So if you got new quarter panels (i'm assuming the front?), why not go for the M3 replica ones since you already opted for the m3 rep hood? they sell them on Umnitza's website
As for the lights, I have Xenons which makes my upgrade options limited to OSS I believe (maybe I'm wrong -- that's just what I gathered from my limited research). And yeah, I got new front fenders. I sort of considered getting the M3 rep fronts, or having them pull the back quarters a bit but ultimately decided against it. I do want to run wider wheels in the back but not wide enough to justify pulling the fenders (they are already rolled, so 19x10s with 275/30s should fit just fine). I like the hood so far but I may eventually decide to swap it out for a Vorsteiner. The bulge is a little bit larger than I thought it would be, and I don't want to look like a "fake M3" especially since I will likely be going with the M3 rep front bumper eventually.
