In would have probably kept the mirror caps black, but besides that tiny personal preference, it is a jem! Love the Cerekoted exhaust.

I didn't get any pics of the exhaust system on a lift yet; I'll inquire with the shop tomorrow. Here's the cerakoted muffler from the back side:

Flex sensor and upgraded Stainless Braided PTFE fuel line installed along with Zeitronix ECA2 Can Bus device which taps into the BMW CAN to send the flex content to the DME for on the fly calculations which is only possible through ECUTEK RaceRom software.

Little update; I must be one of the first to fully integrate the flex sensor into the car as the original patch from Ecutek had the ethanol content reading about half the actual E% value. Needless to say I noticed this right away and contacted my tuner. My tuner then received a new updated patch from Ecutek within a day. I will say I'm very impressed with Ecutek's quick response and resolution. My ethanol sensor is now reading perfect around 37% at the moment.

I also have some new plugs on order and hopefully will be here soon: NGK SILZKBR8F8S (BMW PN#12120042724 - N20 Flex Fuel Spark Plug) I plan to gap them around .020. If anyone needs these plugs hit up Brian Keller at Sun Motor Cars for the best price - bkeller@sunmotorcars.com

Quick update; did some datalogging and then Bend Calibration sent over some fresh calibrations. Currently running strong on 50% ethanol. Car is a little beast and I'm pretty happy. I gapped my OE plugs at .020 and have my extra set of plugs ready to drop in whenever. I will be looking to increase ethanol content shortly.

Couple things new...Ethanol blend is up to 70% now.

Also got fullscreen carplay from forum member kubax86. Sent me a download link with instructions and took about 10min total. Easy

Few things new...continued development with Ecutek and currently have all areas of the flex mapping optimized. Currently at 81% ethanol and everything is feeling awesome. I have three out of the four on the fly maps setup...One for full torque, one for flat torque and the other for road course.

Otherwise I made a huge improvement to the exhaust yesterday...added a couple Aero Turbine resonators! Videos don't really do it any justice but it's removed the last bit of rasp that was present and replaced it with a nice snarl and smoother tone.

With more miles, the resonators have started breaking in and continue to make it sound better...I might be biased but this is definitely the best S55 exhaust note I've ever heard...no more weedwacker rasp.

Full setup: VRSF Downpipes, Active Autowerke Midpipe, AeroTurbine TR252 Resonators with OE rear muffler.

I have too many gray colored cars! My wife thinks I have boring tastes! I need help!
Autoflex it!

Best option. Peelable paint, sprayed on. Less expensive than a wrap, but looks just like paint. Wash it, wax it, coat it. Anazing.

Look up AutoFlex Coatings to find a dealer, and see my post on the Photos page to see what it's like.

Took some iPhone driveby videos to try and capture the sound of the exhaust with the resonators:

Sounds great, like you got rid of 90% of the rasp, loud but not ear shattering. How civilized is it in eco with the valves closed?
