So I know many have posted pics of their sideskirt diffusers, but since I just washed the beast this afternoon, thought I'd share a pic of them installed on a Silverstone II lowered w/ wheels to give fellow Silverstone owners a better idea of what it looks like. Plus it was so clean finally I could not resist :7:

The black contrast with silver looks good, subtle, and more aggressive at the same time. Install was a cinch, Chris's instructions were simple, and hardware provided was quallity. Did it by myself in about 2 hours.

Enjoy!

I like what you've done with the Hamann splitter, and you're sitting just perfect on those 20s.

I would know how good those skirt extensions look, I started it :blink:

Bravo on the car :M5thumbs:
Thanks John, appreciate the comments, esp given the creativity and style you've brought to modding Gunther - one of a kind! Also, one of my favorites on this board for sure. Was debating going up to 21, but am hesitant unless I decide to join the widebody club - prob won't and just go more performance mods here on out. Cheers :)



Very nice, they do look good on these cars :M5thumbs:
Agree, it does look good on matte blue too I hear, I might have seen that some where :) :M5thumbs:

Of course! You've taken time with your car and I respect that :) I think if you re-barreled these to 21s (step lip) that would set the car off like crazy, and LCI headlights. Just my food for thought ;) happy modding and enjoy the car!

Nooo...too...many...new...ideas!!! haha Don't get me started on the wheels, I've changed my mind 100x on keeping/selling, re-barreling, etc. Love step lip look though.

Yeah, the headlights look tired, needs a refresh sure. We'll see, have some time before Bfest and Mfest. Maybe I'll jump on an EA hood too :1:

This is the scary part, but so far modding her has been fun and hope it stays that way as I get more into it. I'll just have to try to stay away from you ACG, esp. when I just live right around the corner from ESS here, wouldn't want to get any funny ideas. :haha2:

There is so much more you can do :hihi:

I'd be happy to, of course as long as you give me a ride in it after she's done. hehe

You can source them a few different places. I got in on a groupbuy from fellow board member umimchris. Do a search and you'll find many threads on it for more info.

Looks really good bro. The gloss effect really helps it stand out.

Btw, how's that rear diffuser fitment? I've been on the fence with it since it looks like I'll have to do some modifications to get my oval tips to clear.

Looks good. Its hard to keep modding.....

I find I'm often asking myself if I want to vacation or mod the Beast, needless to say I'm rather pale right now :p

Thanks Benjo, I am digging the gloss black look. The rear diffuser initially had some fitment issues. My bodyshop had to really finesse it to fit tight against the bumper curves as the diffuser itself was not perfect. Right now there are no gaps and it looks good, but they had to use a very adhesive glue. Oval tips should be able to clear, i'll measure it and let you know how wide they are.



Looks great man! Were can I get that rear diffusor?
Purchased off a fellow m5board member, but have seen similar ones floating around on eBay.
