1st time seeing this thread, you're my hero! I was wondering how the 5 series tail lights would look on a 3, and what do you know, they look awesome as hell!

Keep up the awesome work!

OG bro. OG.

Can't wait to see the final product. I have this real bad feeling you gonna end up just selling it after you finish it. Make sure you have enough time to enjoy before you sell that piece of art.

If the body lines look like that from 15ft away, I can't imagine how poor the bodywork looks in person

Got to give it to him for the hard work but I agree, too much gap and unevenness on alot of those panels.
