Default ZeroToSixty's 2003 Jet Black

What took me so long to start this?! Dammit!

My name is Matt and I live in Clearwater, Florida with my wife Kristen. I was in the Air Force stationed in Germany when a guy we worked with purchased a E30 M3. I heard about these cars and was surprised when the owner let me drive it around. I was hooked from that day. I told myself I would own a M3 someday. Fast forward to March 2010, the opportunity came when a dealership in Venice, Florida had one available. I traded in my 2003 Jeep Wrangler and got my M3. Since then, I have been in love with this car. It has turned me into a complete car guy. I do almost all the maintenance myself and enjoy it. At this point I can never see myself selling it.

Heres to many more miles with my M

Ill put together a few after I get it washed. Any particular angles? I am loving all over the hyperblack. The silver looked too bright.

Some more side shots would be good. I'm leaning more towards hyper black..

Do you have spacers? Maybe some shots from front and back to see the fitment.

Regardless looks good!

I did have the 15/12 spacers with the OEM wheels. I left the 12 on the rear. It looks good but I am curious how the 15 will look....

So last night I took the 15mm spacers from the front and replaced the 12mm ones in the rear. Perfect. Pretty much dialed in where I want it.

First pic is the 12mm. 2nd pic is the 15.
