Looks great! I love the Fiskes!

I've been on the lookout for a set of the 17" Dinan Fiskes. Maybe someday!

I made a bit more progress. As someone mentioned before, the M3 badge on the trunk was in the wrong spot:

I remounted it according to the factory measurements:



It's better but it still looks a bit off to me. I have an eye doctor's appointment in a couple weeks so I may try again after I get my new prescription.

I ordered this paint to go my fog light deletes and my rear tow hook cover:



The spray pattern of the can, IMO, is pretty good and the paint laid down okay. This is before the clear coat:



The color match is okay considering how old the paint is on the bumper. Well, okay. It's good enough for a track car:



My Max Velocity Evo2 front lip came in and I got that mounted up. One of the main reasons I went with this lip is that I has an integrated under tray which my car was missing. It's kinda a bummer you can see the holes from where the original lip mounts to but I guess that's why it's a race car part. It doesn't look too bad once on the car:







And here it is all back together:





[/url]


I think the front lip balances out the rear wing aesthetically. The ride height is pretty low but I think I'll manage. The window tint is coming off this weekend. Then the focus will be just cleaning things up and getting the wear items replaced before taking it to the track. Roll center correcting front lower control arms and a bumpsteer kit are on the list to improve while replacing some of the wear items.

Do tell me about the roll centre correcting hardware. I am unfamiliar with it.

It basically corrects the geometry of the front steering/suspension due to the lowered ride height. I had this stuff on my E46 M3 and It really made a night and day difference.

Window tint has been removed. It looks a lot cleaner IMO.

awesome car! I love it because it's pretty much what I want to do to mine. Wish I had bought an Abrahams wing while they still had them.

Also those 18x9 Fikse are definitely one of the most beautiful rims around, one of my favorites for sure.

Thank you! LMs like yours are definitely on my short list of wheels I need to own one day.

I found this comment funny, as I've never wanted a beat up looking E36, even when I was young! LOL

Me too!! It's the only way I'd have it, especially for the street.
