Some great mods so far, especially LCI rear lights. Are you getting the bumpers standard?

I've done a deal on the front end so just waiting on that and I've got a pair of sport side skirts propping up my garage wall lol.

Still undecided on the rear as I currently have an aero rear bumper but need the correct diffuser OR go sport rear bumper.

I still love the 4.8is and the sound is truly awesome with the custom exhaust.

Thinking of the burger one to integrate with the JB4.

My next two mods in one post. And I love it because you've made it look relatively easy to slot new black grilles and new hids haha. I'm not the most patient modder and have been known to smash things in with a hammer before lol! Cars looking good raj. Keep the updates coming!

The grilles weren't too bad as you just have to remove the top 5 bolts that holds the top of the bumper in. Then it's just a matter of getting your hand in to release the bottom tabs (I find this easier). The AE bulbs are a little trickier as there isn't much room but again only took a few minutes tbf.

So another item ticked off the list. Again bought these before the car lol and finally got the caps colour coded. Genuine M3 mirrors with auto dimming (need to get this option coded though).

From these:

To these:

I love em and will go well once all the other bits are all done.

Thanks,

Raj.

M3 mirrors for me were always a marmite on Non M.. but this looks wicked - maybe I'm biased as it's a silver LOL.

Not long left now eh Raj until you get the other bit through A nice transformation enroute

I really like em and always knew I was gonna add them. It's about seeing the future vision LOL.

Still unsure what to do at the rear of mine tbh.

i nearly bought this car last year. Was sat on a set of CSL reps originally. I bought a complete M Sport front bumper and a set of hubcentric wheel spacers to fit my old Rota GTR wheels to it.

The seller ignored all my calls the day before we arranged to meet up.
We reorganised to a day in the week (i took a day off work), and he contacted me at half 10 the night before saying his son was ill.

I got pissed off about being messed about and bought a 135i

Yes Raj looks wicked!!

As for the rear, I think an M Sport rear bumper and an Ericsson Amuse style bootlid would look awesome...

http://www.**********s.com/ea-trunk-...-frp-or-cf.htm

I thnk M Style do a cheaper version!

Thats what i would do if the wife didn't give me so much grief about the car!!

Cheers buddy. I've been thinking about going sport rear but I've still got the aero rear but need the correct diffuser. It's already painted too so would be the cheaper option. I do prefer the sport rear to aero though. Hmmm.

I get plenty of grief too don't worry lol. I just tend to do it anyway and take the flack for it for about 5 mins then all forgotten lol.

Aero is just as good an alternative, will also match what you are doing at the front!

Looking good..... look forward to seeing the progress!

The issue with M3 mirrors, if you're not going to do any body mods, they look out of place... but that's my opinion!

Think they'll look good with the rest of the car once finished.
