Not to threadjack your thread - but here is my progress so far:
very nice work.
looks like you and I are at the same stopping point.

i was going to wire everything up for power tomorrow but the forecast calls for freezing rain so i'll be staying inside instead.

i can't wait to get all my stereo components hidden away but that will have to wait quite a few months. i need to sell my current speakers and amps first.

please take many many pics of how you wire everything up for power and air so i can use them for reference (aka make my install much easier...lol)

it's in perfect condition and comes with OEM fog lights and i'll even throw in the brackets.
if you have a plastic welder the broken piece can be easily fixed.
Great thread, just subscribed. Also interested in the M3 bumper, any idea if it will fit a preface lift 325xi?

there's no way to know what car it's supposed to fit. i'd like to know for sure before i sell it but i doubt there's any way to tell without actually test fitting it to a specific car.
but if you're willing to gamble i can give u a price. i just need to take it in to get the shipping fees estimated.

I haven't done mine - on the drivers side there are usually extra "clips" where the fuel lines attach to the body. I am hoping to use them for at least one or two lines (maybe just the electrical) for the ride level sensors

the other option for the front lines (except keep the lines, etc away from the driveshaft and exhaust) is to route them inside (between the body and the heat shield)...the heat shield. This is my plan/hope for the front lines.

For the rear - I am thinking bringing them down to the rear subframe and then routing out with the upper control arm (on the back side and only falling to the bottom of the control arm where it attaches to the bag.

I am very interested in other ideas or plans.
