Like i said from the start, i dont excpet everybody to like it, i know MANY will NOT like it, and i have absolutly no problems with that!!!! Hell, i didnt know if I WOULD like it when i was bulding it!!!

But to start saying i am cheap, and i cant afford better, that has NOTHING to do with the car, or taste, or anything! Would it be better if i paid $10K for bodyshop to do it!???

So when i post pics of the car, i want the honest oppinion on THE CAR, not to what i spent on it, what else i can afford, and how i have this so called "immunity"...

^ I have to agree. Some harsh words may have been overlooked. It is something that you are handling in a very nice and good manner. I would be pissed if those kind of words were directed to me. lol


But Bratko, werent you supposed to be in BG on vacation. I mean project is okay, but you gotta rest your self on the coastline a bit. Burgas or Varna. I gotta pay a visit asap.

Almost love it...

Hey Fil,

I still want a passenger side seatbelt anchor for my M3 but I digress...

I love the flat grey/ black look, but you should punch it up a bit to make it pop.

1- Paint the wheels gloss black
2- Paint your trim/ body side moulding black
3- Paint the brake calipers bright red so that they pop out from the wheels and help to set-off the red in your window sticker
4- Paint the mirror bases black

If somebody with 'mad photoshop skillz' can do this, you'll see what I'm talking about.

PS- PM me when you get that seatbelt anchor (97+)

All I'm saying is that there's a difference between saying you don't like someone's car, and shitting all over someone's car while making indirect pokes at the owner.

Fil has no immunity as far as I'm concerned. I now know a lot of people on this board personally, but that doesn't excuse them from ill behavior. If someone is being a prick, I'll call them out on it no matter who it is. Luckily this doesn't happen often as most people behave in a respectful manner towards fellow members. Sometimes though, personal shit gets in the way and they feel they have to air it our for all to see. Keep personal shit personal. If someone you don't like posts up a car you're not fond of, feel free to say you don't like the way it looks but leave it at that.

honestly this pissed me off quite a bit because last year i popped my stock 328i, jonny sold me his which was "mint". let me explain how it went at the shop, after the swap, car overheated hard after i left the shop, they cracked my windshield even though when i asked charlie he said it wasnt them, reverse lights never worked again, and the motor which was "mint" leaked oil like a dirty whore, had 2 bad ignition coils, and the water pump siezed a week after i got the motor, now i never said anything because i dont like bashing shops, one thing i will give charlie is everytime i called him, he would always call back regardless if it was sat night! oh ya and it took them a week to do this sloppy job

now phil, the idea you gave everyone by saying rocoo sits on his ass on the computer all day, then y is it when he installed my M motor 2 months ago he did it in 1 day?!?! which came out perfect, and not only that, he installed my new flywheel, clutch, changed ALL fluids, and put in a new heatshield all in one day!

you dont like getting bashed, dont bash others!

im not trying to bash bimmersport, or jonny, or phil, because there are obviously many satisfied and happy customers of theirs on this forum. But dont put other shops down, and then not expect other people to do it to your work/shop!

OMG i cant believe we are getting in another RMP/Bimmersport argument in my thread!
This is about MY CAR, not Bimmersport, Eurostyle, RMP or ME!
Does what i have to say about some shope change ANYTHING about the car? Or who likes it? I guess so! If it was one of RMP's buddys some people would lover it?
What i said was a general statement, including but NOT limited to RMP, and i stand by it. It was my honest oppinion, not a cheap stab (like some!).

As for your experience with John/Bimmersport...Did you tell them all this, did you use the "Feedback" section??? If not, dont bring things up years later, when nothing can be done...

next time you paint it,try it in satin black. it will look sooooo much better. flat paint just looks like you can't afford to paint the car IMO. it looks like shit on any car..

The thing about this paint is that its textured, not just a flat paint with no shine...And that does NOT show at all in pictures...I was thinking about flat black, but seen many and dont find it unique enaugh...
