Missing a few things, but I like what you've done with the front.

side view mirrors are a must. and don't listen to half the people here, the majority of the people on this forums have done some sort of mod to make their cars look different to their own liking, i personally do not blame you for giving your car a touch of M3, but please do the side view mirrors. gl and enjoy the car, you're in san jose, don't get robbed for your car! i was there 3 years ago!

Looks fine. Just get a matching rear bumper and side skirts. Most people don't notice the side skirts but for some reason they're the first thing I look at -- probably because they're the last thing people will think about.

You paid $2,100 for that body work? The only difference I can see is the replica M3 bumper.

I don't ever recall seeing a post made by you without you being an absolute cock.

So the car was painted after the only things done were the replica M bumper and fender work? M3 conversion complete!

Although I would never even consider doing something like this in my lifetime, I understand why you did it. You need to finish it. You need the side mirrors and you should have left the side vents off cause of the position of the side blinker is in the wrong spot for an M3 look and the rear fender flare doesn't flare as much as the M3 ones do, unless it's the picture. No matter what your happy and that's all the matter and it was a good job done. It's sure is unique.
