Is yours not a Comp Pack?

I thought the Comp Pack had the uprated exhaust?

Mine is CP and don't get me wrong I think the CP Sport Exhaust is a great improvement on the standard car and adds in some nice snap, crackle & pop. The MPE just takes it to another level and deepens the tone which I prefer. There's some good videos on the difference between the three types... e.g.

Comp Pack has a different exhaust but you can get MPE for the normal F80 M3 as well. I have been tempted to go with that OR Akraprovic for mine when budget permits. Leaning more towards MPE as it's manufacturer approved and won't cause issue with manufacturer warranty.

Changing cars is already expensive enough on ancillaries like GAP insurance, etc... changing number plates,... all that stuff all mounts up at the same time - so I've ear-marked any remaining funds towards a front PPF and ceramic coating and that's pretty much it.

Car was arrived at dealer last Fri - 8 Jun - but I was away on a course, so I picked it up yesterday.

When we walked through to the hand-over area it was a real heart stopping moment. Wow. San Marino is just absolutely stunning.


Presently tucked away in the garage, but hoping to get it out today to get some pictures if the weather stays dry, then it's off to get some protection added on Monday...

I have no words for how privileged I feel


Yours Aye

Mine is currently getting PPF and ceramic coatings applied.
Drove it home on Friday. Stuck it in the garage. Drove it to detailer's on Mon morning. Picking it up tomorrow after tracker is fitted.

I really want to drive the thing...

San Marino is stunning, you'll love it in the flesh.

Yours Aye
