Wish I had longer to chat with them but did not want to bore the wife to tears. I will make a thread of the travels but here are the pics I got of the real CSL’s. I have a little tweaking to mine to match it up better to the real ones.

    NOTE: These CSL did have AC and Radios. Seems most have creature comforts and only a few were the “hardcore ones”

    You need the Evolve Super Charger for your M3. Their workmanship on the airbox is impressive.

    I had two more items from my UK trip that I thought I would share with everyone. First is a few pics of some rare cars and the second is of the Evolve guys. I know most of you want me to post the Evolve visit first but you have to wait LOL.

    Ok here are some images from London. Dealers there had a BMW M3 GTS, Art Mini, BMW I 8, BMW I 3 frame, and Aston Martin Zagato.

    When the wife and I were on honeymoon in the UK we took a day a went up to visit the guys at Evolve. We took the train up from London and meet Imran at the train station. We got a ride to the shop in his crazy E39 M5. The car sounded amazing and what little he stepped on the gas it pulled like a freight train. Would have loved to see what it would do unleashed.

    We spent the morning at Evolve talking to Imran, Sal and Riz about cars, the M3, 1M, and how they test cars yada yada. We also talked to them about how they got into cars, their family, and how they started evolve. It was very interesting to hear about their path to get evolve where it is today and their backgrounds. If you ever get over to the UK, it is worth the trip to see the shop (not overly exciting as I excepted) and talk to the guys.

    While we were there they had several customer cars there in for software tuning. One was an E46 M3 that had a aftermarket CSL airbox installed. This airbox was one of the 4 companies that make a replica box (can’t remember which one sorry). Riz and Sal spent the morning working on the E46 to resolve a install issue and load a evolve power tune. The box looked descent but the air temp sensor was in a spot that gets heat soaked so when they dynode the car it was lower on power than a real or quality replica. Sal showed me and the customer the data maps and how he changes the files. The software is pretty cool as it displays data in a 3d model.

    Here is the old shop. They just purchased the new shop which is in the same complex but is on the other side of the cul de sac and three times as large.

    Some customers cars. The M3 is a individual color car. Not sure which but the interior was white leather and walnut wood grain. No thanks

    Click here to enlarge

    The customer lounge and the door to the heart of the beast. The red M5 there is in for more power as the customer if I remember correctly blew a gasket. They are going to do some head work to make it a monster car.

    Building complex and their project E46 M3 and their super charged E92 M3.

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    E92 with their super charge kit. The manifold is a far superior design to the ESS one as well as the full setup is super clean. The car can make crazy power as the design puts a lot more out than advertised. They actually have to tone it down as gets to crazy on the road.

    The dyno area for testing and all that other fun stuff they do. Also Riz dynoing the customer’s car with the CSL airbox replica.

    Evolv’s project E46 M3 with carbon fiber fenders, hood and gutted interior. They are going back to a OE hood Imran said as the fit-mit of the Carbon fiber is not stellar. Note these are not Evolves parts.

    Riz and Sal trying to figure out the replica airbox power issue. The gentleman and I are watching them tossing some ideas out. The gentleman in the plad shirt (forgot his name DOH) was there in his E92 M3 to have it dyno tuned as he just got exhaust installed.

    Click here to enlarge

    It was a fun visit up there and I got to know more about the guys and the shop that programs my car. Sal is definitely a hoot to talk to about his philosophy on cars. Imran is definitely the grounded one and Riz is the sarcastic tech. The combo works as evident in their products and I hope they continue to support the enthusiast’s community.

    With the new season of Top Gear on now, I can share my images from my visit there. While on honeymoon, we stopped by to see the airfield as well as the studios. We initially were told no but when the guard found out we were on honeymoon he gave us a tour.

    We got to see the new reasonably priced cars, the trailers that were really the Top Gear production offices and inside at the studio. The studio was not setup yet as they just finishing filming a movie there. It is worth to note that production offices are really the production offices, even though they made jokes about it. One last interesting thing is the stars that come on the show enter through a storage closet LOL. All the budget for the show is for the cars and trips is for sure.

    I could not post it until now as we were there before the show aired and did not want to get anyone in trouble.

    While there we also saw the new McLaren Mp12-4C GT being tested. We could not take pictures of it of course but saw it flying down the runway. It was flat black and fly’s like a bat out of hell.

    I also got a souvenir that I can’t post what it is but if you ever are coming to an event, remind me to bring the official paper work I have of TG =). It was a great time there and the guard was a amazing wealth of knowledge and hoot to talk to.

    All the images I was allowed to take.

    That's awesome!

    Not sure if you guys have seen it yet, but the episode last night was awesome... I have never heard of this car - but when I saw this thing, I knew it was going to be special. While watching the powerlap, I was nearly certain it was going to dethrone everything they have ever tested. What an amazing car - and imo, beautiful:

    Quality sucks - but you get the point... Wow.

    Sorry for the lack of updates.

    I will have some images of the new toys that just came in but in the mean time I wanted to give some feedback on the current setup.

    On 9/14 completed a 255 mile drive around Lake Tahoe with a crest of about 8900 feet. The car was running great but I think I need to tune the car better as it felt down on power more than I was expecting. Also the clutch seems to slip a little when running AC so not sure if I finally wore out my clutch or if it is a tune issue as well.

    I am still trying to figure out a rear 02 issue and get the airbag sensors figure out.

    Here are some of the images from the Lake Tahoe Drive. This is for those out there who think this is a garage queen, I think NOT. 255 miles and some serious bug death.

    Recent updates in the world of car modding.

    Purchased a new DME so I now run the MSS54HP module vs the none HP module. This was done so I could have an H-bridge installed in an effort to have the flap work. Having the flap working is more of a novlty and once working I will RE-disable it LOL.

    Below are image of the new CSL Map rail and map sensor. These were installed to have the car use the map sensor for low RPM reading and AlphaN for high band.

    Door panels arrived today. They are a little rough but they are fixable thankfully. Seller did a great job packaging them and was honest about their condition. Next step is to have the scratches buffed out and place in my door frames which are in better shape.

    OK Fern, now you can’t say I am posing now with the door panels ;-P
