The 'new' turbo M3 is taking shape....BBS/Corbeua/Vredestein/etc content

Thought I would share this with you guys as many of you saw me go nuts on my 'old' 335...might as well share my excitement with the new project as well.

on a sidenote....i'm down for running any local 335's to see where this car stacks up, at this point, i'm just not sure.

==================================

oh boy oh boy oh boy

after getting the car back from AtSpeed motorsports after getting the head reworked and a Vibrant cat installed in the downpipe (thank god...no more stink) I had to start working on the new parts I've had sitting around. Its been gone for a week, and in that time I've been stockpiling parts :redspot.

1st up....new Corbeau CR1's in black leather w lumbar supports. These things are beautiful, light, and are really comfortable w/ the optional lumbar supports. These aren't installed yet, but i'm planning on getting the driver seat in tonight :buttrock. Need to hit the junkyard w/ Mark tomorrow and pick up some seat belts to add on to the supplied brackets. My vaders are already sold so I cant grab the buckles off of there.





still searching for a good upholstery shop thats local to get the motorsports flag added like this:




Next and even better..........the fully recleaned and sealed/wheel waxed RCJ's w 265 Vredestein Sessanta's.....just beautiful. Check out that fitment!!! I havent driven the car yet w/ these on....praying for now rub. Otherwise the fenders are getting rolled even harder than they are already.



no chance of a finger fitting in there, biggest tire thats going to work on this fender



passenger hasnt settled since it was jacked up to swap out the style 5's



MEAT!



New kenwood Excelon head unit w/ bluetooth, sirius, and a 100gb hard drive in the glovebox....waiting on 3 preamp wires to run to the trunk for amps the its getting installed.



new headlights and fog's, both with 6000k HID. BTW, I have ZKW's w angel eyes that will be for sale soon...PM me if interested.



18 button computer ready to get retrofitted



and finally, spent a little more time detailing the engine bay




Looks like i'm pre ordering an Aquamist HFS-6 now and will trailer the car down to Florida in June to get a custom meth tune for it from NickG.........F yeah!

Should put the car around 480-510whp on pump at that point. I'm hoping i'm done w/ power at that point, but I doubt it.




ok, thats all for now...i'm excited, sorry for the long post.

Thumbs up

Sniz- you win! You're attention to detail and dedication are really paying off. Looking forward to seeing you post a photoshoot when it's done! I might go so far as saying...it's def got magazine feature potential. Stop Tech BBK on its way? LOL

ps, you gotta edit that sig, it makes me sad...

I can't believe you fit the 265s. I was worried about putting on 255s so I stopped at 245s. You better believe I'll pick up some 265s next time and roll the fenders.

What size wheels are your rears? Looking sick though man! congrats on everything.
