I wanted to know little niggles, on how it compares to the Roller and whats it like living with it. What is the difference in attention you can gauge compared to your other exotics.

I am sure none will mind if you could have a dedicated (or post in this thread) photos of ever car's consoles, mmi/i-drive (whatever you call it) displays, keys and other little tit bits which not many of us would have a chance to see.

Exterior shots and other stuff are common, things like seat adjusters and stuff I am sure all of us would love to see. And what alloys are you getting for the M3?
Well lets see how it compares to the Rolls. At this level of craftsmen-ship , one is really paying for the brand name . The leather / wood quality of both is same. The comfort levels are same. The Prestige is the same. Where the Phantom pulls away is its regal size and cabin build. Where the Bentley is still 20% driver oriented , the Rolls is 100 % passenger oriented . Hence they take the cake in that sense.

It is easier to live with the Bentley because it handles its weight nicely , as a result of which , one can turn the car in a tight turn without the risk of nicking the front , which is a common issue with the gargantuan phantom.

Recognition - wise , where there is no mistaking a Rolls Royce , the Bentley is often mistook as a BMW by the proverbial 'common eye' .

I'll work on the pictures as well.

The picture of the rims are attached as follows and as a matter of fact this car also has the same lowering springs that I am installing on my M.

All the parts will be installed by the dealership here brother. They installed Eisenmann exhausts for a client who owns a M5, so they were well versed with the installation . And provide them with a manual / instructions booklet and they get the job done.

What about the warranty of the car after installations of the all mentioned parts.

The warranty would be void for sure. But that was the least of my concerns.

so you had other concerns when doing the mods?

Thats a great car and awesome rims - you do know that the center piece (bmw logo) is missing in one of those rims (front left?)

That isn't his car, I'm sure those pics were just to show us what the rims look like on the M3.

Yes, that is not my car. It is just to show you what the gunmetal rims and drop would look like.

whoa... i just love the shade of red on that M3. Looks hotttt !!!

Nice lookin rims KD. They'll look super on your white M3. But with the lowering springs, wont the car scrape speedbumps on our roads?

P.S. How much are you expecting for the 911?

No it won't scrape as the drop would be 0.8 " upfront and 0.6" in the back.
