I love this car. IMO, you should do the hood and rear and it would be complete. Beautiful build.

Ambers on a black car almost always look better imo, it just gives it a much nicer contrast. This car is an inspiration to us all. I was just discussing in another sub-forum how much I hate the direction BMW has turned and how I really don't like their newer offerings... maybe one day I'll do this to my ZHP instead of buying a new car

looks good. I would fix the rust where the hood pins go into the radiator support.

I think I passed you on Sunrise Valley a week or two ago. I was going up past the golf course and you were coming down the hill.

Very cool. I wish I could put one of those into my car, life would be so great!
All you need now is a nice little intake to make that thing roar at WOT.

I'm sure you want to keep it sleeper status but if you were to put on an AFe or a Simota (if it can fit the sedan properly) you would be amazed at the difference in sound. They are both pretty quiet at normal cruising speeds and under 3k RPM, but if you floor it the sound is incredible.

Love the wheels as well!

It was hilarious though, after the 3rd run this guy gets next to me at 60mph cruising and tries to have a discussion. I only heard him say that car's not normal and then I started laughing. The guy was talking alot but I couldn't understand the only other thing I did was him asking about my exhaust. It was too funny. I've also run up against several other cars and left most of them wondering wtf just happened. I don't street race though it's just when the opprotunity presents itself I'll give it a go.

Also recently switched back to OEM ambers all around to increase the sleep stat. Loving this car as a DD, drove down to the beach and it's just as good on multi hour rides as it is on my usual short DD work.







what is that?
whats a sleep stat?
