Lol me too. I know you as well as myself believe in doing things right the first time. I think this could've been avoided if that golden rule was followed.

That RTR piece is a bear. You have to cut up your bumper for it to work and then there are just big holes back there. You either have to put a mesh back there or spray paint black in there to hide what's in there. I'd recommend the carbon fiber license plate surround instead. Much nicer and can easily go back to stock later. The RTR piece, like most others, is there to stay lol

You can still go back to stock with the license plate surround. Same with the RTR decklid panel on a 13-14.

I bet it takes less than 1 hour start to finish including taking the bumper off and cutting to do this install. Rear bumper comes off in 5 min. Like DiEseven said, you can still go back to stock.

Well that's interesting. I've had it on order since October 1st and it still hasn't shipped.

From where did you order?

That's when I ordered mine. I ordered it from AM. Got like 17 confirmations on it last week and finally tracking last Friday. Keep your eyes peeled in your emails, and try contacting them.

Man I'm glad I got the plastic version. My "repaired" original sheet metal piece is rusting, again.

Ehhhh, not entirely. I think a lot of it was the way it was prepped, or not prepped I should say. I went to a body shop I've been dealing with for a decade, and they've now failed me on multiple occasions recently. They're done. Onto a smaller paint shop where I know the work will be done right...

Negative, I unbundled the thing for pic purposes. It was very well protected and in mint condition.

Lol I did just wake up too, worked a late shift the night before so that explains it lol. Should've honked at me. Nice, I raced my buddies brand new M3 and he had me by about a car and a half maybe before he decided to shut down (way early I might add, that's how he races). Not bad for a car less than half the cost....

I'm guessing these are the new turbo M3's? Yep these are very fast along with the new M4. They are actually making a lot more hp than what they are rated by BMW.

Yeah I think it's a V6 twin. BMW's are always bottled up. Especially those N54 motors. My buddies 135i MOVES with just bolt ons and an OTS map
