Hi guys,


I've been lurking the forums for quite some time and have learned a lot from all the members contributions here on TMC. I just finished installing the face lift LED headlights onto my P85 last week - so I decided to go ahead start a build thread. I've already completed all the upgrades below and I'll upload pictures when I get the chance and answer any questions you guys have. The MS has been such a great everyday car, and its fun to tinker with after the kids go to bed!

When I die I want to be reincarnated (pun intended) as your next car — the level of care you provide is incredible!

Nice, do you have instructions for those updates?

How does your interior look like.

Congrats on the nice ride!

I wouldn't call them full blown instructions, but I did snap a couple of pictures during some of the installs that I'll post soon. You should see the interior when I post up the next gen seat install and the aftermarket steering wheel install

How's the rub in the front? Anything you do to fix it?!

I chose 245/35 to avoid rubbing issues at my ride height and with the spacers. The car barely rubs only when I'm turning into a driveway, other than that no issue. You do loose wheel protection with this tire size but I'm ok with that.

Found a decent deal for a newer 4 piece CF trim set with black accents. Made for a quick and easy weekend project. Sorry, I know I’m missing some steps but I wanted to throw a post together real quick for you guys.

View media item 120859Before the install..

View media item 120858Remove side dash board trim piece.

View media item 120860Remove this single screw under the steering wheel column. Pull the large trim piece below the steering column straight out towards you.

View media item 120861Remove upper odometer trim piece to get to the 2 screws secured to the dash.

View media item 120862Use an air wedge reveal screws above the air vents. Remove lower screws and pull the vent straight out. Be careful; I’ve seen others chip/crack trim pieces during removal.

View media item 120864Remove 4 screws to securing the odometer. Remove leather trim piece below the odometer.

View media item 120865The CF set didn’t include all the air vents with the newer black accents. Had to swap over silver trim accents.

View media item 120866Newer air vents have a better design. Less moving parts. Closes tighter. No foam pieces (that disintegrates over time).

View media item 120868Remove these screws and carefully pull straight out. Use a plastic trim removal tool to wedge from behind to help release the metal prongs.

View media item 120869
View media item 120871
View media item 120873Remove right dash board trim piece and use an air wedge to release the front of the dash board to reveal screws securing air vents

View media item 120875Remove 3 screws below the trim. Carefully pull trim straight out.

You got a pair of OPolar fans too?!?!? Sweet! I got a pair that clipped on and ran a couple of USB cables to keep them charged. My kids are older and don't like riding in the rear facing seats anymore, but it was a good solution at the time...

the Opolar fans are the best solution I could come up with to cool the third row in the summer. I had one suctioned to each rear side glass point towards the trunk and a third Opolar fan clipped to lip of the sub floor opening. Worked great.

Hopefully you and all your families have been staying safe in these unprecedented times. With all this free time being home, I have a few updates and have a new set of wheels on the way.

-Maxton Designs Splitter V1 Kit installed by FILAM Autobody & Body Repair in Houston, TX
-Refresh rear bumper & rocker panels installed
-Cup holder w/ dual USB retrofit into yacht floor center console
-Replaced the air filter (anyone know where to buy a HEPA filter that is the same size?)
-Fan type windshield nozzle upgrade
-Reorderd the same steering wheel in matte CF from Martin @ www.therustymechanic.com
-N2itive camber and toe arms ordered
-New wheels! 22x9.5/22x11 ordered

First, the best $8.80 I have ever spent. Everyone who has a pre-refresh MS knows how crappy the spray type nozzles are. Mine sprayed everywhere I didn’t need them. Very simple and cheap upgrade.
View media item 121108The left nozzle is the old version and the right one is newer fan type.
View media item 121111View media item 121109 The new fan type nozzle doesn’t need the gasket like the old one.
View media item 121112 Pop the hood. Twist off the plastic line coming off the old nozzle where it meets the T adapter. Reach in the cut out in the hood and disengage the old nozzle (I forgot if it disengages pushing it toward or away from the windshield, but you’ll figure out). Replace with the new nozzle and voila. Should have done this so much sooner. Nice even spay.

Air Filter change:

View media item 121114Pop the hood. Remove the plastic panels on the passenger side and the one closest to the windshield.

View media item 121115Filter is located close to the firewall on passenger side. Press the tabs on the ends towards the middle of the filter to release it then pull straight out. I’d recommend wiping down the entire inner cavity of the filter housing.

View media item 121118Remember the filter is directional. Reinstall.
