The car is getting the original E36 M3 bodykit and most likely 17 inch alloys, although i don't like any of the designs ive been shown as yet, which most likely will make me want to jump to the 18 incher which was really hot, however, my ride quality will go for a six. Please if anyone does know of nicer looking rims in 120 PCD 17 inch, please do let me know. cheers

The dillema of the alloys never ends....

M3 Sedan Bumper, Skirts & Fender Grills, Projector Headlights, Smoked Tail Lamps, Custom Stitched Black Leatherite Interior, Full Body Refurbish and Paintjob, Engine Refurbish, All New Suspension Parts & Steering Overhaul, New Brake Rotors & Pads, New Windshield & Moldings.

Am i forgetting something?

Allright guys here are some WIP pics. As u can see the M3 bumper is on, the car is being prepared for paint after which the interiors are going to be installed.

@ abix: Are the wheel arches going to be flared or going to remain untouched ? and please do consider a subtle rear spoiler.

i suggest flared wheel arches with deep dish wheels and hood vents.

Something like this:

I feel a BMW (any model) should be done in the most shiniest and reflective Black color available.

Grey is austere IMHO. Unless it is the metallic Dark Grey as on the Civic. But austere NICE understated colour none the less.

As for the alloys I thought the Lenso Eagle, should go well with the car, which is available in India !!

So hope to see the car roll in about X number of days




Cheers

Me and accordmasters are all for the same Blue that badboy has posted.

We actually told Abix that we wont let him do grey because its not his decesion anymore LOL!

Let's see what the final outcome is.
