Got the hood on last night, just need to set up a time to get it painted. Hopefully they aren't too busy.
The hood install was surprisingly easier than I thought it would be. Just takes a lot of fine tuning to get the gaps right and to make it latch correctly.

All of the conversion stuff came out to around 1700 with shipping and the headlight I picked up new on Ebay for for around 650 and just salvaged the ballast and control unit off of the destroyed headlight.

Just got off the phone with the shop and they can't paint the parts until Monday.

Been there done that. That 30ish pound sub I had in my old S2000 (it was placed in the tool well in the trunk) added a full second to my lap times at Beaverun. As you can tell, I am more for weight reduction, not adding. I have gotten past my audiophile phase of time and I use to be really into it back in the day adding loots and lots of weight. At that time I like Bazooka tubes since they were not to heavy. Now if I can make myself loos 20-30!
Points well taken, and if this were going to be a dedicated track car I wouldn't even be considering this, but on my DD there have to be compromises. Realistically the corner mounted sub would be somewhere under 20 lbs, the rest of the weight would be in the amp that would be where the Sirius module normally goes. The added weight on that side of the trunk will be countered by the meth reservoir that I'm planning on putting on the driver's side. Frankly, I was thinking shifting the weight balance rearward might help overcome my xi's stubborn predisposition towards understeer

The e92 is kind of a frustrating platform for integrating quality bass since there is nowhere to put a sub in the cabin and no passthrough to the trunk. I don't think I'll ever outgrow my "audiophile phase"...if anything, I'm getting more into it with age. One of the primary, if not principle, motivators for trading my Evo X in for the Bimmer was the cabin noise on the highway.

Got my parts painted and my car is almost done, just need to add the lower grills and fog lights.
Next week I'm planning on taking some nice pictures when I get it all put together.
