Good from afar, but far from good. I'll get the Seibon some time in the future.

As for the hood struts, I have no issues using the stock struts and closing the hood.

Yes, my head lights are tinted. The body shop painted them for me.

I'll get better pics once I get my new calipers and springs on this weekend.
Is that the GoodGo brand bumper?

My only concern was for the open air intake. The top half was getting waterlogged and causing some airflow issues. Got a K&N Drycharger Filter Wrap and haven't had any problems since.

Also, I looked back on the thread at my old posts and I can't understand what I was thinking with that bumper. Be aware that it's long gone, and this is what my front end looks like now:

IMO that looks better than the replica m4 bumper with that style of hood.

LOL your F30 looked more like an F80 than my F80! Honestly I thought it looked good, but this is great too!
