Hello Everyone My name is Kyle Andrew I am new to the Site and I just wanted to say Whats up To all my Fellow Bimmer Owners, and had a Couple of questions if Perhaps any Well versed Tunners may know.??????
1.) Can a Tripple Gauge Pod be Placed on the Left Side, is this a Custom Fit,???, I have a 1995 BMW-M3, and I am acustomed to working on JDM-Cars, I have a Custom 1995 Honda/Civic-Ex, and I have a Tripple Gauge Pod to the Left, which is Oil, (Air/Fuel), and Volts, Can the Same be done to my BMW-M3.??????
2.) Can the Lights on in Dash Board be Changed to a Different Color, from that Orange Dash Lights, and Can Gauge Faces be installed, as in the JDM-Market.?????
3.)I have Seen Carbon Fiber Hoods/Trunks, on other BMW's Where can I Purchase These Products. I live in the Southern California area, and I would deeply appreciate it if someone can answer these questions.
1) Please don't. If you insist there are much better gauge kits
2) Why? Orange is the bmw heritage.
3) There are a few that will turn up by search. I think of Vis or others. Probably some in our product review section.
Glad to have another tuner on here, just keep in mind BMW fans are usually conservative but we always mean well. Keep it clean, performance first, and always remember to laugh at yourself. There's such thing as tasteful JDM, I just don't see it often enough.
Mr WALSRU thank you for responding to my questions, I really want to go with the Gauages, as I have mention before I am acustomed to the JDM Market, but I defintely see and hear your Point Performance First. I just purchased some parts from Bavarian Autosport, my Slave Master, and Master Cylinder went out, and I also upgraded from Factory Tuned Ignition Coils, to High Performance Ignition Coils. You mentioned that If I insist on the Gauges there are better Gauges, what would you suggest if you don't mind me asking, I was looking at the Speed Channel last week, and it was a Race that was on and the Camera went inside of one of the BMW's that was racing and this Paticular Car believe it or not was somewhat set up like JDM, Style with the Tripple Gauge Pod, now I don't know if it was the same that I mentioned the Oil, Air/Fuel, and Volts, but this Driver did have a Tripple Gauge Pod for sure, and he also had A Tac sitting on the Dash, to me it looked like it was Defi Gauges Im not sure.
My future Mods to the M3, I already have the Eibach Sway Bars, not Installed yet also the the Engine Strut Bar, and rear, and the Cross Member bar, sitting in my Garage, I am going with a Coil Over System (Eibach), Bavarian Autosport Master Bushing Set Polyurathane, Front Control Arms, Camber Adjustment, and Sway Bar End Links. Thats it for the Suspension. I amvalso changing my under pulley, Clutch and ClutchPlate, Ultra Flywheel, Short Shifter, and Quaife Differential.
Under the Hood, Afe Cold Air Intake and Remus Exaust, I will build it later, cams Headers, Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator, and Bavauto Performance Chip, High Performance Pistons, Cams Etc, Etc,
Big Brake System, Brembo,or Rotora, W/Steel Braided brake Line
and I will Probably throw some HRE 590r's or 890r's 18in with some Pirells or Toyos Proxes X1. Not sure.
Seats/Recaro with 5-Point Harness, Probably Sparco, and Harness Bar.
Somethings We can Custom Make, which I have never seen on any BMW-Site or Store, like Diamond Mesh Racing Floor Mats Custom Fit, and Roll Cages, I am not going that extreme thou.
If you give me an E/Mail Address on you I Could show you my Honda, I have had 2 Major Publications Contact me expressing intrest in a full Feature layout, but its not ready atleast not up to our expectations, but its pretty clean.
GTR???, I have no Idea, my younger brother first started the Account so he could have placed that on there, I will definetely change that.
I agree thats a great Idea, the Information you gave me on that site, was very helpful, and I am going to get the Double and Single Pod. I don't want to go wild, but I donot want to stay Conservative so I am taking your advice on Gauges. Thank you
