Yes, we ran out half way through. But it's finished now and matches pretty well IMO

Yeah, they're on their way. I had the m3 for about a year and it was sagging and warping and I really like the oem look I feel like it flows now that it's lowered

Okay well I advise you change molding back to black. I don't like how sedan bumpers and all the moldings are painted to match unless front bumper is an m3 or coupe mtech 2 bumper just my opinion

Scary today. Driving into a neighborhood (thank good) and I hear a pop and then my car comes crashing down to the ground and I see my wheel bouncing into someone's yard 50 feet away. My lugs snapped. Now the studs are stuck on the hub so I ordered a new spindle... Lesson of the day: don't buy cheap lightweight lugs... Went and also bought hub centric 12mm spacers with oem extended lugs.
