It's also on a sticker on the drivers side door jam.

Don't know about launch control.

Got myself a M Performance exhaust as one came up for sale in excellent condition.....

This will be coupled with a scorpion decat and possibly scorpion midpipe if it's still lacking noise Image

Can't wait to get this installed on the weekend maybe.

Ordered myself a rear carbon spoiler which was highly recommended by another member on here....

Just had confirmation that it's now in Newport and will be delivered first thing tomorrow!

Note: I did have to pay customs charges though! (£24.50)

So today my Scorpion decat and midpipes arrived to be coupled with my BMW performance backbox. Unfortunately these did not go well today and will NOT fit as you can see from the photos below:

Image
The offset is the position as it would be on the car it's about 25cm off which is unfortunate. I did however still install the decat and kept the original mid pipe and backbox. Result? Pops and bangs lol does sound good but still quiet when under load. Stationary it sounds awesome though!

I had decided to sell my BMW performance exhaust and get a scorpion back box to get a full system now.

Looking good, got any side/rear profile shots so can see the spoiler better?
