This! But yes, expensive just for a lip and small bumper change lol.
Yea very true .

With the white with black accessories on your car, I think personally that less is more. Front lip would spoil it.

Flat shifting (power shifting) tune for manual Jimmy, may be of interest? Found it while searching for some stuff for myself, I sent a link to another member also, thought it may interest you, not something I have seen much of. Same mob do launch control for manual e46 m3.

Yeah Eric , it's from CA, I don't know if the US mobs offer it or not, not something I have researched. No grease required on this one, shifts are smooth enough without!

If I go manual in the future, would be something I would personally consider with a bit of research. May be good for Jimmy if he is on the drag strip/ track, then again it might not be?

I probably wouldn't bother. Looks like something that could be useful if you had a dedicated track car. Thanks anyway Dave

You should try pulling your calipers off and cleaning/painting. Also, Try wire brushing your disks and hubs back to bare metal and spray with high temp clear. Looks really good and you'll never get rusty cross drilled holes
