Hi all! New here in North Florida. I've had my 18 M3 Touring sedan with 2.5L and manual trans, about a year now. Comes in snowflake white pearl with a black interior. I've been lurking around reading up on suspension mods.

Currently my mods are as follows, not much, but a start:

Custom retrofitted headlights, built by me:
  • 2009-15 Nissan Maxima customized bi-xenon projectors
  • BMW E30 clear lenses
  • Black passive demon eyes
  • Philips 6k CBI bulbs
  • Hella Gen 3 46W boosted ballasts and BMW ballast brackets
  • Custom painted plastics inside the light itself
  • 3 light coats of NightShades on the amber lenses
Ceramic Tint all the way around
  • 80% on the windshield
  • 30% front windows
  • 15% on rear side and back window
For the future, I am looking to update the stock suspension, do some appearance and more lighting improvements, maybe some sound deadening to the interior floor and doors. Eventually throwing in a tune. Maybe some aftermarket lighter wheels. All of this will take some time as I am on a limited budget. Planning on keeping this mildly modded as it's my daily and the primary family cruiser.

Completed custom built headlights

After the tinting. ;-)
