How tough was the install for you?

It looks like they removed the front air skirt stuff that was taken out with the intake that's on the car. Might make it harder to get to everything without that removed.

Handling is pretty good in 330i IMO. Tuned 340i I'm sure is still heaps faster than 330i, hut only past a certain speed. Even a launch on a G20, the grip and delivery is superb, very direct power delivery. Other cars may be pushing more numbers on paper but with all aspects considered like how well the power is being delivered, Stage 2 OTS is more than enough. It's a extraordinary tune.
I understand. It boils down to drive ability and how the car does on the roads here (highway/city with their speed limits and stuff). While all those tuned cars might do insane 100-200 times and push 500+ whp, I don't know how people drive those on the roads here without getting into trouble or without being frustrated.

Also, you said you bought FTP pipes? The same ones as the B46/48 F30? Any reason why you went with FTP? I see VRSF has cheaper ones. I wonder what the difference is other than branding.
Can you post the link for the VRSF chargepipe? I can only find a B58 VRSF charge-pipe. The only chargepipe that I found was this FTP one which I believe g20beam has however there's a cheaper FTP one too which I'm confused about.

Here you go, don't buy off BMS, just buy straight from FTP to avoid any mistakes with your order.
