Hey strongpose,

the hood is almost done being made, I should have the first one out next week I believe. Do you want me to photoshop it for you?
Another member in Vegas with a sepang bronze M5 will be running this hood and bumper so maybe you can check his out for reference too

JME

Does anyone have photos of this hood on a black M5? Curious if the vents will stand out as much as one would hope they do.

That sounds good! I REALLY like the looks of the hood and will most likely end up purchasing one, but before doing so.. I'd like to see what it looks like on a black car first.

Saw the first pre-production hood on friday, hopefully getting test fit today I'll post some pics up tonight if so
I also either need to get brackets to test fit the bumper or whoever is in the LA and wants to get the bumper I will take care of install $

Any update?

John can the stock bumper fit in the back seat of the car or even partially into the trunk, I think both my seats fold down. I wanted to see if I could drive down and get the rear bumper fitted while I was there and then drive back with the oem in the back.

Hey Paul,
I'll get back to you tonight. I'm pretty sure you could make it fit in the car somehow :)

Fine tuning the bumper this week. I wasn't satisfied with the fitment and weight. Production should start next week I believe.

Paul you paid months ago, you will be the first to have it.
What kind of person would I be without principles? You're the first that came so you're the first to be served :)

My apologies, bumper is pushed back a week. It should start being produced the end of next week or the week of the 16th.

The hood is being finalized (comparing it with OEM hood for fitment) so middle of next week it should start being made.

so whats the update on these?
