    Got the car back about two weeks ago. Just thought I'd share some pics of what was done...The CSL trunk, front, and rear bumpers need some minor adjusment but nothing major.

    BEFORE:

    AFTER:
    CSL front
    CSL trunk
    GTR sides
    M3 rep. rear
    ACS rep. mirrors
    Roof painted black
    LM reps.
    CF kidneys
    Side moldings body matched

    Previously had: Rogue DMS exhaust, Shark injector, UUC pulleys, Benfer intake, CF pillars, M3 steering wheel, Carbon fiber door pillars, carbon fiber gauge trim, silver gauge rings, + random things here and there.

    After posting the pics i noticed that the paint looks off for some reason in some of the pics:dunno: , just the shitty camera I'm using. Matches fine in person...Just thought I'd share.

    Next is suspension...H&R cupkit

    why didn't you just save up and get an m3? need the 4 doors? hope you plan on putting a blower of some sort on there to give it some power to go with the looks...

    The money spent on the car is no where near the price of an E46 M. It's a 325i, not gonna get much power out of it. It's got exhaust, pulleys, intake, and is sharked. I'm happy with it as is, it's a sedan and I don't track it at all, or race around town from light to light, really no need for a supercharger (on this car at least).

  14. It's not like he riced it out or anything I think it looks fuckin sexy. It's clean and if you don't want to do shit to the engine then don't because at the end of the day your car still looks hot.

    WTF hole in the bumper? If it's for performance, what's the point since that's not what you're going for?

    Never said i wasn't going for performance? just said I'm not going FI. Its got a reflash, pulleys, exhaust and intake which if you look through that hole, is just on the other side...Look up the BMW M3csl, to see the function/setup of the "hole" as well as just about everything else on the genuine csl, which we (the US) will never see.:wtc:
