    First mod:


    Just swapped the front lighting (Depo Headlights, smoked TYC turns, diy blacked out fogs) over from my sedan:



    As you can see, very dirty. Should look very good once the car is clean.

    However, I'm thinking I want some darker turns.

    Coils are in, just swapped them over from the sedan without adjusting anything.

    Going to adjust them a bit tomorrow, but before I go really low, I gotta fix my loose hanging heat shield of the catalytic converter, because thats limiting my ground clearance.

    Coils are from AP. http://www.ap-sportfahrwerke.de/

    Low will come once I mount the 18s come spring.


    And here's two pics I never posted in this thread, I think I might'Ve posted them somewhere else too.






    If all goes according to plan, it will look loads different next spring / summer.

    Just bought an M-Bumper for the rear.



    Correct color, good condition, yeah.

    Front bumper will follow soon, skirts will come after I've replaced the front right fender.

    In the next few weeks I'm gonna be speaking with my TÜV inspector regarding the tire sizes I can run on the 18s, when I get the all clear, I'm gonna drop my wheels off for powder coating. Lime green, anyone?

    Yesssssss.

    Something like this, only with more gloss:



    I want a real intense in-your-face lime green that burns your eyes from 50 yards away.

    My reason for this, apart from loving the contrast of bright green on black, is that i want to shock the german bimmer scene, set the scene in flames, so to speak. The german scene ain't never seen something like that yet.

    I just bought a set of smoked tails.

    Once all the snow is gone, I'll be mounting the tails and the M3 rear bumper I have lying around. Don't want to do it before then as I'm a bit afraid of some dumbass sliding into my car's rear, lol. Once that stuff is mounted, i'll take some pics... those will actl be the last pics before I finish the exterior, I want to post the next pics once everything is done.

    Hoping to drop off the wheels for powder coating in the next 2 weeks.
