Quads are on!

Megan Racing Quads installed this morning......

Had to use an OEM 550i diffuser for the time being until my duke dynamics arrives. Before anyone says it, I know the tips look a bit too far out! lol. I had them leave a little extra because of the incoming diffuser. May still bring them in if I don't like it after that. Should have a spoiler on it this week as well to balance the look out.

They were actually the rolled titanium (blue) tips from Megan. I just took them to my local powder coating shop and had them do a high temp satin black coating on them. Its good for up to 800 degrees which they assured me was more than enough for my use.

hahaha....dont worry, there is a reason those are at the bottom of my future mods list. Haven't even bought yet let alone gotten them into the paint shop for tinting like someone else I know! So you'll definitely still beat me to it.
