That is beyond perfect, and more like a factory made m3 sedan.
I wanted to do m3 sedan, but later on things changed and I went with fenders, panels, bumpers, and hood.

Bump.









Offtopic: Anyone know what wheels these might be? I'm taking a liking to them, and consider something similar.

Great update! I would definitely fill-in that m3 front fender badge and keep it looking like a sedan!

Thank you. I will be picking up side gills today, but m3 badge will have to go.

In case someone is wondering why it looks like rear door is welded shut, here is explanation. The gap between door and 1/4 panel was filled with paper and then body filler was applied over door and 1/4 panel. Once surface is smooth, the body filler over the gap will be removed. This way the 1/4 panel and door will look pretty . My dad's idea, I would never think of this for sure

Don't do it! Great work so far, but the side gills will ruin in! Just fill it in.

I am pretty sure that BMW planned sedan e46 M3. The plastic pieces align perfectly.

Disclaimer: If you think that m3 (badge, sign, text, etc) should not appear on non-m3 bmw, I am sorry. If you are really concerned about it I will be glad to buff out M3 text on the liners.

Progress update.
Driver side 1/4 panel is almost ready, but driver's fender needs some more work
Passenger 1/4 panel turned out better just like passenger fender.

Some video
Driver side: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cuuf2gk5bq...2011.33.08.mp4
Passenger side: https://www.dropbox.com/s/khe69oou2d...2011.33.39.mp4
