Did you do

1) door arm rest

4) rest of door panel (essentially full door panel) in leather?
Door armrest and panel inserts. Don't have pics of it unfortunately.

It felt similar with a slightly but bites quicker under load, it does squeel a lot and brake dust was a lot worse compared to stock.
Haha I already put m p brake on my car over 5000km. I have read an official document claiming coding is required to activate sport brake. Mine bites softer than stock brake initially, maybe not coded yet. Will check and code if necessary.

I remember hearing Giorgio said you installed it the same time as him. It will require coding based on what is performed at the dealer, not that it makes much difference according to some.

Hey knightsabers,

Great thread. I may have missed this, but how did you get the M-performance front lip in glossy sapphire black? Did you paint it yourself?

The front lip on BMW's website looks matte black.

Thanks

Thanks I miss that car, shouldn't have sold it.

Haven't been back on the forum for a long time. I upgraded to an Audi R8 V10 Spyder a few years ago.

I'll post some pics below.

Yes, I had the paint shop paint the lip in gloss black to match the bumper.
