Yeah I don't know about plastidip seems like a cheap solution to me, probably will go with a powder coat

I plasti dipped my rims this past summer, dont really like em. I mean for the winter its cool but i honestly dont think anything like that belongs on our precious cars. I say just go and get black rims or watever. I even went as far as nightshading the tail lights, alot of compliments and its ok but everyone is doin the "blacked out" theme. So im switching it up and getting machined finished wheels. As far as the grills, just buy them blacked out, i brought mines just a few hours ago for 40.00

Thanks guys.
cyth, yes they are carbon fiber and the product page can be found here: http://www.khoalty.com/bmw-e46-m-tec...ii-bumper.html
I did not use tape or even glue though, as they were too flimsy to me. I had them bolted on from the underside as well as the sides, makes them much more stable and closes up the gaps.

HAHA yea I was a bit worried when I saw them for the first time. At first I thought they looked a little "gangster," and I mean that in the most literal of ways, but they have grown on me. Definitely don't have a problem spotting my car from afar

They seem to perform pretty well. As it is my first Bimmer, I don't have much to compare it to, but it will definitely hug the road like a boss. I did own a '90 Nissan 300ZX which I THOUGHT was pretty "sporty"...... BOY WAS I WRONG

mazinxd: Those are ballasts for HID. Could be for your headlights, or fog lights. Easiest way to tell is to turn everything on and see what's brighter.
