Like how the roof turned out and good call on painting the shark fin black and not covering up in carbon.

Love everything you've done so far, Kev. Looks aggressive yet classy. I'm going to be wrapping my roof as well, though I'll be doing a semi gloss black instead to blend in better with the glass moonroof. Love the look of the cf roof but the functionality of the moonroof. I think you've got the perfect blend.

Question; were the installer of the DiNoc not able to wrap your roof fin?

They offered to wrap the fin, but I decided to paint it Jet Black to match the side rails.

Ordered the Euro-spec leather seat covers today and a shop that would be interested in getting this done on my car. Looks like the driver side would be a direct swap. I'm not sure the passenger side needs reprogramming or not, but I'm hoping it won't need any.

Another side project that I might tackle soon is a Braille 21lb light-weight battery with a Macht Schnell aluminum mount.

Ahhh! My bad Whenever I see an IB M3 my mind automatically thinks "e90" b/c that is what I have ...

Kev, I experimented with lightweight batteries in the past. IMHO unless it's a track only car I wouldn't do it.. They die pretty quickly in the cold weather or in any conditions that are less than ideal and if you let your car sit for days at a time you will lose charge faster than a regular battery..

you will be trading reliability for a few lbs in savings.. I'd rather have my car start all the time and run all my electronics reliably.. dont let manufacturer specs fool you into thinking these lightweights are the same as a regular battery..

any updated on the oc3 and seats?

do you think the oc3 sensors will fit the perf seats based on contour and lining?

I ordered the seat covers, waiting for them to arrive from Germany.

The sensor is flexible enough to take whatever shape you want it to so I don't see a problem with that. I'm more concerned about whether the Performance seat can be opened up without damaging the seat cover. Being in NY, I think Ai Design should be equipped to deal with this type of project.

thanks for the info kev. you don't think the sensor has to be placed in a certain way ie, bends, etc for it to not pull off a code or anything? also is the actual sensor in the cushion itself in like a cut/hole?

lastly by "damaging the seat cover" you are speaking of the alcantara and restitching them?

No, the OC3 sensor is just a thin, flat, and flexible pad with an electronic module attached towards the back end. The pad is placed over the seat cushion and the module is embedded into the cushion via a cutout. I was able to make the necessary cuts on my own to incorporate the sensor padding into the Euro seat cover in a couple hours. A good upholstery shop should be able to incorporate that in any seat. Since I have not seen the Performance seats in real life, I can't tell how the seat bottom cover is attached to the seat.

My car at a recent meet:



This is right after I got the backup cam installed by Kris @ MMN

Still got some small projects that need to be squared away.

1. I finally received my Euro seat covers this week. Plan is to visit the shop next week Thursday on my day off to chat about the project.

2. The Di-Noc roof has a slight bubble issue that didn't go away with time in the driver side towards the end. Either the shop will have to fix it or redo it some time next week.

3. Finally have both sides of the OSS headlights ready to be tinted and then installed. This should happen next Friday morning.

4. Decided on a set of BBK and will get it at the end of the month

5. Also decided on the final exterior look (body kit + wheels) that I'm going for. Hope to get everything done by May / June.

6. will need to replace the front windshield and driver side shadowline trim eventually due to stone chips / scratches
