you see the thing is eveyone know that Crown Vics are cop cars so they tend to switch it up in Brownsville Brookly (the neighborhood I grew up) in an attempt to blend it. But we know who they are lol.

Let me know when you're ready to pull the trigger on this. Maybe we can get better pricing if we buy together. I'm looking at getting the AC-S Front lip/Rear window panel and the trunk spoiler. I'm in no rush.

Based on Db's suggestion I did a search for WALD. Here's their page for comparison to the AC-S front lip.

Here's a good post on the plate delete:

http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...ghlight=delete

The eBay seller I bought mine from was something along the lines of "bmwnorthscotsdale" but it's been so long I can't remember.

Installation is simple. Just follow the first few steps on the angel eyes diy in the diy section. Note the two outer trim pieces do not need to be fully removed; only popped out to allow the middle piece to come out.
