LUX V3 Angel Eyes installed. Special thanks to [email protected] :D

Here you can see how little working space we have due to the MASSIVE heat sinks of the LUX units.

We were very impressed with the light output of these units.

The outer ring is extremely bright compared to some of the other units we've come across.

From the correct angles, they seem to be just as bright if not brighter than the inner ring! Hands down, these units are the best of the best.

Stay tuned Gents, next few days will be very hectic.

I love the way you did this picture. It really shows you the difference between the stock and aftermarket choice in 1 image. This allows you to clearly judge the change in brightness and color. Far too many only show the aftermarket, or in separate pictures, so there is no frame of reference.

Great job!

Wheels/Tires came in. We ended up going with Michelin Pilot Super Sports instead of the ADVAN AD08s we originally planned on due to availability.

Here's some weight information of the Forgestar F14s in Gunmetal Finish.

19x9 ET20

19x11 ET32

Unfortunately we were not that impressed with the results. As such, we just put in an order on a set of BBS FI. Hopefully, they will be ready by BimmerFest. We'll use these F14s in the mean-time.

Akrapovic EVO installed along with a gloss black PWC ARKYM rear diffuser on our Project MR E92 M3. :D

Unfortunately the ARKYM diffuser does not fit properly with the VRS undertray so we just put in an order for the VRS diffuser...

More updates soon.....moving onto the interior next.

I'll tell you guys don't hang around! Excellent progress has been made in a short space of time.

Any chance of a video so we can hear that exhaust?
+1 on both! Lots done in a short time
