Frozen Grey Performance Build

After 4 months of waiting, I finally took delivery of my e92 Frozen Grey M3. After owning 2 Porsches (996 GT2, 997 GT3.1) I have decided to return to my roots and grab the car I've always wanted, The M3. Leaving any of my cars stock has never lasted long and this car is no exception. The modification plan is based on products that will alter the cars characteristics (both mechanically and aesthetically) to my personal driving preference. The information and super honest recommendations gathered from the awesome members of this board, (namely IMG and Aleks D of Alekshop) made this build experience above and beyond what I initially expected it to be. Huge thank you to Brian Cano of Rallye BMW! Pics and details will go up as the parts come in and installations progress. The first pics are of the cars as it was delivered to the dealership from the transporter. The latter pics are of the car as delivered with the custom powder coated wheels and oem gloss black grill.

Much more to come. Enjoy!

I wish you had gone gloss with the black powdercoat. Matte paint looks so crispy with gloss accents all around it. Beautiful car. Congrats!
