Thanks peoples, the rear is the same though, just repainted. The rear lip is a rare piece, so unless it was damaged beyond repair I wouldn't change it.


I like the black car Brad. The green is nice, but too much of a sleeper. Black is gonna be sweet once its fixed up. And I like the gold side wheels on it better

Oh and my front roundel sticker flew off on the interstate this morning I got a new one in reserve though just needs to warm up a little and it will go on. Also pulled too far into a parking space and broke both my plexi splitters right after I saw Brad on the interstate SO I will be making new one and getting them on before the meet. Not been a great start to the new Year, but it could be worse so whatever.

BMW wiring is so odd. Maybe because it's german...(yeah pretty much).

Hey I saw this sick green BMW that was so hardcore about saving weight that let his epoxy on his CF hood start to peel off...



ohh wait... haha sorry brad. Stopped by Racewerks today and had to.

So info for anybody needing an inspection soon, white turns and they will fail you... stupid bullshit law. At least I use my white signals where everyone else with ambers dont but they can pass atleast.

AND if your rear shock bump stops are bad you better replace them before you go, cause those fail you too. News to me.

Funny thing is they wanted me to pay 300 to replace everything to pass inspection. I did everything for 45 dollars and a few hours of my time. Freakin' robbers

Why not just use bulbs that emit amber?

Good cause that's exactly what I'm looking for. I told John at Racewerks my exhaust preferences and that's what he recommended. It's always good to have an extra opinion though.

Thanks man

I just ordered a new trunk locking mechanism from Jeff... Hopefully that is the only part I need to get it all working.

Now, for a new stereo. Man, these freakin M3 stereos are balls for aftermarket upgrades. Even the BSW stuff doesn't cut it. I want to upgrade the amp in there, but they still haven't come up with a solution that is as clean as their speaker kits are. WTF?
Go full aftermarket... its the only way to get good sound.

White housings can't fail you, bulbs I can see. A lot of new cars come with clear housing/amber bulbs.

Love how they look for nonsense wrong so they can try and rip you off.
