Around 12' 8" but that's more than needed. I had the room so just put he opener in the standard position. People with less room use a "jackshaft" opener that is on the wall next to the top of the door.

I have the roof 4 or 5 inches below the opener and have 6'6" of headroom under the platform. I see people with lifts in much lower ceilings if you just park another low roof car under them. It's in my "3rd bay" where all the toys end up. I wanted to use the space under it as workspace at times and to keep the motorcycle, mowers and have the ATV/snowplow.

Last night I wrapped this interior trim piece with the vinyl CF. It looks so sick.. I was going to wait a bit to do the rest but I'm going to do it today. It wasn't too hard and turned out really well. It was the brushed al-u-minium which wasn't the worst option but never looked right. Better than the wood at least. I didn't take a before pic.



I put the BMS black exhaust tips and the small duckbill on last week, they also look great but it has been too salty to get a pic. The damn diffuser didn't fit..

Were you happy with the improvement from the intercooler?

I hooked up a trickle charger. Once it gets really cold, this really helps to protect the integrity of the battery.

Be Careful using it. Even though it is Foam, it will scratch the paint and grind the dirt into the paint.

Thanks- yes anything will, I don't know if it is worst than a brush? Certainly seems better...

This is actually the same tool that we used when I was a lot man / porter at Valley Cadillac. Can be used safely. Do not want to use with salt or road grime under snow. Meant to push snow off in big chunks / ice bergs not scrape. The snow just slides off a clean, waxed car. Not a bad tool to have in your arsenal if you are not parking in a garage.

I have the same snow brush as MSCD. It's great for light, powdery snow, doesn't really help if it's icy snow. And it won't scratch the paint (unless you try really hard).

I'm a big fan of the double-slat grilles.

I had them on my E90 and I have some on the way from Emnotek for my F32.

Which mirror cover did you go with?
