Needs more aggressiveness (more low and wheels fitment), but I am very confident that changes will come. Nice color and ET FTW!

Love the color. Interesting idea on the bumper. I'm surprised it fit. Any other agressive, angular parts in the works?

Looks bad ass. I don't know what every one else is talking about.

Maybe more aggressive side skirts and a rear end to top it off!

Looking forward to see more pics!!!

That bumper is horribly out of place. Paint looks good though.

love the color. kind of unsure about the bumper. looks cool but at the same time doesnt look like it flows well with the rest of the body.
post some daylight pics from different angles.
its unique regardless though, so props to you for that

Something is off...I think it needs a little line like the m3 bumper has. Nice work though.

Glad you're back Walt. I need to see this thing in person. Pics I'm sure are not doing it justice.

love the 1M bumper but it doesnt quite look right on the e46 chassis. flows better on the F80 M3 or M4 concept

Looks like the body shop sprayed the bumper grill body color too.

I'll be honest, it does not look good at all. The good thing is, nice choice on color, and you can revert back to a e46 m3 bumper easily. =)

Couple more. The pics do make it look awkward, it was just to do something different. Going to keep it for awhile, than may move on to something i've been searching for. Grille is not painted body color, grille, and ducts are OEM 1M.
