Post RailKing M2C Build Thread

Hello!

Starting a build thread for my 2020 M2C. Original order was Hockenheim Silver, 6 Speed MT, Executive Package, Blue Stitch, Black 788M. Coming from a 2011 135i, which I still own.

On order:

M Performance Carbon Fiber Diffuser
M Performance Stainless Pedal Kit
M Performance Shift Knob / Parking Break
Akrapovic Titanium Slip-On Exhaust

A couple of photos for now.

Driveway after ceramic coating:


Putting some miles on:

Looks awesome! I literally ordered the exact same spec. My car is currently awaiting carrier assignment, which it's been stuck on for two days. I hope mine gets here around the middle of June.

Nice combo, I have the same car by 19 and I ditched the black 788M's for some black 763M.

The black 763M is such a great wheel on this car and color. Definitely in my plans.

Just got my break-in service done this week. Akra going on tomorrow, along with the Eventuri intake if there's enough time left in the day.

OMG you got the Eventuri intake...so jelly.
LOL, I sooooo want that to match the rest of my carbon fiber bits under the hood (have the engine cover) but don't know if I can justify the cost. Want to get my dashcam and radar/laser system and ppf done.

Got both installed. Note to anyone that has to drive to a lift; the Akra system will fit in the trunk, but unsurprisingly the stock unit will not.

Heading out to the track this weekend, going to see what this thing can do!

Here is the amount of peek the tips have when combined with the MPerformance diffuser.


No more sag.


A lot of nice details that will never been seen.

Here's the Eventuri system installed.



Left side.


Right side.


Now that I see it, I almost prefer that each part has a different weave as they run right next to each other and it visually separates them.

I agree, variation on a theme looks great.

Switched to matte black 763M. Much more aggressive, lighter, and shows off the big brakes.

Got a few interior parts installed; CF trim on steering wheel, CF emergency brake, and LCI shift knob.

I've fallen behind a bit, made quite a few updates.

Added:
- MPerformance rear spoiler
- MPerformance front lip spoiler
- RKP carbon fiber side skirts
- Active Autowerke Midpipe
- Macht Schnell wheel spacers 10mm

I don't know if anyone has done this combo yet, so here is a soundclip. I had to have the midpipe couplers modified to properly route to the Akrapovic catback. Active Autowerke installation calls for a different cut point, so they won't join without some customization.

Looks and sound great! Did you disable/bypass the ASD? If not, have you noticed anything yet?

Thanks, I coded out ASD pretty much right away when I got the car, I'm not even sure I could describe it as it was only on for a few drives.

Dropped in a painted engine cover today. Base in Hockenheim, accents in gloss black. Unwrapping the IND packaging was the most time consuming part of the install.

No changes, just enjoying the car.
