I bought the hood on ebay and have never heard that it may need hood pins until now, from doing a little research on google it seems to be recommended if you plan to track the car but not essential. I have had the hood on for over a year now without any problems.

I have been toying around with the idea, of switching to these roundels. Do you guys think these would work on my car, or should I just stick with the oem style?

Hey man, I came here after following your sig link from the LCI console thread.

I just want to drop a note that you have really transformed your car. Well done, man, well done.

Joe Stewart's body shop did a great job of installing it, but as you can see from the pics the fitment was flawless. Look at those lines and judge for yourself:

No spacers, the wheels are 5'' wider in the back.

Yeah I'm pretty sure that you are just butthurt about this thread that you posted in lol: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=927447 And that's pretty funny to hear from someone with a huge M stripe on the front of their non M car lol!

I'm not trying to fool anyone that it's an M3 I didn't put any badges on it or the m3 fenders, like some clowns do. I just like the style of those parts.

I could say that your car shows 'wana be LCI owner' in a similar way .
