It's probably the headlights. That car is truly nasty.

All of the work/parts was from LTMW. I highly recommend them!

Thanks!! That was the plan, hence the recent work, however older 911's hold a strong grip over my heart. I am going to sell the car!!! I'd love for an enthusiast to pick her up, I have spent a lot of time getting this car to where it is now.

Love both cars! Just recently sold my E46 M3 for my 1er. But your 1er looks awesome! Just curious if it's possible to get specs on your wheels? Thanks in advance =)

I find it amusing that e46 m3 owners are getting Amber corners, while we want them gone

Did you need to roll your fenders or add camper to fit your Miro wheels?

Lol!! I actually had the choice of clear or amber a while back and I went w/ the ambers. I personally think it looks good on Montego Blue and the clears aren't my thing.

Before I dropped the car it was driveable w/o the roll although not ideal. With the drop it was unbearable. I rolled the fenders and there was minimal rubbing and I later added the camber plates for handling purposes.

Looks sharp! Those rear "slicks" really make it look like a race car. Any tire rub?

Haha yes, they were completely bald!! Not with the 225/245 rs3's. I now have 235/245's and they rub only when you have some steering angle and you go over a bump. If i had some Apex's I could fit 255's all around easily.

Wow. Sick look. The only thing you are really missing is a performance diffuser / quad exhaust setup / LCI (shadowline LCI tails) that would really get some looks
