Nick - Good job supervising the installation of that OCC

The M3 control arm complete kit is $2 cheaper from HP autowerks and it is a great upgrade. I don't personally know what ECS tuning customer service is like but I know Harold from HPA is excellent. If anyone orders that kit and needs some long distance advice on the install PM me.
Thanks Justin. Just trying to "Export my knowledge to others"

ECS is very good with their customer service. I've bought stuff from them before and it got here pretty quick

Oh my....

Can I ask, why do that instead of just swapping the 1M fenders on?

Any plans to do the same with the rear?

Not a fan of how low it is, but im guessing you dont drive around like that? What are the wheel and tire plans? Rear plans?

You can see a list of car shows here...

http://www.facebook.com/groups/360329276687/events/


Last year some of the Street Culture guys started to hold night car shows on Saturdays in Schweinfurt (SW). One show I went too - there had to be at least 2K cars there. I liked it a lot better bc there was very little coips (the Nurnberg show is out of control) and there was PLENTY of space to see the cars. Everything in one parking lot.

German car show: XXXL Lutz Schweinfurt...
http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showt...php?p=12726632




Nurnberg XXXL Street Culture car show: April 19th, 2013.
http://www.streetculture.de/include.php?path=start



On May 1st there is also a car show in Dettelbach where the IMAX is. Near where the A3 and A7 Autobahns cross.
http://www.facebook.com/events/455366604510358/


And on May 12th in Marktheidenfeld (near Wurzburg off the A3)there is a nice BMW only car show...

Isn't on 12 May the Welt 4.0? I'm surprised they'd have a BMW show the same day...

Yes, it is Rick. I was just posting info. Our Welt 4.0 meeting is on May 12th. I plan on being there Saturday 11th. And then taking off Monday and Tuesday for some Alpine driving. Adreas and I want to drive the Gross Glockner on Monday. Sunday after the Welt, I will drive down to Kufstein where Andreas lives. Maybe some of you guys will join us?

Im planning to be there on Saturday as well and hoping for a 4 day weekend so I can join on some of the Monday drive before heading back to SW Monday evening.


Hmmm, guess ill just have to keep an eye out for the SW or Wurzburg meets that are after 12 MAY.

Let me know how your OCC goes as I'm still waiting to do mine...
Hey Rick, nice tip. I'm waiting for mine to be delivered as we speak and I'll put this to good use. Frank
