That black roof is f*cking sex.


I wonder what my car would look like with a black roof, and black mirrors. Hmmm.

Thank you, I've put too much time and money into her. But I love that feeling when you see her finished or people walk by it and drool.

Brad - Car is fu-ckin crispy like a two piece outta Popeyes!!

Joey- There is a dakar e36 m3 in the San Francisco Marina district with all the black accents most white cars going for the panda look go for, and trust me when I say you would have no regrets and probably get "happy" every time you walked to your car

Karlos- MY GOD that engine compartment is dope like a crack sac!

Nick- MORE PICS!!! Car looks great, LOVE the color and the rims

Poorboy- I have to agree with Pharmdviper on this... black grills would more than likely look a lot better on your car than the red. The grills in the nose are really there to accent the front of the car and give it an aggressive look, with them being all red the grills loses its contrast and stands out less, making the car look less aggressive (in my opinion)... Black cars can pull off black grills and not lose that look, I'm not sure any other color can (once again, my opinion)

Dukephan- Looking good lets see some more!

Yo Dude do you have true mille miglia 1000's or are they replicas? I have the sames ones(the real ones). Just curious how do you get yours to fit I had to use spring separators and my ride is really stiff
