Nice choice on wheels. Been eyeing on those as well but more gunmetal color for me. What size will you be running by the way?

For all my tint jobs in the past, i have always gone to Tint Zone. I have paid $140 for just the mid-quality tint.

Not sure to be honest as using what I paid for the X5 is not a fair comparison. It will definitely be more than a few hundred though as I plan on doing the windshield as well.

To help pass the time I figure I will post up my previous build for you guys. For those who don't know I had an 01 M3 for over 8 years. When you own a car for that long it become something more than just transportation. It becomes a part of you and you become a part of it. Selling her was the best worst decision I could have made for my current life. The car was great in my 20's, but now that I'm in my 30's with 3 daughters and a wife, an 'old' euro sports coupe project car is no longer central to my life let alone practical for my given situation.

So I sold it and am leasing a F30 until the new F80 comes out. Anyways here are some pics of it over the years followed by a complete mod list before I sold it.

Small update:

The car is in transit and the Morr wheels are a couple weeks out now so the timing is looking good on the wheels front. Going to order some Continental Extreme Contact DW's in 235/35/19 front and 265/30/19 rear next week to complete this phase of the build.

Mods Update:

P3cars just recently came out with their gauge setup for the F30 so I had to order it. Should be here by next week. Here is some info on it if you guys are not familiar. Basically it is a real time gauge that goes in your left air vent and gathers the data from the diagnostic port. You can display boost and a wide variety of temperatures from intake to egt. It also has the ability to read faults as well as provide a recall and shift light function. It really is a trick piece and I can't wait to get it.

A pic of it installed in their car:
