Malcon's M3 Build thread (updates IN thread)

Hey Gang. I'm in such awesome company on this forum, It feels funny starting a build thread... but I love to talk cars and share my own projects I figured I'd get my own thread going. I'm going a more reserved route right now with the mods. Mainly focusing on performance and less on carbon fiber.. Not because I dont want to, but because my budget wont allow that for now. So I'll cal this a sleeper build to justify that. haha
I just picked up this E93 M3 in Jan. I went with the E93 because I love the sunshine and driving with the top down. Its southern California for goodness sake!
anyway For the 8 of you who have read this far I thank you... on with the pictures... Keep in mind this is the beginning!

2011 MW E93.


First step... new exhaust. I tend to buy parts from other forum members. Building a car on a budget brings challenges. Second hand parts can be a huge money saver! I got this exhaust from a good friemd of mind. It was on his car for a good 1200 miles. saved $1000.

RPI. Love the sound.


Love the more aggressive look... and now you can actually hear the car.


here are some updates.
Wheels. Color match Mirrors... working on a nitrous setup. More to come!

Again.. these are just cellphone pics... Better pics coming soon!

Best of luck with your build, there seems to be no shortage of parts around here.

I love the white on black look.... I also like doing things myself. So I blacked out my trim and wheels, as-well as losing the front plate holder.




I'll eventually purchase different wheels.. most likely when I upgrade the brakes. Later...




Plugged the holes with some plastic plugs I got at lows for 25 cents... Had some pearl white paint at home. Not a perfect match color wise but you don't really notice.




I love the contrast.



sorry for the crappy pictures...
