Thank you guys! I really adore this car. Looks absolutely ridiculous when it's clean. Unfortunately, it hasn't been washed in almost 2 months

Thanks! I live in Greenville. Depending on what you are looking for, NC might be a better place to look for cars (if you are really picky that is). They have way more choices. The good news is that you are even closer to Charleston than I am. Love that city.
I really want SSII but im open to other colors if the car is in great condition. Seems like there i no bad color for this body. Lighter is better IMO for contrast but after seeing yours....

Not much to update. Added OEM ZCP's and just did a whole bunch of maintenance. A few pictures from a Sunday drive event:




Love the last picture. The F30 is Mineral Grey, just shows you how similar it is to Sparkling Graphite.

That's awesome. We sold my wifes SGM 335i and bought a 13 Comp Pack M3 in Alpine White. I thought briefly about looking for an SGM 08, but I wanted warranty and did not want to have to scour the earth. It is the easiest color in the world to keep clean. Looks Great

Your car is sick bro!!

Those wheels are perfect for the Sparkling graphite, one of the cleanest M3 I've seen! Oh and I still hate you and your Bamboo interior!

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Love how the ZCP's tranformed the car from 220M. Went from elegant to really aggressive.

Hoping to do test pipes, stage 2 tune and new muffler next. Also going to DIY contrast stitching on my shift book and e-brake boot in Bamboo Beige. Figure it's worth a shot.

Some cellphone pics from meeting forum members this morning. Not a usual sight around here, that's for sure

A few pics of my car from a weekend drive. The rest of the pics from that day will be uploaded in another thread

You can see the current exhaust setup, Borla S-type.

Good friend of mine grabbed a few shots of the car at night. The color looks almost bronze because the street lights had a yellow hue to them. I think these turned out fantastic, just wanted to share:

Full catless, with 2 OEM resonators left in with Eisenmann Race. Sounds like a completely animal! At under 3k RPM, the car sounded similar to my old Borla setup and was very manageable in terms of sound. Step on it and the car sounds like this:

A whole bunch of mods on the way:

- LCI taillights
- CF spoiler
- CF Diffuser
- Swift-R springs
- BPM Servotronic mod

Potentially pulling the trigger on BC Forged HB04. Gunmetal face with brushed silver lip. 19x9.5F, 19x10.5R, maximum concave possible.


Stay tuned!

Swifts that much better than B&G? I hear good things about both and the drop on B&G is perfect. Then again 14 days to wait is not that long.... just seems that way to people like us lol

Still got a few things I need to do (yes yes, I know it needs a drop), but wanted to show the HREs:



Just a couple of cellphone pics for now. Will drag my friend out to do full photoshoot when I get a few more mods.

No, just no. IMHO the stock chrome grill looks good and goes well with the color. And it's refreshing to not see black kidneys on here.

I do like the wheels, congrats.
