Re: CSL SGT Bumper adjustment advice? (paging daytonaviolet or anyone else)

Does the bottom plastic under tray line up with the holes on the bumper? Your bumper kinda sits tilted where the bottom part comes out too much. That might be why the top part hits your hood.

Re: Rear seats creaking under acceleration

Spoke too soon.. it's back. My only other guess now is that there's something funky going on with the hinges as the car doesn't creak when I first shut the seats closed.

Re: CSL Trunklid Pics

Trunk fits perfectly. STG diffuser.. not so much. The tabs are much shorter than the OEM diffuser.

Re: OE CSL Boot Lid - Group-Buy

Did you take the entire seal off or just that part. I was thinking of doing that but figured I should check first

Re: OE CSL Boot Lid - Group-Buy

Don't want to start a new thread for this, but my E92 lights won't clip in. I've tried everything. Any tips?

Re: BMW M3: The past, the present, the future

This picture is shot with a wide angle lens. The outside of the frame is distorted and stretched compared to the center. While the m4 is obviously bigger than the e46, the image exaggerates it....

Re: CSL bumper causing horn issues

A lot of people with replica bumpers don't install the piping to the intake.

I put my horn behind the aluminum bumper carrier (VCSL 1) so it's shielded from water. Don't recall how the STG one...

Haha no worries. I've been meaning to try this out and was wondering if an iPad backlight would be strong enough. Thanks!

Re: CSL bootlid license plate lights?

I came across this DIY for the e90 lights, pretty straight forward.

Re: CSL bootlid license plate lights?

Keep in mind the plugs/wires for the e39 lights and e90 lights are different. I learned that the hard way :)

Re: FEELER thread: CSL Front Bumper Group-Buy

Great to see another high quality replica being available at a reasonable price.

It's worth mentioning that some parts of your OEM bumper need to be taken off and glued to this bumper. You'd also...

WTB: Rear bumper cover with Park Assist (SF Bay Area)

As the title says, i'm looking for a rear bumper cover with park assist. I don't need the sensors just the cover itself.

Thanks.

Re: OE CSL Boot Lid - Group-Buy

Mine has a small chip in that exact same spot. Guess the packaging could use a little more cushioning there.

Re: is the stock e46 m3 really that fast?

What don't you like about the E90? I've never driven one to the limit, but street driving felt like a more solid version of an e46.

I think straight line speed in the e46 is pretty average....

Re: TESTED: Continental Tire ExtremeContact Sport

That's the first thing I noticed when I drove my friend's GT. Definitely a muscle car more than a sports car.

Re: Aftermarket / Relocated Windscreen Washer Bottle Setup

FYI the leak is commonly from the grommet and/or pump and not the tank itself.

Re: Making the E46 'feel' like a New Car... What have you done?

CSL front bumper made my car look so much newer for some reason. I guess because you don't see it often.

Keep the red interior for a few months and see if you still don't like it. The number of compliments you get might change your mind ;)

Re: VCSL Splitter Replacement

I bought karbonius replacements and had to trim the bumper a bit for them to fit snug. Weave looks perfect though.
