Never actually introduced my car to the forums...

Title should've said never.. brain fart.
So I realized I never actually posted a pic of my car and felt like she deserved it since she's brings a smile to my face every time I press that button. Here name's Kim.

Drrrrrrrrrop! Also, if that was my car, I would powdercoat those wheels gloss black, but that's just me Or maybe even gunmetal.

Do not drop aggressively. Go for Eibach springs. I shit myself everytime I have to go to the city for work.

M colors are a nice touch on the kidney; I've only seen that from the pic's on the THE TECHs car, stands out nice.

I wouldn't drop it and def wouldn't paint the wheels black. It looks perfect as is IMO.

There's quite a few folks rockin the grille stripes. I saw it a some years ago back in my e46 M days, still like it to the day.

Its probably the only successful way I've seen to incorporate the ///M theme into the car(besides shift/parking brake boot stitching) that works.

Welcome. Car looks perfect. I would not drop it or black the wheels- I think it would lose the classy yet aggressive look that defines an M3.

Look like crap.

J/k Gorgeous car dude. I have a question, how is it that you are new to the forum and you have a nice car decked out with some mods. Usually people join the forum first and then start modding/buying the M3
