Guys, to each his own. Looks like the shop is doing good work, ride will look and feel brand new when you get it back.

Looks good. Out of curiosity, how did you do the side grills? Did you replace the whole front fenders?

no M3 badge...but M3 side grills (with the M3 logo)?

hmmmmm....

I saw a "dinan 3" badged silver convertible last weekend on the freeway - complete with ACS body kit and OEM front M3 fenders and M3 mirrors. As he passed me in traffic I thought "what a nice looking M3 vert... But on his trunklid, he had a 325 badge, and two exhaust pipes the left only....

To each his own - nice body work on your car

U should've ran up on the side of him and gave him the "wanna race" signal and laughed as he politely declined I think I'll get me an M3 and do a 325 look a like conversion...sleeeeeeeeeperrrrrrr

Looking good!
You should supercharge it though, TS not yet available for your car I think.
So you got some time left, unless TX2 suits you. 242 hp
Maybe we'll meet up sometime, I'll race you and claim win over M3.

I'm curious as to why the shop is doing a panel match going up and over the roof instead of doing a blend on just the quarter.

Not saying one is better then the other, though a blend would be safer as far as color matching.

I can't really tell from the pics but it looks like they did a butt weld on the M3 fender which is much nice then an overlap.
