My 02 31k M3 cab photos for comments

Hello guys!

its been about a year since I last visited here
... during the time I was asking Vert vs Coupe,
https://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...t=cabrio+coupe

and wether to drive it back or transport it or wether to get a 335i or e46 M.
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...ight=transport

Well as a refresher, I opt for a M3 vs a e92 335i
https://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...t=cabrio+coupe

well I opted for a cabrio rather a coupe and I decided to closed transport it back from Denver to DC/Va
https://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...ght=birth+baby

here's how it looked then July 06 when I bought and immediately after I replace the 18" for a set of 19" w/ Toyos

after awhile, I was getting restless just having a garage queen, so I install a full extended bra so I wont be bother much with bugs and ding at the front and CF all roundels and clear bra protected them too

Ive also put a /M badge at the front buttom grille, since I always find myself looking at most e46 on the road and the first thing I look at is to see if they have the M scoop. Well I figure, I save time for the others doing the same thing Im doing


oh btw I find that the corner lens was too bright and I wanted something suttle and darker, so Depo smoked corners did the trick complemented by a set of painted color matching front reflectors

GRRRR!

by then I thought I was done until I realized the back rear was pissing me seeing the red trunk brake lights.

I was stuck here since BMW doesnt not make anymore non-LED clear brake trunk lid lights anymore. So, I had to settle for clear LED then

and complemented it with by replacing the /M badge with Bimmians wh.gry/blck stickr

Looks real good buddy. I like it a lot sans the ///M badge on the front. Good looking car.

A few suggestions:

Maybe LED Tail lights like on the '04+?

Stealth Bulbs for the front corner lights.

Other than that, looks great. Good job.
