As a fellow forum member I think it's my responsibility to encourage this kind of unnecessary and irresponsible spending - do it!!!

Went to a cars & coffee at Collector Car Showcase in Long Island. So many beautiful Porsches there, definitely worth browsing their website. Also had a Carbon Black E46 M3 with mileage just over 20k for sale, looked mint. Couple pics I took of my car while there, love how IB can look so different depending on the lighting.

No major updates, but I did get my helmet painted to color match the car, think it turned out great based on pics. Always liked that my white helmet matched my old AW E46, so I got this idea in my head...





Also got a CCA bottle opener for the garage and a friend took this pic... think they did a nice job on the proportions haha

Wish I had more to add, just a few minor updates

Paint correction came out really nice (video here), struggling to decide if I do clearbra or not. There are good number of rock chips already on the bumper, but bra would keep it from getting worse. Or could go euro bumper..

Also replaced the valve cover badge (it was bubbling) and rear badge (faded) - makes a nice difference. Replacing side grilles and all the exterior plastic bits next.

I had the same rock chip issue. Before the paint correction, I filled the chips. Wet sanded. Then paint corrected. You couldn't see the chip damage really. Then I did the clear bra on the entire front so you can't see the lines.

How did you fill in the chips, Dr color chip or something else?

I used dr color chip mainly just because I had it. Just used the paint part. I purposely left excess. Then I wet sanded.

Found pics. I never wet sanded before. Lots of YouTube. And did my truck first. Before middle then after pics.
