Don't take it to Leith. Go to performance chapel Hill unless you want to lose warranty.

And ask for Patricia! Apparently, Maurice is good too.

Also, Ryan is a top notch tech who is very familiar with mods.

Anyone know how to help me? I have plans to do body work, paint, and exhaust work. Is there one shop that could do all that?

I want an OEM M-sport rear bumper - needs paint
Also want a 335 IS diffuser - need to set up custom dual exhaust (I have a 328)

What is the best way to go about something like that?

I know the owner of Paragon Collision and am thinking of contacting them in the spring for the rear facelift. Does anyone know of any other places that might paint, mount, and work with exhaust?

Never tackled anything like this so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I got a tip from a guy here to check out Kenny Hawkins Automotive in Raleigh. Getting some work done there in the next two weeks (M Aero) so can't personally vouch for them but my interactions with Corey who works there have been great so far and it gets great reviews on Yelp fwiw

Finally got my appt with Maurice in about a week. It will be a long trip but hopefully well worth it. Thanks for the help.

Just Got my first Bimmer about a month ago, Any one in Charlotte area or surrounding know of any meets or something of the like? Hell even if a few guys want to meet up and do a drive or something. Just think it would be awesome to be part of a fleet of sexy Bimmers flying down the highway haha.

Hey! Thanks! Yeah, it's a very unique color and it has really grown on me. It really changes colors depending on the weather/light.

Per your request good Sir:









All taken with my phone, quality isn't to great. Pictures dont do the color any justice.

Maybe try Dorwart's on Hwy 24 heading towards Swansboro. I know he's one of the few independent garages in the area that will work on BMWs.
