    Eventuri Carbon Fiber Engine Cover for the BMW M2 F87

    I picked this up from the team at IND not sure if it's on the site yet but I believe they have them in stock.

    Everyone can use more carbon fiber.....

    Items that you will need - BMW Logo - part # 11 14 7 788 967 (this is not the same part number on our BMW M2 Engine cover)

    You will also need to pull the rubber grommets (total 3) out of the oem engine cover and put them into the carbon fiber cover as well as the insulation. Pics below.

    Since I'm a bit ocd I went ahead and used the Rupes Ibrid Short Neck with the Rupes Yellow Pad and Jeffscar Micro Finishing Polish (coming soon) to remove some of the hazing left behind from possibly the wetsanding and compounding after the clear coat was sprayed. I went ahead and polished it out to remove the haze and bring out the shine. Following it with 2 layers of Nanolex SI3D HD ; )

    I opted to remove the Eventuri decal.....
    Probably should have removed them first before polishing

    Removing the rubber nib, removing knobs, removing hair off your tires.

    I used one of the razor blades that we use for clear film installation to clip them off, some use nail clipper or box cutters all good.

    The dash camera installation -

    I would recommend a pro doing this install, even though I'm sure I was capable of doing this install I was glad I left it to our in house pro installer at our shop. It's a little more in depth than hardwiring a radar.

    When I saw the following threads I was inspired to get this done to the M2. I thought it would not only look good but would be a great way to do some OEM plus mods to make the car a bit tighter.

    Steve_Jr's thread on his F30 - http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1234698

    And this one from Europe
    http://www.babybmw.net/forum/viewtop...710096a1ec1bf5

    I believe the below are all the parts needed to do the M3/M4 F8x Carbon Fiber Strut Mod on our M2's.

    Hex Bolt - 11-28-7-839-136 x 6
    Guide Sup - 31-30-7-853-702 x 2
    Hexagon S - 094C3 - 07-11-9-904-141 x 6
    Torx Screw - 31-10-6-859-809 x 10
    Fillister - 07-14-7-162-464 x 2
    CFRP strut front end 1EA : 51618061631
    Alloy Strut brace (left steering) 1EA : 31122284855

    The tricky part was hoping that the eventuri carbon fiber air intake would fit.

    Jesse my mechanic took the hold out and reversed the bolt on top to make it fit nice and tight put some padding under the high points that would touch or potentially rub.

    All in nice and tight and looking good.
