Looks good, but not sure on the black bits around the fogs, the left ones doesnt look 100% level, might just bit the angle of the pic.
Not sure about those either... They're chrome inserts (like those from MossMini) that I had wrapped black.

I'll have to trim the lower lip a little, it's scraping everywhere, even while stopping at traffic lights on a road with rutting. Sure got us some looks in the city center of Bremen... :D

Hope to sort the skirt next week (stupid BMW-dealer taking forever with those clips) and will testfit the wheels after that. Than they're of to the coater, as I hope to have them on the car before DUMP'd on 8 September... :)

He's my father-in-law, but that's kind of my replacement dad, as I havn't had any contact with my own parents in years (rough youth etc). He retired early this year, so he's got lots of time to spare... :)

So, the rear wiper wasn't that useful, turning drops into a sandy haze. I tried not using it for a while, and that worked just fine, even in heavy rain on the motorway. It had to go, but I'd rather have a piece of glass than a plastic bung in the hole, so I ordered one from wiper blanking plug. wiper blanking grommet. de-wipering. wiper delete. - Wischerloch cleanen. Heckwischer entfernen.:

Used one of the 3 screws that held the motor on to plug the hose:

Added a tie-wrap to be sure:

Wrapped both the screw and the connector so it won't rattle, added a tie-wrap as well:

Glued the piece of glass in:

Afterwards gave the car a wash and applied Rain-X, first test with some water looked really good! :cool:
