Yeah it's got a lot of black so it's a good contrast for white. But it looks okay with blue and red cars too. Now all I need is to fill the exhaust hole...

Switched my 435i ZHP to the daily now that I have a new weekend car!

Its a 997.2 GT3 with the last 1 of 3 Hans Mezger engines. 6 speed manual, the thing flies. Focusing on the 435i right now, though. Have some CF mirror caps from Dinan arriving tuesday, but want to start performance mods. Have the mppk but want something more aggressive. Any suggestions?

Drove back from Hershey sports arena after a concert last night.... removed the dead bugs from the front end then cleaned the Wife's car and put convertible. Oh and drank a couple beers! Happy Memorial Day weekend folks!

Hats off to all troops around the world

Please excuse the dirty car, needs a thorough wash!
I was waiting on those pictures. But they are kind of washed out. You might have been taking them into the sun from the reflection on the back window.

Maybe if you get a chance, I'd love to see how dark they look without the taillights on. Maybe with the sun on the taillights or on a cloudy day.

Thanks.

Depends on how far down the rabbit hole you wanna go...I’ve done a few things to mine if you want a few ideas (see my build thread below). IMHO bm3 by ProTuning Freaks is the best flash tune platform for overall “options” and quickest flash

Bad oil leak. Car began to start knocking badly whenever I started the car and try to drive so didn't want to take the risk of driving it in that manner. Called for a tow to Park Ave.

Was going to take it to BMW of Manhattan (cause it's closer to my house in North Jersey than the closest New Jersey BMW dealership) but no tow companies even BMW wanted to take the job of picking my car up due to "crossing state lines" smh.

Took it to Park Ave BMW they have no loaners until June 5th lol (give me a break) and since they were so backed up they won't look at my car until Tuesday. BMW of Manhattan for loaners want you to give them a $750 deposit (you can't use a AmEx lol) and when you bring the car back it gets reversed to you.

Thank god where I live and work is accessible by the subway and NJ transit so my car isn't a necessity it's actually a luxury. No loaners until June 5th to me is ridiculous.

Sorry man, that sucks. Good luck... hope it is a warranty item too. Haven't seen that issue in my area thankfully so far!

That's crazy....they should have free rentals available if it is under warranty

I've had my Lexus in for a few recalls and if they run out of loaners, which they often do, they get you in a decent rental....Ford does the same

I'd be on the phone with BMWNA demanding a car be delivered to my house.

I had the same issue and I towed it to my closest dealership. They said they had no loaners, they do not loan on Fridays and Saturdays, and that even if they had a car available they could not provide it to me because I didn't buy my car from their dealership. I had to waste money on a rental car for my 'free' warranty claim.

That's some terrible dealerships....recently bought my CPO in Arizona and was offered a loaner for a Saturday drop off for some tpms issue when I switched wheels by my local dealership here in So Cal.

Finally put on the headlight Laminex I ordered 4 months ago. It wasn't as bad as I thought although it does take a bit of practice the second light definitely look better than the first for small bubbles. But it passed the 3-5 foot away test for me, so all good. Less fading/yellowing hopefully!

PS: pleasantly surprised they included pieces for the sidemarkers, but they were no where close to fitting correctly.
