Probably minor things like black side vents and smoke or painted reflectors for now. I am also considering getting the wheels powder coated.

Further down the road probably a cat back when I have some extra $.

Thanks! Black is terrible right now in St. Louis because of all the salt on the roads and the general bad weather we have had.

Those tires will be replaced in the spring. I plan on doing some DEs. I'll have to travel now that Gateway Raceway is closed. Their infield track had too many scary walls anyway

For sure! They are on backorder from EAS for a week or so. I'll definitely get pics.

The RX-7 was like a go kart. Fast as hell but very obnoxiously loud, stinky, uncomfortable, and unreliable. Pretty much the opposite of the M3!

500 RWHP was fun though...

Congratulations on the M3 and nice choice of mods. That black grill and sides are almost mandatory because of how good they looks against Jet Black.

I just popped in my AngeliBrights. And by popped in I mean struggled for three hours trying to fit my hand in there and get the things locked in. After fabbing up some tools with vacuum hose, some needle nose pliers, and a coat hanger, I finally got the right one on. Then after bandaging my hand up I tackled the left one. That took 5 minutes.

Pics to come when I get some good weather. Snow again here in StL.

I've dropped transmissions in less time.

Thats what I get for not having tiny hands.

Congrats, but it's M3 - amazing car.

In my opinion:
- Clean +1
- Black paint +1
- 19" Wheels +1
- E92 +1

How many miles did it have, it looks flawless in the pics you've shown. The previous owner might have been a "cheap ass" but looks like they took pretty good care of the paint.

Well it depends on how you look at it. The car definitely has scratch marks and some rock chips on it. I probably notice them more than anyone because I've been staring at the paint from around a foot and a half away while I Zainoed the who car hahah. The car has 44,000 miles and is in damn good shape considering. Interior is immaculate also.

I just had a professional detail job that did a lite orbital buffing and a quality wax job. Then I went over the whole thing with Z6 Zaino spray.
