i prefer the look with the visors.

PS: i broke the passenger front visor during installation. not really broken but 2 minor chips to the front and back edges of the visor. Well those minor chips were major enough that the visor would not sit right, causing the window to not open and close easily. sometimes it would close or open fully but then it will get stuck in either the up or down position. it would take about 3-5 mins of leaving it alone before it was operable again. i took the visor out and it's all good now. I'll just have to order a new passenger visor.

it's easy to do the rear windows but the front ones require some effort and being very careful. so take heed.
Do those visors just fit into the window troughs or are they the ones that require tape to the outside of the vehicle? What is the wind noise like? I had these on another vehicle and it caused more wind noise so I had to remove them.

You can find Morel car speakers here:

http://www.morelhifi.com/products/mob_3way_elate.html

My system has been built from the Elate series replacing the OEM speakers which were just the EU basic - sounding flat. Morel is a renowned Israeli maker of audiophile speakers for custom built home speakers and car audio.

The power comes from this Swedish baby:

http://www.dls.se/en/car/prod.html?produkt=en_6

It is DLS Ultimate A3 twin mono amp for the front speakers and I have a DLS Performance CA23 for the rear. No trunk subwoofer...
The system is built as stealth, nothing can be seen but heard...

Hi Denalio,
Where did you buy the mudguard? They look great. Did you install them
yourself? or the dealer did this?

That is "sickyute's" ride not mine. Hopefully he will chime in for you.

the front and the rear fit into the window track.
the front uses no tape as it is a perfect fit and needs a little working to get in there.
the rear uses tape but still goes inside the window track for a nice tight fit.
they fit perfectly.

the wind noise is substantially LESS now. An added bonus for me as i was not expcting that. Before the visors i'd have to keep all 4 windows open to combat wind noise and too much wind through the front window. Now i can just keep the front window open without opening the back ones and it's fine.

The mudguards are BMW / OEM. They installed them at the dealer for free while the car was over there for some issue that i was having.

i think the mudguards will look great with the aero kit. That was my initial plan. After much thought and hitting a piece of foam on one of the road debris laden south florida road i decided against it cuz it would get chipped easilly. But i think it will look really good with the aero kit. It makes the car look more muscular i think, add that to the sexiness of the aero kit and i think u have a winner.

Just be sure u get the right ones for ur specific application.
