With the M3 suspension mods do you use the m3 camber plates as well?

Ive seen a lot of people say that pins are mandatory with CF, but ive seen a couple people without them.

What is your opinion without using them? Do you feel your hood is "safe"? What is the highest speed youve taken your car with it like this?
Im on the fence about it. I probably should get hood pins, but i really dont notice any lift or wobble, even in in the 100 plus mph range

A bit much for my taste. Sticker is a bit silly and I would swap the rear lights to darkline LCIs or something.

Love the 1er, looks sick!
BTW what is the size/specs of your wheels? 18s or 19s? Been looking into buying some 701s!
