Newbie from UK saying Hello

Hi All

Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself on the forum.....Have been lurking on the forum for sometime but thought it was about time i signed up. I have owned a e92 M3 DCT in Frozen Grey with Competition Pack for the last year and have carried out quite a few mods to it during this time including:

Akrapovic Evolution Exhaust System | Evolve 'Stage 2' Remap | AP Racing BBK | Technocraft Envy Dry Carbon Induction Kit |BMC Air Filter | Intrax Springs | Bimmec Spacers 15mm Front & 12mm Rear | Carbon Front Splitter | Carbon Rear Diffuser | Carbon Kidney Grill | Carbon Bonnet Vents | Carbon Side Vents | BMW Performance Carbon Wing Mirrors | LUX LED Angel Eyes | 360 Forged Spec 5 CF 20" Alloys |

Prior to this have owned two e36 M3's and two e46 M3's as well as a Porsche Cayman S and a Porsche 997 C4S....Must say the e92 is my favourite car of all time...

Thought id include some pics of the car as it currently looks.















Thanks
M

Thanks.....i know the wheels are not to everyones taste but when you see the car in the flesh the carbon fibre spokes of the alloys go really well with the rest of the carbon fibre theme i have gone with.

Nice. What make of splitter is that? I'm in two minds as to go for BMW's own, but not sure if the look would be enough for my car as there is no centre piece. They're also quite pricey for such small pieces.
Really liking yours!

Bob
