    That shifter needs to be placed closer to the driver.

    Vox, that M3 looks amazing. Can you snap some interior pics?

    Thanks for the pics Vox. It is a nice looking vehicle. Still would love to see a picture of the interior as that post earlier indicated it has some unique additions.

    Now, if Ford would only redesign it's logo. The typeface hasn't aged well.

    A well modified car will mostly be indistinguishable from stock. Unfortunately the idea of modification to many seems to be centered around the act of letting everyone know your car has been modified which by proxy renders your car un-sellable when you want to and in more extreme cases a fucking laughing stock.

    I looked at the pick and shrugged my shoulders, so B drives an M3. Then I read that pretty extensive list of mods -I credit him for fooling me into believing that car was bone stock.

    Nicely done.

    Vox, the car looks great, and I'm glad to see the stock look retained. Pics of the interior, please?

    nice looking M3. I wonder how it worked in the winter. I'm sure it was parked in the snow. All BMW's, Merc'c, etc suck in the snow unless AWD.

    Thank you.

    The wheels are a good example of what you are talking about, because it was the result of an attempt to make the same design as the wheels on the CSL but improve on them in every way. The basic result is a one piece 6061 T6 heat-treated, 8000 ton spread-forged mono-block "CSL" wheel that is an inch wider at all four corners that what the CSL had, allowing for wider tires and filling the wheel wells with a bit of racy camber, but the same weight as the narrower CSLs. The RG-4 would have been a lighter wheel except that all of us agreed when we committed to the wheel that we wanted the regular Roundel at the center.

    I don't remember how many sets were made, but there weren't many, and of course, there aren't going to be any more.

    Well, mine is lowered from stock. So, there's that. Nevertheless, when it's on its winter 19"s with Blizzaks, it's not too shabby, particularly when compared with all the AWDs that run "four season" tires.

    Do you have a midget come in and clean your penis? You know, for "aesthetic" purposes.

    Well, I agree with you there then, your car looks great for the wear and tear. What does your odometer look like?

    I like the stock look; in fact I am impressed that you got the Euro-spec Individual stuff and the Euro bumper, but am cold about the wheels and the brakes tbh.

    How is your interior trim holding up, ie. the mouse fur around the door, and window frames? The car looks pretty great, and you're being very environmentally friendly by keeping it, unlike people who buy new cars.
