Phil M picked up his 2015 BMW M3 in May of 2016 without any intentions of modifying it, but being a lifelong car enthusiast, it was only a matter of time before the itch to change things up took over. Any modifications that could be done without a lift were done by Phil in his own garage. Of course, no build is ever truly finished, so the M3 continuously evolved to the form it sits in now.
