Simple/Slow TiAG Build

So got this car couple months ago since I wanted to get into Euros. So far it has been good, did all the necessary maintenance along with some aftermarket parts. Really love the forums cuz there are quite a few members here who have been helpful with me. I do my builds simple, clean and daily driving friendly. It might not be everyone's cup of tea but just sharing my progress. Thanks for looking and apologize for the crappy pics btw... Big ups to Mike aka Painterdude, M3enna, J4SON, DTMdan, GunMoto, E46 ZHP, and SennaSixty8!

When I first got it



Then got OEM M3 sideskirts, hood and tail lights, ACS style roof wing, wrapped window trim





Up next was a Rieger lip... Didn't really like how the sideskirts didn't line up with the front lip. (front lip lower than the sides) Decided to sell the M3 sideskirts. Along the way I met Mike aka Painterdude and got my lip modified



While waiting I got some OEM M3 mirrors, painted bumper reflectors, black kidney grills, DEPO corner and signal lights


Then BC Racing Coilovers and stripped the wrap for the window trim



Cannot decide of what type of wheels to get so went with this M5 replica for now. Couldn't say no to the price with good tires $200. Somewhat dialed in. Waiting for my Turner spacers for the rear. Unfortunately fronts are at the lowest setting. Happy with it either way, pretty comfortable ride for daily!




How the lip came out. Awesome job by Mike aka Painterdude. Front lip and OEM sides line up now.




Things to do:
Paint front lip
Paint MtechII rear
Install exhaust
New wheels
More maintenance lolz
Upgrade system
DRIVE it daily

Great progress so far! Wish I had M3 sideskirts and a hood.

Excellent job on the hood fitment.

Mine still sticks up a little on one side. Never got around to shaving the lip
