These have either got a 6" lip, or the camera creates an optical illusion..

They've been on. Style 19s arent done, haven't started working on them.

The front lip is probably 2-3 inches off the ground. I had it parked on the dip like that because the m42 radiator started leaking so I wanted it to leak in the grass and not the street. It was getting dark and I wanted a picture so I just took one while it was there.

Steve always trying to one up everyone, you does not ownz it anymoar.

So I bought a 77C thermostat to help with running hot, and I am not running a fan to cool my radiator/motor (A/C fan won't turn on for some reason :shrug and I haven't seen it go passed half. On the way to and from work it didn't go passed this mark:


Just realized, you can see my truck.

How does $200 sound for a genuine Hartge rear deck spoiler? The guy I bought my IE springs from has one for sale, and he'll ship it to me from Puerto Rico for $200 total..

I dont need another car though, so that $200 would otherwise be spent on cheap hookers, blow, and possibly a year long subscription to some obscure pornography site...

That would be a good deal if that's what you were after. Hartge kits are rare. I was going to get a hartge or acs kit for mine untill the tech2 came up for cheap

I like the spoilers a lot, just wondering if it would look out of place on my otherwise stock-ish looking 325i

Also, what are the stock 14" weaves made out of? I got a huge ding in my rim, I want my friend to tack weld it so I can paint over it..

Cool, I'll def try that! What color are those? I'm trying to decide whether or not to keep mine silver, or go with silver lip/gold center, or silver lip/grey center

I've already got the paint, so if I really dislike my first choice I can always do it again.
