How was it getting the M3 bumper to fit? Did you glue the rebar to the new bumper or use some other method?

i just got some stock bumper carrier pins transferred my carrier over. i also ordered the M3 rubber gasket to fill up any gap. my bumper had some sag in it and the body shop that painted it did some shims and braces to it to fix that.

also had to modify this one plastic shroud too that goes over the AC condenser. you could also just remove it.

I need to hurry up and get all the maintenance caught up so I can move on to mods for my touring. Does clear lights and angel eyes count?

I ordered both the OEM clear taillights and third brake light from my local dealer. Pretty expensive for what you get. I wish there was a complete LED taillight for the touring.

I have a noob question. Will 17x8.5 fit in the rear or all 4 corners? I'm considering picking two sets of style 68s.

I run 18x8.5 on all 4 corners with 235/40/18 tires. No rubbing issues whatsoever.

I want to know if the 8.5s will fit on a XI.

Looking hot as usual. You have me thinking about M-tech 1 since I've seen pics of your touring. I do not think that I've posted pics of my touring in this thread.

I'm right there with ya....my ambers make me flinch when I see 'em, but clears are outrageously expensive. I'm thinking I'm just going to tint/smoke my tails.

Hey,

I didn't sell my LEDs tails yet, I forgot already about them...
They are brand new if you want I can sell those for you.
I posted pictures in this thread about two months ago or so.
My price is $300

Regards,
mark

i guess it is the thickness of the tailpipe walls that make it look so much bigger than the Supersprint oval tips on my sedan:
