This is the reason I ask..I have the m3 rep bumper in the shop now..just ordered the air ducts from Tischer..my boy is going to modify the air ducts to deliver air to the brakes like an actual M3..was just wondering if it was necessary but now that I see you have a hole it was a good investment...

OP, where did you hear about a lip coming out for the rep bumper?

edit:
here's what we need for the brake ducts

yea, as is, the ducts are completely removed so I was slightly concerned about enough air getting to the brakes. I don't have any immediate plans to track the car or anything, so I've got some time to worry about that

+1 on the photos of that, I would definitely order the ducts if it all fit in there properly

It looks like it's FINALLY getting done today I've been wanting to get it done forever, just that the local shop has been swamped. Going to try and take a few shots to show more of what i've been working on.

Just heard it at BavX kinda in passing. There really weren't a whole lot of details surrounding it at all, just that it's supposedly in the works right now. Hopefully it's true and there would be a couple of varieties... kinda surprised one isn't out yet, those rep bumpers are selling like crazy too.

Thanks, stoked you guys like it!

Headlights are the LS3 V1s, bumper is from BavX (painted by K&W), and I forget the offsets haha I'll get back to you on that one.

Still need to take more pics, just need to find the camera charger... to my point-n-shoot camera. Anyone doing a shoot with a legit camera in the so cal area anytime soon?

Thanks! Actually just got that done by InStyle Graphics here in LA, and Harris did an amazing job. Took me forever to get it done, but it looks sooo much better. All the chrome thats left are Vanguard tips... for now

Also not sure about the 3D lip fitting, i'll look into that more for sure
