Beautiful - congrats.

Your hood is open, in case you weren't aware. It looks closed when you're standing over it - a little tricky.

Not so sure the hood is open. I think this is the famous M3 overbite. Need to play with the hood adjusters a bit.

I think you guys were right, the hood latch is somewhat different from what i expected.

Primarily looking to get exhaust, and a pulley system, nothing to crazy. One thing i didnt realize is that the kidney grilles are not black, looking to get those replaced and the sidevents replaced as matte black. Do you guys know any good sellers, since BMW charges just way too much or should i go for the alternative of plastidip?

IND for the grills and side vents.

Move quick on the Dinan exhaust and pulley.... on sale this month! (Contact Philip at McKenna)

Best of luck!

Congrats. It's a great feeling when you go to pickup your M and drive it
home for the first time.

Best color for an E92 iMO... that's why mine is also AW.

Enjoy it!!!!
