four mods. ? more to go

1. Well I don’t know if you consider it a mod, but anyhow, I swapped the factory air filter for a Macht Schnell. I don't see any difference, and didn't expect too, but I'm sure the engine breathes easier.

2. Replaced the stock kidney grills with the matte black. I loved the carbon fiber kidneys, but after looking at many pictures I decided that the matte black would look best with my color.


3. Replaced the stock fender gills with the matte black. I originally wanted to use the monochrome M badges on the gills, but decided that I didn’t want to mismatch the badges throughout the vehicle.


4. Replace the stock chrome M3 badge on the truck with a matte black.


5. waiting for the carbon fiber BMW emblems to arrive…

where did you pick up the matte trunk emblem? I looked about a year ago when I got my car but I was only able to find matte E46 emblems. I completely forgot about that till seeing yours. Looks good!

I honestly don't like those because they look like you're pluging a hole. I do like the smoked ones though.

Okay nice...the CF roundels do complete the look. On an AW car it would probably look even better! Good job!
