I really admire your job, Ive always thought of cars like a blank canvas where you can paint and make something that reflects your personality. it seems like the cost of an M3 in your country was the perfect excuse to make something of your own that would be very unique and cool. props for that, you made a masterpiece by turning your perspective of your car into a reality and that takes guts, so dont let the haters bring you down

Job well done! The car looks awesome, one thing I noticed though is thst your hood doesn't seem to close porperly and looks to have a small gap. You can really tell when you are parked right next to the white m3. Correct me if im wrong?

Hard to believe that this thing cost less than an M3, but I love the ride. Looks awesome! Also, the photography is ridiculous!

Nice post!

Congrats on the build and magazine feature, having been there with one of my previous cars I know you'll appreciate the moment and think back to all those late nights whenever you see the article!

Would be keen to see your dyno chart, not too concerned about the figures - moreso the delivery. That said, 500hp is a lot considering the limited amount of power mods you've listed.

If the above is true, then sir you've pretty much just written my mod list power wise!
