    The car was dropped off yesterday, very happy with the overall condition of the body/paint/interior. However there are a few things I’ll need to address that were unexpected (working on your car is half the fun, right?)

    The first items I gave attention to were replacing the blacked out kidney grills back to chrome, installing the smoked StarTecs, and getting the 370mm Mtech I wheel in there.

    I’ll eventually photograph more progress and update in a new thread for those that are interested.

            Lol that’s on the bucket list my friend!

            What does everyone think of the trunk badge placement? It’s not 110% perfect but I think it’s darn close? Honest criticisms are encouraged. I don’t have the space to snap better photos at the moment.

            Edit: Sorry for the dirty paint, it will get a well deserved detail shortly.

              No flash.

              Edit: FML I think the ///M badge looks slightly off, or maybe I’m being overly critical.

                Fixed the M3 badge for ya Austin.

                Question for everyone; are there variations with euro grills? Notice that the “slots” are different. Perhaps one is a reman..? Idk.

                        Is the flap on the rear wing painted or carbon fibre? Photos look like it’s painted.

                          Neither, looks and feels like plastic, it’s not paint matched to the rest of the car.

                            Aw crappy. One of the owners must have swapped out the DTM carbon wing I put on there. Does it go flush, or always stick up one level at its lowest?

                              Hmm.. it looks like it’s fixed/non-adjustable. Bummer.

                                I added the Evo III splitter (thank you Markus!)

                                installing that was a bitch.
