Progress Update. Suggestions Invited.

Okay here's a running tally of what's been installed and what remains to be installed:

Installed

- Akrapovic Evolution Titanium Exhaust System for e9x M3, complete with 100cpi catalytic converters
- Akrapovic Delete-R
- Challenge GT Carbon Rear Diffuser
- Macht Schnell S65B40 M3 High Performance Air Filter
- Macht Schnell M3 S65 Performance Underdrive Pulleys
- IND Gloss Black Kidney Grilles
- IND Gloss Black Fender Gilles
- AngeliBright v3.0 10W LED Angel Eye upgrade

To be installed

- Vorsteiner CSL style Bootlid Trunk - Dakar Yellow
- BMW Individual Piano Black trim
- Satin Black Powder Coated ZCP's
- Macht Schnell Spacers
- M stitched DCT boot
- IND matching keyhole cover
- Euro Front Bumper
- Front PDC retrofit
- Front lip in Gloss Black (TBD)
- a slew of coding goodies
- and software maybe ??


Your Feedback Please
Hey Guys, Need some feedback please. Should I....
  1. Paint my Akrapovic Exhaust tips Gloss Black and leave my Challenge diffuser in Carbon Fiber?
  2. Leave my Akrapovic Exhaust tips as Titanium and paint my Challenge diffuser in Gloss Black? OR
  3. Paint both the Akrapovic Exhaust tips AND my Challenge Diffuser Gloss Black
  4. Leave both the Exhaust tips and diffuser "as is".

Also, looking for suggestions on a good front lip - thinking Revinora or Luma (gloss black). I invite everyone's thoughts. (I'm also considering a full front bumper like RD Sport Corsa or Stradale - but by doing that I'm sacrificing my Front PDC retrofit on my planned Euro Front Bumper)

Oh wow....again!!! About your question brother, as much as I love the look of the Titanium tips, if you're looking for symmetry front to back, the tips could go gloss black and leave the rear diffuser as is; option 1. But the symmetry idea would tend to imply a cf front diffuser which I didn't see in your specs.

Either way...end result is still a knockout but if I were going to do this with mine, I'd keep it consistant. Just my thoughts.

And did I say "wow"???

I'm leaning between exactly those two options right now. If i do end up going gloss black on the tips though, I think that would introduce more than enough symmetry to tie in with the gloss black front piece. I think i need to see a few photoshops.

To be honest though, I have been considering going with the RD sport stradale (street) full front bumper (and doing a custom front PDC retrofit on that). If i do that, I won't be able to drop on a lip of any sort - and thus no gloss black up front. Unless someone here knows people who could create a custom front lip that would fit the RDsport piece ? (haha. wishful thinking)

Looking great and stay on track with your mods...don't stray too much on what you like. with that said I would leave the rear alone with #4 choice and I think the RD front would look mint or go witht he challenge front the match your rear diffuser and have the splitters painted gloss black OR get the CF one and leave them CF to match the diffuser thus keeping your continuity...DO WHAT YOU WANT because so far...honestly? it is looking DAMN GOOD!!!

Modification #9 & 10 - GTS wheels (ZCP powder coated satin) & spacers

Had EAS powdercoat the ZCP wheels a satin black to a la GTS wheel. What do you guys think?

EDIT - forgot to mention that we settled on 15 / 12 Macht Schnell spacers to offset.
