Alpine white E92 journal some go fast, some cosmetic.

Figured I would share my Fourth M3 with the board.
I've had a BUNCH of cars. This is my second E92 with boost.

I had two E46 M3s.

Previous to this car, I had a 2012 GTR. Very fun car all around. I'm sure I will have another one someday, but at this point I was looking to lower my auto debt for fun family outings.

On to the new to me M3.
2009 with Fox Red Extended leather. (I love this color combo)
It does have a sunroof. That is honestly the only thing I would change.
It came with Active Autowerke supercharger, some kind of blacked out kidneys, LED halos and another shift knob/boot that I already removed and sold.

I've added Front spoiler lip, Rear lip Spoiler, Shift knob and boot from LeatherZ, Agency Power axle back exhaust and I have Swift lowering springs that I need to find time to install.

Shot when I first got it.

I'll get more pictures as I come along.
I've got a good friend that dabbles with auto photography (See the GTR picture above) Hopefully I can drag him out for some pictures of this car.

I've got the interior trim pulled off and it's at my buddies place getting some hydrographics put on it. I'll throw some pictures up of that when it gets done.
I am planning on wheels in a few months. Stay tuned!

Here are a few updates.

Got a couple of shots from Daniel while it still sits stock.

The trim was aluminum, but I felt it needed some carbon to the mix, so I gave my buddy at THC Concepts the task of hydrodipping them with Silver Carbon. Came out great IMO.

This was a couple of weeks ago at Wannagofast Clayton GA.
Was there to spectate, not run.

I've got the headlights apart right now to install some LED angel eyes and the mid-pipe is getting the secondary cats removed.
I'll post some pictures of the headlight mods if there is any interest.
Thanks!

Do you have a shot from the back seat to see the whole interior left to right? I'm wondering what the trim pieces look like a little further away.

Appreciate it. There's a reason I keep coming back to these cars.

Thanks a lot. I knew I needed to stick with a silver color. If it were anything else, but aluminum starting out, I wouldn't have thought it would have went so well together. So glad the idea in my head worked out.

I was able to pick up the mid pipe yesterday after getting the secondary cats removed.

Got it installed last night before bed.

The headlights are coming along well. There is a lot of cutting, fitting, repeat to make sure everything fits perfectly.
Sure takes a lot longer when doing in the evenings after work. We have been out of town every weekend this month and for the next 2 weekends as well.

Thanks for the props everyone.

Here are the foggy pics. All from my phone. I don't remember the last time I got out my D80. Phones take such good pictures now-a-days, it's hard to justify going to get it.
