Nice upgrades buddy, sorry but I'm not feeling those wheels but purely my opinion. Otherwise a brillaint set of mods! How is the fitment of M3 side skirts?

Next mod: Rear Mudflap delete!

*Aero front lip spoiler
*m3 style rear lip spoiler
*18 ins alloys
*LED angel eyes
*Xenon look front fog lights
*lowering springs - 35mm front & 25mm rear
*mosselman ecu remap
*20mm spacer at the back
*15mm spacer at the front

...to go on (so far):

I'm with AWBimmer on the wheels I'm afraid, otherwise really like what you've done. Care to comment on your remap?

P.S. Please loose those mudflaps!

lol yes the mudflaps are going, just dint not have the time to do it
the remap is noticeable, the car is much more responsive and the slight increase in BHP is also noticeable

Nice mobs... well, apart from those wheels, the original OEM ones look 100% better.

You going to keep the chrome look or going to go black grills etc?

I will be going to get the grille done in black, but also that would mean getting the window trims in black too.

the fitment on the skirts are not 100%, but near enough. I guess it is the same with almost any after market stuff.

Hmmm just checked their website and it seems you paid 380 for a 10bhp increase...

The fitment could be better, but as stated, being an after market product it would be hard to get a 100% fitment. I fitted the skirts myself, so I guess if it was done by a body shop they would have preped it up properly.

Re: fitment, where is it that you're not entirely happy with since I'm also opting for these most likely.

Im not 100% happy with the fitment on the inner sill (near the door frame). On one of skirts the rear is not 100% flush. apart from that its all good

Even in the states it is hard to get one which is oem fitment. They are aftermarket of course.
Massive improvement on the stock look. Looks like mstyle did a decent job right?

I will be having mine supplied and fitted my mstyle in the next week so I'll keep you posted.

Ant can you take close pics of where the fitment has issues?

Thanks
