BTW, that gray looks so incredibly good, especially with FR...the perfect combo - so far the only color that has had me almost regretting getting AW.

Congrats!! The car looks great!

Loving the first pic, as I have a Silver Gray e46M3 and ordered a Space Gray e92M3 as well. Was nervous that I should have switched it up, but I could not be more content now.

@ lucid & Ep: my vessel is apparently untraceable, but due to hit the west coast on the 24th of this month. I have a vessel name and bill of lading but even after calls to the shipping company, no answers.

In addition to meeting up with Xcellere, I was able to meet the fleet manager, Ellen and the product specialist, Ernie who will both be helping with my courtesy delivery there at South Bay.

P.S. I am only gripping for a view of the FR interior, stunned to realize what a mistake it was that I couldn't change my interior color order from ext. PS in time...
It was great meeting you Mark. I'm glad you enjoyed the ride, even though I went easy on the car, you still got an idea of what it's capable of. It's scary how great this car is. I'm so impressed by it even after years of anticipation.

I think you'll love the E-FR. I saw it yesterday in person for the first time and it was stunning. I hated every pic I saw of it, but in person it's amazing. I regret not ordering it and now it's too late.

Wierd to see both of you after only knowing you by your avatars! Fox looks great in the one photo. I think I'm going to like it.

My detailing guy (John1c) prepped the car last night with a clay, polish and wax, and Premier finished the clear bra today + putting on matte black kidney grilles and removing the reflectors. The reflectors went into the body shop today to be painted Space Gray. Pics later this week of everything finished!

How hard was it to remove the reflectors? Perhaps you could write a little DIY for us to use as reference when we get our cars?

It was a fairly simple job, you just have to be really, really careful in taking them out. I'll definitely do a write-up soon.

Thanks bud!

Just curious, how much did the paint job for the reflectors cost you?

$50, not bad at all. That's what you'd pay Bimmian if you got new reflectors.

Any chance of spraying two sets of reflectors Space Grey? I wish I had time to send you another set of reflectors?

Only if you send me your reflectors. Being it's a new product they don't have them in stock.

I had someone from the dealership sit in the passenger seat while I took it out.

How did they do the clear bra - Pre cut kit or custom made? Little bit of both? Did they use venture?
