    I don't have any info about powder coated wheels. However I had one of my zhp wheels refinished recently due to curb rash. The cost was $125 OTD.

    11/9/2019 - New Rear Tires (Michelin Pilot Super Sport)
    12/31/2019 - Valvetronic Exhaust Remote Control (previously wired open but I wanted a quieter start up)
    1/10/2020 - Oil Change + Ignition Service (coils/plugs) I was getting a Cyl 7 misfire and it was close to the 60k service so I just replaced everything

    Misfire is resolved after new plugs/coils. Car is driving like a dream right now and I might entertain some mods now that it is all sorted.

    Mods I'm thinking about:
    - wheel powder coat (had a guy willing to trade but he has ghosted me)
    - front lip (RWCarbon)
    - headers with sport cats...not sure I need this but I do like the sound of headers especially after driving an e46 m3
    - rear diffuser (RWCarbon)
    - tune? Car is plenty fast so not really needed
    - KW HAS kit? not sure I want to go lower especially if the wife is driving the car from time to time

    Small update

    Purchased the following mods:
    - RWCarbon RKP style CF front lip 2x2 weave
    - BMW Performance CF spoiler 2x2 weave (the wife told me I needed something on the trunk so I went out and got it haha)

    Coming in the near future:
    - Will be purchasing spacers (12mm all around) and will be getting the wheels powder coated sometime this year unless I can find a person to trade. San Diego seems much less active on FB, CL, etc for car parts compared to Sacramento.
    - I've been discussing catless downpipes with cats in section 1 with Status Gruppe but I'm hesitant to go this route because if the cats are stamped they won't pass smog in CA and will likely be very expensive for a daily that I commute in. I might just go play with the backbox instead.

    I knew this would happen lol

    These are a couple of the spoiler just sitting on top of the old spoiler. The first photo is what the rkp style lip looks like

    Couple more photos testing the fitment of the front lip. Fitment is fantastic other than needing some holes drilled to support the lip. I thought it would have the stock holes already drilled but looks like I'll need to do that.

    The bottom weave photo is the rear spoiler. It also has a black top as an additional accent.

    After seeing the front lip fitment I think I'm going to purchase the center rear diffuser from RW Carbon as well. I want something subtle without replacing the whole diffuser.

    Sean, those carbon fiber parts really do look amazing on your car! (says the man with carbon fiber parts on his M3)

    Just got off the phone with Mike from StatusGruppe. Heading there in the morning to get the CF mounted and discuss an exhaust modification.
