Thanks Alec, yep I would like to shave the reflectors in time and fill the license plate holes too. Thats gonna be one of the later things, doing the rear trunk/bumper/diffuser first.

yes they are HID projector driving lights inside stock fog housings, the flash lit them up..they aren't on but you can see the projector


Just installed my leather wrapped center console.
It makes the console much more classy looking. Photos to follow after I get the eurotray to sit more flush

If you call vorsteiner directly you can still get the one piece race splitters from them.

If he already has a Vorsteiner CSL Race lip then he should do that.

But my lip is not for the CSL bumper. It won't fit a CSL bumper nor will the VS lip fit factory M3 bumper. So it depends which he has.

Ok, here's my latest. Black leather covered center console (and euro tray). No more sratched up area by the ebrake handle, where the seats touch on the sides either which is a plus.

BMW made some for the INDIVIDUAL program. They are crazy expensive. but you can get an upholstery shop to wrap them for you. I suggest use a file and open some areas like the Hazard switch a little prior to wrapping because with the added material it won't fit right.

5-2

got the Active Autowerke's programing tune, really nice. had the smg shift lights activated too which is a nice visual toy for us manual drivers.

also upgraded my muffler hangers. these are known to break and this one did again so siliconed them completely in to resist breaking. having done
this i notice no new vibration, actually think it's quieted down the rear resonance some.

Here's another of how the rear now looks. I really like the trunk with the diffuser. It's got an aggressive yet still sporty and classy look in my humble opinion. I need to do some minor adjustments to the fitment but came out really good.

..and the CF CSL diffuser again. just a subtle touch of CF for contrast but nothing too over the top. might have to get some new tips as it really wraps around them and hides the tips.

front kidney surrounds bodycolored

..and lastly had the front kidney surrounds painted body color. have this on the 323Ci and always liked it. just a subtle added touch that some don't even notice but it's there.
