Pics of my 2nd M3

Well, finally got my car back, (wife crashed the first one a few months back), and finally finished puting the goodies on.
I have never been a fan of aftermarket add ons. Other then rims and suspention work, I have never added any body parts to any of my cars, I found most of them cheesy, however I think this car needed something extra.
Most of it is usuall stuff, you have all seen it before. I think it turned out pretty good. The fact the car is Space Grey keeps most of it low key.

20x10.5 R 20x8.5 F Aiconas, w/Eibach springs
Vorsteiner front lip, rear diffuser, rear spoiler, CF kidney, painted side grills

hehe...I know.. what can i say..they look good, and thats why they are popular.
After I posted this I, scrolled through the pics page, and I firmly believe that every m3 out there has the Vorsteiner Front lip on it. It may as well just come from the factory...oh well, I like it.
On second thought, not too many people run Eibach...that's pretty original!

How do you like the Eibachs?? I'm thinking about getting some as well. How's the ride stiffness compare to stock?

It looks clean and not overly done. I would like to see a chop of painted kidneys to see them flow with the painted sides.

I chose the Eibach over the H&R because they traditionally have a softer ride. Unfortunately, that also meens they don't drop much. I personally did not find much of a difference in ride. Maybe 5%.
