Just thought I'd update you guys on my car. I just finished installing the M3 mirrors, and took a few quick pics, the resizing messed up the quality a bit though...

Thanks guys. They're not OEM, but they are the exact same size and shape as the OEM ones. This is the first set of replica E46 M3 mirrors I have found that aren't big and bulky. I bought them used off another member on fanatics from Spain, no one else in the states has them, so I was lucky enough to be the first one to call dibs.

My exterior is pretty much done, however, the only thing I'm considering still doing is maybe smoking out the red in my tails, I can get it done at my friends shop for dirt cheap, poissibly even free. I made a quick PS of it, but I think it might be a bit too dark. The other PS was done by a fanatic. I'm thinking of doing a dark cherry red type of color, not blacked out. What do you guys think? Also thinking about adding the Kamei eyelids.

kamei eyelids
smoked tails (not pitch black.. even the black+white/LED tails if you've seen them?)
and smoked front corners

All that will look good, but you're just talking about icing on the cake now.

Thanks guys.

shimajer... Thanks man. The DTM exhaust si a love/hate thing. I myself love how it looks with my rieger rear, however, I do plan on foing a quad exhaust most likely next fall, but not with the dtm tips

Justin e36... Thanks man, you know i appreciate it. If I smoke any parts though, it will most likely be just the red in the tails so the rear corners will flow with the front corners and side markers. I myself don't really like the look of smoked front corners on a sedan. Because of the shape of the corner housing, it always looks a bit "dirty" and out of place to me. If I had a coupe though I'd smoke them for sure.

Right now, sometime in this upcoming month, I'll be getting my UUC ltw flywheel and organic performance clutch put in along with my stop tech stage 2 upgrade. Just waiting for Vday to pass by, the gf breaks my wallet

I just had my eyes tested and they put those drops in my eyes that opens up your pupils, and that pic with the eyes is so tripping me out.
