These guys are amazing at their job, worth checking out a place in Birmingham called Detail Central, very particular about their equipment

Using top quality products

Dried under artificial lighting so they don't miss anything

Blow all the water off the car as minimal contact as they can with the body of the car

Fresh hot water used on every single car, clean sponges, clean buckets so no stones light scratches in the body, excellent job


What's new on the M2, so far not much more, purchased a new race steering wheel, spinning centre caps from BMW, quite tempted with a carbon CS bonnet at the moment and the carbon roof

Did you rotate them at all? I cant imagine the F1 position is very comfortable in the M2.

they didn't need anything at all except to be raised by around 2 inches, they do have adjusters on the seat for the position on it, they do look like the base sinks in but the cushion on it does make a difference in raising it, it does actually feel comfortable the way it is positioned

I'm not hating on the Senna seats but how did you go from "don't like the M2 seats" to "let's get Senna seats!"? It's not the obvious choice that comes to mind when looking at seat options... how did you even source them? Again, not hating, just genuinely curious.. car looks great, BTW!

There are threads in most Bimmerpost Forums asking how to code out the Airbag/Seatbelt issues with racing seats.

If you would detail that process, those that care might be very grateful.
