Car:
M3 E92 AW/BB 6MT

Mods:
- HRE P101 Satin Bronze
- Akrapovic Evolution Carbon Tips
- Carbon Mirror Caps
- Black Grills, Fender Vents, Hood Gills

Future/Ordered Mods:
- Arkym Front Lip
- 3D Rear Diffuser
- Vorsteiner Trunk

Hopefully done after that...
Definitely have the mod bug

Looking good. I thought you had a butterfly decal for a second, but noticed its just something stuck to your cam lens.

Great start you got it bad Given that your budget does not seem to be overly tight you might consider coil overs instead of springs. Works out better on many levels IMHO. Keep the photos coming as you progress. Enjoy!

Thanks for the all kind words and advice guys! Will update with more pics once I get the next set of mods on.

Semi-Poor: Yeah, I am looking into coil overs down the road just dont have the funds atm but would still like to lower it, thanks for your input.

Dozaiya: The tips do look like they stick out far on the photos but in real life I think they look good and dont stick out much. I also plan to get a diffuser which will help make it look more tucked in.
