M3 rep front on finally!

Finally installed. Going back to the paint shop again tomorrow to get it buffed a little more.





Looks 100% better with this bumper, especially after all the road rash to the old one due to the girlfriend...

Looks good man, do you know how to adjust your hood? You should bring it down a few notches to get rid of that gap, it's pretty easy to do...

What do you mean? It's completely flush except for that one side near the headlight.

I'm talking about the finger sized gap between the bumper and hood...

Lol, I mean how do you fix that if the gap is only in that spot.

I had the same problem in the past, and it's easy to fix, you just adjust your hood latches (not the one in the center, but the far right and left latch) by loosening the retaining screw, once you loosen the screws that hold each hood latch in place, they will be free to move, you can turn them one turn on each side (clockwise to bring the hood down lower), and see how the hood sits, if you still have the gap, you can turn them in another turn. Remember to screw the retaining screws back in place after you adjust them, and before closing the hood.

No problem, and I just noticed that the hood gap isn't noticeable in your other pic that you posted. But it's good to know how to adjust it anyway.
