Looks really good what you've done. Plastidip those finishing rods in the lower grill, install blacklines and call it a day.

That's actually a great idea i never tough about thanks

You're talking about the taillights right? actually I'm planning on doing the Euro Lci conversion in a couple of month,and lci msport front and rear bumper, and the side skirts.

My brother already shipped me the taillights from europe, and I'm seriously considering this trunk lid

Hey we're twins. Looks good! Slide the covers off the side mirrors and plastidip those as well. I also used high temp paint (black) on the exhaust tips. Ditch the run-flats if the tread's are no good and get Michelin PSS. I like the soap pic. TiAg is so easy to keep clean.

OP. Car looks much better now. Get the amber lights coded out too!

Does anyone have a DIY on how to remove the mirror covers? I was thinking about doing this on my Monaco blue.

Looks real good. I love TiAg . I don't like the look of the carbon strip on the CSL trunk. A little tacky imo. Have you decided on a tune yet?

Get new H3 cornering bulbs (I have LCI E90 so the number of the bulb may be different, like H8 or H11). For $13 you can get the GP Thunder 7500k to match your AE's. In the 11th pic you can see that your cornering bulb (adaptive headlight) is still the OEM xenon color.

I don't think there's a proper DIY out there for it but it's real easy to do. Position yourself facing the actual mirror and wedge a credit card or your fingernails (don't use anything that would mar the cover) into the groove on the top between the black molding and the painted cover. Push down and keep working the card or fnails into the groove all around the cover until separation occurs. Push with some force and it will slide off. Good luck

don't do the trunk lid unless you change wheels and suspension first. M-Sport will be a plus.

It will look odd with stock stance.
