Well if you think like that, then just keep your car stock. Because everyone has done either supercharger, exhaust, rims, and other things so you are bound to at least copy someone in one way or another. That's what I thought too before I started modding, and when I saw the naked girl on his plenum I wanted it too. its not copying. obviously not the exact same image but something similar. its your car. do whatever you want and enjoy it, who cares what people think. Do it for yourself, doesnt matter what ppl like or think. Peace

You're absolutely right. I meant that i wanted to do that same color combo (GT3RS style), but I got beat to it haha. I should have restated what I said. I'm still going to do it because it looks so good. cheers!

You are implying I would give preferential treatment to 135i which is certainly not the case, though I doubt you will take my word for it. In fact the 135i is long gone since 10 when I lemoned it.

Like I said people's usual reaction is look at someone's history and trying to reason that person's behavior. What if I left nothing on car list and you bring up 135i, which seems completely irrelevant to the case at hand, as it should, and out of thin air. Right?

Furthermore If I put down Honda, people will say hater, jealous of BMW and if I put down Ferrari people will say I am snob and condescending. Try to stay objective. Instead of attacking the person making the comment, try to either defend the product or proving the comment itself is incorrect.

I can't get over how the rear fitment is...
You guys are doing it right!

The Varis GT Wing is super aggressive looking and fits the car well.

OH MAN! You guys have me hating so hard right now. This car looks sick. I've always wondered what red TE37s would look like on SG, now I know, they look perfect. Congrats on the great car. Keep up the good work.

The car looks great, like the direction of the build.

Would I have gone that far with the car on parts, no, but that does not matter because it is not my car. I probably would have stayed away from the SC and wheel size if this was a track car only, but since it has a hybrid purpose, sure, go ahead, it is not my car.

The cheaper side of me keeps chiming in saying, for how much all those parts cost plus install, would a GT-R been a better choice? (I know it is blasphemy to say this on a BMW forum- I do own an M3 and love BMW, but I am sure the flame suit should be put on anyway) It would not have been modded probably like the M and would have just been another GT-R in the crowd I guess.

a gtr would be a fast car too but an m3 with RWD would make a very fun track car. so depends on what you want. all out speed or more 'fun' factor? i'm not a professional racers so i know i would pick an m3 for the track rather than a gtr, mostly for the fun factor.

Shit, whenever I log on I always make sure to look at this thread first...

Really sick build.

Wheels complement the car's color very well...
