Here's a pic w/the CF kidney grilles; purchased from Turner Motorsport online; it really enhances the first impression and matches the CF side mirrors and CF trunk spoiler (I ordered and received the new Skyer Motorsports CF front lip and will install soon).

Fitment is OEM quality and the CF outer rim is exceptional quality; they've been installed for 10+ yrs and look brand new.

My bad, maybe should have said more in my innital post.

Yes, the scales are for corner balancing, the device on the front (and rear) of
the car is to mount the string used to check the front and rear toe alignment.
The HubStands are to replace the wheel/tire package to allow for a more
accurate and repeatable data (as well as better access to make adjustments)
Have this stuff from racing, so using it on the coupe is a bonus.

If appropriate, would love to know more about the "have this stuff from racing" comment....what class? what track(s)? your comments about competing?

Thanks for asking, started off Club racing, raced an E30 M3 for many years, took this car to the next level and raced in Canada's Equivalent of SCCA in the GT Sprints class, Raced in a Showroom stock Sentra Series, tried my luck at a Grand AM event in the ST Class, raced a Radical in the Canadian Radical Cup since Covid done some Time Attack stuff with the Z4M. Plan to run an a New Series with the Radical that started up this year in 2022. https://felmotorsports.com/

As for Tracks, know Mosport very well as its my home base, raced Calabogie, Shannonville, Tremblant, Watkins Glen, Mid-Ohio, Summit Point, Limerock. On my bucket list in North America Leguna Seca, Road America, Road Atlanta.

Comment about racing, heard this many years ago. "If you want to make a $1million Racing, start off with $10 million.

Which car did you race in the Radical series? Just looked and there are nine types of cars in this class? These are pure race machines - tell us about the car you competed in....engine, transmission, brakes, weight, etc....for those (such as me) that will never have a chance to compete, it's great to hear about what it's like.

Iím not sure this is the right forum to cover this. There are two separate series TCR/GT4 and Radical. In the Radical Series, all the cars are factory spec. No mods outside of set up. https://www.radicalsportscars.com. Going over the car now, canít wait to start testing using Michelinís. Cheers

Nice...saw this on an Aston Martin race car once years ago...in the machining/fab business...may put something like this together for those of us who get salty roads a few months of the year...vs letting the car sit/possibly flat spoting the tires

Made a run up to the Blue Ridge Parkway today. Fortunately there wasn't much traffic on the way up there. Had a great time "testing" the new alternator I put in earlier this week.

I got this plate in early 2002 when taking delivery of my new 2002 Honda S2000 roadster....I only had the S2000 for one yr and then traded it in on a new Civic (I know, crazy) as I was being transferred with my work to Maui for four years and didn't want the S2000's red leather to instantly turn pink from the intense sun.

So, this ILUVRPM (chosen based upon the S2000's 9,250 RPM rev limiter setting) personalized plate was still on the WA state records in my name and had not expired due to not being assigned.

When I bought my 2007 BMW Z4MR in early 2010, this plate was still in my name and available and I carried the plate to my next beloved roadster....
