I love what you are doing, just make sure it comes out right on every project. Eversince I move to e9x forum i noticed most of the users here are spoilrich brat that like to spend money, since they have a lot(No offense.) To me money is money, if you can save a few cents its the best of both world. Good luck man

Best to you, and it's all about the end results. If you can do it right and save money, then go for it!! Like I said on my post, some people want M3 parts, and some people want M3 wheel fitment!!!

Thats not the problem cause my friend own a shop and he does all my painting. Doesn't charge me an arm or a leg either. He only charged me 300 to paint my hood, side skirts, rear bumper. That including prep work too not just slapping some paint on.

I think this is awesome as mess as it may look despite what others say. I like both cars and both engines... if I had the money and a 335i e90 I'd probably think of doing the same, especially at those prices on ebay? why not!

Best of luck... don't forget to do the rears!
