*** Back from the dead and all blacked out ***

As some of you know my car was nearly totaled in June due to a freak/massive hail storm (http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=705347 if you're curious)

Three months, 1 day and nearly $15,000 later, Klaus is back from the dead, new and improved.

I took him out this afternoon for a quick photoshoot. It's been raining here all weekend so far, so I had to make due with a short break in the clouds/rain. I'll be doing a full photoshoot next weekend when the weather is nicer, but I know some people have been asking me to post photos of his triumphant return, so here are a few teasers



New parts: hood (cf M3 rep); trunk (CSL); OEM blacklines; OEM shadowline trim; 2 new doors; roof and drip moulding replaced; both front fenders replaced; PDR on rear quarters and passenger side doors; new glass (the body shop forgot to tint the back glass, so I will be taking it back in this week for that. Please don't point that out to me. I was pissed). Basically everything except the bumpers and headlights is new.

Car is still not done, as there are a few things left on my list, but he's almost there. Let me know what you think so far

LOL yes. They did finally get the badge right, although they ordered the wrong speakers for my car not once but three times.

They didn't know what to do with the unused 335 badge when I told them to leave it off, so they threw it in the trunk in a ziploc bag, haha. SO I guess I have an extra if anyone wants it

Looks great, but did they put xi coils in the front? Looks high, only in the front though.

Yeah, hence the "nearly totaled" part. As long as all of this took, I wished they had totaled it. Still, happy to have him back in the garage

Thank you
I got the trunk from a forum member here. I believe it is the same one that **********s and everyone else sells. Maybe it looks different because most people don't paint them and leave them CF?

True

I'm thinking about getting some new wheels (M359s) and going wider in the back. After that I'll lower it a bit


Thanks for the comments guys! Open to suggestions about what to do next. I have some things on the list (wider wheels, front bumper/lip, rear bumper/diffuser) but I'm open to ideas.
