Thanks! Was great to finally have some time to do something, parts have been sitting in garage for months!

New wheels and tires sitting in garage also, need to get them mounted so I can install. Also sitting in garage are the front lip kit (matte black) and rear spoiler (color matched). Not sure I can install those two, how do people do the spoilers when you have to bend (push) into place and get the tape right first time, crazy.

Side note, what do other peeps do with parts they take off?

Are those OEM or replica? I went with replica.

I really want to do the keyhole mod but am a little scared based on what I've read so far about the latch falling out and being hard to put back together. I need to just sack up!

All OEM parts, I like perfect fitment

Keyhole cover was not bad, I did read about some people having issue with latch, but just don't touch the door handle when doing it Also, writeups all say use a torx bit, but mine was not a torx it was a hex bit..

Great choice for tires! Michelin Pilot Super Sports is what I run on my Porsche for years and it's the only brand that can keep up with endless torture. Never had an issue with them. Vredestein on the other hand... well..

Thank you!

Some things I would like to code would be,
  • disable ASS
  • kill warnings/disclaimers
  • m perf dash logo and startup animation
  • tire pressure readings
  • video in motion
  • cameras in motion
  • unlock doors when put in park, or ignition off
  • fold mirrors when parked, if possible
