Jet Black M3 Progress Thread

It was about time i made a progress thread. So here it goes.

I have an 2001 6 Speed M3 Jet Black on Black with Piano Black trim. Car has Navi (the older one), Cold weather package, rear parking sensors. Pretty much loaded for an 01. PO upgraded the braking system to the ZCP brakes. He has also put an AC Schnitzer Muffler on the car. Otherwise car is all stock.

Wow, the angle eyes look great, did you get just the angel eyes DiY kit from Khoalty or the actual Halo Headlight casing with HID kit, etc.?

I love black coupes and the style 95's. The gills are a bit on the rice side though.

Interesting idea, I was thinking of changing the theme on my car. How do you think the amber will hold up on tailights?
