I'm not a big fan of the Vorsteiner front lip or the Vorsteiner rear diffusor. The color actually looks a little off on the front lip.

We can't vouch for the lip color or the rear section fitment, didn't install those parts.

Hey that's my car. I've been meaning to post up some pics but I have a few more goodies coming I wanted to get installed first.

AUTOcoture installed the ESS VT-1, StopTech's and Bilstein's. I picked up the car on 6/3 and have been getting thumbs up everywhere I go. On Sunday 6/5 I went to a meet called eurothon put on by car club THREE.8.WERKES. Half way through the show they asked me to "please move my car to the VIP section". They gave me 3rd Place in the BMW Class. Pretty good since I just went there to check out the other cars not trying to win anything.



As for the ESS kit and other work performed by AUTOcoture everything is exceptional. Very happy with the folks there and the outcome.

I don't understand why people spend all kinds of money building a car and slap on painted reflectors. Spend another 1% and have the bumper replaced, or .005% and have the original filled and painted. Otherwise, great build.

Maybe it's bc the lip is painted, but it seems as if there a gap between the center part of the lip (not the splitter sides) and the bumper...looks awkward, maybe it's just in pics tho - exhaust looks like it's hanging low too and with off fitment, but that's how every AA exhaust looks that I've seen (helped install my buddies and there's not much that can be done from an installers perspective) . Other than that, car came out great - love the headlights ! Great work ACM as usual !

Car looks sick, but the exhaust doesn't seem to fit right. Definitely needs to be adjusted.
