Front needed some work but finding a front bar or splitters for the M3 rep bar just wasnt happening. The front lip wouldn't fit because the car was riding so low and the M3 rep splitters just don't exist, so came across a thread where the dude has plastidipped the vents, so I gave it a go

Very simple and clean look, I love it.
Have you thought about LCI taillights?

Coming along nicely. LCI tails would look great.

Which vinyl was used on your roof?
