fun fact about the 911 turbo, in heavy rain, belts get wet pretty easy and make horrible noises that stress the fuck out of you until you find this fun fact on 6speed.

I had rented a car this weekend, a Mazda 6, $33, I found out it had bald tires, (Thanks Hertz) and drove in that downpour from Rockford to Woodfield on 90 like a little old lady...

I probably would have went Mtech after seeing yours and a few others, but the fog delete definitely makes a nice difference. Oh and getting the bumper for a 1/3rd of the price didn't hurt.

Speaking of which, any photoshoots of your car with the mtech front?

Does the bumper interfere with the less wide fenders? Or was that one specifically made for the non-M's?

Have any of you guys sold your cars with mods still on them? I was thinking down the road what mods should be taken off (as they're either profitable to sell on their own or not desirable to potential car buyers) opposed to what mods aren't worth the labor reverting back to stock.

I have, it all depends on whether you have stock parts or not. On the 335i I sold majority of the stock parts and at the end of the day wasnt worth it for me to swap back. It wasnt worth it for me to source parts and then pay someone to install and swap out the parts. Older cars was worth it

I took everything off but the head lights. All in I spent $8,700 on it and got cash of $4,240 back. I dont think I would have gotten a $4k premium for those parts on the car.

True. I would definitely change the wheels and exhaust back, but am unsure if the labor to change the springs and get another alignment would be worth it if I could only get $500-600 for the springs.

Yea, I wont do that. I spent $350 to have my dps and fmic swapped back and got $1,125 for the two, so worth the effort. My headlights stayed on the car cause it wasnt worth the switch. Was only getting offers in the $400 range and a swap was going to costs $250-300 that I tried to push on the buyer with little luck. Couple hundred bucks isnt worth my time to meet and get them swapped out.
