This archive thread is to inspire other 630i owners to be daring enough to go outside the box & mod your case instead of buying another case :clap:

This archive is to mainly show exterior case mods & it's process.
This archive is open to show interior case mods depending on the complexity of what was done.
This is how you can get your chassis/case mod posted in this archive...
PM me a link to your mod thread and I'll review it & take from there :D
