The wheels were the first modifications to arrive but they were not the first modifications on the car. The first modifications were a full set of BMW Edition Grills and a full front clear bra.

Bain Mendoza from Doza Designs installed the clear bra. He is a mobile installer that came highly recommended.

He custom cut my clear bra that extended around panel edges.

He did fantastic work and even cleared my GT4 lip!

Here are the grills ready to go on.

I utilized the DIY pages quite a bit during this build. For the tricky side gills I used the tape method described in the DIY section. Basically, you use packaging tape for leverage to pull the chrome gills off and then simply pop in the new ones. Pretty simple but it takes a little more force than you would think . I doubled up on the tape. I used two pieces of tape top and bottom before pulling.
