Yeah, the move will be happening before the end of the year. Thanks for the kind words.

I have been wanting to do black door handles since I bought my car... I think I may go for it now and just buy new Jet Black to match the shadowline trim.

How did you do yours? And do you have comfort access?

When they do the wrap they remove the door handles. The door handles (originally Jerez black) were wrapped in a gloss black. I do have comfort access and it still works all around, the vinyl doesnt interefere at all which I thought was strange.

Hmmm... thats definitely another good idea... maybe you can try and pull that one off. I think it would actually look very nice. If I were to do it though, I would probably buy "fake" splitters and paint them as the OEM CF splitters are just too perfect to change. Maybe if I damage one, I can wrap them at that point.

If you're talking about the trunk spoiler, its BMW OEM.

I dont assume you are talking about the diffuser which is Challenge GT Race.

Yeah, i actually thought about doing that... but then I felt like "why have CF splitters if Im just going to cover up 75% of the CF?" So I kept it this way...

Fucking amazing... not only is the fit spot on, the hardware that you use to mount it is basically tied into the chassis (see EAS's install thread) so that shit isnt coming off. You drill into the oil cooler mounts and rivet the bracket onto the oil cooler mounts. If I ever take it off to sell it its gonna be a PITA to remove. It does require a small amount of modification to the underside of the bumper for just the crt lip alone but nothing major or that detracts from the value of the car.

Nice ride! Your on 15/12 spacers and looks pretty good. Most say 18/15 will work also so do you think it would fit here based on what you see? Also how do you like the ride with H&Rs on the ZCP?

I'm not sure how well 18/15 would work for the ZCPs, they are real tight with the ZCPs in the rear and under compression I'd probably rub. When I run my 20s I would definitely rub with 18/15. I'm sure others have done it and maybe some dont rub, but once the H&Rs set in the car sat a lot lower than stock. But that being said I'm happy with the 15/12, and I wouldnt justify the cost of the 18/15 just to gain an extra lil bit of stance.

Example: before H&R there was a ton of wheel gap, then H&R and the gap was minimized and I could use my jack without a problem, now that they have settled in I cant even get my jack under the car anymore without rolling onto 2x4s in front.

Oh... the ride quality is very nice with the H&R on the ZCP suspension package. I wasnt sure how much lower it would be and imho its the perfect drop for a daily. I would like to be a tad bit lower (or have the ability to adjust) but I know that would create problems.
