1st few mods for the M3

Fitted the colour coded grills, Black side vents, angel eyes, ext. paddles (Big thanks Teddy) and OEM rear LED`s. Pic`s were taken before my trip to Ireland so the car is now in dire need of detailing again.

I`m just sat here looking at a box with the OEM Bluetooth retro-fit kit in it (I`d almost forgotten how big the loom was )

So I guess the next 2 days will be taken up with fitting the B/T and cleaning the car, then it`s time for the `ring.

Unique in the sense of "one of a kind" or unique in the sense of.... as long as you don't happen to pass one of the thousands of others in that colour?



I test drove one in that colour with blue leather... at bedford bmw.

Had low mileage and the owner apparently just polished it all day. It "only" had business NAV though and I was after professional.

Well unique in the sense you don't see it very often, even on M3's, or the fact that not many cars out there have a shade similar, you arse.

I presume you are talking about in Columbus, Ohio... given that this is a UK forum...the world doesn't revolve around what you find in the USA thankfully. The tongue stuck out after my post indicated the cheeky way in which it was intended, it's not good form to call someone an arse just because they challenge you.

Sure, its relatively unique, if that makes you feel better.

LOL, didn`t mean to start a domestic
I haven`t seen many in Laguna Seca Blue, I beleive they stopped doing it in `04 and the fact that the M3 came with Metallic paint as standard means not many people will have opted for a non metallic colour, that and the fact that in the "metal" its not exactly subtle.

Who challenged? You guys need to relax, given the fact a WINK means I was joking back with you. Sorry if they aren't unique in your area of the world, but they are here. Cheers if you took my "arse" comment the wrong way, we don't say that here in the states, thought you would pick up on my sarcasm.

Getting back to the car... which looks amazing It always fascinates me every time I see those wheels how the back wheels look slightly different from the front. The back have a convex appearance whereas the front (not being as wide) look concave

Looking good Mike.

Looking forward to the weekend? A whole host of M cars going now - bet Paul won't be able to drop you this time.

I agree, let's get back to discussing Mike's car.....

Always had a soft spot for M3s, wish I'd got one instead of my last car. I too like the opposite appearance of the wheels.
