72 hours to getting my car!

Getting very excited as it's just under 72 hours to when I receive my car.

Got the following "mods" ready to install when it arrives. I use the word mod in a very loose term by the way.

Performance Spoiler


Performance Grill
Not sure of the M colours yet. They looked good when I saw the picture on the web. May get rid of the colours if they don't look good on the car


Philips Diamond Vision 5000K Fog Bulbs
To get a closer matchup to the Xenons


Philips Silvervision Indicator Bulbs
To remove the orange tint to remove fried egg effect


Richbrook Tax Disc Holder
(not really a mod I know, but looked nice


E-Net Cable
Again not a mod, but to code the car...


Roll on Tuesday!

I think you're right....

It looked good in the picture when I saw it on the web. After I bought them I put them on, it just didn't seem right...

Must agree, the grille is a No. The rest look good It's a shame you can't get smoked depo's for the F series, it was the first thing I changed on my E46 M3's.

Some guys on here have said that it would be nice if the car would start in Sport mode, rather than have to switch to it every time you start the car. Is this possible to program this so its always in Sport mode?

I haven't seen any disclaimers on mine so I assumed that was US only? But I don't have the surround pack so it might be on that.

I don't know. Hadn't seen this one. To be honest, if the default was Eco/comfort that's what I would like the car to be in unless I wanted to go into sports on purpose. Way to tempting. Lol

Ah. Hadn't realised it was a US thing only. Cool. One less option to code...

Loads on ebay mate, the original Richbrook ones are expensive. You can get replica ones for much less.

Must admit i do like the original Richbrook tax discs though - the twist off ones. Toyed with the blue but got a black one instead (better than a slight mis-match with the EBII). Usually about 18 from ebay, but you only buy one so worth it.

18.00 -My road tax is only 20 a year, feels a touch odd paying that for a holder Agree thought, they are very nice and provide a clean look.
