Having room for 5 and fold down rear seats made this the easy choice.

I have a laundry list of mods which include some very expensive items so decided to start slow and work on the interior first.

Still on the fence if I want this car supercharged or left in NA form. 2/3 of my cars cars are NA and I really seem to enjoy them more than the supercharged car for some reason.

I know I want these things but still on the fence about wheels:

a) BMW Performance Seats with matching rears upholstered
b) Brembo Brakes in Yellow
c) CF sideskirts
d) CF hood nostrils
e) Dinan Intake
f) Custom stereo using Focal/Hertz/Audison and JL
g) Got some really trick LED upgrades planned too as with all my toys
h) New Shoes....BBS or Advan?

here's a few shots of her sitting around waiting for UPS to bring the goodies next week, stay tuned as this build gets fun

NSX is extra special to us since my wife and I got married in this car! (see picture below)

Actually I really wanted a speed yellow m3 but that was not to be....we actually have three s2000's including one which is my wife's red one. Also have a hybrid and a pair of SUV's not shown.

I love white with red seats I guess:


but the most important reason for the M3 is not for performance but rather to share the fun driving experience with my kids:

There's a set of BBS F1's and LMR's for sale now in the used section.

Looking forward to your build.

So in the interest of safety and stealth concealment (window's are tinted) here's how my main V1 unit sits in the car. Will do the wiring and the rest of the front system next week but turned out quite nice.

(clear un-obstructed view of the front and rear of the car and full adjustable, no holes or permanent modification)

Weekend flew by and didn't get much work done but finally got the V1 hardwired so at least that is one project I can check off....hehe

I ended up moving the remote display to a different spot and love it more in this m3 since the windscreen feels larger.

What do you guys think?
