I really want to do this as well. Seems like a no brainer.

The part that is making me do it is the fact that the mechanical fan will dent and chip your hood. I cannot afford to have a hood repaired and painted just because some $20 blades decided to blow apart at 4k+ RPM.

Gave it a wash, compounded it, polished it. Too much pollen by my job so it was all green before.
Also, polished the wheels, touched up a few parts of the bumper.

Congrats!

I planned to meet up with a guy to buy m3 hood shock for my CF hood, but instead I just got rid of hood shocks.

On other hand, free hood shocks off 2002 325i. You pay shipping.

Ordered EE smoked LED tails, smoked side markers, and a z4 3.0 shift lever with a 5 speed zhp knob, the shifter bushing and clip. Can't wait for them to come in!
