I'm just sick. I didn't realize I hadn't put it in park and took my foot off the brake looking in my console for my glasses and ran it into a concrete rim in my garage at 2 mph. Is this even fixable or is it going to be replacing the whole bumper cover? Name:  IMG_3541.jpg

I know I'm a bit anal about this, but if the engine is running, I always assume that the car can move. Yes, I will sit in my car with my foot on the brake while the the car is in park and the parking brake on if the engine is running. (Hell, my foot is on the brake if I'm sitting in the drivers seat even when the engine is off). You also won't catch me outside my car with the engine running unless my wheels are chocked, and the only reason I'd ever get out with the engine running is if I'm doing some sort of maintenance / diagnostic that requires me to be outside the car with the engine on (or if my wife decides to borrow my car, but that doesn't happen as much since I bought her a 230).

Overkill? Probably. But, I know my car will never move unexpectedly unless it simultaneously has a failure of the parking brake, transmission and brake line/wheel chocks.

I've bought a few of their offerings. The visors, radio cover and the knee rest. Just placed an order for the cf side air vents to complete the look. Obviously, overall happy with their products, but was disappointed in the knee rest. Claims 50% more padding. Don't see it.

I was today years old when I learned that, if you close the cupholder cover, the space there width-wise is absolutely perfect for holding an iPhone 12 (not the bigger model) with an Apple leather case on it.

Normally I put my phone on the passenger seat - in the gap between the thigh support and the seat itself. I leave the passenger thigh bolster open enough to hold the phone and that's where I've put my phone for years in my BMW's.

I may start using the cupholder cover, if I don't have a drink obviously

Still looking for ideal place to keep a handgun...

I bought these on your recommendation, they were delivered today and look fantastic.

That said how do you get the old ones off. There seems to be a brass pin on top but no allen or hex in sight. Did I simply not look hard enough?

EDIT, they just come off as they are spring fit. A few taps with a dead blow mallet and they were off.

Thanks in advance and I'll post a picture to the thread when they are installed.

Pictures attached. They look GREAT!
Looks great!

I ended up purchasing a set of square M235 wheels (yay). I originally intended on these being my snows but, after some elbow grease come to find they're in better shape than the wheels I currently have.

Is there any real concern if I were to run a square tire setup on the stock staggered wheels? I know that would kill my chances of rotating the tires but I think I'd rather keep the new set for my summers.

Just a bit of oversteer, nothing crazy.

Ordered the carbon fiber shifter surround and shifter trim from Turner. I wish these parts came with the carbon fiber interior package, but oh well.

I was looking for downsides.

I ordered 225/40/18 all the way around so it's not a huge difference - same in the front, slightly narrower than stock in the rear but should fit both fine. I don't expect to use these more than two seasons anyway.

I'm slightly skeptical of the need for snow tires after moving to the city - given I made it through last winter without even thinking twice about it. However, I also was working remotely 80% of the time so there wasn't much need to drive when the roads weren't clear. But we'll give them another try. Hoping the Sottozeros are what they're cracked up to be. I used to run X-Ice and absolutely HATED the dry performance. In Colorado, 95% of the time it's just cold. 4% of the time its cold and wet. And 1% of the time there's actually snow on the roads.

Ouch. I picked up a screw three weeks ago. Fortunately, I could not have hit it any more dead center if I had tried. Mine was patchable.
