FastActionJax's Melourne Red 328i Build Thread.

Hey Whats up guys, I figured I'd start a build thread since my car is coming together quicker than expected, Once I started I just couldnt stop myself lol. At first I was unsure about the red but it was the only 6speed manual transmission car I could find in a 300 mile area so I decided to go ahead and purchase it. Since then the color has grown on me significantly. So far this is whats gone into it!

Does anyone have these springs? I've always liked AFE's products but couldnt find much info on these, Regardless I thought I'd give them a shot
Great car and a great Christmas gift which is unlikely to be returned in the spring (pun intended of course). One of the better looking Red vehicles on the road.

It was actually a breeze to install and gave me no trouble what so ever! Total install time was about 1.2 hours with proper tools and ramps.
