Pics of my Space Grey E92 M3 | Enjoy!

I've had my e92 M3 for a few months now but didn't want to post until I got my wishlist installed. A black chrome theme on the wheels and exterior trim. OEM carbon splitters and rear spoiler. I know it needs a drop! I am moving to a new house soon that doesn't have a 45 degree angle driveway

On the inside I upgraded to the 10 piece glossy carbon trim (1x1 weave) including the center console. Also added the performance steering wheel (blue strip) with alcantara wrap and carbon trim. Looks really good but I will need to snap some pics.

Under the hood all I have done is swap in a Dinan carbon intake. I have a Dinan pulley kit and H8 6000k angel eyes waiting to be installed.

Last mods will be an exhaust and springs.

Hope you like it! Comments/critiques welcome

Great job, very clean car and mods! Yup, need interior pics next. And I can understand wanting to get the mods started before showing her off, I'm following the same path.

Only criticism- the colored stripes on the rear emblem? IMHO it'd look better with the standard color black emblem.

Interior pics to follow this weekend! That blacked out rear emblem was at one point the correct color scheme. Very surprised such a reputable supplier (who will remain unnamed) admitted the red fades to white. They sent me a replacement but why bother!? I would go OEM for $60+ but all these small bits and pieces add up. Just the gloss black exterior bits came to a few hundred. Jeez! And some people are throwing in superchargers

Yup, my model year is 2009 and I have a hard time going OEM on rims. Yours rock though! The OEMs are wider and a deeper concave. I also had to get 15mm and 20mm spacers.

Thanks. I knew something looked different. I like the ferric grey effect it has.

Next mod, black chrome exhaust tips.

I own a set but my shop said they'd have to take the whole system down to rivet them on. Same price as installing a new exhaust so I think I'll go with the performance version like yours.

I don't like those rims at all... I'm not sure if some wider tires would help or what, but if the car came with 220s or 219s those rims would look a lot better IMO. You should be able to get a set of used ZCP wheels with new rubber on here for around ~$2500. The rest of the car looks really good.

Oh, and use some chrome polish on those exhaust tips!

CF Interior

Here is an overdue shot of the carbon fiber interior. I'll get another shot with the performance (blue stripe) steering wheel soon.

The car looks great but OEM ZCP wheels would look 10000x's better!
