@Rufus123 I ended up tracing each handle and then transferring the shape onto the 3m film. Added approx 3mm all around and cut it out.* Heated the film up and stuck it on, the 3mm excess was pushed into the gap using a old credit card.

This is the picture on my car.
The old one is somewhat hard to take off, but I have heard people doing it by pulling them straight from the front when it is warm.

No further mods to the vehicle, however while clearing I found the template I made for the door handles.

Got enough 3m vinyl in gloss black to knock up some sets (if interested)

Hey bud

First things first your gonna love the car

In terms of the grill swap there's a few guides on this site, but you will loose some chunks of skin. Apart front that's it wasn't too bad doing the swap.

Re: coding I went for most things my coder said was available on my specific version of my car. Decided to get the chassis software updated together with the traction, gearbox and engine sw done at the same time.

Massive difference was seen with the way the car drove. My fav coded item was the M6 active sound

Ping adam @ DD Coding (he's all over Instagram, FB etc and will look after ya)

Hey Darms,

Would you mind posting some more pics of your front end, maybe standing a bit further back?

I'm still debating whether to get black grills on my silver F13. Silver is a hard colour to mod IMO.

Thanks mate
