Less than 11k miles, no launches and my BFI stage 2 trans mount is failing. The beveled/flush Allen bolt prevents any torque being applied. As a result the bolt comes loose if you flex the mount with your hand. This causes excess wear on the inserts and developed a crack. BFI needs to go back to the flanged bolt design and this issue won't happen.
Wow, that's not good. How did you discover it?

What made you take it out? Did you feel like something was off while driving?

After doing an oil change, I saw my BFI Stage 1 insert was all torn up.

What's you thoughts on it so far?

Honestly I really felt weird walking into a shop, and 30 minutes later walking out after paying and “hoping” it’s legit been done. I have trust issues.

But the shop is reputable…

I probably won’t really be able to notice until after another race event or two. I’m hoping this finishes the car off as far as what I’ve done to it to give me that last little competitive edge.

Got the windows tinted. First time doing this on any car and I'm not sure why I waited so long!

I went with Llumar CTX @ 50% all around. It's subtle but that's exactly what I wanted.

I am considering exactly the same. Have any more photos from different angles?

You should do Air80 on the windshield
