Paging M3 owners

Hello M3 Owners,

I am presently building a computer 3D model of the E92 M3. Early days still - you can see it progress here:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=114153

I have an E92 335D, so have references for many things ... but after having a good look around here (some great ref pics ) I am still lacking a few specific reference images.

Could anybody help me by supplying some detail shots of the alloy wheels and a straight on shot of the alloy ? Also a shot to show the different dish from front and rear wheels ? A good close up of the bonnet vent, main intake grill and wing side vent would be very helpful too.

Thanks ,

D.

Grabbed a few hours and started to model the alloys. Please bear in mind this is VERY early in the modelling process, they will improve. I am just "sketching" the basics now. There is an interesting interior to the M3 Alloys, wheel spoke thickness, cut-outs etc. which I have still to add.

These are ONLY for preview. I am using a multiple symmetry and array method of creation and am perfectly aware that there are not 10 wheel bolt holes. But there is method in my "madness" It will be totally accurate later.

Thansk to all the reference pics I have refined my alloy wheel. Still some more modelling to do, a bit of smoothing and then I have to do some tricks to remove half the bolt holes ...
