Hopefully not spoiling any surprises here, but as listed above Elmo is going with the M3 Rep bar and M3 air ducts... indicating he'll be doing a fog light delete for his front bar. This, I reckon will look pretty tough.

Here's one an e90post member has already done... and in Elmo's silver colour, it'll be v unique.

Clean S15's are mint and yours was a good example, keep updating this thread with news about your car, seems like a good project

Finally, had some time to install the M3 E9x DCT paddle shifters & M3 steering wheel trim.

Thanks to Ibinco for the paddles and Stuart (BMR) for the wheel trim




Here's a shot of the M3 Shifter retrofit kit, all the shift lights work



Reason I replaced my wheel trim, mine started peeling off.



Removing the airbag was a PITA!

You really need the M3 steering wheel to set it off with the paddles and trim.
One can never stop.

Direct fit! Mine came pre-wired to my auto so all the lights work.

Hahaha the S15 was not my daily, the blast pipes were only installed late last year before trackday.

Thanks to Jason at Euro-Division for the M3 kit. Still can't believe Jason fit the front bar, rear bar and side skirts into the 335I haha.

Over the weekend I picked up the kit from the painters and we installed the M3 front and side skirts. I didn't install the fog lights cause I'll be removing them and replacing the side grills with air ducts as Stuart mentioned.




Had some time after work today so I installed the Mtech rear with diffuser by myself, piss easy to do, only took me around 40mins.




Meistershaft GT Racing exhaust. Thanks to Steven and Jin from Active Motorwerkes for installing the exhaust and servicing the car!






LUX H8 V3 angel eyes and matte black kidney grills.

Looking awesome mate!!!

Those fog lights look shit I reckon also, the fog ducts are 100X times better!

Cant believe how huge those mufflers look, I love the quirky design and it reeks of high quality craftsmanship.

Shame you weren't in Sydney I would have loved to have perved on your ride sometime

+1 to the fog lights lol

The tips are huge! They don't suit the car reason I'm changing them to smaller quads.

Drive down to Melbourne hahahaha

Those side grills for the fogs are temporary until I get the M3 air ducts, once the M3 air ducts go in, the stock ducts (brake ducts and oil cooler duct) will need to be removed.

I will let you know when I've completed the fog delete with M3 air ducts.

Please post up some pics of what you have to do also please (I was under the assumption you trimmed the M3 ducts to suit?)

Yes that's correct, a bit of trimming of OEM M3 ducts.

Elmo hopefully have the ducts to you early next week

The only lip I like is the GTS style lip for the M3, I don't think it'd fit onto our reps though.

Duke Dynamics quad diffuser arrived today, took around a week to deliver



Fitment looks to be okay for now, due to the current big ass tips I can't push the diffuser into the clips. This Saturday I should be able to find out the proper fitment with the new quad tips.



Also, the Meistershaft GT Racing quad tips (glossy black)





Undecided on what color I should go with the diffuser, the tips are glossy black.
Any suggestions?
