What size are the OEM M6 wheels? They look super hot. It is very hard to beat the factory forged wheels.

They are the same size as stock 19" 220M, the offsets are more aggressive though. Front is 19X8.5 ET12 (no rubbing with 245/35R19, rubs slightly with 255/35R19 on extreme turns), rear is 19X9.5 ET17.

So with the month of Trauma Surgery behind me, it's time to think about what I should be doing with my car. I ordered the 3M Di-Noc car skin from PYSpeed last week and received it this week. I'll be doing my roof with the CF patterned Di-Noc car skin next week at Accutint's Seattle location.

In case you are wondering what that is, see this:



The other front is my front lip. As many of you recall, I am one of the first ones to order the Revinora race lip and to have actually received it. However, it wasn't without a struggle. Many of you have wondered if they were a legitimate company, my answer to you is, I can't really tell. The reason why I have not installed the lip on my car is not due to schedule. The lip arrived damaged. The bottom of the lip separated from the top, even before I unwrapped all the bubble wrap.







The only good thing that came out of this is that Euro Auto Works did have Revinora refund the money to me in a speedy manner. They were very apologetic about it and even offered a new free lip in compensation, which I initially declined. However, Pritpal @ EAW insisted that I should accept it since it's a gratuity from Revinora and so I did. However, after almost 2 months, a lip still has yet to be seen. I have sent an email to the owner of Revinora a while back and that was met with zero reply.

Would I recommend dealing with EAW? Hell yeah, their service was great.

Would I recommend dealing with Revinora? Hell NO!

Is the 3M carbon look roof matte or semi gloss? I just may do this to my car. Very interested.

The Di-Noc looks pretty matte to me, but I'm sure you can find a body shop to clear coat over it to make it glossy.

Hoping to get the roof done and then get the car into the body shop to get the front bumper refinished and the OSS headlights installed during my upcoming vacation.

Teaser of the roof after getting the 3M Di-Noc car skin installed, waiting to get the shark fin painted Jet Black to match:



I'll be doing the OSS headlights and get my front bumper refinished this week. That would pretty much sums up the exterior mods for a while until I find a front end solution that I like.

Next few projects on the block are:

1. To continue working to transfer the seat occupancy sensor from the US-spec seat cushion to the Euro-spec cushion and work on getting the seat covers to replace the US-spec seat bottoms to Euro-spec.

2. Thinking about a BBK upgrade with the summer wheels, possibly doing the GT4 brake ducts upgrade too.

Show the whole car! Show the whole car!! I can't wait to see this Kev.

I'm surprised that you weren't able to wrap the fin in CF vinyl, or did you choose to just paint it?

Yes, I saw a fin wrapped before I didn't like the look, so I'm just going to get it painted for a more OEM look instead.

I agree that the jet black fin will look the best. It will look much more OEM. I actually think the wrap you got looks better than the OEM clear coated CF roof on IB. The clear coat on the OEM roof messes up the contrast with the blue, which is one of the reasons I went with the sunroof.

I'm very excited to see how the OSS headlights look on IB. Can't wait to see pics!

The OSS headlights have to be put on hold for now. I just got some bad news from detail shop. They originally thought they would be able to get the scuff mark off of the driver side headlight but they weren't able to after multiple tries. Therefore, I'm sending that headlight back to OSS so that the angel eyes can be transplanted to a new headlight that I just bought off of ebay. So, it'll probably be another week to 10 days before I can get the OSS headlight installed.
