M3 Weight Loss Surgery

My car was at Alekshop today getting some weight loss surgery. Nothing major as this car will still be driven on the street, but enough to complement what's in this car's future. Just thought I'd tease a bit.

Very nice.

I'm taking it that you weighed the car prior?

Nice. It'll be good to see the overall weight loss once your upgrades are finished.

Typically a DIY job, interested in seeing what Alexshop will fab up in terms of the rear seat delete.
