I wouldn't call it frankenbimmer. I mean maybe if you have a bunch of M parts on it. I dig the look even though I'm not a droptop guy. Would it bother you to tell me how much your wheels cost? Actual M wheels or replicas? What'd you do with the OEM's? For sale?!

NO, not my car, you have to click the link!

Those are BMW OEM M6 wheels that are chromed. They are expensive. The chrome alone was $1k.

I have the teardrop wheels, chromed in great shape, no scratches at all. I was going to put them on eBay but I've been too busy. Are you interested?

He obviously enjoys the process of modding, would have been quicker and easier to buy an M3! Then paint it and add some other touches.

why didn't he buy an M3, I'm sure that would have been cheaper than doing all the mods.

Maybe he likes to mod. Or he just doesn't have the whole big amount of cash to pay at once. But I think it's his hobby. His car is also LTMW icon. They use his car too advertise the shop too. If I'm not wrong it belongs to a Korean guy.
