Thank you! I just ordered gloss black dual slat (m3 style, no badge of course) grills a few minutes ago. Tints go on this Saturday.

I'm really happy with the power for now..MPPK helps and the MPerformance Exhaust is plenty for me. Mods will be slow and steady as I work a modest job. So far my list is,

ERW Charge Pipe
Wagner Intercooler
JB4
Gintani Down Pipe
Rear Diffuser
Front Lip
HRE FF01 Liquid Silver Wheels

Nice build list. Job must not be THAT modest buying $$4000+ wheels.
Going for power 1st is cool, I usually work in reverse starting with aesthetics because once you get a taste of that boost monster you always want more. Look forward to seeing your progression on the boards. It's a journey, not a sprint. I won't be done with this for another 2.5 years as I also work a modest gig, 2 in fact. Just enjoy the progression and make it your own.

Finally got my side skirts and rear fins added on.



Couldn't get the roof painted yet, shop was booked solid last week due to the holiday and I go back to work tomorrow. Gonna have to wait a bit longer for that stuff. I did narrow down a few more cosmetic choices while talking to my guy though.

A few phone glamour shots. I wanted to run them through Photoshop to edit the headlights... but too much work.

I'm on the fence right now honestly. There are definitely more mods on the list but I think I want to get back into a coupe. If I do keep it, paint the roof gloss black then put on my M Sport rear calipers after having the whole set powder coated and throwing drilled and slotted rotors on with ceramic pads for a full brake assembly upgrade. Work Meisters to finish out that stuff then start on power mods the later part of the year.

Ooooooorrrrr... I may sell it as is and buy a 370z for fun and a Volvo V850 wagon to bag.

Love you set up,
I'm about to go bags, but have not played with wheel fitment at all.

Really like yours!

Would you mind sharing your ideal fitment? Looking for 19s with -2.5 or less camber all around. Hopefully lip to fender when slammed but not much hassle when aired up.

Noob question
if you had 19x95 with +37 offset with a 5mm spacer, is that equivalent to a 19x9.5 +32?

Appreciate it.

I have about 10mm or so to work with up front. It depends on whether or not you plan on stretching tires to expose the lip for complete lip to fender look. Like I'm probably going to end up with a 19x9.5 et23 255/35/19 and -2.4. I still want to run some meat on the wheels. If you plan on slamming it, you could do the same with a 225/35/19. I think you may even be able to run a 10" wheel up front, but you would need over -3 to make them work. I wish I had my old wheels to test out this theory. I've seen a few guys in the stance thread running 10" fronts. The rears on this platform seem to be the issue because you need a higher offset to fit. I'm debating 19x10.5 et40 or 19x11 et45 or higher. I want at least 3.5" lips all around, 4" would be ideal, but harder to fit up front without going into a 10" wheel with series stretch. Check the stance thread and study up. Also use willtheyfit . com to help guide you.

Hope this helps. Sorry for the rant.

I've decided to keep it... and thus, the show must go on.





Couple late night shots from Saturday after job #2.
Ordering my brake upgrades this weekend and will have the calipers and rotors powder coated. Ordered my interior trim vinyl and lug nuts as well. Spring is on the way and still debating wheels...

Where did you find the wheels you have on now? Those are the ones I want!

Do you have a link for the rims?

I think I bought the last of that specific stock. When I ordered them there were only 5 left and I bought 4. I just checked the site and couldn't find them anymore. Check eBay and search BMW 437 wheels. You'll see a few options pop up. Happy hunting.

I think I found quite a few using google .Thanks man! Car looks damn good however I would raise it a little bit. It will also handle much much better if you are road racing it.

Thanks for the advice, but I'm good with where it is. I'm not much for road racing anymore. Low and slow for me in my older age.

These came in today. Thanks to Kevin at R1Concepts for helping me finalize the details with everything. I had previously specced everything out after tons of research. Ended up going with the M235i rotors, dimpled and slotted rotors (No Cross Drilled option for these higher quality rotors). Went with M235i specs because I upgraded my rear calipers to the MSport Brembo calipers and needed 345mm rotors, the fronts remain at 340mm for the 4 pot Brembo calipers as I haven't decided to upgrade those as of yet. Also went with ceramic brake pads to eliminate all of the shitty OEM pads brake dust.

Here's a pic of the calipers just for continuity sake...



I'm gonna have everything powder coated into a nice green before installation in a few weeks.

Looking to get everything powder coated in April, hopefully installed shortly after. Trying to figure out the logistics as this is my daily and I have to remove the front caliper to do everything. It'll be posted here afterwards.
