    Nice werk man! The yellow fogs look great on your car just as they do on my jet black. And great job on the fog light covers.

    I have a M3 dead pedal sitting around which I bought from slater. I hate yanking at the door sill to get this installed. The last time I did it to replace the cracked dead pedal, it was not fun. I also have OEM performance pedals which need installing. Too many parts sitting around - a good problem to have

    meh. i thought it was lacking pictures.







    not even half-joking aside, glad to see updates. love the ARC-8s. i think a 5-7mm spacer out back would really improve aesthetics. also excited to see how the CQuartz thing turns out.

    you haven't installed that yet?


    +1 on the fogs/covers - they look great, william.

    Thanks! Yeah, I don't enjoy anything that has to do with BMW's plastic. I do have the benefit of some free time this summer so I can knock these out relatively unburdened with things like a "job" or "responsibilities." You'll get to the dead pedal soon enough, I'm sure!

    I've thought about some spacers, but it's low on the list at the moment. I'll probably just wait around until someone sells their used set. What are the best brands? I know very little about spacers.

    Mileage: 56,103

    Installed a used M3 strut bar that I purchased from a guy over on E46Fanatics while I was still in DC. It's in great condition and even has all of the black caps for the longer nuts. Only noticeable damage to the strut bar is circular scratches caused by the four nuts on the bar itself, which I don't think is avoidable.

    Install was straightforward enough. I just followed Madrussian's guide (Link) and your guys' suggestion for order of nut installation (base plates first, then bar).

    Great werk!

    The GruppeM looks crappy in your engine bay - you should get rid of it ASAP at a ridiculously low price. Heck, I will even find you a buyer

    Sadly, you'll have to take a number! Three people have already inquired about the GruppeM and my BMW Performance intake whenever I decide which one I want to keep.

    Decided to quickly verify that the airbag I received in the recall wasn't a part of this secondary recall (brought to my attention by ZHPizza's post here):

    These are all white labels so it appears my airbag is A-OK

    Yeah, dude. Recall issued airbags are good. The secondary recall was to check cars that weren't originally part of the recall, but may have had the airbag replaced during regular [post accident?] service during the time that they were installing the yellow tagged claymores.

    Not that that helps you and the other neurotic mafiosos sleep any better. Y'all gotta check it out for yourselves, of course.
