I went with Stage 1 about 3 weeks ago and loved it....I put down 560rwhp (Dynojet) on my worst run of 4 with 91 fuel. That's 630HP crank at my weakest when the engine was beginning to run hot. I'll tell you, I was pulling on 600HP cars (weighing 1,000 less) driving home from SEMA (Vegas to LA).

- 550+ HP FBO C5 Z06
- 600+ HP C7 Stingray
- 4 car gap against Stock F12 M6

2nd gear felt like 1st gear, and 3rd gear felt like 2nd LOL!!! That's an understatement....the tune is consistent. Idle is stable...power is certainly noticeable. Although some people would say gains are conservative, the performance is CONSISTENT and that's what matters more to me.

Upgraded to Stage II last week for the Downpipes...and I can tell that the car is definitely above 600 RWHP. Going on the Dyno next week to find out soon. I just purchased RK intakes and will do runs before and after installation.

For anyone thinking "videos or bust" - PM me your email or cell haha

Why put it away? There are many Dry days and salt free roads (after rain) in our area. I drive mine all year round and the car looks great. Bad weather days I keep it in the garage. Dry days I drive

It's a weekend toy, I have always done the same thing w my weekend toys. Once they salt the roads it's off the road for a few months derailed and under car cover. My cars never see rain or any weather. I wish I could drive it on dry days, but something about the roads being salted I cringe. She's put away waiting on some parts to come in then it makes the spring so much more enjoyable, almost like I got a new car lol!

Had the roof, shark fin, and rain rails wrapped in 3M gloss black. Glad I decided to wrap the rain rails all the way down the A-pillar on the windshield. Think it flows better with the roof line. Have seen some without it and didn't look right to me. Matches the OEM paint job the lucky F90 M5 and F8x M3/M4s have with the CF roof.

Had looked into having it painted, but couple body shops told me it'd be more cost effective to wrap it and would allow me to go back to stock for resale if I ever needed to.

Thanks! I'm quite happy with the results. It was a great local shop here in Atlanta. My car was the scrub car there There was a 458, GTR, 720S, and Huracan getting full wraps.

Figure for $300 if I don't like it, I can tear it off and if it gets worn in a year (doubtful), I can just get it redone.

Yes! But you'll have to wait 2 days...I just dropped off the car to get my wheels refinished. I'll post some as soon as I get it back.

@YanoM5 Please excuse the messy garage and crappy phone pics. I can get some wider shots with a real camera later. This was just snapped in the garage when I remembered and there wasn't enough room for me to move further back.

Continuing with the black and white contrast theme, installed OEM M performance CF mirror caps this weekend. It's a pain trying not to break those tiny little tabs!

Hand washed and waxed today to get all the salt grime off the beast.
