i had a tracker on my last m3 but tbh im in too minds about getting another as im not sure if id want the car back after it had been stolen and abused, tough decision, also the way mine was fitted to the m3 i would of been better fitting it myself and just having them sign it off.

I've got a tracker fitted to mine, it's the Tracker Horizon by the RAC. This unit uses both real time GPS and UVHF. So even if its put in a shipping container they still have its position when the gps cuts out with the uvhf. The best bit is that if you move the car when its not meant to be moved they will call you immediately. As soon as it moves you get a call saying, are you in your vehicle? I’ve taken the handbrake off before and rolled it forwards to wash and got a call, lol. I know what your saying about not wanting it back because that’s like somebody cheating with ya missus..........I had the van and car done at the same time, £320 each. Money well spent i think.

Hi mate, could'nt help noticing yours had a short shifter mod - I'm thinking of making that my next mod and any feedback would be welcome. I know there are a few on the the market now...does yours have shortened forward and sideways(through neutral) shift. Are you really happy with it? Cheers.

i had a neuspeed front to back and side to side fitted in my V5 and tbh reverse was a nightmare to get into... so on my R i fitted a front to back HPA on the 35/40% reduction setting and i fecking love it, bit notchy but well short (can burn thru the gears), and feels normal to me now :cool:
