Got rid of the Clears, and fixed up the bumper. I also did a 3 stage swirl removal on it which was really needed.

Suspension fitted on.

My previous M3 build my pickup tube failed so I made sure it wasn't going to happen again. Z3 upgrade.

Brand new spoiler came in. Some people might recognize the part number

Since I love driving through the mountains at night I needed to retrofit my headlights.

While I swapped out my motorsport international door badges I thought Id try something new and stick the m3 badge on the bumper. (I decided against it)

Lastly I have been collecting a lot of parts.

Lastly all my other parts have come in.

I can't possibly give out all my parts till I finish the car.

Enjoy :parrot:

Glad you didn't take out a 60 month loan, and wonder what else the seller would have taken? First born?

Where in CO? A regular at autox had a techno some years back.

Not a bad buy for $3k. Good to see the headlights were one of the first things done. As the output on the stock US ones are absolutely terrible.

Nice job, off to an excellent start. A bit low for my taste but I like Daytona Violet. I actually looked for one before I found my Techno Violet.

What headlight kit is that?

I think it can go lower!
The car looks pretty clean to begin with. You win.

$3K for a rare color. What's the interior like? Mileage? Clean title? At $3K that's a good deal just on the principal of the color. Interior swap, S54 swap (S52 build or swap), suspension overhaul, and a cooling system overhaul and I'd say you have a winner! :thumbsup2:

Aside from how low it is, I'm liking where this is headed.
