    Greetings from Germany

    Hi, I'm Patrick and since a bit over a year now, I have a black '13 ST and damn... I love that car.
    I've been reading in this forum for quite a while now, getting some info on mods and other technical stuff.
    Things I've done so far:
    - DP with sports cat
    - 3" bastuck exhaust
    - 25mm H&R lowering springs
    - FSwerks lower front traction bar
    - Mountune short shifter
    - K&N 57i kit
    - SS tuning gear lever
    - Motec MCR2 Ultralight wheels (40 mm offset), 8x18 with Nitto NT555G2
    - Maxton Design front splitter
    - 3D printed Throttle pedal spacer
    - 15 mm H&R Wheel spacers (On Snowflakes in winter only)

    There's a lot of interesting stuff to find here in this forum, even if not everything can be applied here in Europe (The laws over here are a huge pita). But maybe I can find some other great mods which don't get me into too much trouble.Name:  felgen.jpg

    I already know about Ray
    Will probably order an FMIC from him next month. I'm still torn about a Mishimoto FMIC, which I could get my hands on for approx. 213$ (190 €) but this one would be illegal and stay illegal unless I butter in another 1500 quid to have it registered via TÜV single-acceptance §21 STzVo...
    Living in Germany kinda sucks when you're a piston head.

    Dang yeah that does suck. I knew it was intense here but wow... basically if I see a heavily modified car here the people are loaded$$$ ? lol I don't know if shifter stuff would need TUV but the solid cable links were a pretty good easy modification.

    Either that or they don't give a flying .. about the cops here and they also don't care about their insurance being invalidated.
    But not every mod has to be done with §21. Only if there is no documentation for it available and extensive testing needs to be done.

    Solid cable links? What are those and what do they do?

    so the cable linkage that connects to the shift arm and the shift (don't know what its called) lol but its 2 pieces that make shifting super precise and I think it feels great. google solid cable bushings. amazon and ebay have them for a good price.

    Ah okay. That makes sense. Maybe I'll look into it someday too. But first... I need to source an US-front grill ( CM5Z-8200-BA), shaved or not. Then comes the FMIC and a Cobb AP v3 after that.

    I see you've got headlight stripes. I'm planning on getting a similar set made in carbon for my TS ST. Are you going to get any racing stripes as well?
