Spotted this morning in Modesto, 3 series (not sure what year) white coupe on black rims with polished lip. It had a black hood but didn't look CF to me. Also had clear front corners butstock tails. Sounded like it had some exhaust/intake mods as well. I'd have to say this might be the first "official" moded BMW I've seen. Oh yeah, he had some angel halos on there as well. Anyway, as always I'll be keeping my eyes open.

Cheers,
Kyle

That's alright, I just realized that I swapped days off with a co-worker. I'm working Superbowl Sunday to get Valentines day off. Lets hope it all works out in my favor Since I don't really care about the Uberbowl anyway

Yesterday around 2:00pm i was helping my buddy fix his camaro (yeah i know) and we were running errands getting fuses and a new t-stat for him, and coming in the opposite way i see an Alpine White M3 with a Vorstiener hood, painted white only on the hoodlines. I almost **** myself.

Then later that day i see a steel gray M3 with a CSL Trunk, first one ive seen other then my own. Cleannnn.
