July 2012.
First day with the M3 60,000 miles, My brother and I daily drive E46 M3s.



I have always liked the OEM ZCP/CSL Wheels so i bought a set. This was its first photoshoot.









February 2014.
Then I decided to upgrade to the RAC RG4s V2s. I really like how these wheels look, best part about them is that they are forged and light!.
I also added the SGT Scorza CSL Trunk, it was painted by Metro Auto Rebuild in Seattle. They did an excellent job matching the paint.







May 2014.
OEM CSL/Euro Headers Jet Hot Ceramic Coated Painted 2066 Opalescent Blue.









I love that perfect OEM Fitment!





September 2014.
The Evolve CSL Airbox! The best mod for the S54 in my opinion.
