Haha! hmm too be honest i really dont know the difference is guard size. But keep in mind that white M3 has spacers front and back so im sure you can fit them onto your car..just have a look at this (this is the hungarian coupe i was telling you about when you bought the 18s.)

You can fit style 95 fronts fine. It's just the rear that gives trouble. My rear fenders have been flared and I'm running a ton of camber, but the rears are just so damn aggressive.

Hah holy sh1t your car is hot!

I can't believe how good those wheels look on your car. When i see them on a 7 i don't like them - but on your car its a different story! Great stance and nice contrast across all the colours. Love it.

UPDATE
Not much of an update but thought i'd share it anyway!

Decided to spray matte black grills in gloss black. Decided the matte was a little boring and just didnt look right against the metallic paint.

Grills in matte black from E.D:





So first i prepared the grills by giving them a light sand in 120 grit, then another sand in 400 to get it smooth for painting. After sanding them I then used this stuff to wipe them with. I found it in the back of the cupboard, i dont know how old it is, but it definitely worked amazingly to better prep the plastic.





After a couple of hours they were ready to be painted. I used some of this paint which i got from work.





Two coats and 1 hour later. It turned out far better than i expected. Not one flaw in the finish. Very happy!!

















Also while im on the topic of doing sh1t to my car, the black aluminium trim around the windows was looking very dry and had semi-permanent water marks that wouldnt rub off with a cloth.... SO, for some reason i used WD-40 to wipe whole thing down. It worked 100% and really brought the black shine out... i was pretty happy as i had no idea if this would work or not! ps I did this about 3 days ago and it hasnt yet shown signs of dry water marks.. still 100% shiny black!!! that is a win for WD-40.





Updates to come:
-powdercoated Style 95's
-gloss black rear diffuser

Good job with the grilles, gloss looks heaps better then matte!

Looking forward to see the gloss black diffuser. I've been thinking of painting mine as well since its sort of starting to fade.

Gloss black diffuser should look pretty sick.
