hey steve!

everything is great my way. I've been packing things up and getting ready to move back down to school here lately. I leave on wednesday to go back, but I'll still have internet access ;)

I still haven't ordered the bodykit peices. I think i'm gonna wait til it begins to cool off here in the states so that the prices online will go down. They always do, lol. In a couple months I'll purchase them and save several hundred dollars I'm sure. I know I'm gonna put m3 side skirts on it, but I'm still deciding on whether or not to replace the front bumper or just have the gray paint matched and leave it as is. I like the m3 front bumper, it looks a lot more aggressive, but I don't know if I want to spend that kind of money on a none performance mod.

What do you think?
cheers!

Hey Kyle,

Honestly i have no problem with the stock spoiler, i would definately do a color match :!: You will see an instant difference as the cars lines are not broken up they flow from top to bottom. A well worth and cheap mod :cool:

Other than that all is well... been running around in the beemer all day having meetings, it is a cold and miserable day so it is very lekka having warm leather wrapped around me!!!

How much u reckon the side skirts would set u back. Over here we have a company that has been making Glassfibre replica parts for many many years and do some awesome work. There M3 front bumper is like $200.
How does that compare to an original part ??

Gotta run, another meeting

Cheers bud,

TO THE PUB! :cool:

An OEM front bumper costs around $650 over here, but a fiberglass bumper would be around $250 or something like that. Both of those would include a $100-150 shipping fee tho. :(

The side skirts OEM would cost around $400 while fiberglass side skirts would cost around $170-200

The thing I'm waiting for really is for some people to start selling side skirts on ebay off their m3's. I'd like to get an OEM on fairly cheap if possible so I can keep my jack holes usable. The fiberglass skirts will cover the jack holes and make them unusable.

Either way I go, a color match is in mind. I've been sick of the gray for a while now, lol. Painting the gray to match alone makes the car appear lower as well. Looks much better, lol. :cool:

well, nice to see your routine is getting back to normal over that way.

cheers ;)

Hope you don't mind me chiming in but I saw one thread somewhere that said you could scrub the grey paint off the sideskirts and it'll be the color of your car underneath. From what I read, it only works on the sideskirts. The new paint won't have clearcoat but it will be green instead of grey. Give me a bit and I'll try to find the link, or have you already heard about this?

Don't mind you chiming in at all. ;) I enjoy more discussion on here.

I have heard of this already actually. You more than likely came across some discussion I had about it in the past on a different site. I asked a lot of questions about it in the past, but decided against it becuase I'd have to paint the front and rear bumpers to match anyways.

I saw where a lot of guys did this and sprayed some clear coat on it and it looked great!

Ok, I might try it when I've got some free time, because the gray stuff is already rubbing off in some areas on mine. I do agree with you about keeping the jack holes. (At least until I get my own hydraulic lift :D

Kyle Kyle Kyle..... how goes it ?

Please go for the color match... u wont be sorry... the car's whole look changes. When i was still working up in Central africa my drift car was a 333 e30 shadowline and the bloody thing was fully color coded but not the thin black strips on the sides below the side skirts and it made the car look like it was standing on its toes... best thing i ever did was color code, then she looked Mean as FU*%

Have u tried finding some oem M3 bumpers at th elocal scrappy? maybe a M3 that had a rear end shunt and the front and sides are ok.

If u got some spare time on ur hands just drive the Beemer over to my factory and i'll custom make some M3 carbon fibre kit for u... its just a quick trip... come on over :D

Enough of that foolishness... back to work.

Talk to u later mate

Cheers

If only BMW's were as watertight as the old beetles. I think you might have more than one taker.

Oh don't get me wrong Steve, I'm definitly going for the color match...... eventually, :D. I'm just waiting on some prices to fall on the peices, lol. Everyone knows that the US Dollar is slowly going to crap and it's getting harder and harder to afford stuff, lol. The prices always drop on non-summer seasons for exterier sports car peicesm, thank goodness. Color matching makes a car look like a completely different car, lol. I really don't understand why they didn't do this before 1996?? I mean I know what they different shade is used for, but it wasn't really needed, so they could have switched way earlier, lol.

Like 96is said, you'd have a lot of takers if these cars would float. :D The visit to Africa alone would be worth the whole deal, lol. I've never been on that side of the world. I'll come visit someday. ;)

In the meantime I'll be trying to find a close salvage yard for those parts.

cheers guys!
