Maybe if the CAI tube had some more black on it? Overall though, I think it looks pretty good

I was reunited with my car after 18 months and the perma-grin is back. Even after all that time, it still had the new car smell. I just rolled over 1500 miles. Today however, I curbed my rim. Those damn blind spots!! I was mad, then sad and spent most of the afternoon trying to fix it. It almost worked, but the paint dried a different shade of gray.

Definitely agree. That's why I suggested it to menendez though. His CAI intake has the black elbow and would look sweet! If he paints the throttle body black as well, he could have a great combo!

Well they replaced my timing chains and tensioners. That was about a month ago. They said before they could work on the car for oil consumption I had to log the oil loss 3 times. That parts done just havnt got her back in yet. To add to the irritation when they replaced the chains they did something to the radiator fans. They won't come on. Which is an issue now it's warming up here in Ohio. I noticed when I took a nap in the car for 30 min (30 degrees outside) and I woke up to hot almost burning smell. Coolant temp was 230 degrees! Called dealer and they said 230 won't cause damage but 240 will. Said to not let car idle long until I can get it back to them...

Wow, that's crazy. I'd take it to them asap and make them fix that for sure. How's the car feel with the new chains and tensioners?

You know it felt great...I thought it alms it felt like it had more power than when I had all the mods...but now I find myself think it is sluggish. The new thing is it feels like when the power is there it is inconsistent. Like when the pedal is on the floor and rpms is rising it will throw you back then let up then throw u back etc...no idea what would cause that.

Sure that's not just normal? I remember one of the things I did like about my trifecta tune was that it seemed like it made the power more consistent. I remember before the tune, it was almost the same as what you describe. It would throw you in the seat but let u go and then grab u again. After trifecta, it was just straight power through the powerband. But I am an auto so I don't know if that makes a difference

I agree. After a week with my tune my M6 just pulls more, and more consistently

I remember when the car was completely stock it would take off decently, then go a little flat, and then just come back roaring at around 4,000 rpm.
