Bought my Mtech 2 Today.

So I bit the bullet today and ordered my Mtech 2 today. Got the parts guy at Peter Pan BMW to get reasonably close to what BMWPARTSSOURCE.com was offering delivered.

I had a hard time deciding replica vs oem, but figured that it was worth the extra $$$. I didn't order the mesh insert today because I saw a product called Racemesh. Something tells me that its Ricey, anybody else have an opinion? Does anybody have pictures of it installed?

racemesh? is that the aluminum stuff? yes, it looks awkward. Did you order foglights and surrounds as well? Guessing that you just bought the front bumper?

Gonna order those tomorrow from BMWPARTSSOURCE.com or Tischer. It didn't make sense to ship the bumper, but the local dealership couldn't get close on the other parts. The only thing that I'm going to pass on are the spiltters for now, but maybe maybe I'll do carbon fibre later. I think they kinda look ricey too.

$415 for the front from local dealership with a little negotiations, with no freight. I was gonna be like $500 if I had to have it shipped from BMWPARTSSOURCE.COM. I'm gonna order the rest of the stuff from online however.
