary cats. That was when I put the DPs on ;)

    Definitely not, secondary cats are untouched by all of the aftermarket ‘car back’ zorsts. Removing them gets the noise, I’ll be going Active Autowerks cat delete mid pipe on mine :grinning:

    Changing back pressure can have an impact on emissions and with the new WLTP certification they will potentially have to certify it with the optional exhaust which is a big job

    Alongside that you now are very likely to have a GPF which is even more sensitive to back pressure changes

    I was thinking it might be changes to how manufacturers are allowed to have optional exhausts... that bit about certification rings a bell - something about a manufacturer not being able to offer an exhaust that is louder that the OEM fitted one, and that there was something about 'loud exhaust' buttons etc.

    You can still have loud buttons but you have to certify in the default condition and show data that shows it doesn’t affect emissions

    Again you can offer extras but you have to certify it

    Got a nice surprise from Paul at Bavarian... Because of the delays he wangled £350 out of BMW that can be spent on anything 'accessory'
    :grinning:
    Phone reception wasn't great so thought Paul originally said "£50" so lol'd, but suspected I'd just misheard.

    I really don’t like the feel of the standard wheel, it was always being changed as I missed the alcantara AMG wheel £448 from Cotswold though, mirrors are £300, pedals are £160 (want!)

    ‘Real’ pics for you, mirrors are beautiful, can’t wait to Santa brings these :oops:

    Mirrors would look great with the other exterior carbon. Those wheels feel great to hold though and as demonstrated by @MarkM ’s picture, really lift the interior.

    Part of me hopes they extend the offer on the M4 until after I get the house move completed! :joy:

    So, all those bits then! :joy:

    Was thinking of getting royal steering wheels to make me up a custom steering wheel (somehow tie alcantara, white stitching, white and black leather together, like the interior), which would mean picking up the carbon mirrors possibly then with the BMW discount.

    Still browsing the catalogue.. . :eyes::innocent:

    I'm loving it... Its much more comfortable than my megane or focus, or even my previous 335i, dct has changed my mind about having manual transmissions, and it's great fun to chuck about a bit. Still 463 miles until the 1200 mark so it'll be booked in straight after Christmas.

    Aye, I prefer a good bit of chunk, going to do some browsing - see what other folks have come up with, design wise.

    Some folks like a skinny wheel but my hand near wraps round on itself. Don't want to be pinching the steering wheel between my fingers, lol

    I’d be going for the pedals and carbon mirror caps then have the wheel retrimmed another time.

    All 3 of those mods are awesome though!

    That’s looks a bit too bland for the interior of a San Marino M4 tbh.
