Looks good now like the stance just would space the wheels out a bit. Also would have gotten a lci trunk set up, maybe in the future?

Eso es! Pues te voy a contactar para que me des algunos consejos/ideas con el m*o, ya que aunque este es mi 3er BMW, es mi primer serie 3 y no he hecho muchos mods.

LOVE the look!!!

Are those M3 skirts for the sedan or coupe? Looks like the coupe to me.

Also, I'm typically not a fan of the performance rear diffuser being painted, generally prefer the stock black plastic finish. But yours just matches the whole look and just works so well for some reason.

Love Mean era, Hate gold era. Did you change the cluster LED's yourself? Get rid of that Texas flag on your steering wheel, the red and black emblems, get yourself a carbon fiber rear diffuser, and you have yourself one of the top E90's in my opinion.
