I just ordered the M3 rear spoiler. It looks like you did that to yours.. I might send you a PM to have you come help (not that it will be difficult, but knowing me I will put it on upside down or something).

You put on that M3 bumper? Where did you have it painted? I am thinking of ordering the same one for my coupe.

Nice thread, never hurts to have a helping hand.

I'm at Parmer and Mopac, but will keep this in mind. Especially in the upcoming months.

That's cool. I've debated retrofitting mine with I-drive, but don't have enough DIY experience to dare trying... maybe if I put enough money together I'll contact you

(I live downtown)

i am happy to help i will say that i haven't done an i-drive retro yet as mine came with i-drive. I have read a few DIY's on it in case i ever wanted to mess with mine or had an issue that i couldn't warranty done on. I have installed multiple audio and navigation units in the past when i used to manage an audio shop in Lubbock years ago so i think it is pretty doable.

Wow - I have say that doing new rotors and pads at 58k miles was much more of a chore than I was expecting. But now I know the tricks (thanks my best friend and lead mechanic at Land rover).

bring it on anytime!

Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend! I'm off to boil some crawfish 120lbs to be exact.
