Thumbs up Update on my car

Well, sorry guys I couldn't attend the Wassaga cruise. In the mean time, I got alot acomplished on my car. I am finall done the door inserts. I ripped them apart, ground all the wrap off... which is the biggest pain in the ass of all time, gel coated them, body worked them and painted them the same colour as the car. That lighting is neon rope.

Windsor318is at first said it was too 'Honda'. I think that he changed his mind since. What do you think?

Its done in a conservative manner... I like it. But don't overdo the neon interior

yeah BMW's are imo a higher class of cars,

this is crazy... but...

neon lighting reminds me of Las Vegas... and Las Vegas reminds me of Casino's... and Casino's make me think of those cheap middle aged women in pink tights and dark frame glasses, with lucky 'trolls' (kindof like Mimi from Drew Carey Show) sitting at slot machines...

So in essence Neon lighting makes things look kindof cheap in my eyes... reminds me of NEONS and riced CIVICS.




But like i said.. u managed to pull it off in a conservative manner I like.

Installed the 8000K HIDs. My Mavica is a POS, they look green in the picture. To compare, the fogs are Street Glow fakies and they are very white.

Thay, my friend is called a rig.
I was wasting my time racing a Grand Prix GTP and I had left a bunch of loose wires on my passanger floor. One power wire that I had tapped into the distribution block shorted to ground. I pulled off to the side and found only half of the distribution block had power!!
I jumped only half of the block to the other half to get me home using a power wire I borrowed from the stereo.

I later found out that BMW decided to put an in-line fuse in there power wires. There is a 12 guage and a 2 guage that have there own 'fuses' located in the trunk. The 12 guage is for the "electronics half" of the distribution block... which is totaly seperate from the high power "starter/high amperage" side of the block.

Easy enough to understand?

Oh shit, your talking about the pump,

That is an air pump that all OBD2 M3s have (96+). It pumps fresh air in the catalyc converter to speed up the conversion process.

And here is the deflector mounted to the pod. This will be high-polished to mirror and the metal plate that is covering the monitor is only temporary. It will be brushed stainless steel to match my other consoles.
