Yes, you need to drill holes for rivets, and also small pilot holes for the screws too. Like I said, a straight forward DIY, but a good bit of (easy) drilling, screws, and rivets.

I really like your front splitter.
Is it the original MPerformance?

That is M Performance style. I just didn't install the sides.

It is possible.
I cover up the holes for the screw that needed to secure the front lip to the splitter with black vinyl.

Anyone with bluestone metallic who has completed this upgrade willing to share pics? I'm seriously thinking of doing this. Just want to see how it looks before I pull the trigger.

Yep, these parts seem a bit more difficult to get spot on - I have a lower front spoiler and mine is a bit closer in fitment, but not 100% either... At least my car is dark like yours so it isn't as noticeable - on a white car it would drive me nuts

Loving this! I just added these Rennessis mirror caps which I picked up from SSDD. Loving the new look. What do you think?

I like the carbon fiber, just wondering if you need more CF to tie it in, as in a rear diffuser or side skirts and maybe a front lip CF spoiler. All are pretty affordable on ebay aftermarket. I got my CF diffuser off ebay and it fits almost perfectly!

Totally agree - it's on the roadmap next is gonna be the lip spoiler, but splitter and skirts are on the agenda too! Just dropped it on eibach springs and TPI spacers - has made a massive difference to handling and looks better too.

Have now added CF spoiler which ties in nicely with the mirror caps. Next up will be splitter but first, I am having the resonator in the Midpipe removed and replaced with a custom SS straight through

Can I have the link where you bought the M5 style front bumper? how was the fitment and do you need to create any hole for the PDC? Thanks You
