Any body have any thoughts on the new valvetronic exhaust system ? They sound really good no rasp, anyone knows of anyone who has or get someone's opinion on it.

What an odd and frankly terrible name choice for a company. Almost every modern sports car features a valvetronic exhaust.

This is like if I started a new car make and named my company "Vehicle"

Coming soon in 2021: the new Vehicle car. The best car to have ever vehicled. Made with pride by Vehicle™️

Not worried the amp might overheat with the tape blocking airflow? I assume that's why the vent is there in the first place. I would remove it or at least poke some small holes in the tape.

Got a shop to install a new clutch slave cylinder (from e9x platform) that does NOT have the blasted CDV. WHAT AN IMPROVEMENT. I was on the fence about doing this before, since I was slightly concerned that I'd be trading drive train longevity for better clutch feel, but after hearing andrewc89 review. I decided to go for it and I'm very glad I did.

Clutch is now very precise and consistent! Like others have said, you notice it most from a standstill. The CDV removal + BMS clutch stop (with one shim) + MPerf shift knob = sublime 6MT feel.

Not worried at all, because that vent is there (just like at the right side) to release air pressure in the car when you close the doors. And i didn't taped all of it, i left out the top part just it couldn't be seen on my photo.
It's been there on every car for decades, but not every manufacturer put an electric device under it...

Been stocking up over the winter!

Was gunna do it all myself, but I don't have a lift and would have needed to rent a bay at my local diy garage. Probably would haven't taken all day. Got a good deal from a local reputable performance shop. Figured what the hell.

Should have my car back Thursday when it's getting a stage 2 tune (BM3) and all the other bits installed.

Ready for track season!

Same, got tired of staring at it sitting in the garage. Played around with the MDM settings (Thor flasher) and went on a little power sliding adventure

Went the whole nine, got LED reverse bulbs and also blacked out rear reflector with a set of blackline tinted overlays, courtesy of R0ME0.

The install was quite smooth, one of the easiest mods I've done, thanks to the people in this DIY thread:

Also went with LCI tails(U.S) and man do they look much better especially with black line tint strips.
