My Humble Transition - "The Daily Driver"

A big thank you goes out to IcyJ for taking the time late into the night to make these amazing shots happen for me. He does not do this for a living nor does he have the luxury of an arsenal of professional gear... His work bleeds his love and passion for cars and photography. God bless the kids' got talent I think you all would agree

Little over a year ago I had the opportunity to pick up a mint 08 and have not looked back since.. Whether it be simple as driving to work or short grocery runs.. this car never ceases to remind me why all of us enthusiasts chose what could possibly be the very last NA M3 with this beastly V8 under the hood (Minus rod bearing stories and Longwong oil threads )

Slowly but surely I've been able to transform her into the car that I've always drew up in my mind... I understand it may not be m3post.com's most proven and praised combo of Volk / BBS + Challenge / Vorsteiner / M Perf. but I believe this is in fact the essence of modding and that is for everyone of us to enjoy individualizing our own beloved cars in the way we ourselves are happy with... Sourcing some of these parts was a PITA but at the end of the day self satisfication justifies all

Everyone on this forum is what makes owning and modding the E9x M enjoyable... Soaking up the knowledge and experiences shared on this forum has been nothing but inspirational

And without further ado..

Car looks great! Congrats.

What kind of lip is that? Actually really like it and haven't seen it before. Very subtle.

That lip is sick and the car looks fantastic. Thank god it's not the m3post-bbs-challenge-vorsteiner combo. I'm so f'n tired of that same ole crap over and over again. Modding is supposed to bring out the individual, and you have done it. -says the guy with the bbs lms and the challenge diffuser lol.

This is a CF front lip from Garbino Japan (1x1 weave and I had the leading edge of the lip body matched for contrast).

Heres Prodrive Japan's E92 M3 rocking Garbino's full bodykit:

One of the tougher parts I had to source but it was my dream front lip for the M and I was going to exhaust all options in trying to get it

This cracked me up entirely

And I hope noone takes this the wrong way... I love Volk / BBS / Challenge / Vorsteiner / M Perf. just as much as anyone else here

From one Sgraph owner to another, that is such an amazing example of a cleanly modded E90 M3!!

Absolutely love it! List of mods would be awesome!
