Very nice! High quality bodywork indeed. However, the paint matching wasn't exactly spot on. All you're missing is a M3 hood and you're done.

But still a very nice project!

flashmeow 08-16-2011 03:05 PM

nice and clean !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but why did you buy real M3 side mirrors instead of replicas?

fabianchin 08-16-2011 03:06 PM

Working on it =) fiber parts $$$ next check lol.

flashmeow 08-16-2011 03:07 PM

You should keep an eye out for a OEM M3 hood. They may make your wallet heavier and use the saving towards some lowering components.

Great work!!

fabianchin 08-16-2011 03:14 PM

Damn that is a hard question, Xar cost me like 6k sedan 2002 325i, and probably put in 10k. Wheels, Tires, OEM front (with the fiber bumper reinforment), Oem Back, Exhaust, Welding, Making the Front Fenders, All the lower plastics Inner fenders.(interior custom Leather panels,the complete alarm system,ipod adapter).. its crazy DONT DO IT lol... (dont forget LABOR and Material)...

if you need more especific details on any mod I can probably tell u a number.

fabianchin 08-16-2011 03:16 PM

fabianchin 08-16-2011 03:16 PM

Very nice, especially the body work to make the rear bumper fit. How did you run the exhaust? Picts?

fabianchin 08-16-2011 03:36 PM

B_Cyrus Im thinking of a V8 to this car, getting a crushed bmw at copart and removing all the engine, wiring etc. it will at least take me 6months for something like that. and lots of $$$ because im always traveling so a friend needs to do it for me.

fabianchin 08-16-2011 03:39 PM

Lemonsqr it has the stock sedan 325i engine right now, they joined the exhaust. I dont have pics and the fuel canister all the back was modded also and welded, lots of work hours in the back. =S Im glad im thru this lol.
