Excellent. Well done sir.
An oem dual tip might make the back look even sharper. But I am sure you already have that in mind for some time later

Yep, a 328/M3 style exhaust will be on shortly.

So I got my wheels back from the powdercoaters last night and I'm very pleased with them, pretty much a perfect match. Finish is great too. Found a little unexpected guest though...Should be covered under warranty.



So today I went about cleaning them - wash, clay, polish, wax and then sealant. Has anyone used the Bilt Hamber wheel cleaner? I've heard it's quite good.

Then I went around to lowering the rear of the car. I was already all the way down on the adjuster, so I just took it out. Which allowed me to get the rear exactly where I want it. I still have the pad at the bottom left and a 1mm piece of rubber at the top

Here's some quick iPhone shots

Mate this is FULL of win. Can't tell your a photography student though. Haha First thing I though when I ony looked at the very first pic was, photographer is doing this!! Lol!

Anyway, get that piece of trim that you are missing. After all that hard work, it is letting the side down.

Car looks amazing though. I'd love to stance a 318is, 5 door saloon in blue with a creme interior.

Yeah, I know! This is actually my second set of trim and both of them are broken! Really need to find another bit though because as you say, it lets it down.

They're being painted in the old M-Sport colours from the 70's. They're super hard to find and you can't really buy them anywhere. Should be a bit different when they're finished
