Scott Dean: 2005 BMW M3

Scott Dean's 2005 BMW M3 started off as a daily driver, but when Status Gruppe opened the doors to their shop near his home, the temptation to modify became too strong to resist. What started as suspension and carbon fiber quickly snowballed into a full-blown show build thanks to his team and sponsors.
