Looks good - is it the beginning of a full black-out?!

I really need to find the time to delete the chrome window trim - bought a superwrap kit but have failed to find a good weekend where i had time and temp/humidity cooperated.

Then it will be time for the black side vents and emblems - and then powder coating the 220M's.

I actually like the chrome trim around the window and top sections so probably keep it as is. I plan to buy a set of BBS LM like multi-piece wheels with polished rim and darkened center so polished trims should compliment.

If you need helpin hand when you do yhe wrapping, LMK and I can assist.

Btw, I just picked up a set of Apex EC7s with 18x10 square spec from a member. Also ordered a set of Michelin PS AS4s to run during wet and cold months which seems to be coming right around the corner.

Sounds like you are gonna accomplish more with your e93 in a month than I have in a year. The ec7's will look great!

I'm torn on the chrome trim - some days I like it and others I feel like it kills the sports car vibes. Wheels with dark centers and polished lips might be the perfect way to pull it all together.

It's still in the box wrapped up. I can post some tomorrow. In the meantime, it's Eisenmann Race axle back which I pulled from IND website.

I hear you. I do like dark all around setup but the convertible element somehow brings the best out of chrome with the top down. I was actually thinking about powder coating the ec7s but didn't see why I have to spend $600 to get them color changed (quote from local shop). I think it makes more sense to save money and put it toward BBS set. BTW, I am waiting for someone to sell used carbon plenum of some type on the classified. I picked up a afe carbon fiber dry intake but I have a feeling I'll want a more profound induction sound soon.

Just in case you didn't see other posts by Pat and me, I'll be at Pat's place this Saturday to install the exhaust and unlikely be at the C & C meet.

How often does the meet happen?

Appreciate the clarification. I will probably still swing out to C&C for a bit but could stop by and "help" with the install if you need extra hands or a cooler of beer…

It looks like the Cars & Coffee events continue into early Dec - see attached from their IG

Thanks for the info! I'll be brining drinks so why not unless Pat says no.

BTW, just found out my M3's color is Jet Black, LOL.

Received my new OEM front bumper tow hook today. I was hoping it wouldn't stand out too much but the primed material stands out so much I'm going to look for a way to paint it to make it blend in bit more. Ugh...
