my 01 coupe

been here for a while, never posted much, but decided its time to share my ride. i got one crappy phone pic of it, but i will add more high res pictures soon.

i got my mods listed in my sig (might have forgotten something)

also, here are the things to be done to it in the near future:

-complete repaint (including fixing dent, and small dings)
-re-tint the windows to around 20% all around
-M3 mirrors (i got one busted mirror, found it cheaper to get a set of m3 mirror's then to replace with one stock)
-hopefully OEM lip kit.




EDIT:::

here are some pics I took today, as you can see, the condition of my front bumper is horrible, the previous owner of this car has the car repainted with some cheap stuff, I'm planning on repainted the whole car sometime in the next few months so I wont have the rest of the body looking like the front bumper

ps. yup, mirror needs replacing, ordering M3 mirrors soon.

That's cool. You should head back to that same location when you get a better camera working for you. Go at the break of dawn, you'l; get some crazy pictures.

Re: my 01 coupe

You should consider painting those calipers and drums black. And please don't get M3 mirrors... Those look great. On M3s.

Re: my 01 coupe

and no, i was considering when i had the driver's side mirror broken, but i got a good deal on the OEM ones, so i'm sticking to stock mirrors.

Re: my 01 coupe

Yeah, silver can look okay, but the nicest OEM brakes I've seen were painted black. Mainly because they don't call attention to themselves. Silver or red calipers tend to draw the eye to that area, when you don't actually have anything worth looking at. Painting them black makes the eye naturally focus on the wheels, but if you're specifically looking at the brakes, it's very clean.

Re: my 01 coupe

actually i never thought about that, not such a bad idea then.
i was actually going with a black on black theme, but thought to give a silver touch to the brakes to make it look clean, but black might actually makes more sense. thanks bud
