2011: ModZombie changes up the BanHamR a bit...

Decided to make some changes for 2011 to renew my mod bug..... We'll see what the future brings. But after 7 years of being daily drivin' I still love it and think she is good to go....


BimmerFest 2010:





2011 brought on some new shoes:

VarrsToen 1.1.2 's. 19x8.5 ET 34 (235/35/19 Nitto 555) in the front and 19 x 9.5 ET 33 (265/30/19 Nitto 555) in the rear....





Then came the rear...... OEM M3 rear bumper, CSL diffuser and dual exhaust from resonator with muffler delete....















Then came the hamann/hagus mirros...

Jason (MachRc) approves







BimmerFest 2011









Thanks for looking

Dislike mirrors. Put back the OEM.

Then just paint the window trim black.

looks great! I love the rear but maybe you should paint the trim since the m3 bumper doesn't have it.

I have been rockin' the elephant ears for far to long, time for a change.

I have been back and forth with the window trim. I actually like it, matches the lip on the rim and breaks things up. Maybe I will plasti-dip them and see how it turns out.

Bought them from a forum member in LA

Thanks. Yeah, that will probably be the next thing. I will probably vinyl them.

Thank you very much. I actually don't rub that often, only on deep dips on the freeway and occasionally in and out of steep driveways.
I have done pretty extensive work to the fenders, cut/shaved, rolled and pulled.
I wanted m3 mirrors, but didn't feel like modifying the base plate. I got a really good deal on these mirrors, so I am happy for now.

Not going to lie, I would not want to do it again. It is a lot of work. Old body brackets had to go, new brackets and new mounting closer to the body. Shortening the bumper shocks by an inch..... Just a lot of tweaking here and there. I still need to adjust it some, but I won't be able to until I go to a 255 tire.

Not a fan of the mirrors. I'd say go with OEM M3s.

But damn I love the wheels/tires/center caps/rear/diffuser/and kinda the exhaust.
