After 1.5 years finally took some pictures...

Was drinking at a local spot and met a guy that does photography as a hobby. Took a 10 minute break to go shoot the car on the roof of my parking garage. My car is driven daily and is not babied. Its peppered with rock chips and hasn't had a bath in almost a month and he made it look great IMO so props to Tony Claremont! Its an honest M3 with tons of soul and I love it.

Haha thanks. After the first 20-30 its actually relieving because I stopped caring. Definitly will get a clear film when I get the front resprayed. Car is dropped on Swift springs and using 18F/15R spacers.

Great photography skills by the cameraman and nice looking ride, OP. Simple and subtle mods that tie together really well.

Yep that bad boy is looking sweet. I've got silver 359m's but other than that our cars are very similar. That side view profile is just awesome.

I came in expecting average looking pics at best after the story and then you mentioned dirty car...

Talk about being pleasantly surprised! What an understatement that is actually, the car and photography are absolutely stellar!!

SSII. I've always thought the car looks best in low light or directly under the sun.

Those are some awesome pics. Didn't expect anything like that when I read the title.

Makes me want to put my splitters on seeing them on your car. Mine are just sitting in my garage cuz I'm worried they won't survive through the winters here.

Car looks perfect !
Realy love the stance with the Swift/R Spec springs just perfect, I try'd to order them too but need a TUV/Approval for the yearly car inspection on here !
They are not available in Europe ,so i sent several Emails to the US vendors and the ansers are....we don't need such a paper ?
So damn , i would love to find a solution for this TUV/Approval !?!?

Do it! I think the E9x M3 needs either a lip or splitters to finish the front end. I ran without one for a couple of months, and when I threw my lip on there, I was shocked at how much more aggressive the car looks.

Ask ADV.1
All jokes aside, I'm not sure how easy that would be. I'd maybe ask members in California, they have the strictest rules in the USA. In South Carolina, we don't even have inspections, which makes going catless a no brainer
