stop posting pictures of your awesome car all over here and facebook.
it's making me jealous :P
Quality mate I LOVE this car!
Small side project on my M3. I have VEMS on my car and just bought a super cheap second hand ASUS eee PC to fit in the glove box, then I will use the VEMS to feed a 7" touchscreen double din in the center-console as a wideband monitor, having several tabs awailable with different guages. Radio and heater controls will be in the original location, but the 7" will replace the onboard computer and storage compartment in front of the gearshift.
Basic one will be the AFR/Lambda/boost along with various temps EGT/Water/Oil and also oil pressure and water pressure.
Then also tabs with ignition advance, knock, tps, speed, backpressure and basically everything available. Separate tab for warmup, Track driving and so on.
I will use the guages in analog form, just showing the actual numbers (as big a font as possible) and not use the "dials" layout.
This will also enable for some quick adjustments and datalogging straight to the SD port of the laptop.
Test.. (need to get used to the size of this, maybe get a touchscreen pen"
Federal Semislicks are on. There is a bit of rubbing in the rear with the 255/35-18 on the 8.5" wheel since I am currently using a 20mm spacer. Once removed it will be fine. Clerance on the front is great, and to me this actually looks like the perfect size (245/35-18 on 8.5" wide with 5mm spacers), they are however a bit wider than the Toyo T1R 245/35's.
Only downside is that the weather turned a bit cold so I have not been able to try them, only a short drive but initial feeling is good, they are pretty safe in cold/wet condition compared to the CUP and R888, which probably means that they lack the warm track grip of the other two.
