Well the day I have been waiting for, which seems like forever, is here!!!!
I picked up my newly painted E30 M3.
6 months after some reversed their truck down the side of her,
4 weeks in the paint shop & $5856 later it is finally done.

It looks very Henna in the pics, but it the digital cam that make it look like that, as it's Brilliant Red.
I'll have to take some with my normal 35mm and get then scanned.
It looks so much better in real life.
Enjoy

Yes they are, you guys don't seem to have them much over there, so I get lots of comments when people in the US/Canada see that I have them.

Who ever ordered the car liked his toys as it's just about got the lot.
Headlamp wash wipe, beam throw adjusters, Electronic damper control, Electric roof/ windows, heated electric mirrors, Leather, heated washer nozzels, A/C, rear headrests, big OBC, and that's without all the Evo 3 parts that have been put on the car :)

The pics really don't do the car justice, it's going to look so good when I get hold of some Zaino :)

Now time for a tasteful drop in ride height..haha*th-up*


I not sure about dropping that car as it grounds sometimes over here as it is.
Plus I like my EDC, and what with it being such a rare option and an expensive one it would be a shame to throw it all away.

So I might just get the shorter Evo III springs and some shorter spring hats and drop it a little that way.

Very nice car man.

I like the drop the way it is
i would only go lower if you got larger rims.
i think all e30m3's should get bbs rims like the dtm m3's

Basically you get what you pay for and most of the money goes into stripping and preping the car for the paint, this is where it has to be good as if it's not prepped well it will show in the end result.

Thanks for your comments guys, I'm glad you like it.
I'm just glad to finally have it back:)

M3Pilot,

Your pictures look good. I have been looking for a good digital camera. Which camera did you use for the pictures? Thanks.

My mate was nice enough to lend me his one. It was a Fuji.
The pics came out great and it wasn't even at the highest res :)
