New Pics / Mods: M-Tech Rear + Painted Calipers

Finally got time to hang the M-Tech rear this weekend (thank you to Lewis @ MWdesign for helping me get this in hand)... I figured while I had it on the lift I would pull the wheels and paint the calipers as well. While this is just temp. until I find a decent price on a true BBK, I was very pleased with the results.

BIG thanks to my buddy Vishal @ VP Automotive for opening the shop on a Sunday to help me do this (actually he did all the work)... Any of you ATL guys that have not been by to see his place should really check it out. Great guy that does even better work.

For those that are interested, here are the mods thus far: HAMANN Sides - Pedals - Shift Knob || OEM Areo Lip || Eibach Coilovers || Beyern Mesh 20x8.5 Front - 20x10 Rear (30 offset on all) || Toyo Proxies 245 / 30 Front - 285 / 25 Rear || Active Autowerks BOV || Ultimate Racing Exhaust || Procede || Zetronix Boost/EGT/AFR Guage || OEM Mtech Rear || Ultimate Racing DPs || CDV Delete ||

Amazing!! Looks great!! I am surprised i didnt see you at NOPI in atl. You would have definitely won something.

PS: check out Bavisionbmw.com We are a southeast BMW community. We had about 15-20 BMW's at Nopi this year. We definitely need some more e90/e92's owners in the south

Car looks really good. I'm a bit iffy on the calipers though. Maybe a rotor upgrade when they become available?

Very nice. I painted my calipers red as well a few weeks back. I have had only great comments from it. Plus my gf thought they were really sexy.
