Doh. How'd I miss that. Sent seller message. I have the same arms.

Though I seem to have some binding in the rear. The end links smack against these camber arms over bumps. I am fully lowered in the rear on kW v3s.

Hmm. I've never noticed this. I'll have to take a closer look under there so see if I'm experiencing the same.

I havent checked in here in a bit. Love the E36, and I love that you did the taillights. On my 09 I did the same ones from fishcakes and I absolutely stunned to see them in person and see how much cleaner and brighter they looked. Great mod. And then I traded in lol.

If you ask me, looks wise, a PFL front end, a FL back end and some flared wheelwells would be just about perfect and HEY! thats what you have

Removed chrome badges, paint corrected, and applied these suckers.

Gloss black.




Also wrapped my chrome strip piece gloss black. Just need to figure out my chrome license plate frame situation...

Emblems look great. Always worried about taking them off to paint and putting them back on.... did you use some sort of template?

Hmm. I'm thinking I might just run without a plate frame. Might make it look less busy.

I did. The AMG emblem comes stuck on to a hard template. For the C63 emblems, I just used some painters tape that I applied prior to removing the chrome as a reference.

Rear of the car is finally done.

Muffler delete yesterday along with brand spankin' new tips. The thing sounds MEAN, but there's a a moderate amount of drone. I'm actually loving the note from the muffler delete though. The car sounds totally different. Before, the exhaust sounds kinda flappy if that makes sense? Now it just sounds nice and throaty and you can almost hear every cylinder fire.

Not going to lie, the closest V8 I've ever heard to sounding like this is the GT350 which ofcourse is a flat plain so idk how this V8 sounds like that one...

Current setup is as follows: straight pipes from cat back. Most likely going to re-install the stock resonator to see what happens. Anyone have one for sale in the Bay Area? No clue where mine is...

Were they new badges or did you paint the old ones? If old ones, what did you stick them back on with?

This thread and a few more reviews on M3 forums have me seriously considering going with Muller coilovers through FA over H&R springs - thanks for the detailed review. Car looks beastly with the HMS fenders BTW.

Any updates after a few months of driving on them? Buying new, would you still go with 9k/11k? How does ride quality compare to the H&R springs you had on before?

I love the Muller's. I would however, go with a stiffer setup. I'd go with something along the lines of 11k, 16k, but that's just because I think they're a bit soft right now, even when comparing to H&R springs.

If you want a comfortable ride, 9k,11k, is perfect.

My buddy Matt Dion is a fantastic photographer as you can probably tell:



I linked his Instagram account to this photo so just click through should you want to see some epic automotive shots.

Shameless plug: He's always down to shoot automotive photography, so if you'd like something similar to above, either ping me or contact him via Instagram.

More to come when he's done editing.

Your car is perfect. The stance is is sunning! I think CF side skirt extensions would look nice on your car. Connecting the front lip and rear diffuser together.

Speaking of diffuser, where did you get yours? I need one for my car badly.
