Santua's M3P Build Thread

Any updates?
Yes! Sorry, I have been quite busy, and in all honesty, I forgot to post an update.

Firstly, completed correcting the paint and coating the car with CSL. Honestly, I think it came out pretty decent, though I think next time I would like to have a more aggressive compound and or different pads as well as a smaller polisher for those tricky areas. After completing the process, I applied the Tesbros side/rocker PPF on both sides (covers the whole rocker and the lower part of the doors). Very easy to install, includes slip and tack solutions as well as a squeegee, would highly recommend.

Also, perhaps the biggest change has been the wheels. I traded my Signature SV104s in Royal Gold (which were fantastic btw) for a set of Vossen EVO-2Rs with a member on the forums.


Personally, I love the look, plus it allows for the calipers to pop a lot more. The new setup is significantly different from the SV104. First, it is a staggered setup with the fronts being 20x9 and rear 20x10.5 wrapped in Michelin PS4S 245/35/20 and 285/30/20 respectively. For proper fitment, a 10mm spacer was used for the front. The rear appears to be fine, mmm maybe could do with a 5mm.

Also in the pictures you'll notice that I kept the front lip off, and the introduction of a new awful quality spoiler lol 😂. Regardless of my thoughts on the quality of the spoiler, I think the look is perfect for the Model 3, high-kick style and follows the lines of the hatch. Though, I might try the new Europa spoiler from RPM at some point.
