I think they're blanking out the license plates to limit any legal liability in the event that someone finds me based on the euro license plate. Hopefully we don't have too many nutjobs on these boards.

About the spacers, the spacers will be from 10-12 in the rear, and from 15-18 in the front. From what I understand this is the conventional knowledge on how to space ZCP M3's. Either way, we'll try out a few different set ups at EAS before coming to a final decision. Ultimately, I'm looking to have the wheels sit perfectly flush with the fenders.

I'm looking at the CF diffuser you have as well as Akra exhaust. Sharp looking, and sounding combo

Thanks man. Please be mindful though, the video's you've seen of the exhaust note on that car, are of the X-PIPE only, the muffler's are removed. We took that video just for fun halfway through the install. The actual exhaust note, with the mufflers on, is different... not as harsh. Hope that helps.

Looking good...nice set of mods. I should be getting my full Akra exhaust soon, but I went with the Arkym diffuser. Regardless of which diffuser you go with, those tips sure fill out the back end nicely
