OK I'm starting this thread to document my car from basically the beginning to use as a history of her progression....I have seen other threads doing this and I think it's a great idea.....I will post my mods as I go, and hopefully some of you will enjoy it as it goes along....I'm not a photographer, and most, well all of my pictures will be taken with my cell phone, until such time as someone thinks it is worthy of a photo shoot.....please feel free to offer encouragement, or criticism as you see fit, and maybe offer advice if you feel the need...I will start out with the pics I took the day I brought her home and then go from there.....Hopefully I can post something more than once a year....LOL

So here goes......this is her the day I brought her home.....

Are those 18's?! I want!

Very nice, very clean, very sexy. I'm definitely digging the CF vinyl, I might have to do a bit of that to my car as well.


Now you just need to join the GTR (PTG) hood gang :p
Nope they are factory 19's....

Beautiful car! I've always liked M3s in silver. Reminds me that I need to get a tint too. And good idea on the documentary thread; I might just start one up myself soon.

Well thankfully my girl is in pretty good shape....she has a small rear diff leak, evidently just seals, and had one code that was a coolant temp thing, evidently triggered 7 times but not for over 30k miles so I'm guessing it was fixed and not cleared.....very happy and lucky due to the fact that when I bought her I trusted that the dealer was reputable....

It's funny looking at your pics...

After taking all the weight out and now, temporarily, the dash... my car sits noticably higher. I think I can fit like 3 or 4 fingers stacked under the front and rear finger.
