LOCATION CHANGE for BMW Individual Meet & Photo Shoot

ATTENTION EVERYONE : LOCATION CHANGE

Due to the increase in attendance we are moving this shoot to :
The public parking structure directly in front of (and adjacent to) the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles.
This is not the Walt disney concert hall's own parking structure, but rather a separate structure facing it.

We will be meeting on the Top Floor of that structure.


NOTE: there is a chance that there might be a parking fee there. I'll try and do some recon to see whether that fee applies on sundays. Bring a few dollars just in case.


Here is a map of the location:





Individual Cars in attendance
  1. Dakar Yellow (esquire)
  2. Monte Carlo Blue (eclipsis)
  3. Fire Orange (courtesy of Nick Alexander Imports)
  4. Titanium Silver (guardodoc)
  5. Laguna Seca Blue (lagunae92)
  6. Brilliant White (big lare)
  7. Frozen Gray (possibly - via Golffrr)
  8. and many other non Individual BMWs to serve as points of comparison in photos

Modifcations #14 & 15 - IND matching keyhole, IND full gloss kidney grilles

Hey all,

One thing I've wanted to do all along with this car is keep its look very cohesive. Tiny little details here and there can add up in your perception of a car's overall appearance which is why I decided to make a few tiny and perhaps even barely noticeable modifications. That is unless you're a real M3 enthusiast.

IND's matching keyhole cover was the first step in that process. It's something almost no one would notice, but I just liked how it kept the car's coloration uninterrupted. Simple mod, cost me practically nothing. Thanks to IND on the flawless color match on this.

The next modification was also relatively knit-picky. I previously had settled on BMW OEM Gloss Kidney Grilles. What I wasn't completely in love with about the OEM piece was that only the edges were glossed while the slats came matte. But since many of my car's details were in gloss black (shadowline trim, carbon fiber roof, piano black interior trim, side markers), I felt it would be more cohesive to have a full gloss kidney grilles up front, which is why I asked IND to make me a set. Again, small difference here, but really goes a long way in making the car feel more cohesive thematically. I'm very pleased with the results.


Anyway, here are a few pics. Next mod - Vorsteiner Bootlid.

Modification #16 - Vorsteiner Bootlid

There was one piece I knew I wanted even before I placed my order for a Euro Delivery Dakar Yellow coupe. That was the Vorsteiner bootlid. From an aesthetic stand point it was exactly what I was looking for to set the car off visually. Well, after a long long wait, the piece finally arrived.... and here are the results....

First of all I love your car!

Second, I enjoyed how the transition pictures of the trunk also included the addition of the black zcp wheels.

More Pictures!!!
