Will, I think you have a minor mod addiction. If you don't get it under control soon, you will end up like Jay

BTW - the splitters look great on SSII.

James, you mean an addiction to minor mods or a minor mod addiction? Probably the former rather than the latter!

I think it works both ways. Currently you are satiating your lust for mods with a plethora of minor mods. However it is this practice that is often considered a "gateway" behaviour in to larger and more serious modifications.

I can't wait to see your car with a BBK and a whistle.

LOL. No BBK or SC for me. Probably no exhaust either. I'm pretty sure a P-car would definitely come before major M3 modification! Besides, a young family and mortgage always takes priority over my toys.

Awesome. I have those exact tires/sizes on my Advans right now and I'm thinking of switching it up to LM-r's. Any rubbing? I rub slightly on 1/2 lock up front and hard bumps out back as AD08s are big for their stated size.

The fronts rub the fenderliner on the track, but never on the street. The rears rubbed on a little fender tab which I rolled back and now have no problem with. I previously had RE11 in 305 and had no problems. Although the RE11 are wider the AD08 is extremely square shoulders so caused some problems.

My first ///M Spring 2004 after daydreaming for days on end

Will do here is my Spring 2004 babe in front of a friends house in Vancouver before driving across the Rocky Mountains home to Edmonton. I am still kicking myself why I ever listened to my wife and sold it only she complained of traffic jams in our drive way.



SOLD to a lucky Fellow in Ottawa, Ontario Canada spring 2010

Fast forward to Sumer 2011 ... my second ///M3

after some bad decisions of getting a e85 Z4 then a e89 Z4 ... finally back into an ///M3 a real car here she is this past summer.



This was my basic M6 transmission M3 2011, I traded this car in for a fully loaded 2012 e92 M3 LMB since the car in this picture was a basic and had no iDrive.



This for a brief time was my M3 with MT fully loaded until I traded her in for a DCT new M3 wife wanted to go to one car, then changed her mind LOL so no more trades now for a while anyway.
