Well, it's been awhile since I last posted, so I thought I would post an update on my car. A few weeks back, I ran into some bad luck. First, my car ran into some problems, then I got pulled over--> cop was an ass, but whatever. He got me for a alot of stuff, one of them being my tint, so I had that removed. And to top it off, some lady decided to crash through my garage, resulting in a cinder block wall collapsing on my car's front end. Needless to say, my front was ruinned. So I took this opportunity to give it an updated look.

So I ordered the new Rieger CS bumper to replace my original Rieger bumper and lip. They only make it for the M3/coupe/cab, so I had to have the shop retro-fit this on. I also took advantage of the time my car was in the shop and had them paint my chrome window trim black. Here are some updated pics

When the lady crashed through my garage...

Thanks guys :)

Eurostyle... You have no idea how pissed I was. You park your car in the garage thinking it's the safest place for it, then you wake up one morning to that :mad:

The people who live behind my house decided to pave their backyard a few years ago. What happened was the lady from that house backed up her car to turn it around and leave. Then, she THOUGHT she put it into drive to go ahead and pull out, but she didn't. It was still in reverse. She freaked out as soon as the car reversed I guess, lost control, and just plowed right through my garage wall. Thing came down on my car. Good thing I had a shelf against that wall that preveneted most of the cinder blocks from completely destroying my car. :mad:

Wow I hope you gave that bitch hell....

But anyway I think your car looks amazing, That bumper looks much better than before. And your car is a big improvement.

The insurance covered the cost of my old Rieger front, and CF lip. Both got cracked from the wall falling on the car. The crack on the bumper is fixable, but the insurance offered to buy a replacement bumper and lip. So I just decided to get Rieger's new bumper since it was a bit cheaper than getting the original one I had and the lip. I'll be putting up my old bumper, fogs, and lip for sale once I get it repaired. The black trim I got done outside of the insruance claim. That was seperate, but decided to get it done while the car was in the shop. All I need now is mirrors and I'm set :)

Thanks again for all the comments guys.

Thanks guys. It's been raining all week, but it's suppose to clear up tomorrow. Can't wait to go out for a photoshoot. However, it looks like my bad luck is still lurking over my shoulder. A couple days ago I curbed one of my CH's :mad:
