M3 side mirrors will be complete. Don't paint the whole frame. Paint only the mirror housing and leave the arm black. It will give the window an extended look.

I had planned on going OEM but couldn't justify putting that much money into body parts on a car this old. So I went with Khoalty's replicas which are very inexpensive.

The side skirts went on without a hitch. Although I would recommend re-using your oem clips if they aren't broken. The clips with the kit are made of very cheap plastic and snap really easily.

Ran into a lot of trouble removing my stock rear bumper. One of the two hex bolts stripped on us. We tried everything, even welded some allen keys on the end to unscrew it with no luck. The bolt eventually broke off, took four hours to completely remove it.



Installing the khoalty rear bumper was very easy. The fitment is incredible! Very pleased with the bumper, and would highly recommend it. Just be careful with the diffusor, the plastic tabs on it are really brittle and break easily! Other than that it fits great.

Here are some pics (cell phone pics for now):

Suspension had not settled in the first picture




Will take some proper pics when I get a chance.
19 in wheels?

Thanks, not a big fan of CF though. I think the stock diffusor flows better with my matte grills and CS splitters.

Makes a huge difference, and really easy to install (as long as your bolts aren't rusted haha).
