Anyone can slap on wheels & suspension & call it a build nowadays - 2020 AW M2C

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hey guys, wanted to share my (in-progress) build so far. I feel like I've got it in a good place but of course there is always so much more planned & so much more that I need to do. Posted below are the most recent pics & after that it's a timeline of the build progress.

Background
This was my first 'true' project car/build. I've never really had a 'hands-on' background with cars before & this was something I wanted to learn on and just have fun with. Took delivery back in July of last year and have slowly been adding things on over the past year.

Documenting all my progress on my instagram: VFK_By_Midnight

Full list of mods/parts:
- Wheels: HRE R101 LW, 20x9.5 front ET:+23, 20x10.5 rear ET:+39
- Tires: Michelin Pilot Sport 4S, 255/30 front, 275/30 rear
- Suspension: KW v3 Coilovers
- Front + rear reflector delete
- Full Akrapovic exhaust (cat back + mid pipes + downpipes)
- Xpel Ultimate Plus paint protection film full front/hood/rocker panels/trunk/partial roof
- 15% tint sides & rear, 50% windshield
- Carbon fiber mirror caps
- 3M carbon fiber roof wrap
- Bavgruppe Designs red angel eyes + switchback
- Bavgruppe Designs RGB halo headlights
- Custom black painted headlights
- Bimmercode mappings (seatbelt chime, yellow hazard light delete, etc.)
- Full RW Carbon aero
- 3D style front lip
- RWS side skirts
- Kholen style rear diffuser
- RWS spoiler

Planned Mods
- Crankhub fix
- Stage 2 tune
- Eventuri intake
- Camber plates
- Custom sound system (mids + sub + tweeters)
- Interior lighting
- M performance steering wheel

Ooo Buddy! This is very well-done! You come so close to the overstyled no-mans-land but you have excitedly avoided it. Great job!!!

I dig it. A lot! Well, most of it. The fake carbon roof is cheesy.

beautiful build! I can see how these headlights could be a bit too much for some.

Dude - love the build, and the fact that you did it in your own garage. Your pics from April 2020 on Instagram had a much better stance IMO, these pics look too slammed for me... otherwise, will be using your build list as a template for mine! Love the HRE's and was unsure about going to 20's- they look incredible.

I love the thread title - this is my pet peeve when people talk about their so-called "builds"

Never would have thought that white could be so impressive. Absolutely stunning beast!

Car looks amazing! Really impressive photography too. How's the ride quality with such low profile and stretched tires? I personally like 18s or 19s with some sidewall. To each their own

I'm sorry but every build is a build IMO. Whether it's a reflector delete or a track setup.

Your car is indeed beautiful.
