But damn I love the wheels/tires/center caps/rear/diffuser/and kinda the exhaust.

Chad: have you started hated the lack of good visibility with those mirrors yet? I have the same ones and while I like the look, I HATE the tiny glass, the poor visibility, etc.

Thanks B. Yeah, the m3 rear retro was a b1tch. I still need to adjust it some but won't be able to until I change from a 265 tire to a 255.

I also need to have the exhaust tips shortened a bit.

Yeah, I am still trying to get used to it. It has been a couple weeks and I don't know what to do. It is just really weird. I keep adjusting them to try to get the best visibility, but

I do catch myself looking over my shoulder further back than I normally would before making a lane change.

You'll never get them adjusted right, because there is no right with those mirrors. I've tried for MONTHS. I didn't realize how spoiled I was with M5 replica mirrors. I had those set up with ZERO blind spots. The Hagus ones, I just can't get em set up right, especially the passenger side. I think the glass is just too small. They look nice though, so I guess it's true: pimpin' ain't easy.

even with the elephant ears, I had them set properly with no blind spots...

Yeah, the split glass is weird and I think it throws off the depth perception. Like sometimes I catch a car in the split and realize it is right beside me... Oh well, I love them and will keep them until I get my hands on something else. Guess it is the sacrifice you make right

It's nothing special under there, wouldn't want you to get dirty . I actually will probably end up redoing. Right now it is the resonator to two straight pipes, muffler deleted. I might ditch the resonator, put two single mufflers with straight pipes.....

Look good Chad. I have the same mirrors on my vert and it's definitely takes some time to get used to them. Mine have OEM motors that I retrofit to retain all oem functions.
