^^^ Thanks. I wish we had the 300h so we're even

I did a super tiny mod.

Had some left over tint so put it to good use. To help blend the WHITE front plate a tiny bit more into the spindle grill, I applied 35% tint to the clear plastic cover. You can see the difference before/after below. Any darker though and I'll get pulled over.

you've done it on daylight no? Great result. Now seems a homogeneous front except for the headlights. Would be a perfect front if you had the full led headlights with black background.

There is vinyl wrap for headlights that looks so good, but ours headlights unfortunatly have a complex form and tint these is difficult.
The ORIGINAL vinyl Brand called LAMIN-X, but there are chinese material that gives great results.

I paste ebay link:
http://www.ebay.es/itm/LIGHT-VINYL-T...a4be6e0&_uhb=1

(I work with the fifth vinyl colour of the first row)

Ive worked with this material in other cars and looks good.
You see my works!!

^^^thanks. I've had to recently reapply the blue marker to the stitching as it was faded. I don't mind doing this once a year for the results it gives! Just a few mins and a steady hand is all it takes.

Amazing ride man. I love what you did with the CF wrap. The near the fog lights is that a 3d version?

Just got my RSR down springs installed last Saturday(AWD also) and couldn't be happier. The fears will be very close but I haven't rubbed yet with the exact tire size as yours only with Vossen CVTs you're gonna love the stance.

Nice! And yeah, no rubbing expected, but I know it's borderline.

Agree on the stance and it's what further improves the car's look even more.

Post a pic of you car in the sticky 3IS Pics thread post-drop.

Didn't want a resonator delete (straight pipes) combined with my Magnaflow axle back to avoid rasp, so instead, I lucked out with another custom and yes, incredibly ironic setup.

I got BMW M3 resonators installed and love the incremental additional volume and burly tone it adds to the Magnaflow. P.S. Props to Quick Muffler for this setup!


Stock resonators, about 14" long


BMW e92 M3 xpipe, resonators about half the size with a much larger inner pipe of 2.5".



Cut BMW e92 M3 resonator



Cutting my OEM resonators



2" inner pipe surrounded by loads of sound deadening fiberglass in the OEM resonators



Cutting stainless steel pipe to weld the M3 resonators



Installing...



Done!

Interesting exhaust setup. No sound clip? Those wheels are going to look sweet on your car
