    Definitely. Like you, I would love for my ARC8s had more concave to them, but I wanted to have nothing to do with rolling fenders and other work associated with it. And yeah, forget buying an exhaust new, the performance-gain-to-cost ratio is slightly below lighting the cash equivalent on fire.

    For sure look into an SSK. I justified it by the knowledge that I shift hundreds of times a day, why not make one of the most tactile parts of the car feel just how I want it?

    Yeah, he was very nice. I think he's still interested in your front sway bar haha.

I got a parking ticket in NW and along with that was a front plate ticket. But that's pretty ticky tacky, and more of a "while I'm here" kind of citation. Surprised he didn't get me for my tint while he was at it. I honestly think it depends on the car, cops cut breaks for nicer cars. At least that's my opinion.
    Portland proper is really bad about front plate and parking violations. I got dinged twice for lack of a front plate, and their parking people are little tyrants with what power they do have. I just wish my front license plate bracket weren't drilled into the bumper

    I love my UUC SSK and DSSR... so short and precise. I've had it in my car for about 8 yrs now and it's still just as good as the day I installed it.

    I was really happy when I moved down here to SC and found out there is no front plate. I was lucky in that my car came with the OEM front license plate holder and it's a sedan...no screw holes in the front!

    I FINALLY installed the M3 mirrors I bought like a year ago, after sending them to Shawn to do the motor conversion like 6 months ago The passenger side install was a bit tricky, as it was the first one I did. Realized that I really didn't need to cut as much of the foam insert out, and the holes weren't drilled exact the first time, but I tossed on some bigger washers and ended up making it fit really nice. Driver's side went much smoother, until I realized that one of the mirror holes was either stripped or not threaded enough, so I had to tap it out and find a larger bolt, but it worked out great in the end. I also picked up some new glass from Khoalty which are the blind spot mirrors. At first I was a little suspect, but after driving it for a while they're actually really cool. The only thing is the magnification isn't like stock, so everything looks really far away. But they have a nice bluish tint and I did notice they also cut down on headlight glare. All in all I couldn't be happier, personally the car looks completely different to me, I love it.

    Nice! M3 mirrors look great on our cars, wish they came that way in the first place.

    Are they direct plug and play for coupes, or is modification involved?

    My understanding is we have the same type of motor plate fabrication as sedan guys, but for coupes the housings are a direct fitment. I bought some lexan to fab up the motors, I was just dragging ass ordering clear vinyl to wrap the mirrors (I painted mine myself—they look quite good, but I’m wrapping because I’m not so sure about the durability of rattle can paint).
