Either way though, the car looks sweet and you're going all out on it. If you're going to go all out on something, do it with taste which you definitely are!
I initially bought an E90 thinking I would actually use the back seat and the rear doors would come in handy, long story short 6 months go buy I never even opened the rear doors lol so I decided to go all out on the interior and adding a cage was just something I have always wanted to do.

Although I am not specifically building this car for the track the car will see some significant track time.

Rear door delete! The practicality and doors of a coupe with the body of a sedan. A reverse 6 Gran Coupe, if you will.
