Had the car in for some exterior goodies:
-M Tech II Front Spoiler
-Rear M Tech II Bumper
-///M Style Trunk Lip
-Painted Rear Diffuser and Moldings

My thoughts on the Replica MTechII front and rear:

This is a Replica M Tech II Front and Rear from one of our site sponsors. First off I'd like to say if you have the extra cash to shell out then go OEM. The body shop had a lot of trouble with fitment but they made it work. Also the fog lights that came with the bumper are cheap, garbage IMO. The second I started to rinse the car off they fogged up. I had to take them off and clean and seal it up myself. I was told when I purchased this bumper that everything needed to retrofit is included if its not already on the car. That wasn't true. As most of you know you will need new slides, ducts, and adapters for fogs. Overall for the money spent I am please. Everything turned out good. The process was just a PITA!

Next on the list is koni FSD shock with Eibach springs. The car is begging for a drop. Also would like to try something new for wheels.

Now for some pics:

You make me miss my M6 reps :( but the car looks great! I actually like the chrome window trim with the clears and polished looking rims.
Thank's a lot. I remember your car with the M6's. The only reason I haven't changed the trim was because i thought it flowed with the finish on the wheels.

what % tint you have in your front windshield?
30% on the windshield. 5% on the rest.

does quite look right with everything aggressive but the mirrors
Thanks bud. Your right about the mirrors. Im just waiting for something to come along..

Any closeups of the fitment? How are the gaps in the rear?
I will take some. The body shop did a very good job on the front. The rear on the other hand, one side is spot on and the right side isn't as flush. Sticks out a 1/4 inch.

This is all I have for now:

One other thing I noticed. It was a very tight squeez for the Rebar to fit in place causing two points, in the center just above the moldings on the rear, to come out a little. Not noticable but with the right lighting it makes it look as if there is a small dent
