Car looks amazing!!! More pics ASAP!!!

On another note, can someone please explain to me why the ///M Logo is in a different direction on nearly every M Performance BBK that I see, haha. Some face inwards, some face outwards, some are different from left to right caliper...it drives me crazy

Thanks guys!

I have no idea why BMW does not pay attention to how the logos are placed. Probably just a huge oversight with the initial batch.

Very nice looking so far, Kimo! Can't wait to see the final result with those rims.. gotta be beautiful

What LED's did you use for your corners? And do they blink like they do in my car?


Btw don't forget, if you need some coding done, just let me know

Thanks! I definietly want to get some coding done. The led's don't throw any codes and they blink fine, I just don't like how dim they are. Went ahead and placed an order for the oem chrome bulbs that blink amber. They aren't led's but I know they will be bright.

Thanks for the compliments. I can't wait to see how the car will look either. I think I'm more excited to see the wheels than I was to see the car lol...

lol I know, they are not really that bright in the front, only the rear LED's that I have make some sense.. often I see people look at my blinkers and you can see them wonder what direction I'm going, even though I do have my blinkers on lol

Yeah, perhaps I should go back to the chrome bulbs as well, I still have mine lol, I'll see

I want to give a big shout out and thanks to svache for coming over this weekend to code the car. Didn't get to crazy with it as I only wanted a few options. They were:

1. DVD in motion
2. ASS memory (lol)
3. Auto fold in/out of exterior mirrors while locking/unlocking
4. Auto roll up of windows with door opened
5. Auto roll up of all windows through the keyfob
6. Tach on the hud was enabled though we don't know how to get it to show up yet.
7. Real time TPMS.

I also had my brother, who is a sound engineer, come over and setup the HK equalizer. He asked me how I like my sound and I told him to set it up how he would and I would train my ear to what good sound is supposed to be. He set it up for a sound that was 'true to the source.' He also made it so the bass adjustment could be increased as desired for added boom without 'distorting the curve.' He had this really cool program that sent out a white noise that has all frequencies at the same sound level with a microphone to tune it. It is the same stuff they use for tuning their live productions.

Anyways here are the settings for those interested:

I have the bass up one as my ears are still new to 'true' sound lol...
