I think over here 99% of people fitted the 97+ kidneys on pre-facelift cars.

But the 'lazy bastards' don't change the wings and side repeaters (indies).

Nice pick up, the muffler(s) are kinda gross IMO but hey, all things in time. Enjoy driving it!

Thanks for the feedback and MAN are you guys informative. I'm still learning a lot on this M3 and have yet to get across the different changes as they look very similar in the pre-facelift to facelift stage. Either way I really appreciate the information. I need facelift fenders now...

Exhaust isn't a supersprint. Looks like a UUC or corsa.
Congrats on an automotive goal accomplished. Feels great doesn't it.
Noted, I'll edit that out and find out exactly what exhaust I have installed. Also, YES it feels more then great. Feels amazing to become an owner of this beauty.

Big inspiration btw. I hope to keep her as clean as yours. I need that damn LTW wing lol

Feeling is mutual.

UPDATE:

One of the first and most important areas I wanted to take care of were the suspension. Bought the car with Broadway Statics and was not a fan at all. purchased KW V3 and a Rieger GT front lip to complement the the front end.

Came to my senses and quickly raised it. Will be grabbing fog light covers and some maintenance items for this weekend.

Great choice on the V3s. I'm jealous, as I just have v1s. After the rieger lip explodes, invest in the OEM GT/LTW piece. While its stupid money, I can tell you are going to probably be enjoying this car for a long time, and they handle abuse very well.
As for the facelift fenders, I'd say instead of doing that go back to the early nose panel/grilles. Much less to paint, and I think the best looking front end setup. Or really, if it doesn't bother you just leave it. No one notices it unless they are insane like many of us around here. Its certainly not like it doesn't look great as is.
Whats the plan for tires?

Lol hopefully the lip lasts for awhile but you are right, I will be keeping and enjoying this car for a long time, so I decided that my next big job will address any and all loose ends of this car.

In the meantime, wheels and tire set up will have to wait til another month or so. Looking into grabbing something light in weight and wrapping them in Michelins. Any pointers? Also I plan on messaging you at some point this weekend on leads on a special part

Sounds good man I'll help where I can.
Apex arc8 are a popular, relatively cheap, lightweight and great looking choice for wheels. So many options though if you want to get spendy.
