Looking very nice. Have you got any photos of the "DDM Interior LED Kit" in action?
+1

also, what brake kit / ECU you looking at and whereabouts are you in terms of tracks? I having a dilema at the moment about modding mine or buying something else (ranging from 996TT to Audi S8 v10 - think I'm in mid life crisis mode!!)

Not all in as yet but will attempt again the weekend and will post comparison pics as I half installed some lights and left old ones in to compare

- Got a set from Roy at CA Auto with 16 bulbs
- the mirror courtesy lights are in but look dim compared to std - but I think they are directional rather that omni like a normal bulb so will re-install them
-the central unit needed the plastic trim modded to get the peanut shaped bulb in then it didn't work - called Roy today and he made some suggestions so again will try the weekend

will update this post Andy-UK with pics

that MStyle fits like a glove - it is a hollow fibreglass type moulding so very light. Went to local B&Q (DIY store) and got some washers and bolts and helped mechanic drill holes and through it and front bumper in 4 places and it has been fine - but think I need another 2 bolts to give me a bit more confidence above 100mph as it does feel like the bumper is pulled down at speed (on a track of course):biggrin:

look for autoenhancegb as thats the Mstyle seller name on ebay...exactly the same one as the MStyle store..in fact I bought mine on the phone and they bascially answered as Mstyle and then asked what the price on ebay was as they didnt know.


Also - the dyno did not work as I had an issue where it would not rev past 2nd gear - I now know this is a known problem as the ABS sensor kicks in and you have to disable it...anyway no dyno yet but will try the dynapack again soon when I figure out how to disable ABS on the E60.

Cheers guys - this is an old thread!

Grilles and badges are currently back to chrome and have 167M alloys.

These 166M's are now being painted silver again.

We shall see once I get them - probably change my mind!
