Smile The Few, The Proud, The Arktis.

After a minor accident that required a new front bumper/hood repair I finally have my car back in action after a month. In the process I have a M3 front with OEM M3 air ducts this time.

During itís downtime I took 12 hours of my life with the help of a friend and installed the BMW Performance Shocks paired with Eibach lowering springs and could not be happier with the performance. It could be lower, but the area around me would leave me bottomed out in no time. I also added 12.5mm spacers to the front.

I also had my mirrors painted professionally (my hack job was alright...) gloss black and matching grilles.

For the interior I broke a speaker cover so I ordered the M3 speaker covers as well as the LCI cupholder covers to replace my peeling ones.

I am happy to really be done with my car. I have done close to everything you can on this car and It feels good for everything to be perfect!

Mod list

Exterior:
M3 front bumper with OEM Air ducts (airducts found on ECS)
Gloss black grilles
OEM Blacklines
CF roundels all around
335i Style rear with custom magnaflow exhaust with 2nd Cats gone.
18mm spacers in the rear and 12.5mm up front.
MTEC V3 Angel Eyes
Glossy painted "Shadowline" trim
M3 lip spoiler
Style 197 Wheels

Interior:
CF wrap
LCI cupholder covers
LED interior lighting
Sirius XM hardwire
M3 white cluster mod
Aluminum Pedals

Suspension:
BMW Performance shocks with Eibach lowering springs

Performance:
AA Tune
Charcoal delete with K&N drop in filter with scoops


Let me know what yaíll think! Also hopefully this can influence more arktis metallic owners to mod. I know how timid I was with this weird color, but I think it works!

Car looks great! I'm glad to see I'm not the only guy with a driver's side exhaust tip that's slightly off.... damn flapper.
