Maybe I missed it, but do you have the vid of your jump?

I'm not gonna hate on your ride, as you seem to be slowly turning it around. Its definitely not easy to throw money at visual mods when so much maintenance is required. If you have the time and skill, start DIY'ing a lot of those things and you'll have tons left over for visual mods.

Personally, I think a clean ride with less going on is much nicer than a busy ride with a bunch of cheap mods. The M-tech will look nice once painted.

I do have a video but i'm at college now and the cd of the video is at home. I'll try to upload it to youtube during thanksgiving break.

Thanks man.

I do not have the skill but I wouldn't mind learning. The problem is that where I live the streets are not flat at all and I have no where to work on the car. I used to be able to drive it up onto some ramps to work on it but now it's too low to do that.

EDIT: also I don't have a garage or many tools :/

I have a lowered sports suspension that comes stock with the sports package. I'm fine with how low it is now because winters can be pretty fierce here in Germany. I'll lower it next spring!

I'm thinking either the same graphite color that you painted on yours, straight black, or the same silver grey color as my car. It'll do until i get some rims.

Do the graphite! It's a great color, much better than black imo. And it'll look black most of the time if you like the black look

I got it for about $130 if I remember right. I got it from a member of this forum. Keep an eye on CL or the classifieds here and you'll find a good deal

I'm also using the "whoooty method" to sand down the rash and refinish my e46 m3 reps. Tried regular gunmetal for starters but find it too similar to initial look so going to go darker.

I sprayed this one without sanding just to see the color, needs to have rash rubbed out too...

so are you just doing more coats of the gunmetal? That pic makes them look like a good shade to me

I'm not sure... I'd love something darker that is not black... But kind of hard to find anything that different. Sort of tired of black but the black metallic looks sort of good (see test patch below. Then other times I get the urge to try all kinds of crazy shizzle, lol, obviously. It's fun to have options since you know you're about to strip anyway...

So i'm a little worried about Khoalty

I ordered my LED smoked corners on august 2nd.

I received my order on august 6th.

One of the corners didn't work and I was in constant contact with Khoalty over email.

They said they would get ahold of Depo and have them send me a replacement.

I have been continuously bugging Khoalty by asking when it will arrive.

They keep saying it will. It is now september 5th.

They have gotten slower at responding over email but maybe they are just more busy. Either way I hope it arrives soon :/

khoalty has terrible customer service when the customer actually has a problem. i took them 4 weeks to ship out 1 replacement angel eye ring to me. They also lied and told me it was shipped on the first week when they never even went to the post office. be careful with them and goodluck
