Hi pal, skirts are made by prior design, part of their pd-m kit which I bought separately, james at m-style or Roy at CA auto will be able to supply them and you'll probably find it cheaper to buy from them than direct after you factor shipping & tax. Both been very helpful suppliers for me. Fit was near perfect and the PP (Polypropylene) material is much less brittle and more flexible than fibreglass.

Thinking about saving for a Csl bootlid instead of a spoiler?

Coming along nicely, really like the colour!

Looking fwd to seeing the wheels and mirrors, I'm not a fan of the LCI mirrors.

A CSL boot lid would be a nice addition. That or an Amuse version.....

P.S - I think you might have started something with those skirts, they're just what I've been looking for!

Cheers pal, Not sure about 701's but Chris at CM wheels is a really good honest seller if youre after reps. If you want legit wheels I checked prices with the vmr sponsors on this board and the prices were good, shipping and tax on top but the dollar works in your favour so it balances out nicely.
Gareth at niche conversions stocks a range of vmr's too and is putting in an order this week I think.

Just got the car back with Quaife differential, new suspension, bushings & anti roll bars and am absolutely blown away by the difference, particularly the suspension. Miraculously it's not raining and i haven't driven the car hard enough to really test the bars or LSD so i'm going to give it a few days before i post details on how the car has transformed. Even before I've managed to get the stock runflats off though the ride comfort is night&day from what it was with the msport shocks, the car is now much less of a drama queen with rough b-roads & is gliding over roads that once felt like they had canyon-like potholes.

Hi Alex,

How much did you buy your M3 skirts for and was it from PD or CA? Were yours Reps or OEM and is there a major difference between the two in your experience? Both looks wise and fitment wise?

Have contacted both companies so wonder what region I should expect to be paying.... feel free to PM me if you like :-)

Cheers

Nice so far!

The CF bonnet will ruin it though in my opinion...

M3 style Mirrors in CF will set it off nicely.

How did you get on with the remap in the end, how did it affect your insurance by the way?
