Hopefully going to do the m-sport + lip conversion within the month. I want to know how hard it is to install the lip...if it is going to have the shop do it.
Thanks! No I did not install it, that was just some pics with it slid over the bumper. Wanted to see how it will look.

For the kit I went with a combination of estoril blue and gloss black. The goal was to match the kit to the trims; the kidneys and window surrounds. That way everything would flow and look like one unit instead of just parts bolted on.

They are oem stealth bulbs. Part # 63 21 7 160 897. You will need to order two as they are sold individually.

Teaser pics. Keep in mind the front lip is not installed, I just had to see what it was going to look like.















Looks great, I was thinking of doing the opposite color scheme on the front: gloss black splitters and body color lower lip. Your setup looks good too, looking forward to seeing full shots of the finished product.

Thanks! Can't wait to see you paint scheme as I am curious as to how that will look.

The only hesitation I had was doing the diffuser. I thought about painting it like the csl diffusers on e46 M3's, but took a risk and went all gloss black. Pick the car up today in 6 hours so we'll see if it was a good call or not...

Mod update:

First the bad news. The shop still doesn't have the front lip installed so there will be no fancy pics in this post.

Had to pick up the car yesterday anyways though as my friend offered to due the brake lines. So all in all it was still a productive afternoon. The brake lines were installed, the exhaust tips realigned, the injen intake was installed, and the jb stage 1 was hooked up. Car is fast now and I can't wait for it to adapt more.

I want to mention the intake because that was the most surprising to me. I did not expect it to be such a quality piece of kit. For comparison I'm basing this off of an afe stage 1 I had for a brief time on the e46 M3. The wrinkle black coating was nice and even and the pipe was solid. The heatsheild was well thought out to me, had gaskets for the top to seal the hood, pipe insert, and even the bottom to seal with the bracket. Mounting hardware was few and logical. Plus there were instructions, which is always nice. Power wise there is no way I'm going to notice since the stage 1 was hooked up as well. Sound wise the intake is definitely worth it, especially if you can get it for a good price. You can hear the spooling and blow off valve now. The car sounds like it has a turbo now. Since the exhaust I could already here the spooling and now it's even more amplified. The car with the valve full open on the exhaust sounds amazing now. I am going to have to get it on video for you guys soon. I'm really starting to like the car now to the point where I might just keep it after lease end. The only thing left that it really needs is a proper suspension setup and a limited slip diff. We'll see...

Will take a pic or two of the intake when I get home as I didn't take any pics during the brake lines and intake install.

Here are horrible pics of the kit minus the front. I was too frustrated to bother with pics since the kit wasn't finished. The car will be in the Wekfest show this Sunday so should get some good pics out of that.

Rear diffuser and reflectors gloss black with estoril trunk spoiler:



Close up of diffuser and meisterschaft tips:





The worst pic possible of the gloss black side skirts:



Trunk spoiler:

It's definitely a tough decision. I should have some front pics in a few days or so to further confuse you.

Not that I know of yet. I'm sure the aftermarket is working on something though.

Not at all. They are perfect, just hard to capture with bad photography since they look like negative space. Here is two blurry pics I didn't post above. Warning they are blurry...



Here is one where I tried to show just how little they stick out:
