i just don't understand this whole M3 conversion thing... you'd be a poser at best...

Take a look at brandons latest pic on his post, that thing looks like it rolled out of the factory.

If you are happy with the mods then don't let any of the negative comments get to you. Be careful about the hood, you may need the m3 one.

Keep us posted
