This car is amazingly gorgeous! How many clear coats are on that!

Simply Beautiful, one of the BEST E92's I've seen, tasteful and strong.

Wow......

I don't care what anybody says, This is Bad A$$$$$$........

You and Creaminz IMO have the best Coupe and Sedan conversions to date....

You created an extension of you and it was tastefully done. What you spent should not be relevant.

Enjoy your car.

How did you get hold of the Ferrari color for the paint job? The paint is awesome!! If I ever get the idea to paint my 335 in a new color it could be this one!

Can you tell me where you got the fenders done? I wanted to do the same on my 135i a couple of years ago but no one locally would touch it. I am sure some time in the future I would want to do this again.

Nice project.....def lots of work put into this car, I bought that Perf BMW magazine and saw the spread, the color of the car looks odd in the magazine, but better in your aftershots. The mag also says 498bhp 450tq, is that exaggerated and padded or are you running aftermarket turbos also??

Like everybody else was saying, scrap the "M" stickers anywhere, I would also delete the vents on the fenders like LTBMW did on their 4 door. M3 imposter is just not cool any way you paint it, cut it, power it or build it. I still cant understand how this project only coast 2/3 of an M! I mean really? Couldn't you just save for a year or so and get that last 3rd? lol If the status of owning an M was something that you were going for, why not just work harder to get the M? V8 and all the M trimmings, and a solid oem build, trumps any other 3 series model by far....there is no comparison.

Don't get me wrong, your shit looks hot, but will it be togather in years to come? who knows....will it be as valuable as a limited production M3 will be in years to come? no. Im sure you thought about that stuff so ill leave it alone. I appreciate the build, and props for ripping your shit apart to mod.
