Nice, I like the proposed changes thanks for the ideas. The headlights would make a big difference. Probably look into that when budgets are looking nicer. Will paint those bits in the lower grill after we're done relocating too had been planning on it, should be moved in April.

Car is sitting differently now too, I wasn't pumped on the fitment and realized I'd rebuilt them with the centers in the wrong ones, so swapped rear wheel centers to front and vice versa. Pulled the rears in 3/8's of an inch and pushed the fronts out the same amount, will post some pics eventually.

Yeah quite a few future plans, although I'm just a couple months into my masters program, starting a new job and moving so budgets are destroyed, probably no more car stuff this year in the interests of marital sustainability.

Future plans in the short term are mostly maintenance; plugs and walnut blast. Also would like to start making the engine bay a bit more unique, I have a custom remote CAI that I haven't finished installing, after that I'd like to customize the bay in the same black/white/polished theme as the exterior. FMIC is on the short list also.

Would like to do those all clear headlights and one day do the front bumper, but thinking I like the look of the 1M more than Msport, time will tell that's a long way off. Eventually when I learn more about tuning I'll probably go with a different platform than the Cobb but we'll see.

Did some more stuff over the last weekend.

Windshield cracked recently...


Replaced on friday.


Adjustable toe end links.


Remote cold air intake, I know they don't really make a difference but I like the look of the engine bay more like this.


Wanted to delete amber from headlights but I haven't got much disposable income at the moment so I did this...










Painted the trim pieces in the grill black as well, wasn't liking them in silver.



Overall pretty happy with the headlight change, aside from that they yellowed noticeably from clearcoating which was frustrating.

Still have some shaping to do, going to build another piece to smoothly contour the front splitter up to the front bumper and then start on a rear diffuser.
