    Flossmann Carbon roof
    CSL diffuser
    CSL trunk
    Plastic back windows

    Thanks guys!

    I haven't driven it much but i have a couple of clips from some short test drives right after the supercharger install. Made with my cell, so it's terrible quality, but at least you get an idea of the sound...



    I also got a new rollbar mount for my gopro cam, so i made a test movie to see the angel and things like that.

    haha. Don't know why anyone would neg rep you for that coment. But i can answer why i choose ESS... And don't neg rep me for it... Click here to enlarge
    I know AJ is a great tuner so my software is right where it needs to be. And I owned one of the cars ESS used as a test vehicle when they developed this kit, so i know what kind of abuse the hardware can handle.. I live in Norway, not too far away from their office here, so i know i'll get the support i need if anything should happen.. And i know AJ and Hans as stand up guys. That's pretty much why...

    yeah, i'm really happy with how the new mount worked out. Pretty much happy with all of the gopro stuffClick here to enlarge

    It's a CAE shifter.. PeeBee motorsport did the install, so i'm not too familiar with the system. But can find it here.

    Here's the dynochart

    I'm guessing the shifter is sequential?? If so.. might want one.

    I haven't measured the weight yet, but i'm hoping it's close to 2900lbs..

    No, it's not sequential. It's a standard 6speed manual gearbox, as you can see in my test vid.. You can use this shifter on a sequential gearbox also though.

    I was wondering if the shifter was sequential, like a gate shifter. Or is there a pattern? Can you simply move the shifter forward or back to change gears?

    No it's not a sequential gearbox/shifter. It's a standard e46 m3 gearbox with a different shifter. Standard gear pattern. It's just like a shortshift kit with a different shifter, but in this case it's one package if you know what i mean.

    So if it is a standard pattern, what exactly is different about it? I have a SS kit and the Jaffster shifter(which is tall). Does this shifter have any special features that keep you from missing shifts, or hitting the wrong gear? I under the reverse lock out.. but does it make a big difference in shifting quality and reliability?

    I've looked on the web site for the company and it really hasn't answered these questions for me. Thanks for answering my questions btw!

    You're welcomeClick here to enlarge

    Since i haven't completed the build, i haven't gotten to test the reability that much... But as of now i'm very happy with it. Shifts very fast and haven't missed a shift yet, but i can't see any features that prevents me from it. I don't know how your shift feels, but if your happy with them, i'd say stick with your current systemt. I can't see any big differents from mine except from mine being bolted to the chassis, so there's not alot of play when you shift..
