    Been wanting to get rid of the spoiler for some time now. I have finally been able to source a cosmos black boot lid. It seemed the easiest & cheapest way to remove spoiler.

    The results...

    Before...

    After... (poor photos!) Car IS still shiny!

    With SNOW FOAM

    More tham happy with the new look. The new boot lid needs a lot of buffing to remove some scratches & swirls. And nice new BMW badge has been ordered.

    Anyone have any opinions??

    That looks uber smooth, and a complete street sleeper minus the spoiler. Good choice.

    Not sure yet. Kinda like the be-badged look. But being a saloon people may assume it's not an M3.

    Been thinking of trying a matt black M3 badge to match matt black grilles. Or getting the smaller E90 M3 badge. Decisions...

    Also, re-M3 Badge - I'd keep it off. People may think it's NOT an M3, but you know it is.. Nice to see their faces when you put the pedal down?

    "super snow foam" i think. Achieved a completely touch-less clean today. Added a little zip-wax to the fixture. Foamed up alot thicker!

    I'd recommend snowing to anyone. gets super clean in all the hard to reach places & is fun too
