That is interesting...how/why would someone say they bought a bottom mount manifold from JP but "I have never purchased anything from shuad or whatever you call it"?
This thread is certainly interesting and brings up some good questions but yeah it does seem like a witch hunt at the moment.
But who knows...maybe he is waiting to build some confidence in the new...

It's a shame. I would love a lotus.
The prices are pretty crazy and I am scared of the fact that people have totalled their cars in minor incidents because that front clamshell is $$$$$$
That's a bummer. Is it because BMW's are really expensive over there not many people drive them?
If I was you and had easy access to older GTR's and all the good JDM stuff we didn't get over here...
If you really want it in Australia you should try contacting one of the local companies who make the subaru or honda block inserts. I don't know of the BMW market there so maybe they won't be...
"upgrade" really depends completely on what your goals are because passive suspension is always a tradeoff. Sporty street use? Autox? road course? drag? They all have different suspension control...
I agree with your first point that stroking the engine will be harder to rev but is the second point really that straightforward? It at least needs some discussion.
I know the benefits of both...

Thanks for the update! In for results.
Holy $#@! that is the best video I have ever seen. The "turbo" he put in the intake is hilarious.
The best part is the "NO WAY" at the end lol...not sure what they expected to happen.
You didn't try hard enough!!!
You should have done like these geniuses... (skip to 43s)
Ahh I see, that makes sense. I forgot about the whole M3 rear conversion so you need to buy something for the rear regardless. I would for sure just buy the set of stock struts then.
Are your stock struts blown? What do you want to do with the BC coils?
They are OK and if brand new will at least have a 1 year warranty but generally BC's are oversprung and underdamped and need...

I see that it says it has an N55 block and S55 internals (meaning crank, rods, pistons, etc) but I don't see...

I just searched. Link?
I think if you were able to sell a kit with the setup you described for the same ballpark price as a Fuelit! stage 3 kit (i.e. not double the price) I bet there would be a market for it.

Yeah nothing against JP but it is a new kit and I haven't seen any reviews of how easy it is to install or anything yet.
VM has years of glowing reviews and the durability of the manifold has...

where did you read that? last I heard it was just the same open deck N55 from the M235i
Right. But what V8Bait said is right, the DP fix doesn't work 100% of the time for everyone.
In my area its just easier to pay off the emissions attendant haha.

Yep, just like the 1M was. The M2 gets the same engine as the M235i so that should mean a forged crank at least.

A little bit cheaper. I would probably go for the VM kit tho personally.
I hear Payam's sister is hot too! So its a win-win ;)
