Nice! Honestly, I like the 18inch beyerns more then the 17 inch wheels. The 17s just look too small Great progress tho! Wish the roads in jersey were nearly as flat as the ones where your from.

Very Nice!!
How hard was it to install the rear bumper on? Did you do it yourself?
I really need help on this.
Is there an official DIY M3 oem rear bumper install on non M?

I did it myself, not THAT hard. Modify the brackets on the car so they go inward.
Either shorten the bumper struts that hold the reinforcement bar


or buy the M3 CF bumper reinforcement like I did. (Thanks Asmod3us!)

sexy but you took off your splitters? Thought it looked a lot better with the splitters

Edit: If I were you i'd throw on the splitters, black out your headlights and get black grills. But that's just my opinion Very sexy car either way

Great looking car but stop putting money into anything else until you can get the paint on your bumpers and skirts to match. Yikes.

^ you may be experiencing issues with your monitor color calibration.
I can recommend some good tools to fix that.
They match perfectly as they're all OEM paint.

Unless you're talking about the first front bumper I had, which yes did not match. That's why it's gone now. Now either you didn't read between all the pictures or your internet failed to load some.

I'm really not trying to dog ya here. But the paint probably is OEM and that's why it doesn't match at all. It's clearly not faded to match. Possible my correct monitor gamma out weighs your denial? But it's really obvious. Maybe not from afar. Other than that. Great car. Except the wheels

All seems to match in person, and I'm pretty darn picky about the paint, also considering you're the only one who ever mentioned it.

Exhaust is put on, not sure I'm digging the tips, CSL diffuser coming soon. (Dirty car)

Eh, I'd say there's a fine line. I don't have any M3 decals, I'm not doing M3 fenders, not trying to sell the car as an M3, I don't even claim it's fast when people ask! It's low, and it's slow.

E46 FTW :p
