I finally installed the bumper this weekend. All I need to do is to wire the foglights, and get some tires.

And Yes, it needs a wash.

looking good! Its nice to see another compact in the works! I had my hopes set on an M3 front end too.....but i couldnt find one for a reasonable price (used & in good shape) I decided to leave my front end and picked up a zender front lip. Not sure if you've seen them, but racing dynamics makes a nice set of sports mirrors and they look really good on the TI. By the way, whats the width on the wheels you plan on getting....I heard that anything over 7.5 rubs at high speeds (for the TI) Hope to see more pics soon!*th-up*

Thanks guys,

I picked up the bumper on ebay for $120CAD. It was slightly damaged but a friend of mine fixed it up.
I've been thinking about the sides skirts(almost picked them up yesterday for 230CAD) but I am a bit scared that I'll have even more trouble clearing speed bumps with them. Right now I can clear some of the medium size bumps, anything larger gives me trouble.

The mirrors would be nice but they are not a priority. I want to get a new differential and DASC. The wheels that I have right now are 17" EPIC Arnage. They are 7" wide with 42mm ofset. As far as I know 8" 235/245 wheels/tires can be put on a ti without any rubbing, providing that the offset is correct. There might be a little problem with the moulding in the left rear wheel well but it can be fixed in a matter of seconds with a hammer. :)

The M3 sides are not lower then what you have now, just different design, so you shoudnt have any problems!
