BMW E46 M3 Styling

This is actually my own M3 that I purchased as a little project with the intention of having it styled by my fantastic team ‘AW Style’! (We have done lots to this little beauty).
To start we fully stripped the car of it’s bumpers, lights, grilles and badges, then we fully repaired all the bodywork and bumpers, next we painted all the bodywork, mirrors, mouldings and surrounds in black, then we applied a number of light coatings of our prismatic effect paint over the bodywork. Once this was finished we applied three coats of our UV protect lacquer to all the painted parts and panels.
Next to be repaired where the alloy wheels, these were repaired and re-diamond cut with black painted inner spokes. Brake calipers were then cleaned and painted in red heat resistant  paint, then the interior trims, door cards and seats all repaired and re-coloured. Next was the hydro dipping! All the interior silver trims were removed, painted they required colour and then hydro dipped in carbon fibre effect finish, engine rocker cover in casino effect and strut brace in fine carbon, all parts then lacquered to finish.
We also supplied and fitted a rear carbon diffuser, new Michelin tyres and a few other bits!
