FINALLY GOT A NEW CAR!!! boosted e36 M / style 5 / 335

Hey guys,
after a pretty extensive search literally across the whole US, I ended up buying Bav///Man's car...a moderator here on Bimmerforums.

Picked it up today at At Speed, swapped on Mark's gold powdercoated style 5's and went on my way. The car came with beautiful BBS RCJ's but the front tires are down to the chord on the inside due to wayyyy too much camber. New tires, fix the camber and polisht the RCJ's and I'll return the style 5's to Mark (mscire2?). Funny thing is....this car has a TT stage II turbo kit on it and Mark's wheels are running 205's all around, those 2 dont mix too well

A teaser....well not really a teaser but the car is filthy in this picture, after I work a good 12-24 hr long detail session it will look much much better. I'm anal like that.

Big plans for this car.......stay tuned



A few weeks ago when I first saw the car....we lowered the front almost 2 inches today FYI...RCJ's :buttrock




and Adam's beautiful 335 on the way to At Speed. Mark took these pics w/ my camera out the window of my truck...amazed at the clarity. Thank you 50mm f1.4.






We made a few videos tonight too, once Mark edits them i'll post em up....burnout action baby.

really love it. i think you should change the headlights to zkw(s). Give the clean look with some nice 6k HIDs. I have owned a 96 m3 which i pretty much gave it away, now thinking back should have just kept it.

Congrats on the car Matt, when are you doing the 24 hour detailing? I should stop by to help out a bit. This looks like so much fun....

I think the detailing is going to start this afternoon. Me, adam, and mark are swapping the front struts, changing oil and tranny fluids and doing a few other little things then i'm going to wash/clay/polish

its going to be a long day
