IMO I haven't seen one LB kit where the wheels sat right. Maybe Creaminz when he had the splatter painted BBS LM, but most of the time the gaps are still off and they need to look like the RWB porsches to be right. Problem is (as seen above) you can't slam the front too much w/ the big lip there so you're left with some wheel gap.

Yet you buy another E9X and do some disgusting things to it. You dirty bastard.

Are you planning to have them fabricate a fender liner? I have noticed that the Liberty cars have no fender liner and the tires end up hitting the old fender cut-out when the car is lowered to get a flush fitment. Plus they just leave a bunch of raw unfinished cavities in the fender. That was a big turn off for me. I have yet to see one of these kits executed well.... Most look OK from a distance but have been a big let down when I get close to view the details. I do however have faith in you as I know that you understand the difference between high quality and a hack job.

I'm excited to see the end result but I am a little skeptical. Your last M3 was so damn clean and IND does such great work. It's going to be hard to beat.

Thanks man, definitely going a bit wilder and much less subtle than the E90 was, but I'm extremely confident that LTMW will make all the necessary trims and configurations to make this kit fit and look perfect!

Surprised you went with LTMW instead of IND.

Hope you do this different. After Darren's setup, these kits became as common as M3 rep bumpers and fake LM's.

I have confidence in you Felix.

LTMW is local and do great work and with excellent experience if not the best with the LB kit! I'm far from a fake bumper and wheel guy LOL!!! If 5 people have the same front lip on there car, does it mean there cars will look the same? Even though the kit has been done before I promise you my car will be unlike anything anyone has ever seen.
