Vorsteiner Splitters/Gloss Black Challenge Tips

I have a couple of new updates. I recently removed my Challenge exhaust and had the face of the mufflers ceramic coated (velvet black), and the tips powder coated gloss black. It looks really good against AW and the 3D rep diffuser which was also added. For the front I had iND do a custom paint scheme with a set of Vorsteiner splitters. As expected, iND did an amazing job with the paint. Nate and Ilia transformed the sketches I sent them into exactly what I wanted, and got them to me just in time for Bimmerfest.

Short term update on the BC Forged wheels - They seem to be worth every penny. The fit and finish is flawless. I removed them this past weekend to swissvax the entire barrel and there wasn't a chip anywhere to be found.

I finally had a chance to get some video of the challenge exhaust in action. I'll be posting the video up with a review in the engine/exhaust section in a few minutes.

Car looks awesome! I am digging the garage floor too....interested in flooring specs. I am in the process of building a new home and that floor would make a nice addition.

Very nice, love the paint scheme on the splitters! You need to get some painted reflectors though

Thanks. I bought it from another member on the forum. I believe it originated from vendor E92 Lighting but not 100% sure. The finish is great and the fitment was pretty good overall. It took a bit of tweaking to get it right and i'm sure the real version would not have fit that much better for triple the price.

Thanks. Not a fan of the painted reflectors because of the way they appear slapped on but I agree the orange isn't much better.

Thanks! The flooring is Racedeck. You can design the layout on there website and it will calculate the quantities needed. I did a black border with two tone on the inside to make a checkered flag. It installs easily by snapping together. You just need a table saw to make the cuts on the perimeter. Pics attached
