Nice thread...

A bit post procedure, but upon delivery I switched out the grill and put in the car seats...

I have M performance floor mats and shift knob arriving. Also gonna code the car, hopefully this weekend.

Focusing on cosmetic stuff, until performance mods are sorted out

You can get them on eBay for like $10. They have snap on or vinyl.

Here you go

Wandkings Grille Stripe Decals for Kidney Grills - REFLECTIVE Colors (Dark Blue, Red, ... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0107WKYV0..._dh5jxb5ZZYCJN

This batch, like most, come in a variety of widths, and you need to trim down to fit. Not too hard, just requires some patience

Nice, I got 18% but it doesn't look any darker than that.

Did you do the wrap yourself? I'm wrapping my mirrors tonight. I already wrapped the rear reflectors myself without taking them off, and it looks flawless.

It la probably the angle just dark enough to see shadow and not get pulled over everyday!

I tried the mirror caps 3 times and couldn't get it. Had the tint ship do it for 25$

The reason I got it was because I liked the sound of the car for the first 30 seconds after start up. It's just right! I recommend at least trying it it's only 20$!

Interesting; I was gonna wait for the JB4 for the M2. I had one on my 335 and the Can Flap option basically did the same thing (I think). Sounded terrific.

But...for $20, maybe I'll just do it now

Isn't it just caps that go over the connectors so dirt and water doesn't get in? To test to see if you like it, just disconnect the connectors. If you like it, buy the caps.

I floored it on the highway and after kicking down it revved until 7200-7300 rpms before shifting. Is that right? LOL! I was in auto mode.
