Completely false. This is my second M3 bumper and I didn't have headlamp washers on it nor did I have holes that my shop had to fill in.

Happy holidays, all. Is BMW Vista still a mod friendly place to take car to? Do you guys know any cool service advisor there? Cheers.

From my experience yes, my SA is Brian. If your m3 is supercharged I think that'd cause problems at most dealerships though.

Thanks for the advice. I went there b4 but that was prior to the supercharger. Hopefully this would not cause too much a hassle.

glad I was able to get your car squared away.

Let me know when we are knocking out the rear suspension..



Also have had a couple other members contact me for work, and completed a couple side jobs as well.

This weeks huge job is a full front/rear suspension/reinforcement on an E36 M3 sedan.

Anyone here have a 325/328 with a muffler delete? I am interested in getting it done but would like to hear it in person. I've been looking at a lot of youtube videos but you can't always get a accurate representation from them. Thanks! Also anyone recommend any shops in SD to get it done?
