Just got my lip in. The top side looks really good but the bottom side is another story. The bottom is a bit wavy and few areas of the bottom side is missing the clear coating. Just wondering if any of you are noticing the same thing. Thanks.

Lip arrived yesterday! took 10 days more coz my smart mail forwarder in NY lost the package. Anyhow it's here now

The finish looks really good I believe. for a low mounted part, any minor manufacturing defects will never show anyhow. 1x1 really matches the rear bumper gray part above the tail pipes.

Special thanks to Allen for making this happen

Heres a pic of mine holding up all the way to vegas and back for those worried about high speed durability (I have 3 rows of 1/2 inch double side tape and I put a bead of silicone on the leading edge to prevent wind from creeping underneath the tape).

OK gang ......here we go .... thanks again to Pap's for pulling this together and thanks to Sam at Keenan's for great paint work (did spoiler and lip)! Put the lip on this morning and joined an Audi get together.

Install was simple enough, better if you had a jack. 3 bolts reused, but I think there isn't enough purchase with the one in the middle. Might have to find something a little longer, but it's holding up as of now. Used another 3 rows of 3M tape on top of the one the lip came with. Tested to 180km/h, no problems so far!






Hi, did you order it through HP Autowerks? How did you clear custom with the order? I'm interested in ordering it too, but don't want to go through anyone if possible.

Thanks.

Ordered through HPA during the groupbuy stage. Sent with FedEx. Frankly, don't know how customs cleared, it was sent to my doorstep!

Get it man, it looks perfect!

In addition to http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showp...&postcount=197, here some pictures of ///M stripes on VO (a rare sight because most stripes feature on AW) during the BMW Driving Experience at the Nürburgring in October 2011.

M3EST participated to the BMW Driving Experience at the Nürburgring in October 2011 (http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showt...php?p=10743427). Below is one of his pictures.

Unfortunately, the red part of the ///M stripe partially blends in with the VO. Better contrast on AW.
