2011 Silverstone II E92

I lost my jet black M3 in some Houston flooding a few weeks back, and now that I've worked through all the stresses associated with having a car declared a total loss, things are getting back to normal.

And by normal, I mean I've got the mod bug again.

The last car was pretty stock, save some aesthetic modifications.

(Full thread/shoot here: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?p=7796248)

This car is still pretty stock, save some aesthetic modifications, though I've got plans for Dinan goodies.

I spent a little while driving around this morning, just looking for a decent place to take some pictures. As a disclaimer, I don't know how to use my camera

Here's what I ended up with:












Criticism welcome . Thanks for looking!

As for MSR, I had a rough/late night... I don't think I was up in time. Haha. Next time!

Very nice. IMO CF capped side mirrors might go well here.

Stay dry!
