Industrial Surroundings...

Miata13 - Here's the picture I took in the showroom. The camera does not do it justice: I sweated this one decision the entire build/transport period! It is really a great color. I was worried it would be orangey looking, but it is not in natural light.

Thanks! We had Coral Red in our Glacier Silver F31..that too would look great with Mineral Gray...but then I think of the lesser cost/greater durability of Black Sensatec...but wonder if that'd be overall "too dark" with the all black interior & headliner???

Can certainly appreciate the "dilemma" of color choices....glad (from that aspect anyway!) I have time

This girl was really apologetic for smacking up my car, but it wasn't her fault at all... I'm surprised she wasn't hurt. She got T-boned on the passenger side of her Acura and did a 180 before careening off a Ford Ranger and then into me with enough remaining kinetic energy to push me into the white car behind me. I was waiting at the intersection...




Almost 2 months later, I've got my girl back.




outwardly at least, she's good as new.


I had to drive a Nissan Rogue for almost 2 months... I'm glad to have my car back. My resale value is officially toast...

oh, and to make things even better, the illegal that caused the accident was never caught. AND the Jimenez in the Ranger (the 2nd vehicle in the accident) tried to sue me. ME! WTF?

Did you claimed Diminished Value to the insurance of the Driver that hit you?

The driver that hit me- the Acura driver- wasn't at fault. The person that caused the accident was apparently never caught. I don't really think I have a claim in that regard against her or her insurance company.

That is messed up!

So, you paid the deductible for your car repair ...

Yes, I had to pay $250. The accident fell under the UI/UIM part of my own insurance policy since the culprit was never caught- the assumption is the guy that caused 4 vehicle collision probably didn't even have insurance.

Headlights are stock. It may be the pic angle or lighting that makes them appear that way.

After focussing first on having my m235i drive the way I like it it was time to add some personal touches.

I always liked the Abu Dhabhi dealer design of the M235i way back when the car first came out. I used it for inspiration. Had the center piece of the diffuser, side skirts and grille inserts painted in "Ferrari Red". Also added M side decals, clear reflectors and exhaust tips (yes, i know fake Akra onces - but for the price you can't go wrong).

Very happy how it turned out. And all together a very affordable mod.

Wow, what an absolute stunner! Did you have BMW de-badge the xDrive or did you do it yourself?

Wow..that last interior shot reminds me so much of our former Coral Red interior F31. Love the Mineral Grey/Coral Red combo!

Thanks, I had my dealership do it for me prior to delivery.
