    That is a better way without the plotter, that way they can cover the complete bumper and maybe that Alpina lip later if you decide to install that as well. They did mine that way along with those added splitter tips...

    The Xpel clear wrap was finished today and it's fantastic. The entire front bumper, hood, fenders, mirrors, lights, rockers, door bottoms and associated trim pieces and lastly, the bottom of the rear bumper all the way to the back corner of the car. The stuff looks like new paint and has a 10 year warranty. I was extremely skeptical about spending the money but after seeing it installed on the car and talking to a lot of friends who have had their cars done, I think it was money well spent. But I would not suggest doing it to a car that isn't in near pristine shape.

    Also, my brake vibration is gone! No more squeal when coming to a stop either. The slotted rotors look better, make less noise than the drilled and those Hawk HPS 5.0 pads seem to be perfect.

    Tomorrow I drop it off at Thayer so that Clay can install my new 4 clutch M5 diff. Very excited to experience that.

    Finally, the RD2's will arrive Monday and the BC's will be here by February 1st supposedly!

    Trevor came up to finish a few things. Sport button works now! It was still rainy so didn't get to test out the diff too much. Just getting wheel spin all the time when I get on it.
