    I had a BA Falcon as a company car when I first came to NZ... Had been in my possession for about 3 days before it had it's first trip back to the dealership.

    Only thing it was good for was seeing how high I could get the reading on the fuel consumption screen.

    Having been to the factories in Aussie where they screwed them together, and the engine plant would rather walk everywhere than spend my own hard earned money on one!

    You remind me more and more of Ron.

    “I drove one in the 90s and it was terrible and they therefore all are”. And forever will be.

    That looks bloody mint dave. I think it suits your blue more than my red. The most noticeable gaps are definitely at the end on the sides. The top front gap I quickly forgot was there. I wonder if self tapping screws can bend the sides in enough to close the gap.

    I think because it curves slightly upwards the approach angle at the front isn't actually bad at all especially considering its length. At standard motorsport height I never scraped the front edge, it was always those 2 points at the bottom I showed you.

    And be careful about the rough inside scratching your motorsport lip.

    it doesn't look like this is installed with the lip does it?



    If you look closely at the side here, I wouldn’t say that’s a great fit either.

  3. What's the best place to get one of these? The lip that goes under the front bumper, like a mini splitter?

    Tried FCP,  Ecs and turners (who wanted 7 times the item price for shipping), anything local or worth asking at BMW? Had a look on eBay too, prices are all over the show.

    My suspicions...

    And I was so hoping that there might have been some 'knack' or technique to sort this.

    I suspect the inability to open the door from the outside may become a 'security feature' - I really don't feel like pulling the door apart any more than I already have.

    Unless I’m wrong, it will then become a Wof feature.
