Roll_the_dice's 2013 F30 EBII build thread

Hi everyone...have never done a build thread on any car I have owned. I always get caught up in the moment of the build and just forget to do a build. This time I have been taking pictures as I go and hopefully will be able to show the transformation from when I purchased the car to now and future upgrades.

As the car sits today--Many mods to come

This thread will be a work in progress...will update and post pictures when I have time.

I purchased the car 8/2016 CPO in Atlanta.

As I get older, I don't care about speed or go fast parts is all about aesthetics for me these days.

Below is a list of mods and if I have a thread for the mod there will be a link to that thread.
