Great car and build. I can't believe you ran no rear plate for 3 years!

I have this on my car and it appears that they still sell it. I'm sure your route is much cheaper though

Had the plate off to be in a booth for Bimmerfest so never put the plate back on. i carried the plates in the trunk in case I was pulled over for proof. Was only 25 bucks after I had one of my cop friends sign it off.

Beautiful car man, love where it's going. I had a chance to do that HWY 1 drive a few months ago and it was awesome, can only imagine it in a modded m3.
Oh and another Sacramento fanatic here as well.

HW 1 is a blast. I plan on doing it again once all the mods are done. Is your sig in the Sac State garage?

Yeah I don't take the M3 there to much. The 1M is the DD so you will see that there more often than not. M3 will be there on a occasional Friday.
