Dropped the car off today to get 35% 3M Color Stable tint installed all around. Also ordered a BMW Performance automatic shift knob. I think it will tie in the suede headliner well.

Also you'll love the BMW performance shift knob!

Is it weird? I haven't been around many steel blue cars so I wouldn't know. I am thinking I may convert most of the interior to black besides the seats and center console and just have grey accents. The grey gets so freaking dirty.

Yeah the BMW Performance knob looks sweet I think it will be a nice upgrade from the wood knob which no longer matches lol.

Going to post up some pics of the tint in a few minutes. Ended up also tinting the windshield with 50% 3M Crystalline. It has 98% IR rejection. The car is much cooler on the inside now.

I also order up the ZHP side skirts and the entire front end of the car and side skirts are getting painted while I am at the beach next week! Can't wait!

Ok the performance knob came in. I also got the tires mounted on the new wheels.

The car should be out of the body shop Thursday.

I bought a used full zhp suspension off a forum member. I went this route because it should give the car a nice sporty feel and look but not be too harsh or low for her liking. It should be here this Saturday and then I can install it Sunday.

Also going ton order a zhp spoiler clear lights and suede shift boot and parking brake boot.

Car is out of the body shop! It started to rain so I only got one pic. I love how it looks with the zhp bumper and facelift hood.

Thanks! I bought the cf wrap from metrorestyling and I bought a 24x48 roll but had a fair amount left over. You could get by with a 24x36 probably

Here's some more pics of the car. Got the new wheels mounted, fogs installed, and euro plate.









Zhp suspension came in today. Also ordered clear light kit, suede boots, aluminum pedals, and a zhp trunk spoiler

Installed the clear corners, side markers and ZHP spoiler this morning before work. Installed the taillights tonight but its too dark to get a picture. Should be installing the suspension this week as well as a full detail and finishing up most of the interior. Still gotta find some dove grey sport seats and an M3 steering wheel.

Much better

Aluminum pedals came in today too. Got too distracted by the NBA Finals to work on the car tonight. Probably install the pedals and suede boots tomorrow. Also need to go to the junkyard and grab a shifter surround and sunroof control panel. Both have bad clips Let me know if anyone has either laying around.

love the tail lights much more now. Hey, did the facelift hood just fit right on or did anything need to be modified?
