Not missing anything...I gotta reset the hood locks by the left and right side of the hood.....I Intentionally raised it a bit, (more air gets inside the engine bay), if you pop the hood you will notice that they are moved pretty easily...not the center hood lock the left and right locking points.

Looks great but the gap is a bit concerning...I see what you are trying to do with the hood, did it work? Is the gap gone or at least narrowed? I would figure adjusting too much would mess the hood to fender alignment up.

Ummmmmm.......read the post above? I drive the car pretty aggressive to be honest, the gap is by choice.....in the 6 years through many tries I have ifound it to be beneficial to DCI to have a slight gap... I can make it as flush as possible/ No gap.

Yeah, mines came in "primed" as well but please tell me you do plan to prime it and sand it down your self too. Never trust anyones "Primed" claims on car parts.....I did back in the day with my e46, the adhesion provided by the bought "primed" product was a joke....had to strip the paint down, and re do it... Talk about a capital PITA. Prime it yourself C.

I concur...By primed I was talking about my priming. I have painted (hvlp gun) several cars and used to build motorcycles. I wouldnt trust any piece sent to me, as you know a good finished product is all about the time and effort you put into the prep work

I used this guy with fantastic results, same M3 front bumper as above , plus M3 side skirts and Mtec rear bumper. I did full body kit from the same EBAY seller. Search "fantastic body shop - Bellevue" on this forum, and you can see som pictures. Amazing product and the shop see a lot of products come through and vouched for this one being very solid and high quality!!!
