EDITED OP

Hey all,

Been a while since I posted here, but figured I share with everyone what I've been doing to the ms3.

I traded my 2010 mz3 for a 2013 ms3 with tech package back in May/June of 2013. i love how it drives and handles itself. aside from the torque steer I absolutely love the car. Here's a picture of when I first bought the car


Since then I haven't really done anything to the car other than the LED interior and exterior lights




Before SEMA I bought some BC coils and bought some SPC rear arms during black friday and installed them over the weekend

No more hellflush status like my previous 3

dropped about an inch and half in the front, the rears need to be dropped a little bit more to level with the front and still need to align everything back which I have scheduled for this Friday. For you Cali Bay Area peeps, I go to AutoRnd in Fremont the only place I trust my car with.

I haven't touched anything in the engine bay yet or have even bothered with performance parts yet. Reason being that I want to get all suspension and appearance mods out of the way first before tinkering with performance, if i was to upgrade performance. I absolutely love how the car feels as it is and the current power it produces.



18x9 RPF1

UPDATED OP

It's been a while since I've posted. Much has changed since the last time, I've started with some go fast bit. Since then I've added a Corksport Test pipe, no pictures unfortunately. CP-E Tritton SS catback exhaust, Cobb AP, Autotech internals, JBR RMM. Still waiting for some time to install the JBR TIP and SRI.

I actually talked to my buddy who works at bayson yesterday, told me to sit tight they are in development of some lip kit. My guess it will be the mz lip extension kit since not many places sell it, but I would really want to see them develop a GV lip. I like they have like rear aero aprons for the hatches that also fit the genpu. Its kenstyle I believe like the one on my old 3.
