BTW, congrats on the wheels..
Thanks! Anyone has to spend 3 minutes on this forum to know Marco and Kevin are the go-to guys.

Just can't wait to get the car!

I kid.

I don't have the mod itch like most on this forum do, for better or worse, so I won't be doing anything crazy.

My tint's only going to be 35% and I'll be running OEM 19s for the first year at least.

I am really considering the Performance Spoiler - looks too sweet to resist.

Most importantly, and unfortunately, there will be a license plate in the middle so you're a-ok there.

I was thinking of getting a vanity plate that says "NTGkaps".....

If you mention Group Buy to John (Auto-links) over @ e90post.com ... I think he will knock off another $20 or so off the quoted price
Seconded John at Auto-Links, the group buy is still in effect I'm sure... I paid under $300 tax in for my E90 and went with 30% Pinnacle. Fantastic work and definitely recommended.

I have an original 3m clear bra on my car from the original owner since new... its starting to fade a bit, and not look as clear... I'm worried it will yellow my alpine white paint... can this happen? I want to get it redone.

How much does Marco charge for a clear bra the entire front end of my 335i cabriolet?

what about just doing headlights? want to keep my OEM headlights in pristine condition.

How can I get a hold of this recommended clear bra installer and who is the best detailer?

Totally forgot.

New car detail was done by Kevin at www.****************. BMW Toronto refused "to not" do the PDI new car prep but I still had Kevin do the entire exterior. He told me that car was in decent shape but did have contamination and minor blemishes from the delivery process (and had pics to prove it!)

Marco at Advanced Mobile then put on a clear bra (full hood, front bumper, fendors, headlights and rear wheel impact area). As others on this forum have said, they both did an amazing job and car looks mint.

Pics to follow as soon as John at Auto-Links does the tint.

Still looked like a beast though.
