The car looks beautiful in those pics!
Paragon is widely considered one of the best body shops in the area (along with Kenny Hawkins). You'll be good with either.

Welcome! I think you will really enjoy the n54. It really is an awesome platform to work on. On a side note, are your calipers painted?

Welcome to the area. Haven't seen any meets for the BMW crowd. Are you military? I work on Camp Johnson, you'll probably see me around. I'm driving a 2010 Tasman Green couple.

And the contribution: A few people were asking about where to get body work done in the RDU area. I mentioned Kenny Hawkins but hadn't yet used them. Finally got around to getting my M Aero Kit installed by them and here are some pictures:

They did a great job and I'd highly recommend them especially considering their price which was very reasonable compared to what other shops in the area were offering.

I'm from Raleigh, I've had my 3-series for about 3 years now and love it. Pretty much bone stock.

328i sport (6MT)

I've had several of the usual issues. Valve cover gasket, currently needs a new oil filter housing gasket and steering angle sensor. The second picture is the view from the side of the highway when my water pump died. That's how I found this forum actually, looking for DIY's to save a little cash on repairs.

Still love the car though. Always wanted one and this is my first BMW.

Feels like this every time I drive it:
