Thanks guys!!

I got it back today with the new bumper installed.. and the body shop said that they couldn't repair my factory CF splitters.. So I guess it's time to put new ones on and be realllllly careful.

Another option would be to just paint the CF Splitters body color, but I think that the CF gives it a bit more character without standing out too much.

What do you guys think? CF Splitters or the Mode CF Lip? I'm really torn between the two.

Although I have the splitters on my car, I would say go for the Mode CF lip. It flows so nicely with the front bumper.

Looks great Mike! If you don't go with the cf splitters then the mode carbon lip would look great on your car. I went with the splitters myself for these European roads and parking garages.

Car looks great Mike... especially with the BBS wheels. My CF splitters have rock chips on them too. If I get another set i'd have them wrapped in clear bra to prevent it from happening again. DO NOT paint them!

Is that a BMW performance steering wheel? Would love to pick that up if you have the specifics.

And why the P3 gauge if no FI?

Gorgeous car!

Yes, it's the BMW Perf Steering wheel v2, blue stripe. I also opted for the lower alcantara cover.

I have the P3 gauge there to monitor ignition timing advance, exhaust gas temperature, and coolant temperature.

Thanks everyone - more photoshoots are coming soon. Felix - we'll set that up soon.

how are you montioring EGTs? Factory DME or an actual probe in the header? I would prefer an actual dedicated probe then trust the computer (if used for tuning) not just monitoring

oh and looks good; BBS are nicer than the Vorsteiner; ditch those wheels put the $$ elsewhere and rock the Lms

Your car looks great Mike! I am partial to the BBS wheels but I also really like the Vorstenier wheels....... The style really complements the E90!!!

PSS. He just got a fresh set so he'll have to chime in as to whether he kept the same sizes as before.
