did a little research and went to a tutorial demo with Adam and the In and Out spray is basically the VRT is an aerosol spray to ease the application process and help get in nooks and crannies in the motor compartment.

so far still holding up from initial application
I'm going to get some ordered today. Thanks for all the info and follow up!

They take on many different shades depending on the light. They are brushed tinted clear but light really changes the optics. Almost look gold or titanium in this one

Haven't seen any Akrapovic systems lately but if you can find one, get it. So light and great quality.

Gixxer definitely had some HP upgrades (intake, dp's, Akra exhaust, pure turbos, tune, I believe coils and plugs). I think Dynamic Auto Tune in Charlotte did most of his dyno work and tuning.

I just have ECU bench flashed and exhaust. Surprisingly biggest feel difference was sprint booster. Gixxer's felt lazy compared to mine until he took my sprint booster and put in his. He definitely had more top end with bigger turbos, pulled longer but initial launch was similar. His had pretty aggressive sound with dp's also.

Wow, would be ecstatic to own any car pictured! I even see your X5M in there, should have moved those M4s over and hard parked!

it is aftermarket. i was going to have to pay $600 difference for OEM according to progressive.

it already had an aftermarket one in it so i'm not paying the difference.


on a side note, the guy cracked the new one now so tomorrow i'm having it done all over again. they ordered another aftermarket one but a brand the guy says he likes a lot better smh

This MOFOS didn't want to pay for it
