breaks my heart to see a brand new panel get chopped like that... All for a good cause though..

Lonsdale Paint & Panel. We spent a lot of time studying other jobs so very pleased so far. Glad I took the wheel down as we have had to make a couple of adjustments underneath to maximise clearance and ensure the liners fit. The curve of the flare does not seem exactly OEM as per the 1M but havenít finished fully forming it yet. It is very strong welds.

Did you reuse the 135i's fender lips? Worth flattening them out for wheel clearance, all the BMW M cars do not have this troublesome lip and theyre rolled flat.

Yes we did and after doing test fit with the 1M rim we did some more work on the inner guard to maximise space. Do no think the lip was flattened but I am retaining stock 135i hubs which gives me an additional 10mm width with the 1M wheels and no rubbing issues

Thanks my car has their full time attention at the moment so only a couple of more weeks.

Will still have to sort the custom quad exhaust system as my preferred shop Exhaust Technology has gone out of business.

Any Adelaide recommendations from Forum members?
