Women usually just love sexy looking cars, but couldn't care less about how it performs. My g/f didn't understand me taking pics while we did ED in my M3 either

I love 911's, as does the g/f, but she thinks they're "pretty." I'm like, do you know the specs on the Turbo S, GT3 RS, GT2 RS?! She's just scoffs

Im with you on the painted reflectors. I had them on my car for a few months and then went back to stock orange.
Im not saying that they look tacky, but it throws the whole front end off imo, like somethings wrong with your bumper.
Euro bumper would be a dream, but cant justify the cost at the moment.

Not quite. The emblem, louvers, and side gills are painted to match the gloss black BMW Performance kidney grilles. They can be had from a number of vendors on this forum like IND, EAS, JLeviSW, Mod Bargains, etc.

I love how you kept everything OEM.....

Great looking car.....

I would get smoked reflectors if I were you..... but Euro bumper will be ideal.....

I am also planning on getting Euro Amber Tails and a BMW Performance Steering wheel. Those are my next mods.

Car looks/sounds great.

If you're trying to get rid of reflectors, just have a good body shop fill and paint them. This can be done, and redone numerous times before you reach the cost of a euro bumper.

Don't do the splitters. I did them, and wish I didn't. The don't look that good. I like the way it looks from the factory.

Nice choices in mods.

Nicely Done AAJAMI.
BTW, girlfriends are never amused. My ex used to be jealous of my 'Ol E36 M3; especially when I call my car "BABY".

Yup. Here's the first shoot I did last year after finishing the ZCP retrofit:

Thanks, Mark. I don't know if I can take that crown with this beast rolling around North America. How about we split dukedoms? You can have Canada and I'll take the US.
