I actually drove mine! Arrived in Germany yesterday and today I got to drive it, and installed my little one's Recaro 'race' seat. My previous car had Recaros so it was cool to have a matching set. Now next order of business: winter tires. Apparently it's illegal here to drive on summer tires "during winter conditions" so they are required. Near Stuttgart this means near or slightly below freezing temps and a few snowflakes in the air but little or no accumulations.

I'm from Detroit, and by my standards this place doesn't really get winters. But whatever, when in Rome...

When it gets warmer the next order of business will be track pads and trying to install these

Upgraded from ID4 to ID6 on my 2016 Pre-LCI last night!

BIG thanks to steve@codemybimmer for a truly plug & play experience. Customer support was also outstanding. Email responses were prompt despite being way out of normal working hours.

Now I just need to find an iphone to test wireless carplay...

Oh, my apologies, I should have been more specific. The Recaro seats were a factory option on my 2014 Mustang GT. I was talking about the 4 point harness. I guess I should have posted this picture instead

More on topic however, in terms of what I did with my M2 today, I span the rears on the 4-5 upshift on the Autobahn. I decided to try no-lift upshift (keep right foot on throttle while jabbing the clutch with my left and ripping the next gear). It sounded awesome as the car bounced off the rev limiter and the typical 2s acceleration lag after a "normal" upshift was not there at all. I know it's not easy on the clutch but will be fun to do every now and then. How often do you guys hoon like that with your cars?

Do you have a video of something showing how that coating works?
What's the difference between ceramic and a regular wax?
How much they charged you?

I don't yet. The coating is still too new for me to wash. Their standard prices are on their website but I got in on a group buy over the holidays. PM me for info idk if I'm allowed to post that on the forums.

They have a couple videos that I looked at before I scheduled my appointment:



The main benefit of a ceramic coating is longevity over traditional wax and durability to harsher elements and chemicals. Coatings can last years whereas waxes last months. If you're not someone who likes to DIY often then a coating may be ideal. I fall into this category.

Also the paint correction done before applying the coating really brings out the gloss

Brought it to a cars and coffee they have every month in Jacksonville. It was packed (must have been 500+ cars) and I couldn't find a spot until another guy with a orange BMW offered me his spot as he was hitting the road. A non BMW was right in front of me and he let him go Once I pulled in I realized there were about 9 other BMWs lined up in that row. Cool. One was a LBB Comp, first I'd seen. Plenty of folks liked the car. It was even clean. Hadn't done that show for a while so it was a nice way to start the day.

Washed it. Being MG, just how dirty it was only became apparent once I started...

You had been putting the existing set to good use prior to this though, judging by the state of the rubber...

I let it soak and let the snow melt off of it. The drive home Friday in some actual accumulations was a bit of an adventure

Hopefully the shop which has my snow tires re-opens this Monday!

That's awesome! Where'd you get the seat?
