A Showroom Motorsports & AA Collision Collabo: Pics of My M's Mini-Transformation

Hey Guys,
Since summer is right around the corner, I thought it was a great time to change things up a bit and go for a new look. While I do appreciate some of the crazier builds on here, I decided to keep mine relatively mellow and go for the clean, understated but aggressive look. Showroom Motorsports & AA Collision have pretty much documented the entire build for me, so I thought it would be cool to share pictures of this "mini" transformation. I hope you guys enjoy!

Before I continue with the pictures, I wanted to take this moment to give a huge shout out to the guys at Showroom Motorsports (actually they are a new sponsor on here), whom provided all of the parts for this build and arranged for all of the bodywork/installations with their affiliate shop AA Collision, and of course Vic and the crew at AA Collision for their top notch custom body & paint work. Vic in particular went above and beyond by keeping me posted everyday on exactly what was being done to the car, something I have never experienced before from a body shop. He was also extremely knowledgeable, constantly explained all of the processes to make sure I understood what was going to be done, and his attention to detail was superb. He definitely made sure that everything was 110% every step along the way. Showroom Motorsports + A&A Collision = WIN!

As you will see below, my car already had some of the basic mods installed prior to the start of this stage of "build". The current modifications include:
-CF Front Grills
-CF Side Grills
-CF Hood Vents
-CF Mirror Replacements
-Blackout M3 Badge
-Encore Innovation Titanium Exhaust
-20" HRE 540R (my fourth set of wheels in under a year!)
-Painted Reflectors & Other misc. minor mods

Some of the upcoming modifications include:
-Vorsteiner Front Lip
-Vorsteiner Type 2 Rear Diffuser
-Vorsteiner Double Sided CF CSL Trunk
-Customized Front Bumper (Shaved license plate holes & reflectors)
-New 20" Custom Built Rennen Modular Wheels (specs to be revealed later )
-Lowering Springs (unfortunately won't make it in time for Bimmerfest)

***Since my car is the Showroom Motorsports "project car", it will be featured in the Showroom Motorsports/Rennen International Booth at Bimmerfest, so stop by to see the finished project in the flesh ***

















I will be getting the links to the other updates shortly...
