Stunning. Was in two minds to put a alpina or m3 bumper on mine but now my minds made up. Alpina it is.

Do it, do it! I personally think it fits the lines on a non-m much better than the M3 bumper would. I'm 100% satisfied with my choice

Stunning car and excellent photos! I am very envious. I am curious how it would look with OEM LED tail lights and a lower suspension setup.

Oh and I know it's not OEM, but have you considered a trunk lid spoiler?

Yeah I'll get to the suspension in the spring, I think. If I were to do anything with the trunk I would probably save up and get a CSL replica from one of the sponsors. I don't really like the look of that spoiler and have no way of affording an OEM CSL trunk

beautiful...

It's beautiful. Not over-complicated, but the little details lend character.
Good photo work too, especially good shadows and highlights on the side interior pic.
You ever think of selling her, my number should be on your list.

Now that I look closer, You need to wax the front bumper insert/grill. It looks darker than the lip. Also get new reverse lights/trunk. They don't match the new ones. Other than that looks perfect. That interior is hella clean

window trim

Did you replace, plasti-dip, or just paint the chrome window trim? It seems appropriate to go all chrome or none at all.
I presume you just picked up a blackout grill and replaced the chrome one?

Good to see this bumped, good timing considering I just pulled her out from storage! Thanks for the kind words all... I've got a few more things in the works, got my H&R cup kit ready to go on, along with new front and rear shock/strut mounts, OEM shadow line trim, and perhaps an OEM M3 rear spoiler

The silver part you mean? Yeah, I'm sure it could use a good wax - too lazy to really get in there most of the time. I'm not sure what you mean on the reverse lights the corners/rears are all OEM clears. And thanks man, I try to keep it spotless inside (obnoxiously so, if you ask my girlfriend)

Cheers! No plans any time soon, but who knows...

The front grill is from Khoalty, and I did the chrome window trims with shadow line vinyl. I've got an OEM M3 shadow line set waiting to go on though

Great taste in the Alpina lip. Mtech2 side and Rear completes the look. Maybe throw in the Aplina side decal that follows the line of the car? Kinda like the AC Schitnzer one.

Nice looking car! I have the same genuine lip as yours on mine but thinking of selling the lip and bumper and putting the msport one back on.
