Absolutely stunning looking. I saw this car at bimmerfest and I remember it too! Now the only thing is your rear is a lot more aggressive than the front. gotta change that up.

Thanks Doug. These came with a retrofitted 12 pin wire harness, but when I hooked them up, they didn't work. So when I have time, I am going to try to use my oem harness and figure out all the wiring to get the features back.

Thank you. Yeah, I have been throwing around 2 ideas. I really like the mtech, so I was thinking maybe a hamann lip would add an agressive touch. I also have a CSL V1 front bumper sitting in my garage that needs to go to paint.... Not sure I want to go that route though.....

Chad,
Just a head-up. I originally did the retrofit for the 12 pins harness like your mirrors and I found out that I lose the memory and reverse tilt down features. Hagus mirrors only come in 6 pins harness. So I decided to retrofit the OEM motors but when you installed them, the control on the motors will move in opposite direction meaning will you move the glass down, it is actually going up and vice versa, same as the up and down functions. To correct this, I ended up making a custom mounting plate and remount the motors to the mirror housing so they will move in the same direction as the control knob. What started out as a simple mod and it ended up a pita project.

But it was so awesome there and it was nice to meet you Ken and your friends skylar and ..matt?

Thanks for the info Doug.... I remember hearing about them tilting in the wrong direction with a direct connect. I think MachRc was telling me that.
Good lookin' out!

The banmobile has come quite a way.
The plate is by far the best mod.

Thanks. People seem to either love them or hate them.

and the cheapest and quickest by far to install. I was thinking about changing it since my registration is due, but I guess I will keep it for a bit longer.

Would you be able to go in more detail about that M3 rear and quad tip setup?

I keep telling myself it will be too much work...but I keep changing my mind!

Edit: Nvm, I see you got the exhaust setup from Daron. Would love to know more about the M3 rear though.

Me and another fanatic did a collaboration on the DIY thread. He took all the pics and we put it together. Unfortunately the pics aren't uploading right. Let me get in touch with him and see if he can rehost the pics.

Atleast you can do some reading.....
