Whoa!!! F-ing beautiful man. I don't know the story but whatever the heartache involved I'd say it was worth it. Congrats.

thanks M8, the headache really was dealing with VLAD and his very poor work and shady business conduct.
luckily i was able to get a shop to repair his poor workmanship and now im a happy camper

Wasn't there another member on here with an M3 that was also unhappy with his work? Definitely looking forward to hearing all about this. Beautiful car btw, OP.

^ Yes, YAN-3 is who you're thinking of. He paid out THOUSANDS of dollars to Vlad for a paint job and is very unhappy. Unfortunately he's too nice to bash him publicly.

OP, your car looks great!

Here we go....need music in the background.

Where did you get the idea for painting the inserts of the kopis. My Alpina have been that way for awhile now, just waiting to see if someone else was going to do it.
