What'd you do to fix the gap?

Uses an OE BMW metal clip plus some black silicone or adhesive. Pretty easy

Actually it was fixed and the OEM clips did not fit correctly due to whatever body work was done on that wheel arch. I corrected most of the gap at the mounts (the real reason is the body side studs start to bow the metal and sag), but I never pulled the bumper after the first round of guess and check. The plastic rail on that side was also replaced with new. I intended to modify it at the rail to draw it in tight.

Bray had a CSL style rear valance laying around that he included with my purchase of the M3, just got around to getting that last night.

Not in perfect shape, but can't complain for it being pretty much free





Whoever had made this replica even bothered to slap on a BMW p/n sticker on the backside


Can't really comment on fitment as I have no clue how the real thing fits, I think it looks okay though.





He also had two brand new keys for me as well, now I just need the plastic wallet key to complete the set



Now I just need a CSL trunk lid and to have the valance painted and the backside should be complete

Nice work man, should clean up the rear a lot when you finish it with the trunk and paint the diffuser.

Finally ordered a CSL trunk



Already have everything for the install, but the bootlid won't be ready to ship until the end of February. I’ll have until then to decide whether I want a Dinan badge on this one or not.
Going to have the rear valance repaired and painted once it gets here to tie everything together, I do kind of like the contrast with the black paint though.

Normally not a fan of stickers on cars, but I liked this.



Still on the lookout for an M-Texture rear seat, at least until ASC Fabrics releases their reproduction. Anyone know of anyone with one they're trying to get rid of?

Love what you're doing with your M3. I've also been on the lookout for M-Texture fabric. I'm not familiar with ASC Fabrics, got a link? BMWFabric.com have said they will be producing it "next summer".

Thanks!

I knew of one other company that considered it, but had some ridiculous requirements before they would produce it.

Correct me if Iím wrong, but I believe ASC Fabrics and BMWFabric are the same company, Iíve heard both names.

Hereís the post announcing the M-Texture:

Had to show the forums a little love



Plus new C Pillars since the old ones are broken/peeling, might have to do the B Pillars next since those are doing the same thing.



Can't wait until the CSL trunk comes in.

That's all for now.

That interior looks like it has 30k miles on it. Super clean!
