My road to M-Sport

So after a couple months of talking to sponsors (both replica and OEM) I finally got a little curious to look on Ebay (yes the US ebay sucks) and I do have a friend that lives in the UK so I go on Ebay.UK and started the hunt and there are a few used parts (some are better than the others) but a lot of the dealers don't ship outside of the UK, this would work for me by sending it to my friend and having him send it over to me, he has already agreed to it . Well truth be told I got a little impatient with looking and finally found one (and he ships to the US)

So 2XX something dollars later this will be at my house


So as it stands I am about 3XX dollars ahead vs buying a rep


I am not on the hunt for mesh and fogs

That is on my list (if this deal goes smooth) and I know he ships now I will have him keep an eye out. I would assume color doesn't matter?

Did you do the 335is ducts?

I have explored that route and it looks good but I do like fog lights as well

I'm using the mtech vents. There is a void where the foglights would go, I'm planning on making a custom vent to fill the entire area.

Awesome


When this ships I am going to get in touch with him and have him look out for other M-Sport parts (I would like a rear) and I can see if he can get 2 and I can combine shipping

Sorry this took so long, last weekend was busy. As you will see in the pics I still need to cut out the tabs for the grilles on the side vents. I'll get around to that one of these days, they are covered with black vinyl for the time being.

Got shipping confirmation the other day from the seller (pretty legit guy)

He has another one (should be close in price) I would be glad to play middle man and broker the deal to save some people money if they would like

It's not "100%" but nothing a little time @ the body shop can't fix





Game on!

I could here is a caveat

You will need to contact him about "international" shipping his prices are a little different for that vs what is listed

Need to be mindful of the conversion rates

I use this : http://www.xe.com/ucc/

His packaging is a little subpar (just bubble wrap) but it is what it is, and the body shop has to do a full re-paint on them anyway so I wasn't worried.

Thanks, found the "middle" mesh piece still on the hunt for the side mesh/fogs (thinking of going w/ "replica" M6 fogs) they will fit and have a projector. I need to contact Tischer and see if the mesh parts can be bought separately before I pull the trigger and kick myself for it
