    JP's Imolarot Coupé - progression thread

    In order to keep track of everything in one place and for those who haven't been around too long, here we go...

    Got the car a few years ago, it stayed stock for a long time but recently the mod bug has hit again after a few years of hibernation. Car is a daily driver so I'm not gonna go too crazy with performance. Yeah, I got the steptronic but only because this is not going to be a weekend/track rat car. I have huge plans for a ///M3 6MT (S62 swap!!!) but that will come later. This car is just to get me around but still be enjoyable to drive so I'm trying not to spend too much on it.

    2008:

    100% Stock = 1 owner, lease return, 30,000 Miles

    Looks great! +1 for the old school BMWCCA static cling stickers too! For a while they were not available. Are they back in production?
