first thing first! had to get the window tint living in palm springs the heat is crazy. I ended up doing 15% on all 5 windows and did my windshield 35% .

Got my mtech 2 style front bumper sprayed.It laid out very well ,the material I use is strictly PPG products .Started off with bare plastic,adhesion promoter,primer,color,& to top it off quality clear coat


M3 mirrors painted silver grey



Test fitting of the mtech 2 rear . It fit very well for being a aftermarket bumper.


The only thing was my car came with PDC from the factory and the aftermarket bumper didn't have the holes pre cut.
So I had to modify it my self..


Had to hole saw it out and do some precise sanding ..didn't want to sand more then would I had to so I took my time .



Freshly sprayed..

To be honest I totally forgot what degree I put the oven on. I believe u can put it on 100 and give it prob 5-10 minutes , make sure u have gloves on cause the head light does get hot , also don't be afraid o"f burning" the light . The light. Is strong and can take that degrees for a period of time. Also u may need a couple flat heads or prying tools and just start to work the lens out with your pry tools and sure enough it will come right apart.also when I put lens back on I pre heated the actualheadlight it's selfand then took it out and pushed the lens bacon and threw the complete headlight back in the oven ,pulled the light out one more time and pushed the lens together some more and made sure all the tabs were sitting in place,& u should be good to go. The glue that is on the light will do, no need for adding more glue.my lights sealed up nicely ,waterproof.hope this helps u
Hey, how hard was it to tint your tailights?
Not very hard to tint them when u have the Right tools. I willer commend to take them to a paint shop to get them done professionaly ,they have all the proper tools for that kind of job .they were tinted with automotive clear coat. I'm sure they shouldn't charge more then 100$
Sorry for the dumb question, what are the holes in the rear bumper for?
The reasoning for the holes are for the parking distance control .maybe these pics will give u a better idea

So a while back I purchased H&R race springs (red) and bilstien heavy duty shocks and let me tell u ,the ride quality was excellent . I could take corners very nicely ,wasn't too stiff or too soft. I recommend these for some one who wants a subtle drop but with great performance.

Here's a pic of my car with the wheels /suspension/mtech kit/hamann lip all installed..
