New JzB e92

New update (04/01/2012):
Just finished up washing and waxing her since I think the rain is done for a while. And just got new wheels for her as well. Next in line will be a drop, then it'll be time to save up for some coilovers, big brake kit, and eventually a supercharger (I hope).

Also just this year, I was able to take the car out to Buttonwillow a few times. Hopefully more track days will be coming up soon.







9/17/2011:
Just picked her up last Saturday. Clear bra'd full hood, front fenders, bumper, headlights, and side view mirrors.

Just changed out the orange reflectors for iND paint matched ones, keyhole delete, and AiB v.4. Probably going to go for exhaust now, but there's just too many to choose from. Window tint (50%--mainly want heat rejection and slight privacy) might be done next weekend after the service is done (Hit 650 mi yesterday, and will be adding probably 400 more next week).

Planning on setting aside a few hours every weekend to keep her clean. Just ordered the Meguiar's Complete Car Care Kit. The rear bumper gets dirty after a 15 mile drive, it's crazy!

Jerez works with the silver rims nicely, the last picture makes the M3 look very classy

Enjoy it

Transparent Bra in Walnut Creek, CA. There are some bubbling that didn't go away (the material is porous so some small bubbles/liquid does leave). They stand behind their work, so they came out to redo parts of the bra (1.5 hour drive for them). They won't stop their work until you're completely satisfied.

I already got my money's worth too from the clear bra. After washing the car I discovered two scratches on the powerdome that could have very well ruined the paint!

Akrapovic slip-on (for now) just installed. After hearing Alek's full exhaust system... I definitely will be back sooner or later to get the rest installed.

Will update soon hopefully with daytime pictures of AiBs and video of cold-start. >=]

Crazy how I'm almost at 2,000 mi already after just three weeks.

Just got back from a roadtrip to Yosemite for the weekend and had to do a quick wash--didn't get a chance to tackle the wheels though. Offroading has never been funner in this M. Enjoy the penis drawing haha. I was fine with people drawing on that portion because of the clear bra.

Short video from 2 weeks ago of the slip-on.
Akrapovic Slip-On

And some extra pictures with added spacers (18rear/15front):


And where she sleeps at night:

Just hit 3,500 mi. This car is way too fun to drive--need more miles!
