Amber, you'd better treat us to a real photoshoot soon, I'm seeing some wallpaper potential.
I'm just waiting on my wheels to get here to a seriously awesome one. The 16s on the back kind of doom any photoshoot now to failure.

You probably wouldn't guess it anyway, cause I've never actually seen it done. No worries though, it won't be anywhere near the wait my door panels and wheels have taken.



On a new note, I need a europlate for at shows. I've narrowed it down to two options:

http://www.customeuropeanplates.com/...ters=t%C4tde36

or

http://www.customeuropeanplates.com/...tters=Spidey36

Any opinions or other ideas?

I know lol. That's why I just tsked and didn't flip out, silly. More than likely turbo, but that's for sometime in the nebulous future. My philosophy is if you're going to do something, do it right the first time, so that amount of work will take some serious time and saving. And more than likely another car that I enjoy driving so I won't mourn her as much while she's in the shop.

I see, and just my opinion, I wouldn't put a euro plate on, the bare bumper looks way nicer.

Its just to have options lol. I already ordered two different grille badges because I couldn't decide which I liked more until I can see them both on the car. And anyway, if I decide the euro plate is too much, it'll be good on my dash or in my room, or in the album that sits on the seat at shows.

Turbo is way long time off, and I actually haven't read your thread yet. I know, I've been slacking. I'll read it after I dry my hair and do some running around. I swear it on my spidey powers.

I really like the doors. The art is subtle yet dramatic.

I would love to see some interior shots. I assume you had the door cards done in red??

Thanks for sharing

Sadly, when most females ask me that, that's my similar response. Anything more in depth gets me a very blank look. Unfortunately my normal response to "what type of car do you have?" is "BMW E36"... then I pause and remember the year and model.

The entire door panels are re-done, including the black. The back panels are in the works now, the fabric is awaiting embroidery right now. I just took those pictures quickly, waiting on warmer weather to wash the car and take some more pics. Will be better when the carputer is in and the back panels are completed. Right now the back just looks all black, and the inserts are falling off and grabbing my seatbelts.

Well, I already have the two tone, I have tan interior but my door cards I wrapped in a black material, which I also wrapped my headliner, A and C pillars in. I'm actually pretty happy with the look. Just awaiting some racing seats, and M3 rear seats so I can put in my black carpet.

Then I'll see if I want a black interior. If so, I'm going to do the Red with Black. I won't take your embroider ideas though. But I would like to add some ///M3 stitching into it.

Do work Amber!

The ///M stitching was the original idea, then I decided tying it in to the tattoos would flow better with the rest of the car.

Your idea is Amber Approved.

Getting there...... Ordering a new air freshener thingy that mom got earlier today that's super freaking cool for my car, but in the scent that I like. Trying to decide between:

"Coconut Colada - a blend of juicy fruits open this fragrance with delicious vibrancy, while a hint of beautiful florals adds delicacy and softness. In the background, creamy notes mingle with subtle woods to create warmth."

"Eucalyptus Desert - eucalyptus and fresh lavender add a burst of freshness, while violet and muguet absorb the gentle green tea accord. A gentle blend of woods and white musk envelope the fragrance with sophistication and intrigue."

"Lavender Fields - fresh lavender bursts off the top of this fragrance, while nuances of lemoncello and mint add even more sparkle. White florals are sprinkled with a hint of clove while cedar and amber linger, with patchouli delicately drifting throughout."

Leaning towards Eucalyptus. Coconut seems like it might smell too much like the stupid pine tree air fresheners, and Lavender might be too relaxing.
