Drove my LBB in sport plus for the fist time today. Can't wait until fist service is completed. This car blows away all my previous cars from a drivers perspective. WOW

I drove my M2 to day to the DMV to get plates until my custom plates were to come in.

I also was examining how much gas was being used in Sport+ vs Custom. I'm only getting 15 MPG

1. No. Although at least 3 people all on separate occasions who were car gawking stopped to take a picture.

2. Yes. Was at a local ChiTown M meet the other day and one person commented on it. I think he was one of the 1M guys.

I tried to touch up my rock chip today. Spent about 4 hours on the smallest Rock chip. I think I'm done. There's a slight bump but whatevers.

I'll call it a battle scar. Chicks dig scars

I have used it, and it works great if you have a "blob" from touch up paint.

Had the front clip XPEL'd (Ultimate at Wheel Dynamics in Natick MA, highly recommended). Also, added painted reflectors and blacked out grill and black chrome gills.

the rain finally stopped so I was able to detail the car....

Mounted my Schroth Quickfit Pro's. For those interested, the E82/E90 version fit perfect. Mounting points and couplings are identical.

First track event with my broken-in M2 is in 2 weeks.

Very cool. Do you have pics how the belts are rigged from the back of the seat?

I didn't realize a difference either, I didn't even do what you did. Was supposed to rev it first to open them or something?

Yes. That's what's been said on the forums. Start the car in sport+, and rev a couple of times to assure that the valve is open...

This is because (I believe), unlike the ///M3/4, we can't physically reach the valve to open it.

Oh well, it's such an easy mod, I'll try again tomorrow. Maybe I'll do it while the car is running

Paint matched reflectors over the weekend. Hit my local C&C again and this car definitely gets a lot of attention.
