Finally...bought her two months ago ('08 with only 5k miles, CPO'd) after planning the mods for my first E9X for over three years. Just didn't plan on taking a step sideways and getting a convertible. The deal was waaay too good to pass on. Now the question is "Why didn't I want one of these incredible cars all along???" I'll never be without a convertible again.

Here was the introductory thread:

Now...for the mods thus far:

* M aluminum foot rest
* Stainless steel pedal set
* Black floor mats
* Windblocker (An absolute must!)

* Aero front lip (Just put it on myself 4 hours ago)

Coming soon-
* Eibach Prokit and Koni FSD dampers
* New rims ('s a secret!)
* Tint (Just a little)
* Blacked-out window trim
* Rear spoiler (One of the three I've ordered.)
* MAJOR interior project (Yes, beige in nice, but...)

Coming later-
* Msport rear bumper with iS diffusor
* Quad exhaust

And...after that-
* Msport front bumper with Arkym lip (Ta da...The dream car. )

But first.........

Sapphire gets collagen...

BIG thanks to Evan at Tischer BMW. I ordered it pre-painted from him and I have to say the work is absolutely flawless. The paint match is dead-on and there is not the slightest blemish in the finish. For $544 painted and shipped across the country, I could not be happier. If you haven't worked with Evan then you haven't experienced the best there is! You da' man, Evan!

Take a look at this interior. It's the last time you'll see it.

**M3-style Rear Spoiler Added***

And...a couple of extras after the sunrise service. Happy Easter everyone!!!
