Introducing DSCPLN's AW 1M

Finally got around to completing all the light mods I had in mind for the car since picking it up 5 weeks ago. Today was nice.. so I took a few quick DSLR shots of the car for all your viewing pleasure -

Color matches the Zakim bridge nicely. Love the "No Park" shot, too!

As far as lighting mods my suggestions would be:

1. Change front indicator from orange bulb to maybe a gray bulb.

2. Lux 5K is a perfect match to the LED eyebrows, but if you meant to have some color variation btwn. the eyebrows and coronas then you're good.

3. Can't tell if you have these for the side markers, but if not: http://parts.ind-distribution.com/pr...1MPS%5E688.php

RE 1- a set of Solaris Invisibulbs are already on their way .. was hoping nobody would notice :P

RE 2- I tried ordering the 5000k temperature versions of the Lux Angel Eyes.. they were out of stock with no estimate on inventory replenishment. Don't mind the slight color difference either way, think its nicely distinguished.

RE 3- I contemplated long and hard about getting the black sidemarkers.. but I stuck with the stock sidemarkers because I didn't want the car looking over done.

Looks amazing and the pictures are great!!!

Have you thought about adding the OEM Rear Carbon Fiber Spoiler??? Since you already have the CF mirror covers IMHO the spoiler would match and add a nice touch...

Miula

P.S. Let's see if we can get the rest of the 1M's in Boston together for a small GTG

Also a mod I considered for a very long time about.. but after seeing them in-person on several M3's, I think I prefer the clean look of the stock spoiler, dust doesn't collect as easily between the crevice, and a lot of people think it resembles the old CSL-style trunks :P

looks great - based on your black lines thread I just ordered some from Schmiedmann. Did you get euro headlights and if so how much were they?

Feel free to add two pictures of your choice (for example the first two May 2013 pictures ?) to the 1M portfolio:

Exceptional!, also thx for sharing the modlist with all ins and outs

Do you happen to have links or DIY suggestions for the removal of the overhead Airbag warnings?
