Got rid of my old motor mounts preventatively and this is what they look like. They have almost 77k miles on them:


They were replaced with brand new OEM ones for now.

Special thanks to the guys at BFI.

What's coming next:
- Hopefully a few pics of the M at BFI
- Oil change (Mobil1 0W40) and will be sending it to Blackstone. Will be interesting what the differences between 0W40 and 10W60 looks like.
- New spark plugs, it's been about 20k miles since I last checked
- Order side skirt extenders, reinstall CF splitters and Arkym diffuser
- Photoshoot early next year with local E39 M5 and E90 M3.

That's all I can think of for now

Pic of the car from the last time it was washed.


Here's a product I highly recommend. I used Optimum Metal Polish on the driver side exhaust tips. The RHS were obviously very dirty from soot and the car being driven in heavy rain. Completely effortless to get the chrome shinning. I'll definitely go ahead and use it on the barrels of the rims next time.

A different type of eye candy. Good looking numbers:

Absolutely love them, highly recommended. Don't plan on changing this setup at all. Just looking to do bushings eventually.

Sounds then you are satisfied with the handling improvements along with the ride quality? Going to be purchasing a set soon. Had them on my evo MR so I trust in their quality.

Both for sure. And the height is more or less what I'm looking for.

Bought myself a damaged Mode Carbon lip and wanted to roughly see what it would look like. I really like this piece a lot


Been wanting to learn how to repair with fiberglass for a while so here's my chance. It'll then be painted gloss black, along with my side skirt extenders that are sitting in my garage to match my Arkym lip. Then it's time for another photoshoot.

Another view of the lip.

So we got some snow in SC which is kind of unusual. This is the most snow this M3 has ever seen in its life. And I really do mean seen, not driven.



P.S. All the tools on the floor is what I used to do the spark plugs and I'm still not done

Couple of weeks ago, I gave the HRE's a good cleaning. Got my friend ADM5 to grab a few pics for me:






Need to do one more pass on the barrels, but these are so easy to keep clean (due to color). From start to finish:

It's a V1. I really like the GT4 openings, but it's just too low and stick out too far to the front. The V1 looks even better in real life

IMO the car could use some blacked out grille.
