Hi Sunny,

Welcome to The Automotive India. Good to see an M3 owner aboard. Must say your ride looks fantastic. For a 2003 make car, it looks too good. Post some more pics and do tell us more about the mods under the hood, i could spot the K&N sticker on the filter box.

Hi guys,

I wanted to snap some pics of the car with my second set of alloys. Do you guys like the original alloys, or the black with the high polished lips?

I promise I will write a detailed review of ownership. At the moment, I am currently working. Please don't tell anyone! [;)]
