Hey Chipz,

Can't wait to see how it looks in person bro!

Also, I'm about to purchase the ///M Suspension and ///M Brakes can you PM a ballpark $$ of how much the suspension install runs you?

BTW Hope it's at least a 2000 grit and not 20!

The fact that she let you buy/lease a BMW and modify it with 4 kids is REALLY the thing...

it'd be even cooler if she let you take a few pics ...or better yet, maybe she can take them she doesn't sound too busy working 12 hours. What's a few extra snaps gonna take.

M performance color matched with a section blacked out on the underside to give some depth.

Your pictures couldn't come at a better time, I decided to pull the trigger on the M Performance Spoiler and was nervous about the MG and CF combo...glad we could help.

Driving the loaner this weekend (328i Loaner) has been torture...so floaty and comfortable.

So sorry - big thanks to the chipzter. Didn't realize that he was the one that suggested looking at WebETK site and helped get james and shiv going.

For those out there looking to do this, be aware that springs are not included in kit because they are different part #s depending on several factors. The biggest being:

- 328 vs 335
- Auto or Manual tranny
- Package/options

My guess is total vehicle weight plays a role here.
