Everything is getting installed at the moment. One issue I ran into was the Carbon Fiber Rear Bumper Diffuser. It was damaged in transit and I had to send it back to get another one. Probably have to wait another 3-5 days on that part. Damn them!

Will post pics of the finished product as well as thoughts/opinions of the products and install process soon. Taking out the Nikon D5 to take some "professional" photos for y'all haha. No more iPhone photos.

Been very busy and have not been a blessed with 5 minutes to upload all the pics and do a review. Will post what has been done in the past week - two weeks. But to sum it up quick before my posts.

Got done Front Bumper, Side Skirts, Rear Bumper.
Steering Wheel + Trim, Pedals, Shifter and Boot
Interior Trim Carbon Fiber
Smoked Sidemarkers
Intake Manifold + AA Stage 2 Tune.

Looks and certainly feels like a new car. Took the pics with my D5. Get ready for some professional photos boys and girls.

That's a lot of money.

Do the M3 control arms and subframe bushings while you're at it.

Wow, great build & thread. Don't know how I haven't caught this one till now, I mostly stick to the 128i/N52, Susp & Brakes, and Wheel/Tire forums on this site....caught this by accident almost lol.

I have a question on the AFE headers, they are the only performance headers I know of for the N52 that have Catalytics, haven't seen too many / if any people with this. How did you find the fit and quality? Any thoughts on performance gain from them? I know the Supersprint and AA headers make for decent gains, just don't have any real world feedback on the AFE model.

TIA.

Quality, fit and finish were on point. I really only had the AFE Stage 2 CAI on prior to the headers and can say that the gains were quite noticeable. Hope to get on the dyno before I get into stage 3 of my build. I was going to go with the AA Headers but got a great deal on the AFE Headers. I have always liked their products so it was a no brainer.
