Talking My 2 series build en route to SEMA!!

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hey guys just want to give a huge thanks to all my sponsors that have been taking part in helping mod my 2 series that will be attending SEMA in Las Vegas at the beginning of next month. Still tons of stuff that has to be finished up and installed but I'm crossing my fingers that it will all be completed in the next 12 days

Quick list of all the companies:
Mckenna BMW
Ark Performance
Dinmann
Carbonwerkes
Wrapwerkes
Seibon
NRG Innovations
Savini wheels
Toyo tires
Rolloface
BPM sport
Hexon Racing
European auto source
H&R springs
Evolution Racewerks

*don't mind the iphone pics, I can't afford a camera after all the mods *

They were custom fabricated out of 1/4" steel plates, we used the OEM seat sliders and we are using grade 10 hardware. I actually still need to get the brackets powdercoated in black so it looks more OEM. These are just temporary seats for the show as I'll be getting a set of Recaros after the show.

I purchased the ///M colored decal striped from ebay for about $9
Just gotta lay them onto the grill slits and trim the extra material with an exacto knife.

Those wheels look like an excellent fit. What are the size and offset? Any spacers needed to fit flush?

Nice look mate, really like the side sills in black instead of the black sticker MP sells.

Those are carbonwerkes carbon fiber sideskirt lips.
VMR V703 in gunmetal 18x8.5 et35 & 18x9.5 et45, no spacers needed to make them sit flush. No rubbing either.

For sema I'll be running savini BM9 wheels in brushed bronze in 19x8.5 et35 and 19x9.5 et45 with 225/35/19 & 245/30/19. I'll make sure to upload pics as soon as those go on.

So sorry about the late reply. I've been super swamped at the office as I'll be gone for 10 days during Sema. I believe the Seibon carbon fiber hood weighs rougly 17 lbs, I haven't weighed the OEM but I'll contact Seibon tomorrow to see if they can weigh the OEM hood and I'll report back.

The hood has grown on me but I do plan on vinyl wrapping the car a charcoal grey or gloss black color after Sema.
