I got the M3 wheels off craigslist.. took a little while to get around to sanding/priming/painting but finially done. Blacked out the grill and front roundel. (steering wheel roundel too) i like the blue in the roundel on the wheels better than black.. i tried it, but ended up going back blue... sorry for the rainy day pics.. but i've grown board today.. anyway.. what'd ya think..

I'm thinking 80 views and no comments speaks volumes. Wheels are virtually invisible.

thanks.. sorry it's rainy and ipad doesn't magnify light well.. especially shooting at blk. here's one from right after i put the first wheel on, dirty but you get the idea.. it still had the blk roundel, which is now blue.. and here's the day i did the grill and hood roundel as well.

here's the post from when i got the wheels.. the 12mm spacers up front and 15mm rear worked great. i initially staggered teh tires w/ 225 front and 235 rear, i just got new tires and went 235 all the way around.. not sure which feel i liked better. i may move these wheels to my wifes' silver'08 335 and get her a 5 series soon :)

Looks good, I like it. I'd go with the black roundel on the wheels as well, for the complete look. And some tint on the windows. Nice job!

windows actually are tinted as dark as legally allowed here in alabama.. i did the blk roundel in the wheel (pic above) but ended up liking it better blue:dunno: crazy i know. i wish we could still use limo tint here..

The orange fender reflectors now look out of place...and you're not going to "candy" the tail lamps? Where's the "Darth Vader" window tint? You're half way there!

Your right...I've been looking at what I have been working on so much I couldn't see that...nothing like a fresh set of eyes to help. I ordered the smoked/dark markers and reflectors. Tint is as dark as legal:thumbdwn:

It looks great. My 3 series looks/feels like an old lady's car... But it was my wife's.

Your missing the smoked tinted tail lights.

Chop362 10-02-2012 06:11 PM

Now you have too much black..:thumbup:

The wheels need a color stripe around the rim edge to set off the image. Red would be good.
The driver should ALWAYS wear black to "encourage" the "total" image...just sayin. This would be the "LA way."
