    Updated pics of S8AAN - new rims

    I've had the kit on for about a month now, and had these 19" CSL replica alloys on for just over a week or so - suspension needs some work - new stuff arriving this week But here's way too many pics in old school rossalite fasion.

    yeah.... not modding it.... um, er, well - come on! you know what it's like!

    The one rule I'm trying to follow now, is not to spend more on mods than I saved buying the car below list price in the first place.... so far so good!!! So basically even with the kit, wheels, later spec lights and suspension ( though not fitted yet ) it's still set me back less than the car is valued at completely standard. That's my attempt at justification

    Most definitely - but it's all about getting bits and bobs second hand. e.g. the alloys were £400 the kit wasn't much more than that already painted. So just biding my time to see what comes up.

    Suspension to go on is full M-sport setup from a 330Ci M Sport including shocks. Need to fit this soon! Also have new rear light clusters for the bit on the boot lid so the clear bit actually matches the later spec clear bits.

    wish list if stuff comes up cheap....

    Black window lining
    Black or carbon fibre front grill.
    Def needs silvatec style indicator bulbs.. not expensive I know!
    Carbon fibre BMW badges for front, rear and wheels
    A spoiler of some kind, probably just lip.
    Exhaust looks horrible - very dirty and won't clean up - so something needs done!
    Brakes - look shocking through the 19's - won't be cheap though so probably never do this.
    Tints... not sure about how the law would like it round here

    Looks spot on lad, need to get a look over it at some point

    So good to see a modded 3 series coupe without the usual M3 replica wheels. Not seen those before.

    For sure - will have to meet up as not seen you in ages Stennyboy! Will give you a shout next time I have a mate puking his guts up in Glasgow City Centre on a night out lol.

    Not a fan of the chrome M3 wheels on a non M3 - just doesn't do it for me, figured these were different enough and less of a 'wannabe M3' even though they are M3 CSL wheels. But hey, for the money I wasn't being too picky.
