Like you poor guys haven't seen enough of this car in the past few weeks. Oh well, I'm looking forward to seeing everybody else's.

I went for a 70 mile bike ride today with friends, so my car served as a beast of burden for a change.

Three posts and nobody commented, and I'm sure that's what you wanted, so, ok, I'll bite.

I'm honestly impressed with this custom job. Everything looks very clean and cohesive. On the other hand, I'm completely heart broken about what you've done to a ZHP. If you wanted a BMW truck, by an X#. I think you could have a bought a Ford F150 Lightening and gotten about the same results, ie, a fast, too low, wimpy looking truck.

Again, craftsmanship : A+, total debauchery of our beloved ZHP : F-.

A couple of shots from the last couple of days. Taken on Beartooth Pass in Montana. Just shy of 11,000 feet and above timberline. I've been giving the new Hankooks a workout.

2.Put in some tints
3.Put a nice kicker system
4.Put the black and white BMW emblems

2.M3 trunk lip
3.Rear window lip (dont know the exact name for this)
4.New Exhaust to make it sound a little meaner
5.Nice 19' rims

Any Suggestions or advice or comments would be greatly appreciated.

^^I like what you've done. Although, I think it would have been easier to remove the tail lights to tint them. I would go ahead and tint your front & side turn signals, as well. (They're easy to take out too).

Your "want to do" list looks pretty good. #3 is called a roof spoiler. I happen to have one for sale, it's ACSchnitzer, yours for $100 shipped. PM me if you're interested.

Over all she's lookn good. It's nice to see another 323i on the forum, welcome!
