Car looks good...don't do springs only on a base 3 series, you'll hate the ride

Looking good. You just need to go to ind distribution and get those front orange reflectors replaced with color matched ones. Best 75 you can spend!

Looking good especially after the drop. Surprised you had to wait that long for just vb3 wheels.

Thanks. It took me 5 months to start modding my car. Wasn't sure if I was going to keep it or go back to a coupe

Oh that makes sense. Thanks for clarifying. M sport would be a nice addition but it's probably worth waiting to see what else comes out.
