No , no tints for me. They hinder my vision.

Anyways theres something that I've wanted to ask you since a long time. How about starting a new thread on how you actually decided to buy the cars that you own / booked. Would be interesting to read on what goes on in the minds of a potential supercar buyer. How is the decision to own a Lamborghini or a Ferrari or a Porsche finalised? Does he read magazine reviews, watch Top Gear, post in 'What Car' section of a Supercar forum etc etc.

I'm sure 100% of the members here would like to know these details.
Sure, that would be a good idea.

Don't like the white lights inside. When's the exhaust and the other 'important' bits getting to you?

The drop is fine . I had two friends who are 6 feet tall and weigh more that 100 kg approx sit in the back . The drop was still fine and no rubbing.

I am in Chicago as I write this and will take delivery of the exhaust , CSL trunk lid and CF rear diffuser this week.

Nice. It is my understanding that the installation of these X pipes would require manual welding. Have you found such a place here?

My guess is Karan is getting all installations done from the BMW service center.

At the moment I am getting only the Eisenamann Race exhaust with connecting pipes. These connecting pipes make it a direct bolt on and hence avoid any cutting / welding. All this is done by the BMW work shop . They are expert in the installation of such things (they already did a exhaust install for a M5 client) and I have already given them the go ahead for such things as we have a mutual understanding on warranty.

Since I will get the X pipes and cats installed later , I will do my research and if I feel that there is a margin of error, then I will do the needful. As such the thing to look for is the construction of the exhaust system and the factory welding. If they are of a faulty nature , then every thing else is useless.

This was done for the white M5 from Delhi. I am sure by the time your done with the car it is going to sound and look awsome. Are you planning to play with the Bhp or want to leave it stock.

Did you mean you had two burly dudes who each weigh 100Kg or did you have two leggy supermodels who weigh 100Kgs between them!?

Have you weighed those rims? Be interesting to know what they weigh.

Yep , the weight is 25lbs for each rim. Pretty light if you ask me.
