Im going to Birds tomorrow morning to have my Forge Intercooler fitted and hopefully have my BMW Motorsport seats fitted too. It will be my first visit to Birds - looking forward to meeting the guys there and seeing their set up etc. Will take some pics if all goes well.

Im not liking those wheels OR that quad exhaust on that at all - think its because the wheels are far too big - must be 20" at least, which is far too big imo - and the exhaust looks too exposed. But i do love the seats and cant wait to get mine in.

That is one expensive M3 (with M5 engine) replica! Those panels must have been custom made/altered to fit!

Liking your style. Agreed with other comments, the E91 is the best looking tourer on the market, especially when pimped subtly!

Sig updated - might as well now i've spent all the dosh

Can't wait to see Steve's mods, those seats look like proper bad boys......

Gunmetal coated MV3's? There's a thought while mine are off for the winter, don't know how they'd look with Ti Silver though?

Not sure, the indy I use charges 40/hour, so even if its a full day to do the downpipes and intercooler (which I would have done together) then still only 320.

About the same as an oil change at the dealers then..
