BMW Spotlight: Reggie's Moonstone Metallic F80 M3
Did you order your car or find it in stock? If ordered, why did you choose the color you ultimately picked, and what was your order timeline like? I ordered my car at the end of November, 2017. I choose this color because it’s one of the BMW colors I’ve always loved; and said I would order, when given the chance. The timeline in which the car was put into production and completed felt rather quick, however, the shipping and delivery took longer than I anticipated. This was mainly due to bad weather in the Northeast. I took delivery towards the end of March. Why this car? What drew you to the specific model that you picked? In my honest opinion, I feel there aren’t too many cars that give a bang for your buck like the M3 in regards to performance, looks, and daily drivability. Don’t get me wrong, there are cars in it’s class that may be more powerful or have more options, however none really check off every box for me like the M3 does. List your order specs: Kept it simple: Moonstone Metallic Sahkir Orange Executive Package 6MT List all modifications: Car has full Xpel PPF (installed by Exclusive Vinyl) Grill inserts, emblem, painted reflectors M3/M4 CS Front Lip Vorsteiner style rear diffuser PSM trunk Spoiler JL Motoring side skirts 3 piece 501 BLK wheels KW V3 coilovers Full AWE non resonated exhaust FabSpeed Downpipes RKTunes front mount intakes RKTunes burble tune Full GTS coding (steering,diff,mdm) IND red start button Dinnman alcantera/carbon fiber steer wheel Full custom alcantera interior/w M tri-stitching Carbon fiber seatback covers Did you face any challenges modding the car? Any tips or tricks for anyone looking at purchasing some of the same items you’ve installed? I didn’t really face any challenges getting anything on the car. Anything I couldn’t do myself was done by the guys at Exclusive Vinyl (cosmetic wise). I will note that the KW V3s came off my previous F80 and the EDC deletes were not direct plug-ins, there are blue guides on the new EDC plugs that can just be shaved down to make it fit. My only advice or tip in ordering any part is try to do as much recon before hitting that purchase button. If you have to reach out to the retailer and be an annoying customer for a few moments, I suggest it (They’ll probably hate me for saying that). I only say that because nothing is worse than receiving an item you stalked on tracking and it either doesn’t fit the car the way you wanted or you don’t like the the way it looks.
