Good job with the mods! That front lip looks killer on your M3.

I disconnected the the high pressure washer fluid pump to the headlights and removed all the lines. Very easy to take off, actually.

Esquire - I have to say I love your car. I lurked this thread long before I joined the site or owned an M3. I even went out of my way to find a CPO in this color and had no luck.

Keep up the great mods

thanks for the kind words and the suggestions man. good stuff. i remember, your vote to fully blackout the OSS was the one that kinda pushed me over the edge. you kind of have to trust a guy's opinion who's seen SO many different M3's.

Pinhead,

Though I don't agree (at all) with how you delivered the message, I actually have no problem taking the criticism. I'm super open to hearing people be critical of certain aspects of my car - if nothing else, I can take those critiques and use them to make my car look even cleaner. The r-CRT lip is a bit of a unique lip - and i guess because it doesn't fit the mold, it's pretty much a love it or hate it reaction. I love it. But I appreciate the criticism that you're giving - namely that you don't think it fits the lines of the M3. I'lll take it in consideration. Lips aren't permanent - in fact they're probably the least permanent mod on a car. With time I might try something else. In the future though man, maybe don't be so quick to go for the jugular when you offer a critique of someone's car.



Thanks again everyone.

I've seen the OSS in person and they are incredibly bright and detailed.

I really like that lip too. I'm sort-of considering one also and have the same requirements as you - namely not ripping it off withing 5 hours of ownership : P

Car looks amazing!

The more I look at the OSS, the more I'm impressed with them. They are super bright. I'm just waiting til this weekend to snap some higher quality photos for the thread.

If those are your requirements, then i think there are really only a few options out there for you - the rCRT being one of them.

you know, pics CAN do the color justice, but you need to be a good photographer - otherwise you get too much contrast in there, it makes the yellow look washed out and the black wheels look invisible.

Esquire your car is looking fantastic. Love the OSS headlights, actually considering them myself. The lip sets your front end off.

This has become one of my favorite threads on the board. Your car is amazing!

Question: Does the carbon fiber of Revinora match the rest of the car (Stock & Challenge)?

Here's something that no one will agree with: The reflectors don't look bad at all!! You wanna see bad, check 'em out on my Silverstone II.
