How I spent my new year. MODS

So I finally got home from Iraq for a little bit and had a few things waiting on me that I bought myself for Christmas to go on my BMW.
I didn't get a chance to take as many pictures as I wanted. Here are a few though of the progress. I am not quite finished yet because they shipped the wrong exhaust and I am waiting for them to get back with me on a replacement and I also had to order spacers for the wheels because the fronts are rubbing the new coils. Thanks to everyone that helped out.

What went on so far.
ST V1 coilover suspension
TurnerMotorsports Sway Bars
ATE Slotted rotors
Axxis Ulitmate Street Pads
Clear corners
Clear Sidemarkers
Red/Clear/Red Tails.
18"x8.5" CSL Replica wheels

Still needs to go in
K&N FIPK
Conforti Shark
UUC TSE3 exhaust (hopefully if it gets shipped soon enough)
Wheel Spacers.

Still Needs to get fixed
Some oil leaks
Steering pump leaks
Transmission pan gasket leak

Before:



Durring:








After:



After I get everything completed and the thing washed I'll take some good pics- plus get under there and take some of the sways. Everything went on relatively easy.

UUC TSE3 | ST V1 coilovers | TMS sways | CSL replicas 18"x8.5" | ATE slotted rotors w/ Axxis USP | Clear lights all around

It's a coil over suspension system with ride height adjustments. It's a sub company of KW suspension systems.

Slamming BMWs to the floor is for:

A. People who take their car to the track
B. People who in their minds think they are impressing all their homies who are still driving around in their Honda Civic EX's. Yo go, dawg.


EDIT: your car looks very tasteful, don't lower it anymore.. thats right about stock M3 ride height right there.. looks great
