Nice one Raj, Congrats.

Looking at that mod list though, would it not have been easier to get a M3  :))
I guess you've got the enjoyment of building a tailored car as you please  :thumbsup:

Looking forward to the updates

Cheers.

I've been fortunate that the mod list was completed by 2 previous owners so I have benefitted without the associated cost for once lol. However I will be making up for it with future planned mods LOL.

Sorry bro, I thought the mod list was what you we're going to do to the car, I didn't realise they had already been done  ::) lol
Just need the m sport bumpers and all good. What's the plans with the chrome trim, wrapping or something else?

Ah no worries lol.

Very lucky to find a motor with all this done already so saves me a fortune for once lol.

Tbh I'm leaving the silver trim surround for the time being as I actually don't mind it.

Bigger update lol.

The addition of an E90forum members old moulded aero lip front bumper and finally fitted the rear aero bumper that I got with the purchase of the car. The diffuser is just the standard black at the mo but the plan is to gloss black it or CF it.

Did have to drill the PDC sensor holes using a step drill bit. Need to mod the pdc brackets a little to get the sensors sitting a little more flush.

Not the best pics as been crazy busy.

Certainly more sleek now with the additions compared to the SE bumpers.
