Nope, no build thread. I've done the suspension, cooling system, wheels, and lots of other maintenance, but it was an exceptionally clean car when I bought it. In fact, it had what I believe were the original wiper blades from 1998 on it when I got it (they were dried out to oblivion and had German writing on them). The two previous owners must've only used it as a fair weather car.

Where does everyone find these Non-M lips? Or are they just random rig-ups from home depot or Lowe's? I'm trying to add a little spice to my front bumper but I don't want people to think I have a M. I'm all about my car but I don't need to lie about the engine. I've been considering aftermarket non oem style bumpers but none seem to stand out. I almost want to buy a M style bumper and paint it. Nothing matches the car better. Then again I can see myself tearing that low M bumper off in no time.

This. It's actually pavement edging from Home Depot.
