E92 in Pearlescent orange with M3 Parts

Here is my 2008 e92 320. I bought this car about 5 months ago, was going to go for m sport but due to insurance had to settle for an "SE" as im only 21. Once i bought i felt it needeed a bodykit and some new shoes.
After looking at the available bodykits for the e92 i had settled for autovogue as after the m3 the best looking e92's are autovogue (my personal opinion). I was then lucky enough to get my hands on genuine M3 parts at very fair prices so i decided to go for the m3 look.
The following is wat i got hold of:
-Genuine E92 M3 front bumper
-Genuine E92 M3 rear bumper
-Genuine E92 M3 side skirts
-Genuine E92 M3 wider flared wings
-Side marker wing grilles
-Genuine E92 M3 bonnet
-M3 spoiler in gloss black
I then went down to the bodyshop to get a quote for paint and labour. The bodyshop guy advised that all that would be left was the roof, doors and rear quarters so the whole car should ideally be resprayed. I took the option for the full respray but wasn't going to get it done in the same colour. I opted for pearlescent orange in the end after two long weeks of hard thinking and im glad i went for that. His work included paint, labour, changing various brackets get the genuine m3 parts to fit, swapping the standard front panel with an m3 front panel which i bought seperate and customising the rear bumper and side skirts to fit (he didn't fancy extending the rear quarter panels due to him having alot of work so he said he would customize the bumper and skirts to fit plus i couldn't find any rear quarter panels from the m3's).
While the work was being underataken, i needed some new shoes to go with the bodykit so i bout some 19" black and chrome staggered FX alloy wheels 9j at the front and 10j at the back with the wider dish.
The interior was standard cloth interior so i purchased m sport cream leather interior with door cards (carbon door trims) and complete centre console. Couldn't sorce the m3 interior so settled for this.
After the car was out the bodywork shop i took it down to the exhaust place and got a custom made stainless steel quad exhaust which sounds nice.

This is what my car looked like when i bought it







This is what it looks like now

















Please remember i didnt undertake this conversion to make people think that this is an M3, i havent put any M3 badges on it and i got it sprayed in a non BMW colour, it is a custom colour. As u can see, alot of money, time and effort has been put into this car and im glad with the result.

After getting all this done and going through the headache of being without a car for weeks i now have to let it go. I need a diesel and prefferebly 5 door but may consider a 3 door. Really don't want to sell after all that ive been through but i have to. So let me know wat u guys think and if anyone's interested in a px or cash sale, just message me 13,999 ovno owes me a lot more than that.

surely this with all the mods will cost more to insure than a standard m sport?

I'm really getting sick of all these 3 series on here turning it into a m3 look alike. So sad, and this time even worse not even any power what soever

The insurance company wouldnt quote me on a m sport, they said i was too young. They were able to cover me on a m sport diesel but not a petrol, crazy how insurance works. Didn't have the money to buy a diesel m sport at that time, but now that i need a diesel i wish i could've sorted the money out and bought 1
