I know I have a tendency to do that from time to time...I guess it's dealing with dancers, sleepin 3 hours and takin a chem test for school. Non stop action! Haha
And thanks it came out just how I wanted it.

Car is looking good! I would have had less flare at the end of the extensions so that the tire doesnt stick out too much, also some more custom work on the rear bumper instead of just adding a piece. Other then that it looks pretty nice imo.

Actually my tires stuck out further when it was stock. I like that stance look that u see slot of suburu and other cars hAve. Those damn M/T are bigger than they look! Thanks for the positivity.

I'd be lying if the first few images and what not didn't make me nervously cringe. However its actually progressing quite nicely and I actually like it now. I think I'd ask that no pictures be sent if I was to have this sort of work done.. I'd have a panic attack mid way through... just show me the finished product.. I don't want pictures of my surgery!

Also, Taza does some pretty bad ass custom body work.. I thought originally that thats where you sent it as he's down in the LA area as well and has done some pretty impressive wide body's.

Haha yea, but actually I live 2 hours away so seeing the work done in person as it was progressing was impossible. They sent me pictures throughout the build to make sure it was to my liking. I provided them with drawings of how I wanted it to look and they hit it right on the money. I like the "not" so over exaggerated look. I told them I wanted it to look like it came off the dealership. Keeping it aggressive but clean...that's what I like. I'll post a bunch more pics when it's painted.

Updated pics look great! I'm with Taza on the rear bumper, also only other thing is the front seems wider then the rear, yes I know the m3 comes this way stock but that's what I hate about the stock m3 body, other than that looks real clean! I just dropped my car back off today at the body shop that did my wide body, might have them tie the rear quarters in like they did with yours but it might not be as easy with the GTR side skirts I have... Can't wait to see it painted though are you going with your stock color?

Yea I like that titanium silver, it always seem to look clean. The only color I would consider would be white, but I like how the polished lips look with it. Also I would have to change the color of the center piece of my wheels. I just wanna drive my car now! Haha. I needed to do something to the exterior and I neglected the idea for some time now. I'm happy with the subtle bodywork I have done with the hood, bumper, trunk, now it sits a little wider, more beefier. I'm good 4 now. Oh and good luck on ur car, I hope the shop ur cars at let's you see it and make adjustments while their doing ur project.

just got her home. I dunno if I like m/T tires too much. They have amazing grab, but the side walls are too square, blocky like. Any ideas on some more sticky tires? R888, ps2 etc...??? Ill save mine for when im gonna race. My friend has a shop down the street I can mount my M/T. Im tired and going to work
