When I first bought the car...




At this point I had fitted the Team 745i performance package, a boost guage and an AF ratio gauage. 350hp and 14" tires are not a recommended combination!


Putting on the front euro bumper...






With Victor's old car in the reflection...


Small pictures....





At this point, I had replaced the front suspention, wheel bearings brakes, rear springs and put Bilstein HDs on. New stainless brake lines, booster, master cyl...

With BBS wheels, new springs and a some wax...

Very nice Scottie!

What do you have mounted where your wastegate solenoid is supposed to be? Assume it is controlling the wastegate, but did you do away with the factory solenoid?

That was some sort of gizmo that Don lent me to play around with. It has since been removed. That reminds me, Don. I have to give that back to you!

Those are really some beautiful pictures you posted. I really enjoy seeing pictures of the progress of everyone 745i. Yours is very tastefully done. That from spoiler looks great. Is it an OEM pice or from a tuner such as BBS or Zender?

Scottie the car looks amazing with that front spoiler. It looks so good I had to get one for myself. I found one locally and picked it up used, it needs a little work to make it perfect but that fine.

Anyway, your spoiler dosnt seem to have the opening on the pass side of the fog light for the cooling fan, is this so or is it the way the picture was taken?

Also can you please describe in detail the installation of the front spoiler. It looks as if you had us bumopers first then converted to euro bumpers. On the euro bumpers do you need to remove the rubber strip in order to mount the spoiler? Thanks for any help you might provide.

Steven, thanks!

That is a BBS front spoiler. It is identical as the 745i one except for the cutouts for the intercooler. I took it off a euro 728 or 732 or something.

Mounting it is quite simple. There are only six bolts holding it on. I'm surprised it stays on at triple digits, really!

Scottie can you tell me how to remove the front rubber molding that wraps around the euro bumper?

To me it look like you have to gain access behind there in order to mount the spoiler, is that right or no?

Thanks
