Love what you did, one comment though why is there the excessive gap in the hood where it meets the lights and kidney grill area? Steering Wheel is great.

space grey m3 looks fantastic. didn't you close the hood properly by accident. the gap is a lot bigger than in comparison to the white m3.

This is one of the hottest BMW's I've seen in my life, and I've seen a lot. Tasteful and aggressive. Well done!

Nice job BUT it is NOT an M3, the most spectacular conversion to date would be CREAMINZ 335i to M3 simply because it does NOT say M3 anywhere on the car yet it has OEM material all over it.. Lose the M3 badges, you're retracting value to those that own a real ///M.

Edit; before anyone starts bashing this thing would run rings around an M3, just remember again.. It is NOT an M3, this is a different class completely.. That class being lower.

What's wrong with you?

This guy did an amazing job converting his car to an M3... and even made it look unique with a Ferrari paint job. What matters is the look... which is what he has captured perfectly. The rest is to each his own.

Love your car!

The ONLY thing I'd do is cover the M3 Logo on the side w carbon fiber film or something, so you are understating, instead of misrepresenting.

The car looks great, but why not go out and buy an M3 and be done with it?
