Random mod, random pictures. (iPE content)

05-09-2014 Exhaust on, video coming.





Still doing research on whether to pair it with Challenge Race+ X pipe or Active Autowerk Signature X pipe w/ straight pipe, as well between ModeCarbon or Exotics Tuning diffuser to complete the look.

New Toy for my E92. More pictures and videos to come.


================================================== ==================================================

Put on some white lettering from tredwear. Took almost 5 hours between cleaning tires and glue each letter on individually. I like the result.
iPE exhaust should arrive next week, slowly but car is moving in the right direction so far.

Like the white lettering. Where did you pick them up? Not finding anything under "treadwear"

Glue came with the kit, and you can use any kind of degreaser. I used Auto Finesse Iron Out, clay bar and simple green on both tire surface and each individual letter to make sure I get the best bonding.
Little glue goes a long way, and it'd be a lot easier if you take down each wheel and working on it while its laying flat.
