*Edit: Should've called this my Progression thread instead of a build thread. Seems more appropriate*

Figured I make one to keep track of the progression. I have big plans, but in no rush.

Picked up an Alpine White/Coral Red '17 340i manual back in June 2017.

Car was a CPO with 8,500 miles. S/o to my boy Bert for putting me in this car.

Some info on the car:
-Manual
-track pack
-tech pack
-m sport pack

Mods:
-AFE Catback Exhaust



Pics from a week after I picked her up. Nicknamed: Stella

I realized who you are a little bit ago. Hope you keep it simple and clean. No need for bags and huge flares.

Yeah I think you know what I mean. It's just easy to end up looking gaudy and overdone. You got a nice start though, looks good.

Test fitted some wheels today, trying to find the perfect specs....

Yes these are center locks!
19x9.5 +35 square

Rears can be more aggressive and wider
Fronts are very close to the strut
