This has been a terrible year for car related issues. I'd never even been in a fender bender since I started driving 13 years ago, but this year I totalled my M3 and pulled off the front bumper of my 335i a couple of months after I got it. After this paintjob, my car is going into the garage until 2013. Haha.
Well let's hope karma owes you another bunch of good years after all that - love balloon white, should look awesome!

There is still time to get the CSL trunk and CF Powerdome hood. Only about $1100 more and you'll save on painting.

You know you're going to eventually do it...

There's a used Vorstiener CSL trunk available in HK for $200, but the truth is I prefer the stock one. I was considering the powerdome hood, but the only guys who make a properly rounded one are DD, and that thing costs an arm and a leg. Plus, I don't want to make my car look an M3, when I can afford one I'll pay my dues!

I appreciate the input though, thanks man.

Nice, thanks for checking it out. How does the color look? I'm probably not going to get a chance to go in this weekend because my little brother is visiting from Singapore. If you get a chance to take pictures, it would be awesome if you could post them up here.

Thanks man, this entire project feels extremely fiscally irresponsible, but a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do

The wait is totally killing me. Thankfully I'm going to the US for a few weeks, so when I'm back it'll be done!

Alright! The car is ready but I'm still in Colorado. I'm arriving back in Hong Kong late Saturday night, so I'll have to pick up the car on Monday.

I'm not much of a photographer, but would you like to see iPhone photos first, or wait until IcyJ has time to do a proper shoot?
