The painting made a huge difference ! It looks GREAT !*th-up*

Stop staring at it already :eek: ... :D :D :D ... *mw*

So what springs did you go with?

I went with AROSPEED springs....a couple fellow bimmers have them and said they are good so i bought from the same guy i bought my rims from..... great quality ( dont be fooled cause they arnt Germen springs )

Some of you may know i got ripped of By RONIN a month back so i had to keep the cost down

Ride is like stock and the Drop is exactly what i was looking for
( i have to drive my baby in the winter too.... with snow tires of course )

I paid $350 to paint the skirts and eyelids....

I am looking into maybe changing my chrome grill to a blacked out grill......

What you guys think ? keep it chrome or change to blacked out grill ??

Wow what a difference! The painted side skirts really set it off! I think a carbon fiber grills and maybe powdercoating your wheels gunmetal will just set it off!

Good work & keep it up!,

P.S.: Commin' to Bimmercruize '02?

Your car has of a more Black theme going on, I say black it out, its gonna look real agressive. Make sure you use flat black and not shiny.

looking good buddy.*th-up* *wave*

just a few another little tips: M3 front bumper, maybe rear. M3 door mouldings. M3 mirrors and red clear taillights.

this is what mine is going to look like next year after winter. gotta save money for the house in the meantime. then once i move in we go back to finish the car.

what i need: Hamman HM3's, springs, M3 door mouldings, rear diffuser, taillights, mirrors, maybe x brace. and that should be it

Black & White - $40/wheel
Any colour under the sun & clearcoated - $70/wheel

To get this deal you have to go to the back of the factory and ask for Maria (plant manager). They take about a week to do since they are sent out to get acid dipped to clean and remove any crap/paint.

No. Take the tires and the valve stems off. All they do is just powdercoating. So throw on your stock wheels and get 'em done! I think the wheels would look very cool when they are finished now that your sideskirts match!
