2swift's M3: After 6 Months, Finally Some Pictures!

Just like many members here, I jumped from an E92 335i to an M3...and loving every moment of it!

Here's some pictures of the old whip:





Here's the M3 I picked up in mid December from Steve Thomas BMW :



And finally, here she is 6 months later:













Mods listed in my signature. Also, thanks LTBMW for some of the installs!

Enjoy!

Fresh! Always a pleasure to see something new!

Typically those wheels would look boring to me but on the car they look fantastic.

did you request your stock 18's to be that color or did it come standard? I'm hoping mine come in gunmetal.

Thanks guys for the compliments/feedback! I'm glad everything came together nicely as well. Looking to put more mods on in the next couple of months.

I'll definitely try to make it out. Glad I sent you that PM to get things going with Ryan...I appreciate both your help!

I've had the exhaust for almost two months now and was my first time letting someone drive my car while I stood outside. For some reason, it sounded twice as good lol. The AA exhaust rocks!

Yup, was nervous putting them on and wasn't 100% sold on them at first. It started growing on me the day after as the compliments/feedback kicked in haha. I love them now...the classy look, fit, and finish aren't bad at all.

My wheels came like that standard. I actually expected them to be gunmetal too...oh wells. Make sure you check with your sales guy.
