Cool Onnex's Build Log

**If any companies wants to sponsor my car, I'm all ears **

Just thought I would start up a thread detailing the built of out of my new M3:

2011.5 M3 6MT
Jerez Black w/ Black Novillo, Carbon Leather, Convenience Package, Cold Weather, Premium Package

Main purpose is to get some feedback as things progress and probably bounce ideas as I explore different options as I build it out. Feedback/ideas/constructive criticism all very much welcome! This is going to be a long build, so this car has a long way to go and I value people's input along the way. Most people get bitten by the mod bug, but I got swallowed alive. I'm a designer by trade, so I pay attention to all the details of how to make this car look best in my eyes

thanks guys! Getting the bumper test-fitted/adjusted and then painted is looking to be more costly than i expected tho. Talked to C & C– awesome people over the phone, and heard nothing but great things about their work and the people there... but you certainly pay the premium for their work based off their quote. And then K & W fully blew me off after having 2 pieces painted there– no thanks.

Anyone else have any recs for a body shop good with FRP in the LA area?

Thanks Tom! What do you have on now? And how did yours hold up with scrapes and what not? Im on RD springs as well, so I'm thinking clearance might become an issue and never had an FRP bumper... tough to crack them?

Here's the experience with the Amuse front bumper from our early journal thread: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showpos...&postcount=272

The amuse front lip hangs low, coilovers and driveways aren't the best scenario - so you might need to repair every so often.

I'm running the Challenge GTS lip now, without the undertray panel:

my bank account doesn't thank you. Not sure I'll ever do the cage, but some red recaros would looks pretty sick. Once my OEM seats go to crap down the line, I think that might be an excellent call.

Lets see Recaro seats... it's on the board!
