Yes, they did the M3 Bumper, M3 mirrors, hood, Rear Bumper, roof, Hatch back and both driver side doors. I'd had partial paint done because the previous owner was carrying surf board's around on her roof without a rack! It dented the roof a bit. Also the 1st week I bought my car an old Lady rammed a shopping cart into the driver side doors as well. So I decided to just repaint and fix minor dents and rock chips on most of the car.

In real life I really cant tell the difference but I seems the rear driver side door stands out when I increase the Contrast on photoshop

Dont have to say sorry mate, it's good pointing theses things out, I like

Thanks
Jack

Lolz, you guys are brutal! Ahhh it sucks to have so many pointing out your "flaws." Seriously, your car rocks!

BTW, did you buy blackout trim or do the tape method for the window trim?

I did the DIY Shadowline vinyl (matte) blackout method. It takes 2 rolls for tourings but I suggest 3 incase for emergencies (I F****'d up half a roll)

But I just bought the matte black front grill.

It takes alot of patients, but I do recommend removing the entire trim to do this because part of the chrome touring trim gets covered by the rubber trim on the rear windows.

Stuart - taught me how to remove the entire trim, it's really easy.

You can buy the stuff from http://www.bmwshadowline.com/

notes: 1. do it with a friend (need extra hands) 2. a blow dryer is helpful

Thanks
Jack

Nice! Close up's of the rear "wing"?

Side skirts are to be modded too?




In general: why is it that "everyone" is altering rear- and frontbumpers but allways forgets the sideskirts......

the tails are ok but not as good as original, you dont really notice it after a while, i may do the side skirts next time i get paint work done, not sure, i would rather spend the money on others things for the car tbh, heres a closer pic of rear roof spoiler, its a hamann rep

coilovers next, its never quite sat right on the eibachs and projector headlights to freshen the front up a bit, also thinking the wheels might look nice in a graphite colour.

yea, got the wagon to start today with the new dme...had to use a remote start (ignition is not sending 12v to starter at key position three....likely the clutch nuetral switch or the EWS - even though the EWS aligned with the new DME perfectly)

new clutch, flywheel and stainless clutch line installed last wknd

coil-overs were installed a few weeks ago

i think the m3 bumper may be growing on me for the wagon - just something to make the two cars slightly different - other than wheels
