Car is lookin good Vic. In the same boat, trying to decide on how to drop the car. Feel like H&R springs or KW V3 are the best (only) options out right now.

When parts shopping, did you notice any availability for gloss black mirror caps as opposed to the carbon fiber? I saw in another post that the Canadian BMW order guide offers that as a factory option on the M340i along with black trim grill.

I'm looking for the gloss black mirror caps as well. I know you can under the mirror caps primed and then have them painted at a body shop but I'd much rather just buy them good-to-go if possible. Even if it means having them shipped from Canada.

Dang I can't imagine driving into that garage, I'd be scared as all hell getting in and out. I'm terrified driving into my parking spot at work let alone a single bay garage like that.

However...the car is looking nice.

Grill Removal Help

Shadowline Front Grille with Parking Assist
https://ind-distribution.com/collect...e-front-grille

Installed today. Fairly straightforward but a couple things to look out for. When popping the push clips out ensure you go slowly and don't lose the pin for the clip they are not one piece. For models with parking assist look closely on the back side of the grille you need to transfer the entire camera from the old grille to the new. Ensure that the connections are pushed in tightly after swapping. My camera was not working after 1st installed and had to remove and reseat the connection. Now that i did it twice I have the process down and could probably do it in about 15 mins. Let me know if anyone has any questions.

Hello! I just picked up the same grille. How on earth do you get it off? Do you have a video or can you reference any instructions online? Thanks. Ed

What about the M-Performance rear diffuser and front splitter for the m340i? That would add more spice to the sporty look!!

Im waiting on more aftermarket for front splitter and rear diffuser. I like the diffuser but not liking the front splitter and carbon wings that BMW has made for the m340i.
