same goes for OEM m3... it's really not that difficult. you just need to make a couple holes bigger on the fender and add a couple washers here and there. just takes some patience...

Wow, that's an awesome shot of Lane's car. I want.
The sideskirts are getting painted at Paul's and I should be good to go. I still cant justify spending 400 bux on a set of mirrors, but we'll see.

toby.. all ur parts fit so well, if u can live with some gap then get it.. but dont buy it expecting to make it fit perfectly after a few minutes of adjusting the fenders


that caused your warping? the stock 3er hood shocks were too strong?

It was a nightmare when I was adjusting my hood, and did not line up the latches correctly before I slammed it shut. It was a ***** to get it to open again.
