A few minor mods......

New VS front lip. Put on two layers of 3M clear protection against road debris.... Also did the RD LED. As you can see waaayyy too dim. It is not even in direct sunlight. I left the David Bowie look on the car to see if the LEDs would grow on me...







Also changed the rear indicator bulkbs for the chromium ones to take the orange out. The bulbs are fairly bright in direct sunlight.

I still can't understand why so many are changing their angel eyes for ones that don't look half as bright.

Lip looks nice though!

You said you put 2 coats of 3M film? Where did you put these 2 coats on?

I am leaving the lights stock or go with hoen H8 bulbs.
I put the 2 coats on the lip. My installer covered the whole lip before I installed it on the car

very nice job. I wonder how that carbon fiber front lip would look on space-gray. I've been giving it some thought. Anyone have pic's of a space gray M3 with that lip?
