Not to put a negative spin on your ride, cause it's drop dead gorgeous, but is that a BMW dealership ad in the back? It's not too noticeable, but I don't understand why they do that...

Yeah those pics were taken before i took it off. I was worried about leaving marks so I asked the dealer to remove it and they literally refused. one of many reasons I will never set foot on their lot again. Sucks because they are only a mile from my office and it would have been really nice to just drop the car off when needed. At least the dealer closer to home has virtually unlimited loaners so not that big a deal.

Sorry to hear about the hassle, but glad you got it off. Did you order it, or take it from dealer stock (guessing you ordered it)? If they did that on a custom order - pissed would be an understatement, tacky doesn't begin to describe putting those tramp stamps on luxury cars. Should I move back to the BA, I will be sure to avoid those a**holes.

See page 2 of this post for pics without ClearBra.



BTW - if weather gets better, will be giving her a full detail this weekend and hopefully a better photo shoot.
It looks OK, but I prefer the mate look personally.

Thanks - I think I agree with you and will probably end up removing the ClearBra from just the splitter. I had them installed with separate pieces so its easy to remove.

I think it looks great with the gloss, especially because you painted part of your rear diffuser too, very very nice!

I always liked the front splitter but thought the side splitters looked ugly so i just ordered them without the side skirts, but then i wondered if it would make the car look unbalanced. now that i've seen what a car with the same setup looks like all my worries are over

Looks awesome! Do you have spacers in the pics with your OEM 403M wheels?

Thanks - OEM wheels are stock without spacers. Was originally going to go with spacers F:12mm/R:15mm, but then saw CH-Rs on other cars posted here and just had to get them.

Not meant to blast you but I wish people would first spell out the acronym before using an acronym for the first time in a document.

What is an "RFT"?

Amazing

Your car is just amazing!!
But I hesitate between BBS's and the 403M! I love the BBS, I also thought to mount the same ones but in tittan on my Alpinweiss, but the 403M's are really superb, pity they are 8.5! The 403M in 9.5 ET40 would be really top (for me)! Congratulations, one of the best F30, ever seen...

Thanks - I really liked the 403m but wanted something more aggressive to complete the look. Thought of spacers but then had to lose RFTs.

Car will be complete after brakes and maybe mppk (M performance power kit )
