    An M3 hood doesn't fit the sedan. I believe it's wider.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    It will with adjustment to the fenders. An extra step for sure, but my whole front end needs to be realigned anyways

    Few more photos of how the car sits now. Still trying to figure out that hood

    New lenses for the used headlights I bought. Going to see how well they work before buying new bulbs.

    O boy, getting addicted to buying car parts. Already researching the next maintenance steps. Control arms and tie rods. Any recommendation for better than OE performance?

    Thanks JohnRando. We are both in Socal, we should meet up some time, go for a drive, talk about cars. Mine should be on the road by Wednesday!. Whether I have a hood or not lol.

    Been a lot of work to get this car back together, but I have enjoyed almost every minute of it. My mechanical skills have greatly improved and this has been the most challenging work completed to date.

    It seems like the ZHP control arms are pretty solid. I haven't read about anyone upgrading to something better.

    Thats what i've been finding as well. Going to tackle this depending on how bad the shimmy in the wheel is. Before the accident had a little flutter in the steering wheel around 40 - 60mph, depending on temp of the car. Right around 50 once I have been driving for awhile, but lower down first thing in the morning before the sun is out. If this is worse now, I'll tackle it right away.

    If not, Buying some headers from Luca (BossZHP)

    Going to have one bad ass sounding car.

    Good work. I didn't know that you are close by lol The M3 hood doesn't fit on the sedan. It's both too short and wide. It will require more work to get the hood to fit. The curvature is kind of weird, also where it touches the fenders. Those will need to be cut down to fit flush. Even after all that, it doesn't look that great. I would go with the CF hood. Make sure you buy the M3 hood shocks else the hood will start to bow out. Heck even with M3 hood shocks, it might still do it (ask me how I know lol).

    Pretty much ZHP arms are good since they have the ball-joints. There's nothing really better for tie-rods either.
