Cool **My TiAg M3 Mod Progress Thread**

Ok, some of you may know that I bought a Titanium Silver M3. This car is stock, nothing but stock. Well as some of you know from my last car I like to upgrade things. Thought I'd document them as I do them. Pictures and changes to follow. For those that have followed progress of my last car I hope to continue to do a modest clean look and nothing over the top.

"Release the Hounds"


Yep that's right, still has the ambler reflectors in the bumper

Notice the special ordered no sunroof

Cloth and Black Leather M3 seats

Brushed Aluminum trim and Tri Stitched Wheel

Stock down to the Wheels and No Tint....for now
