It looks great. I've got my splitters too, and it seems I will have to bend them to make them fit snugly. Was it the same with you? I've given them for cf wrapping so they should be fitted in the next few days. I'm only planning on using 3M tape to fit them. Also are the screws at the bottom of the bumper hard to get to?

I didn't have to open up any screws. The splitters I got came with 2 holes where the screws at the bottom sit. S they kind of work like a marker for the correct placement of the splitters.

I had to use superglue to stick them on. Have put superglue only on the bottom bit, so if I have to yank them out for any reason, only the paint from the bottom would get damaged.

Is there any other place to check the manufacturing date quickly? the showroom guys keep telling him that its 2011 manufactured.

Hey Akshay!!

Being a newbie, even I can't PM anyone.
Could you also PM Maverick5490 for me and confirm the manufacturing date please?
I am getting a November 2011 manufacturing date on wildon.
My VIN is WBAPP170X0NN74255.
Thanks a lot!

Expect some good snaps of the car next week after our next German drive to Silvassa. Nothing else to report really, the car is working fine. Haven't really got to use it much, its still at 6800 odd kms, and I still cant wait to switch from RFTs. The stiff ride is the only thing which manages to irritate me, otherwise its such a fun car to drive.

Shall wait for the pics.

Also to mention the car looks spanking hot having seen it in flesh last week.

All those visual upgrades are spot on

Here are pics of the car, it just got detailed. The mods done so far are -
CF replica splitters
CF replica spoiler
BMW Performance black grilles
Chrome trim around the window wrapped in gloss black

The car needs white angel eyes now IMO.

Don't know about white corona rings, I kinda like my yellows Also, was eagerly waiting for those gun metal alloys we spoke about a couple of months back! My mind is almost there for those. Will wait till a time that I don't need the car for a couple of days to get that done. Also, had checked on the black grills - looks awesome on whites and grays but still not convinced about it on my colour.

Gunmetal alloys as soon as I get some free time to get it done. It will really look good.

Buddy, your colour is one which will look the best with the black grilles, and stop over at autopsyche and get the chrome around the windows wrapped in gloss black, no cf or anything. It will look hot.
