Yea i know what you mean, lights was the last thing i was gonna do but for that price i couldnt really turn it down. You need to read the next word carbon roof SPOILER hahaha not quite gonna take it that far with the roof

Im just in the process of wrapping my interior trim, first time ive tried it and feck me its not easy. I ordered gloss black but the numptys sent me a carbon fibre look which i swore i'd never try but to be fair its not the cheap looking stuff although it only cost 10 haha. Ive done the door panels and it looks half decent

I've always thought the roof spoiler looks good, where did you get your's from dude? I know that taiwanese guys, BCMOTO does them and going off his boot spoiler, I'll happily buy off him again but good to know where u bought urs from?

Also, how is the CSL boot lid quality? Is it built to last? Pm with me details of price etc if u don't mind dude, I know u picked up from Teddy as I was reading your other post but good to know aswell pricewise and ur experience with it :-)

Loving it so far!

Love it love it, thing for me that makes it are the VMR 710's, especially in Graphite like you've now got something that I'm looking at getting for mine in the new year on my Space Grey 335i. CSL boot lid is something that I had on my old 330d E46 and again is something that I'll address with mine soon,wouldn't mind seeing a pic or two or your Space Grey car especially from the side Skelts.

Finally where did you get your roundels from? Oh and the pics by makkan are superb

The wheels were originally matte black but i much prefer this colour as it shows the lines better. Personally i think the wheels get more looks now than they did. Bought from Chris at cmwheels.

Roundels i got off ebay along with the wheels centres

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-E82-E8...item1c2be6c035

Ill try dig some shots of the space grey out if i can mate, dont really have any since its been stripped with the parts i now have on the black one.

I just fancied one and went for the smaller lip and im happy with it to be fair, i just need the diffuser to match to blend it in. I had a bad experiance with a taiwanese sell (happybuyitnow) done me a deal and didnt send it (absolute w**ker) I used a company from honk kong called zenaracing and the quality and fit is superb.

BCMOTO do a diffuser i like so thats good to know.


I bought a aero rear bumper and the bootlid in a package of here and i paid 400 for the pair so really only like 200-300. I compared it with a forum member and the essex meet who had a csl lid too. His was from teddy at ssdd and the quality and fit looked exactly the same. for what it cost me im more than happy with it but my faults are the edges on top sit proud and due to it being fibre glass certain angles show ripples acroos the paint but acceptable.

Roll on December

Cheers Steve.
I am glad that Nick changed the colour of the wheels. Black wheels on black car look mono tonus and does take away the grace of wheels.

VNR 710 would be my next wheels if I change AluFelgens.

Quick update

Well the December mods didnt really go to plan as suggested above, i ended up only completing 1 of them which was the Angel eyes and although they are not the brightest for the price they was i couldnt say no (thanks Ian ) Still a big difference as you can see. They are AiB's. Ive taken a bad night shot of them next to lci lights and pre lci lights to show the difference. Tried to get day shots but its impossible to capture.

After the essex meet Jeff and Nick talked me into changing the paddles and getting rid of the push pull paddles which were a waste of time. What a difference this makes so much more fun and despite my hestitations for it being a diesel and not reving high i do use them. So cheers lads

Big thanks to Nick (NJ 1161) who kindly fitted the paddles and made me look like a nob as i couldnt get the steering wheel off and he did it in about 5seconds cheers mate .

My car is booked in on thursday and friday for some performance mods, wasnt planning on doing it just yet as i wanted to do all the cosmetics but after driving the 07 to nottingham i forgot how big the difference is.

Ill update later on in the week, watch this space

Sounds stupid but they have more of a feel to them and you can feel the click where as you cant feel nothing on the clumpy factory ones and easier to use. Well worth doing.
