Re: Do you take cell phone pics of your m3 constantly Cell phone snapshot thread

Yes, Stratus Gruppe. Also the CF roof from them, though that fitment is not as visible from the angle that the photo is taken.

Re: Do you take cell phone pics of your m3 constantly Cell phone snapshot thread

Can't hold a candle to those amazing scenery shots, but I recently did some upgrades - CF roof, lip, respray in the OEM jet black to bring back the finish.
