pics taken on 11-13-03...

only things that have been repainted so far are the engine bay, and the door jams... m3 yellow with white pearl... gonna look damn sexy once the whole car is done.. oh yeah, getting all my vacuum lines and coolant hoses replaced with braided hoses, and my 3000 pipe, valve covers, heat shields all powder coated yellow.... gonna look nice...

oh yeah, the stock intercooler looks kinda cool painted silver "LOL" it's only like that till i get a new intercooler hehe..

sorry all, last time i had a chance to post i was in a hurry so i didn't get a chance to answer your questions:

a70: getting the paintjob for $2600 .... it's a deal considering all the materials involved comes to about $900... (guess the guy feels bad for me being ripped off on my first paintjob)

Johnny-87sup: haha, wheels will remain a secret until i get them in and post a pic :D

improved: i might have some, take a look at my website.

CSR Ma71: painted over the black...

werkkrew: i figure, why waste money on upgrading the 7m when i'm just going to do a complete engine swap later on...

hawkeye: i considered that.... but in black.... all the lines and curves, and ventes etc etc, aren't very visible, it's like that black abflug s900 vs the blue one... i do agree black cars are awesome... it just doesn't accent enough of the body...

(ps. i got an invoice last week saying my wheels are being shipped today :)... yay, now i dont have to hide it too much longer :D )

87silver, DAMN you for spilling my secret!!!!

:rolleyes: :scratch: :dunno:

anywho... those that are interested in the color, i found a car that's almost EXACTLY the same as mine will be...(as for those suggesting other colors..... too late... it's gonna be yellow, cause that has been my favorite color for a loong long time, and with the pearl it will accent the lines and curves very well... also... how many yellow mkiii's are there?... it's different) :)

this is the color (or close to it):
