Off hand I believe 12/10mm will double check for you - haven't gotten the car back just yet but we may need to make minor adjustments when the car is actually under load. As for a street setup the car only lightly rubs the fender liner at full lock!

Thanks man, i'm excited as well! just shot you a follow back on instagram

Oh wow if its 12/10 that'd be pretty aggressive with that setup!

Haha thanks! Gotta add all the clean M's to my insta

Got around to adding some interior touches after work! installed the pedal Haus aluminum pedals as well as some fresh oem floor mats - cleaned up nicely in my opinion.


For the pedals you will need:
-Electric drill with 11/64 bit + Phillips head bit
-Pliers of your choice or maybe a 9mm wrench to secure pedals to brake and clutch (correct me if I'm wrong)
-Something to catch the metal and plastic shavings, or just vacuum it lol.. in my case I was removing the old mats anyway so I didn't bother. just a heads up!
annnnd thats it, very straight forward. I will link the video I followed for this install. *in the updated version they only include enough hardware for 2 mounting points per clutch and brake.* the gas pedal gets 4 self tapping screws. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=vHktRo5x0pQ

Yes and thank you! Definitely want an M performance alcantara wheel but I can't justify the price just yet. The next place my money will go to is most likely exhaust/tune, part of me can't stand how quiet it is

Yeah true, it is fairly pricey but would definitely finish off that interior, maybe a good used one will come up!

Oh wow haha, you definitely need to get on that exhaust! The car is 10x more fun with an exhaust!

installed the metak diffuser last night, fitment is spot on! looks oem+

Tools/Supplies needed:
Micro fiber towel
Alcohol or your choice of cleaner to sterilize bumper (remove all dirt, grease, grime on bumper in prep for tape)
8mm ratchet or wrench
3m double sided tape

Re-use the 2 oem bumper screws for the metak, 3m tape opposing side and install!





I stuffed 2 micro fibers between the exhaust to compress the edges of the metak so the tape gets a chance to bond, I let it sit over night



Product:





For $150 you can't go wrong

Update: gonna try getting around to installing the POM front lip this weekend, most likely re-using old hardware + 3m double sided tape in the front + a rivet gun to really secure it down.

installed the front lip, I'll be honest the lips fitment and quality is off/saggy and inconsistent throughout maybe its because I didn't go with a traditional e9x spec'd lip.. regardless - not impressed.
I was going to take the front bumper off to mount it but either way the fitment just didn't line up so I didn't go crazy. went in with self tappers since the oem bolts wouldn't hold + 3m and called it a day since it'll get ripped off soon enough with the way roads are over here. In the future ill be going with a euro bumper anyway heres the results:

I'm not typically a fan of black everything as I like a little contrast wether its the wheels or grills. With that said somehow your pulls it off. Congrats and awesome build!
