Rikx1M version 2.0

In case any of you are interested....Version 2.0 after installing some minor upgrades like fire extinguisher, cargo netting, clear bra, titanium brake shims and new 19" Alufelgen CS7 rims....

Dude, those rims look great! How'd you mount the extinguisher, did you install the forward cargo hooks yourself and what's the purpose of the brake shims?

Have a one...

^^^thanks...extinguisher came with a frame which I just screwed into the side panel with normal screws. Yes I did the cargo hooks myself, after getting all the parts it was about an hour...not too bad. There's a good DIY in the forum. Brake shims made from titanium reduce heat transfer to calipers and seals, reducing fluid temperatures and hopefully blown seals in my calipers.

Did you have to change pads to install the shins? Was it a DIY type job?

Thx

I had the shop replace my brake fluid with DOT 5.1 and they installed these at the same time...for now running OEM pads. I wanted to see how they'd do at Spa.

Car looks great, the CF mirror covers would compliment the overall look very well.

Actually sadly I've been toying with the pros and cons of selling my 1M as my 135 isn't selling and two car payments and full coverage insurance is taking it's toll....know anyone looking for a LeMans blue 2011 135 in great shape?
