MYBAD135 build thread! 135i -> 1M Montego Blue

First off I want to thank ilikebmxbikes and venom for the help on what parts whats needed and tony for showing me it can be done when I saw it at SEMA.
So here is how the car started off...had many mods waiting when the car got here...dp, jb4, and helix intercooler...then came cf hood and wheels and brakes, then cf trunk. Then in october of last year Vegas had a bad rain storm and i hydro planed on the freeway messing up the drivers side. I was just going to put it back to stock and do some suspension work then I went to SEMA and it all changed and plans got BIG.

Clear your PM box =p I want some details on your rear quarter panels! PM if possible.
Also what is going to happen with your turn signals? I didn't understand what you meant.
EDIT: nevermind those turn signals look awesome!
mine is jet black so it should look blended stock.

Is the paint easy to maintain? By that I mean wash/polish and does it show dirt easily? My white is a pain to keep clean. What kind of progress have you made to yours?

parts are about 3-4k but labor is what kills ya, insurance is paying for my drivers side so that helps a little lol the front is easy the rear is what costs $$$$

The front bumper looks great in blue. Can't wait to see her all bolted up.

The blinkers look nice in blue too. I will be painting mine gloss black to match my shadowline trim.
