Funny you mentioned that, I've found exactly the same thing. Stubby (it was more of a semi-stubby) was very good on the E85 but the E89 stubby is not great at all.
My receptions fine, bit I am using a genuine bmw stubby :?

You won't be disappointed. I bought a retrimmed standard wheel for my car a few years ago. The retrimmed standard one still wasn't as thick as my standard sport wheel. Just make sure when they retrim your sport wheel they don't end up making it thinner :thumbsup:

The sport wheel feels so good to touch :driving:

Tartan has arrived so recaros are off to be retrimmed in black leather with tartan inserts . Along with tartan for doorcard inserts . Wheels are to be dropped at the powdercoaters for colour change and diamond cut lip.

Just reinstalled my drivers door kick plate and I'm going to put on my missing M badge on the drivers side wing and bar a full paint correction from my old man, all the cosmetics will be fixed.

Earlier this week, the broken exhaust clamp has been replaced with a sleeve to tied me over until I can get my mate who has his own business making custom exhausts, to do a full stainless system but with a butterfly valve in it, so I can keep it quiet in the mornings at home, but have it in full song when I am out enjoying the B roads.
Sounds like a useful friend. Where is the valve going to redirect to? Post-cat, straight out, or some kind of backbox bypass? Member Fishy Dave had the former (with Bluetooth control) and it sounded brutal!
I would have a backbox pass, so there was at least one set of silencers still in use. I know that when the backbox's are bypassed, you get the most savage over run crackles and sound, but you're not so loud you're going to get pulled over for it.

A red Ferrari is a bit samey-samey :P a red BMW, Let alone an M version, seems quite the rare sight.
