You should clarify the clear bra will peel off. Typically they don't.


If the bra will peel off make note of that on BAT. I think most buyers will assume the car is going to need paintwork to remove the graphics.

i don't actually find this car that distastefully done? maybe i'm desensitized by stance kids and veilside and rocket bunny body kits and etc.

i hope the buyer hits the dyno for us. i'd love to see what a metric mechanic 2.5 S14 puts down. why are we not discussing that engine, r3v? i kinda have a boner about it.

you're a solid dude for helping friends like this; good luck with the sale.

There's two m3's with MM s14's on BAT. Who there thought that through.

^^^ This ^^^ you should post that info.
I fully assumed it would require sanding and paintwork.
I think thats critical info in helping the sale.

Sorry, I thought everyone knew about how clear bras work. I've had them on several cars, so I just took it for granted. I took your guys' advice, and put a post in the comment section of the listing. Hopefully that will "clear" it up.

Metric Mechanic claims 255hp in their literature. I have a receipt in Chuck's folders for 3 Dyno pulls. But I don't have the results anywhere. I suspect he has them electronically on his computer somewhere. I just didn't poke around that much in the computer.

Yah I was just looking for photos from a dyno day several years back that an M3 with a MM 2.5 had just been installed. I remember the owner was less than pleased with the results.

If it's the car I'm thinking of, it made 5 more WHP than my tired 300k mile M50 (172 vs 177whp)
