SO got the car back last night finally and looks pretty good. Sent a few hours throwing mods at it. Also ran into a fitment issue with the new wheels they are hitting the carrier clip on the front calipers. Need to figure out if I can grind the clip down or if a spacer is required. Heres some pics from a crappy phone.

Looks really good!
If your front wheel is only hitting the clip and nothing more, you should be able to throw on a 3mm space and call it a day. That would be the safest bet. I wouldn't mess with grinding the clip.
Keep up the good work. Car looks great.
I Like The Wheels - some removed the clip
Get a Euro Tow Hook Covers
Get a Bumper Brake Ducts - Loose the Fog Lights
Smoked Headlights would be nice
and replace the Coolant Tank - New looks so much better
the ACS badge don't look so good i would take that off IMO
i see that the bumper tape worked well

Tow Hook covers are bought they just painted them late and still needed to cure and get buffed.
I like the fogs and ordered the yellow French versions
Smoked euro crosshairs with HID are sitting on a table waitng to be installed aslong with an all gloss black painted grill
under the hood detailing and cleanup is on my project list.
and some better pics
Your antenna is quite erect! I know you are contemplating spacers for the front wheels but if anything, they need to come in at least 10mm in my opinion. Won't those rub if compressed?
LOL I was hoping nobody would notice it got bumped taking the cover off and I forgot to put it back. I took the carrier clip off the front calipers and now the wheels dont rub but obviously they arent coming in 10mm. I like where the rear wheels sit the fronts are not my ideal but I dont hate it. There is some rubbing when turning right both going forwards and reverse, at low speed hard turns. I guess differant wheels might be in my future or maybe trying a 215 tire in the front.
congrats and welcome.. car looks clean
Couple little updates....
HIDs and Frech yellow fogs in along with gloss black new grill and new M3 badge placed correctly
Looks great. Looking forward to seeing the leather stitched center console. You have a HID kit plugged in with the headlights?

Got to working on the stereo install. Pulled the door panels rear seats center console all the speakers and the factory head unit. Sony iPod radio in and working with blue tooth mic in the little dash nipple on the HVAC controls. Rear speaker pods in tan looked kind of tires so I shot them in a cool textured black paint and the grills in gloss black, resot the tweeter pods for the doors also black textured came out looking far better than the pics indicate. All RCAs run and speaker wires, rear speakers and crossovers installed fronts up next then the amp and basslink from Infinity. Ready for the leather console and door parts to arrive.
i was right about the car. It belonged to Perillo BMW and was stored for many years then 2 years ago it came out of hibernation and many mechanicals repairs were done.. You got a real nice car my friend!!
