From Frozen Salt & Pepper Back To Alpine White

Between a good coat of brake pad dust and a track day in the rain, my M3 looked like it was it was some sort of Frozen Salt and Pepper colour, as opposed to Alpine White. I managed to squeeze in a full detail over the course of two days (and a ton of yard work). I also managed to sneak out and take some pictures this evening - if the girlfriend asks, the restaurant lost our take-out order and I had to wait for them to make everything.

Thanks! I owe that to Andrew@IND. He talked me into a more classic look, I was originally going to do some ///M stripes on one side.

The Alcons are a fantastic setup. I'm surprised more people aren't running them. The TCIII are nice wheels. They have more clearance than my TE37SL, which is why I use them on the street.

My girlfriend thinks we are gay for posting pictures of our cars online! She wants to know if we are in love with our cars?

Thanks, but not to worry. All of the mods are finding good new homes to forum members!

Thank you! I tried to keep it simple, and it turned out exactly as I envisioned it. It's back to stock now, and these are the only pictures I have to remember it now. Hopefully the new car will make me forget the M3 quickly, but I somehow doubt that.

When its called M3, you don't need to give it any other name.
