Getting some bits wrapped up.





Still don't know if I should do suspension or exhaust next. I am going full cat back so the costs are both going to be around $1k

The color match looks great. What was your process? Also, are the fogs made that way or is it spray/film?

So I just cleaned the OEM bezel and did about 5 thin coats of color waiting about a minute between each coat then about 5 minutes before I did 2 coats of clear. Such a small piece I didn't need to buff. I ordered the fogs that way off of Amazon, they seem to be great quality to be honest and came with bulbs, plug and play.

I wish ECS shipping pricing to Australia weren't astronomical

California has got to be the best place for parts. ECS is out of Ohio but ship from a few states. What kind of shipping fees are you looking at?

$66 shipping for a genuine BMW cabin filter. I know I can get that in Australia, but just used it as an example

I actually sold them pretty quickly man. I've looked on Craigslist recently though and saw two or three sets with good tires. Good deals as well.

And thank you
