I also completed a body work for my 3 GT. Got the rear spoiler wrapped in carbon fiber vinyl.

Really interested to know more about the results of RaceChip install. Do share where you got it from, how hard the installation was in reality and would you recommend it? It's the only thing I've been seriously considering but everyone says piggyback chips are not good for the engine.

Also is there any way for the chip to take advantage of your upgraded intake and exhaust?

Service Update;

Surprisingly i forgot to update the thread of this service which i got done a few months back but anyway here goes;

This service was done @ 24,256 km at Navnit Motors.

The ULTIMAT3 - F30 BMW 328i. EDIT: Upgraded with ///M Exhaust & Injen Intake!-imageuploadedbyteambhp1485767905.617119.jpg

The work included an oil change (5L), oil filer change, A/C microfilter change & general check up.

The ULTIMAT3 - F30 BMW 328i. EDIT: Upgraded with ///M Exhaust & Injen Intake!-imageuploadedbyteambhp1485767987.562767.jpg

There was a rattle orignating from the rear right side of the seat which used to come only when someone sat, this was identified & sorted;

The ULTIMAT3 - F30 BMW 328i. EDIT: Upgraded with ///M Exhaust & Injen Intake!-imageuploadedbyteambhp1485767957.695348.jpg

I did not get the washing done as surprisingly it was at an additional cost of a whopping Rs 2500, so i avoided that & instead soon after i got this done for Rs 560;

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...ml#post4052106 (The ULTIMAT3 - F30 BMW 328i. EDIT: Upgraded with ///M Exhaust & Injen Intake!)

Total cost was aprox INR 16,844/- (Incl. Taxes)

Awesome job, buddy. I like your approach being objective and trying maximum to avoid prejudices.

Saw your video as it came in my subscription box, you have got a good fan following on YouTube. Keep it up, nice to see good, quality videos coming from India. I believe your brother helps you with the videos, convey my regards to him as well.

Yes, it was a shrill squeak from the rear left seat / backrest. Used to only come when it was occupied.

But the good news is that its SOLVED
