One shot, clean car

I don't have much time in my schedule to keep my car in perfect shape but considering my OCD about bird crap, sap, or water spots on my car I do my best to maintain its cleanliness.
Its been an everlasting struggle keeping black clean for as long as possible but I think its worth all the sweat.
Gave my car a well deserved bath today after a while. Usually i just take it over to a touch-less car wash every once in a while, but since I had some free time I decided to give her some attention
And for all you instagrammers out there follow me BKap08.

PS thats just a reflection on the bottom left part of my bumper

Don't know why, but I've always hated the look of roof spoilers on e9x's.
Other than that looks good. Maybe a slight drop though?

Never really was into the roof spoiler look myself but a friend one mine sold it to me for dirt cheap so i said why not haha. ST coilovers will be my next purchase. Its hard to mod, being a student and having to deal with car payments. Thanks for the compliment though

I'm in the same boat as you man. Luckily I have a decent job to get by in the meantime though.

if it were color matched it would work. if it had an m3 lip on the trunk it would work.
