1st pics of my turbo M3 on the road.....its completed!!! well almost



After spending the past few weeks doing nothing but working and then coming home to work on this car I finally got it ready for yesterday's BMW CCA spring car cruise down into southern Maryland. It was a blast and the hottest day of the year so far.

the hard work is paying off!

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

from today's BMW CCA spring tour for the national chapter. I will post up a bunch of photos from today, some awesome cars, great weather and beautiful locations and fun roads, cant ask for more!

tweaked the suspension a little more last night AND got my new seats installed...love them. There is a little more room to bring it down in the front, but I want to be careful with it...have to keep in mind there is a downpipe hanging low....dont want to tear that off!







no room for lowering here!



Corbeau CR1's are in...love these seats. Honestly, they are more comfortable to me than the Vaders, put almost 6 hours and 300 miles into these seats today and my back feels great! Could not say that w the Vaders. Important to get the optional adjustable lumbar supports if you buy these seats...big help.

Corbeau has aluminum insert rings for the harness holes...you guys think those would look good?

I'll get better interior shots sometime soon

I am going to need to call you up for help when I get my E46 M3 in a few years. You obviously know what you're doing. I'd love to learn from a guy like you. I checked out your other threads and damn, you didn't leave anything untouched.

Absolutely pristine.

Seats look amazing. I don't know where you found the time to get them done in the last few days! 4-6 hours sleep?

yup thats original paint. If you would have seen it when I bought it.....well lets just say there is a huge huge improvement. I spent over 13hrs on paint correction alone so far.

Sniz, you said it was original paint and that you have spent time doing "paint correction"....would you elaborate on that please?

Pretty much what I am wondering, is how you took care of minor dents or scratches or nicks, stuff of that nature...because the paint looks flawless.
