Would you recommend that kind of metallic tint? How is it with phone/GPS signals?

And your M3 will have frameless windows on the front as well, does the tint still look ok on that at the edges? Not worried it'll peel off? 

My car had tint when i bought it. AM reception is non-existant :( - FM is fine.

Was a very good job, the tint goes right to the edge of the glass and has had no peeling. You can't tell really.

A few little cosmetic projects on the go with MTOY at the moment. 

I stripped and repainted the wing struts last week in prep for a rally and dialled in another few degrees on the wing. Added some subtle decals underneath to match the front :D.

I've had this Strassentech-style front splitter that I bought from Greg way back in 2012, a mate drove my car shortly after I'd fitted it and hocked a curb. It's been gathering dust in my garage ever since waiting me to get my a-into-g. I repaired it today, currently painting. Check out the split..!

Few more layers before clear, then polish, refine & paint protection film application to match my other lip. 

I've got some struts on order that'll fit in nicely on this front; my goal is to have it swap-able relatively easily (like the boot). Chances are I'll just keep the carbon one-piece lip for when I fess up for another bumper cover in the future.

Lip turned out better than expected, not bad from off the spray can..! It's going to look a bit better once I flatten the orange peel & apply paint protection film.

I also ordered a set of AGT carbon fiber canards - this'll go on spare bumper with the lip I refurbished for track days etc.

What suspension did you switch to?

The AGT carbon fiber diffusers have arrived, these are going to look crazy with the s-tech lip

Edit: one more shot from side. Different lip, canards & struts will balance it out nicely

Still waiting for the underbody rear diffuser to be finished, it's cut & put together, but it has taken forever. Almost tempted to just buy one offshore, it'd be way quicker.
