No valvetronic motor or eccentric shaft sensor either. I would be interested in reading more about this - got a link?

Bought a stock diff from the local salvage yard, $60.
I need to get this thing on the road pronto.
Putting things back together now.

MFactory finally emailed me today. Asked for more info.
So after I explain I expect to hear back sometime mid July.

Gotta double check and see why the top middle of this bumper isn't sitting flush with the rest. Probably just a clip that's slightly off. Really hate how fragile these bumper tabs are. Bumper is currently off and hoping to finish up the quarter panel bodywork tomorrow. Still waiting on carbon diffuser and front fang overlays before I can put on the front bumper. Still shooting for end of June to be "done" with exterior stuff for now, besides the new wheels. Those will still be a couple months

I wasn't sure of the color, but man, it looks fantastic.

My bumper sits the same, I have no idea why.

Goofy verts had both like that. I'm currently trying to figure out if I wanna do a euro trunk without the sharkfin or do a coupe duckbill trunk and modify it for the vert

Thanks! I really love it. In person it just looks crazy.

I just noticed there's a broken tab right there. Might remove it entirely and see how the bumper sits

Cars back together. Test drive went fine.
I'll have to get the old diff apart and ship it off. At least I'm not in any rush now.

Weird. Are they both functional? Duckbill on a vert can look good if you keep the lines going right.

I don't use either regular or satellite radio so they're both useless to me. Ultimately next year's plan to paint the car also includes shaving the side antenna. I'm actually leaning towards a clean sharkfin-less euro trunk. I was thinking I might buy an E92 high kick spoiler and fit it to the euro E88 trunk. I like doing new stuff

Did one quarter today. Skirt and bumper aren't fully bolted on in this pic. And the front fenders need to be redone. Didnt anticipate water getting under the vinyl there with the side markers not in yet.

I'm also not happy with the bodywork on the quarters. Those are going to be readdressed at some point. Maybe pull the vinyl off, fix the bodywork, and rewrap or just wait until I paint the car.

My stock bumper is raised slightly in the middle as well. No accidents etc. On black cars it's more difficult to notice, compared to your awesome ninja-turtle-green setup! Love the progress by the way
