A few brief photos...

...of my new '11.5 AW ZCP coupe. I had been contemplating buying a coupe for the past 5 or 6 months, and a deal finally came my way. I traded my '08 IB E90 M3 last night, and proceeded to mod the AW coupe a bit. Here are a few pictures taken with my camera phone (..I will provide better pictures soon).

Stock:





After a drop on H&R springs, BBS DBK LM's (..15mm TMS spacers in the front, 12mm MS spacers in the rear) and an Arkym CF front lip:








Big thanks to Tom and David at EAS, Malek for doing an awesome job dropping my car and installing the front lip, and Wheel Connection for balancing the front wheels.

congrats on the car! LM's are one of my all time favorite wheels, however that finish kills them IMO

The full DBK Championship Edition LM may not be for everybody, but I wanted something different. LM's are extremely popular; the current DBK face/polished lip/red center cap is what everybody has on their cars, and I didn't want the same look.

I feel that way about most of the modded cars on forums, but to each their own. I've received more compliments in the last day or two than I ever did with any other BMW M3 that I've owned (..modded or stock).

Painted reflectors + black grills will make a huge difference!

I may change the front/fender grills to black, but I haven't quite decided how I feel about them yet. I'm going to install a CF diffuser, new angel eyes and SmartTV soon. I know somebody selling a Vanguard titanium exhaust, so I may pick that up too.

Painted reflectors? I'll probably pass. I'd rather have the bumper area filled in and repainted.

It's the pictures! They are actually dark grey (..like the face of the current DBK LM wheel); the pictures makes them look like some hybrid black or something.

I've been posting more lately, but I hadn't been around because I had been spending A LOT of time on the Ducati and WERA/13x forums. I'm really big into tracking my bike now:















.....Damn, I'm thread-jacking my own sh|t!

Not in person they don't!!!!!! I'm sure that some SoCal members will see me driving around and report back.

Nice car, but I gotta agree with some of the sentiment here - looked a hell of a lot better stock.
