Is the stud diameter different in the UK? The spare you listed shows as being 120 and our cars are 112. This is a great idea though and will be picking one up if I find the correct bolt pattern.
Mate you are 100% right. The car is 5x112 and the spare 5x120. What a donkey!

It seems BMW changed their newer models to 5x112 recently and I’ve unwittingly picked up the wrong size spare.

I’ve removed the spare from the car now! Shame as the packaging of the spare is brilliant. I’ll keep my eye out for a 5x112 version.

Morning mate, I haven't taken delivery of the car back so I couldn't tell you!

It will be louder than stock due to the larger piping, it still retains the factory exhuast valve which is a great feature.

I'm hoping to have the car back next week sometime. Bad time of year weather wise in the UK 5C and wet mostly.

That exhaust looks spot on.

Once you get the car back mate, any chance you can upload a sound clip? I am getting tempted to order one. Will have to change out my current DP for a euro one though.

I don't miss English weather that's for sure, drove to work today in 33 degree weather ;)

So recived the car yesterday morning on a miserable & wet December day. Just in time for my track day @ Oulton Park! Nothing like timing eh?

A few pics of the car.

As she got dropped off:

The engine bay with the new additions:

Filling up on 99 RON Vpower before the track day.

Drawing a big crowd, must of spoken to 20 people about the car throughout the day!

The day was extremely wet and didn't really give up raining throughout.

The car felt well balanced especially with the HKS springs and front strut containing the body roll. Stiffness of the ride remained as stock which is a plus as I was worried about makin the car too harsh.

The Pure800 turbo though, wow. This thing spools so fast but the delivery is extremely linear, a different experience to the stock turbo which has a huge torque dump early in the rev range.

I only managed to go full throttle a handful of times on track due to the conditions but the car managed it well. To be honest it could of gone faster but with it being my first time behind the wheel since the stage 3 mods were made, I thought it was best to take it easy given the conditions.

Braking was easily managed despite being on the stock setup, no doubt due to the lower speeds and longer brake areas due to the wet.

I am SO keen to try the car back on track in the dry as the handling was very predictable and has given me confidence when driving it in adverse conditions.

Also the exhaust sounds incredible. Short track video below!

Thanks! I'm hoping so! Yet to meet or even see another A90 owner in the UK. I did have another track day at Oulton Park booked for today but the new Lockdown has put an end to that.

Fingers crossed we can have some normailty back come Summer time and get driving again! I'm hoping to do the NC500 with some friends which will be awesome if we an actually go1
