Well I guess I'll join the drooling on your interior. That is so beautiful. I love the Black and White look, Ive been looking at doing a matte white wrap for mine so I can rock that look for a while, but after seeing yours I should just give up now. There is no way I could come close to it being that clean!

To be frank, i never digged white (this ain't AW btw) coz in my country's weather with the torrential rain and generous amounts of bird poo, its highly challenging to keep the whip clean.

My methodology is: Clean my ride bout 1~2 times a week hosed down with just water and dry esp rims. once a mth, do DIY shampoo, polish, wax, sealant and every half / once a yr send for prof grooming.

Worked pretty well for my prev e46.

The paintwork for the vert when i took over was less than a yr and it was good workmanship so totally wasted to repaint the body. Slowly but surely white is growing on me thus I believe from where u reside, cleaning shouldn't be an issue. Just go for it man, wrap job is soo much cheaper anyways.

While my vert is at the workshop for its 100,000 km servicing, made a quick collage of pics in my spare time. Inspired by DTMdan's COTY threads.



Awaiting patiently for my new mods to arrive!!!

Thx bro!

Knobbie was retrofitted by the prev owner and it lights up. Unfortunately, the panel light does not, so gotta get it checked out. There are a couple of m3 knob retrofit DIYs on fanatics and it involves prying open the transmission panel to route the wiring so just gotta search diligently. Most e46s and e60s have done this mod to great effect. Happy trying!

The 100k servicing revealed worn radiator sobz. And so the maintenance and mod saga ensues...

Update:
- Fixed up passenger door lock handle (it was tight as hell, super embarrassing when picking up passengers and they struggle to open each and every time haha).
- Gear knob panel lighting all on finally
- Reinforcing the connections for my front bumper
- Rectifying my marginally warped rear rim.

Ambient temp thermostat still pending a fix.

Got a great deal on this pair of babies and had 'em fitted on!!! Excuse the dirty slotted rotors.

Stoptech 4 pot front set BBK, calipers resprayed to alpine white. was a tough choice between yellow and white but decided to go with white in the end. Gonna be tough keeping the calipers squeaky clean lolx.

Can't wait to do another photoshoot when time permits...
