i did mine to match my diffuser. I liked how it created a nice dip down of the body color and the style line above the reflectors created a perfect separation point from the diffuser to the bumper similar to what they are doing with the g series cars.

Interesting...I might see if I can photoshop it, but I may be leaning to CF.

Looks good...I will probably do it..I do like how it gives a distinctive cut on the bumper.

Looks great! Alot more aggressive vs. M performance.

IMO I like the lenses stock. I think when they are color wrapped / painted (either bumper or to match the diffuser) it looks odd with the extra lines. Maybe if it was blended into the rear diffuser and than painted to match...though seems like alot of work.

Either way, good work finding that piece and I agree its going to look even better with quad tips.

that diffuser looks great! not as aggressive as it looks on their website, but fits the back end nicely without over doing it. how much did that piece run you?

I don't mind the red, but I do like wdeerfield with the black and the way the lines are offset. The work isn't that bad...just have to be without the red markers for a week or so.

With how bad drivers are here though, the red markers may be necessary for people to see me! haha

Yeah, I am looking at quad tips now. I need to measure the opening and find some that will fit.

Thanks...Yeah not as aggressive as the mfg website picture. I wish the fins were more pronounced...but overall I am very happy with it.

I will PM you...

That CF sure looks good. Sometimes I wish there was a CF with EB2 trim. I guess I dont mind the blue and silver hexagon that I have.

Thanks...There are some CF's out there that have a blue thread in them. With all the blue accents I have inside the car, I thought it would be too much to do the blue CF as well. This is a picture of blue reflections CF though...

I am thinking of redoing my mirror covers in it.

Thanks..I think the stitching really sets it off. I love the stitching...that is the last thing I need to finish on the interior...the 2 front seats. I just have not been motivated in this heat and rain to take them out to do them. It isn't hard, just time consuming.

I recommend doing the center stitches and "U" stitch at the top of the seat too. The M2 has the "U" and it looks great.

Since the "U" has different connection than the other stitching I threaded black thread through it and then went around that with the blue thread twice per partition to try to get the same pitch/spacing as the other stitches.
