Easy technology upgrade - P3 gauges install DIY

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week, and what a perfect time of the year to get some car projects done!

Recently I got a chance to install the awesome P3 Gauges from Kies Motorsports into my BMW M2 Competition, and really love the upgrade!
The install is simple (even more so if you order WITH vents) and brings vital information at a glance while driving. Even every day driving can be improved with more data, let alone if you get a track weekend or more in as well.

I highly recommend this easy install if you are looking to upgrade your driving data, plus yeah, they look cool too!

So, as an Influencer, do you get paid for these or do you just get free stuff?

Actually none of the above: I am not an 'influencer' and actually loathe that term in general. To me, that means someone saying exactly that 'give me free stuff cuz I am cool/cute/20yo girl with skin showing'. Not me by every definition of the word.

I actually started in my E46 when I needed a repair that no one could do and was desperate for help. The forums and some self taught experts shared what they knew and I fixed a $4k problem for literally $6 total.

Nothing I do is free, and my goal is to share back to the enthusiast community. I started doing PDF guides and was encouraged to start a YT channel, so I did. While YT makes some money now, its pennies on the dollar for what I spend in upgrades.

Did you compare the P3 to the AK Motion Display?

I went with the AK Motion for a few reasons.

1) Larger screen
2) Center vent location

Both are great with what they provide...

In some ways similar, but I also had a central display in the vents in my E46 M3 for awhile. I actually like this left vent for less intrusive by comparison to what I had in my E46. Both were very good though for sure.
