Greg,
I love that 2002 -- I bet you wish you still had that. Every time I see one in Inca Orange I wonder what the E92 M3 would look like in that color.

I will be at cars and coffee on Saturday for anyone in the Portland area who wants to see it.

I have found Rasmussen to be an excellent dealer over the years; I bought my latest from Scott Bradley, as well, and Pete is my regular service guy.

Best looking E92 I have seen. My dad had a Dakar Yellow E36 M3 back in the day and I absolutely loved the color. Turns out I still do.

Call me crazy but I think that these untouched photos showcase the car and color better than the fancy shmancy photoshoots..


Beautiful color and accessories though. Those HRE wheels are extremely aggressive.

Never thought Dakar yellow would look this good. The 18's are unique and look awesome.

Well, you have to give him credit for carrying the black and yellow theme through consistently. I might have kept some chrome, but it looks well thought out and not a piecemeal project. The choice to stay with 18s is notable, and I look forward to talking to him about that tomorrow. I know 18s are more race-oriented, but this car is almost too nice to take on the track!

I wasn't sure about the tinted tail lights at first either, but now I am pretty sure I like them (only about 20% unsure ). Honestly when I look just at the tail lights, I am not in love with them, but I think overall the car looks better with them.

I saved the original tail lights in case I ever decided I didn't like the tinted ones. I can swap them out in about 20 minutes. I also saved all the original chrome trim. Later I will probably post some pictures of the car at interim steps in the mod process and some of those pics show the car without the tinted tails. I will be interested to hear which people like better.

I wonder how it'll look if you left a bit of carbon showing on the trunk. I'm certain that you just started a new hype.. this might be the new white on black theme

OK, which do you like better? These might not be the best pics to show how the overall look is affected by the change, but I think it is all I have.

With the tints ONLY because of your DY/Black theme...

The Brembo brakes were the most exciting shipment to arrive. It is just amazing to open a box of Brembos and see such high quality Italian brakes. The quality is amazing and they look great on the car. I love them!
