Cool Navin! It's nice to finally see the outcome, I was excited to see it since we talked via email before Bimmerfest... The only thing I would suggest are some new shoes ..err wheels!

It's finally done. Nice job. I will have to check it out in person when I come up there in November.


BTW, how come the shop did not fill the holes from our old splitters setup? I noticed the hole plug is still there.

Drop that front down Navin. Looks like reverse rake, it will do wonders for the look.

Good job.

Thanks again, Alan! Loving the new CF CSL bootlid and very happy with the fitment and the weave direction(////) to match my other CF stuff.

Thanks Dan! For now I'm happy with my DPE wheels. I thought about color matching the wheel lips to Atlantis Blue but thought that might be too much and definitely would make it tough for me to resell the wheels later on. I do have a wheel sponsorship now with BBS so I may go the BBS route next year... we'll see.

You're right... I completely forgot about the bumper plugs. That'll give me something to do next year if I have them address this then, lol.

Yeah Doug, feel free to visit me and check it out anytime.

Good job.
Thanks Shane! Yeah, my coilover height is still raised up (winter mode). I only put on my summer wheels (DPE) right before Bimmerfest and plan on going back to my winter wheels (OZ) in a few weeks so I didn't have my mechanic lower the car only to raise it up again so soon and have to pay him both times to do it. But you're right... needs a drop.

My car is officially the "daddy-mobile" so I intentionally keep my baby on board placard on my window at all times... such an amazing privilege to be a father.

Worlds first to me means it came directly from the factory that way and not just a paint job using individual paint. Too much exposed carbon fiber for my taste. Props on the work though. Must look great in person.

Looks awesome! Not many cars can pull off that color, but it looks great on yours with the cf...The black/silver was a little too much contrast for me.
