But there is a gap wehre the hood meets the windshield (pillar) that i will have to get creative to cover up. This was dude to moving the hood foward to make it flush with the fender.

I wouldn't mind being poor like u sir.
Looking really good. I might have to do that down the road if i can pick up a 328 for low 20s and turn around and do that m3 conversion.

I see how it looks now and with current offsets on front wheels it looks wierd. If you put spacers, drivability wise it will make the car worse. What are your plans with rims, leave as it is or get wider items?

Good job on your DIY, dont let what other people think get to you. Everyone can buy a M3 but not everyone can be stubborn enough to make a M3 out of a 335i. I plan to turn my e90 in to a M3 wannabe too

will update with a clean car once im 100% done. i need to do the foglights, windshield fluid tank , side grills, wheel liners. Hopefully all the parts will be here by wednesday.

the paint is a little off but thats because its new paint vs 1.5 year old contaminated paint. when i first painted my hood, it was a little off too. now it not even noticable in person. Pictures really magnifies the mismatch.

I can't believe how bad the paint match is...
in my opinion I would either sell the car or put it back to stock as it look terrible..
