Just hit 400 miles on my car and experienced the rock stuck between rim and brake issue. Luckily I noticed the noise before I got on the freeway. Pulled into a parking lot and reversed until the rock dislodged itself. I've now got a nice groove on the inside of one of my rims. What an unfortunate design issue with our cars 🙂

Also noticed a screw in my tire. Luckily, it was a short screw and my tires are new enough so there is enough tread to prevent a full puncture. New car "luck".

Other than that, enjoyed a nice drive in the mountains.

Take care, all. Have a great Veterans Day.


Edit: posting this to the m2c thread 🙂

My apartment maintenance man blew a thick coating of dust onto my car. I was upset since I've had the car for only 2 days. Decided to wash it down with just water and blow dry it. Looks good as new!

I also used BM3 to get rid of gts start up road and disabled all burbles. Both of those features had me slightly embarrassed when starting /driving around. Car sounds soooo better in my opinion.

Took off those unsightly warning stickers.
Used 91% ipa, finger nails, and a bunch of elbow grease!

Got an iPhone mini so my phone actually fits in the wireless charger now. It doesn't seem to get hot either.

Also installed the lci taillights, blacked out kidney grills and did the center speaker delete!

Nice shots and perspective closeup.

Visual Echo's work is just that, his photos send back a "visual echo",,,like a sound echo but now with the total surroundings somewhat dominating, but calling eye attention to the M2. Thus...a "VISUAL echo. Clever.

Oh shoot I didn't even think about all that!! He really does have some awesome shots. I really appreciate his ability to capture LBB.

Washed car and peeled off the blue blue red M stickers I had on the grill. Now that they're off I think I like it better with the stickers. Also it rained one day later of course, but that was a good time to install new windshield wipers.

Also installed apple CarPlay + fullscreen.

That would look a lot cleaner than the stickers! I could give it a good home!

The winter setup (641M) I recently bought has some rash so I figured it was a good time to change em to black. Would look much better on my HS M2C. Went the DIY route and got some DipYourCar's Hyperdip in shadow black. 4 cans of dip and 1 of cleaner ran me about $60.

The product I must say is much much better than traditional dip. Significantly smoother spray (goes on like spraypaint), satin finish and feels much less rubbery/grippy. It is very thin so it can drip if you spray it on heavy. I had to be very careful and still got 2 drips in total. They're barely noticeable since they were probably on the 4th-5th coat. Did about 11 coats in total so it should hold up great.
Overall very happy with the results.






1st light coat (50%)


2nd light coat (50%)


3rd normal coat



Lost count of coats, used 1 can per wheel was probably about 10-12 all in all.
Finished product





Will probably put them on the car sometime next week, excited to see how it looks
