My Ride: E46 M3
Well on Sunday I went over to see Dips of Custom Cars to have my window tints removed and fitted with 35% tints, much lighter. When they went to remove them we found out that the car had been fitted with 2 x films all the way round so no wonder it was very dark.

Here's a few pics from Sunday,

looking very dark...









All tints removed



And the new ones being fitted



















Cheers thanks for looking

I love that front lip of yours. I know it's custom made, but I still want one!

Well iv now left the windows to settle correctly so over the last couple of days I decided to give the old girl a little TLC and wash her.
As a few already know Aaron my 13 year old is camera mad and takes pics at all the shows and he came out wanting to take some pics of the car with the new tints fitted, so here they are.































Thanks for looking

Well Steven aka, Nevets sent me a present today and I fitted them on my wheels to carry on the colour theme.

Cheers mate, like always top quality. Sorry for the dirty car but it was to hot to wash it today.

Hurray for the sun, boo for not being able to wash.





Very discreet and I like a lot, thanks again mate.

Well quite a few updates have been going on over the last couple of months.

Coil overs, 18" split rims, brighter angel eyes, depos, straight through exhaust, custom bonnet and a few more bits.

Here are a few pics hope you like...

Well firstly the bonnet.. We started with this...







Thanks to Steven aka Nevets and Raj aka Fullhouse for the decals to allow Dips to do his magic...



Dips then filled all the edges as he didn't want it looking un finished..



Nearly finished...



At Rollhard we found a pinstriper and he just carried out the finishing touch to the picture.



Then another change was the wheels.. 18" Alutech 2 piece split rims, 8.5" front and 10" rears (These are not ACS)

From this...





To this...








Tinted fog lights that I haven't taken pics of and HSD DT coil overs...

Here are a few pics from Rollhard and Players this weekend.

Rollhard...







Players..







It kept drawing a little crowd.... lmao..



Thanks for looking

Kudos on a job well done. Your car looks amazing. I do have one question. Does the UK no longer require front license tags? I notice that your car's front is free of the number tag, and the bumper has no obvious mounting point. When I lived in London (albeit many years ago), they were a required pox.

Thanks for the kind words buddy, yes they still require no plates and when I drive it on the road iv got a quick release one that I clip on.
