The alcantara trim is nice. What was the wait time to get something like this. Was it hard to put it in.

Thanks, I like it too.
They had it in stock so i didn't have to wait for long, the shipping time was approximately 1 week inside the EU.
The install took about 1-2 hours but i was very careful not to break any plastic tabs. Otherwise the process is quite simple. You can follow the "newtis" instructions for trim removal and install.

I wonder why those nuts are only for 68mm studs. They look like they are open on the ends.

I'm running 75mm Apex studs, would love to get some more durable nuts for them.

Is there a way you can take a pic of the whole interior with that alcantara radio trim panel. Just want to get an idea of how it would look inside.

Well, i don't know either. They are open and there is thread all inside so i also can install them on my 75 mm studs.

Today i went to the stealer to diagnose my Idrive restart issue. They did a software update as i expected and it looks like solved the issue. I hope not just temporarily.
And also here is my Ventus Veloce rear bumper spoilers i've just installed recently.

Yesterday I had some time and did some test run on stock map and Stg2 RON93 OTS map to have some numbers after the Akra exhaust and Pipercross air filter install.
I measured both on the same route section in both direction to have a good comparison. There was a significant 8 m/s Southerly wind so there is a noticeable difference between each run so i compared the tailwind and headwind runs on each map. Below are the results.
If I calculate an average, then i get 418 HP and 590 Nm with 15% drivetrain loss.

I managed to put all 4 measures on one graph using Virtual Dyno software.

On last Sunday I had the first trackday of the season (hopefully not the last due to COVID-19 closures). The track was repaved during winter on several sections so it was very dusty and slick on the first few sessions, then it got better. Also traffic was quite significant in this group. Anyway it was a very fun day.

Today I Installed the Turner Motorsport Carbon Fiber Corner Braces to replace the factory plates. They are very solid and look gorgeous.

I think by feeling you wont notice the difference even if its stronger than the factory plates. But looks good indeed!
