Orange fever NEW PROJECT ( E90 M3 ) STAGE ONE

Traded in my other e46 m3 and picked up an 08 e90 m3 jet black w/ black interior and CF leather trim, OEM 18s, M-DCT, Premium, and Tech.




The first thing I did was get tint at STM Advanced Window Film Solutions http://www.clearcutadvantage.com/
and went Huper Optik Ceramic the entire car with Huper 50% on ws and Huper 40% complete all around .
Hann
STM Advanced Window Film Solutions, Inc
2464 W. Washington Blvd
Los Angeles CA 90018
M.213.216.8087 / O.323.732.9100








Next, I headed over to Tanabe (thanks to David @ Status||StatusAutoWorks.com
925 Van Ness Ave||Torrance, CA 90501||(310) 618-8886

for hooking it up) to get springs installed. The springs are similar to OEM in terms of ride quality and similar to H&R's ride height.
M3's stock height. Ready to install and test the springs!

On the Lift :

springs installed! Looking great:


Matte black grills/gills from Jo@Eurodyne are going to be installed when I have some free time.

I have some pretty big things planned and you'll have to wait and see what's next!

I think he meant he traded his OTHER other M3, not the awesomely orange one in that picture. At least I hope that's what he meant.

what tires do you have on the car? Are those the stock Contis? I can see they are not PS2s.
