E93 M3... my recent mods...

o Gloss Black front grills (thanks to JLR1969 - I sprayed the ones I bought from you)
o M3 lip spoiler (thanks Teddy), part of the group buy
o ///M brake caliper decals
o painted M3 exhaust muffler with matt black heat resistant paint - looks a whole lot better!

I like the idea of spraying the silencer box matt black, did you remove it from the car or just mask off surrounding areas?

Surprised your car did not already have the spoiler, does the 'vert M3 come spoiler-less then?

Nice looking car thought matey

I just masked the areas around the silencer with newspaper and sprayed a couple of coats... very easy 5 mod and looks so much better.

M3 vert doesn't come with a spoiler, strange but true

it doesn't have the spoiler as the extra 2 tons of weight give it all the downforce it needs

Like the painted exhaust box which i think won't look so good on other colour cars. Bit of a shame that BMW didn't make that part of the car look better, its very Chavalier like.
