Got the car back from paint and had a few minor issue around the grill that need to be fixed. Will be taking care of those after interior.

Dropped the car of last Friday 3/1 to have the interior done. So hope to have the car back this week with everything done less a bath.

Also started the 1M build. This is the "light weight" build

Will post images once I get the car back

So I finally have a real update. I got the car back from interior and paint touch up WOOT. Interior looks great and the CSL 1M doors look pretty good. I REALLY need to clean the inside as the car has been gone for 4 months and the shop dust builds up. So here are some quick interior images.

Update the Google spec sheet with the painters and interior contacts. Both did a excellent job on the work I requests and the prices were fair. A they say you get what you pay for and the work was A+

Thanks to Sierra Auto Body and Romans in Auburn CA.

Fantastic work m3dragon. Your attention to detail, thorough workmanship, and your drive for continual personal development towards your vehicles are outstanding. Great build thread here.

I spent Saturday morning on 4/20 installing the passenger seat sensor. The Install was easier than I made it to be as I didnít realize the seat sensor I needed was on the bottom of the old stock seats. So had to go over to storage and get the part and plug it in. Next step is to go to the local BMW shop to clear the passenger airbag code.

Had another Saturday free and went to the future father in laws shop to adjust the front bumper. Still trying to get it just right but we did close the gap a little more than it was. Will be working on it this weekend again to hopefully get it all just right.

So if you are going to do something right, GO all the way with it. So I went full vanity and got a new custom plate.

I have a new tune from Evolve I will be installing to address the slight issue of the car running rich.

I have two updates. First update is I installed the new Evolve Tune. This was to address a slight running rich issue the car has at start. They also added a CSL rev match which does a better job than stock SMG tune.

Second update is a video, but I will post that later. I know I am mean.

Love it. Was the reason I bought the car. You have to learn how to drive it right as there is some quirks. But once you learn them and remember to use them and not fight them the car is flawless.
