congrats to gewow on his new car!

he just got his new baby (Le Mans Blue) and we started installing parts on it 2 hours after delivery!!

so far the mods on the list are:
matte blk grills
smoked reflectors
blacked out m3 badge
blacked out side grills

on another note, i just realised that the new m3s have skinnier wiper arms than my 08 m3... lol...

I must say that without Chris - I am useless @ installing mods!. But to be fair...we had to trim one of the reflectors, and the side gills took basically 1.5 hrs to remove...2011 fitment

will post more pics soon

What's left:
- AFE filter (may wait a while as the stock one is plenty breathable on newer airboxes)
- Angel iBrights
- CCW C10s coming in a few days
- Arkym matte black lip
- Akra Slip on with gloss black tips
- SS brake lines/fluid/pads (may also wait a while)

It was actually insane...From screw driver on the side, to pulling up and down, to pushing the fender, to using a pry tool, to using a pry tool on top and bottom, to using a pry tool top and bottom + flat head screw driver...

So well fitted it's like they were glued in.

I'm sure montreal_red will comment on that!

I'm sure montreal_red will comment on that!
So any tips? Or was it just that you have to use a lot of force?

the driver side came off relatively easy with some squeezing of the fender grill but the passenger side refused to come off no matter what we tried. in the end gewow used a flathead to pry the crap out of it until the chrome coating came right off. it was insane!!

We had to push in from the top with a pry tool, as well as push in from the bottom at the same time, all the while using a screw driver @ the edge. The chrome is completely stripped off @ that little corner, but who the heck cares.
