Jake your car looks like it wants to kick ass and take no names. Mean-looking vehicle. De-badge looks clean. I want to do it but I don't want people to think I'm hiding the model or anything.

i thought the same about de badging then i did it and not only does it look good i no longer care if anyone else thinks its some other model. Unless you put a different badge on it shouldnt matter.

In my case, if they think I'm a 325 I'll prove them wrong on the spot right then and there.

Sick pics Mo. I'm definately going with smoked corners after looking at those two silver pre-facelifters. I happen to like the preface lift look. It would be better with a slightly wider grille.

I also like the stock 330's rims.

yea in fact i work in Santa Ana. (crazy CA loves to commute)

yea i used to work there back in 2000-05 but if you ever watch the movie matchstick men. they use that parking structure and the convention center as LAX. best part is the top look awesome with either the hotel or the convention center in the background, plus it is normally empty

Dude, he totally was. The lip was resting on it, and I called him out on it. He said he's just had the car for 4 months and is still "getting used to it."

What an ass. When I have to park in spots like that head first I always leave the car like half a foot to a foot away. I scraped a bit once and I was pissed off that I did that. Never again.

Can't see them either, Jake
MissModena - What about the idea of a pink pin stripe above the trim line? More subtle plus if the artist is good they can put your cars name in it. Like at the back of the front fenders just behind the marker lights.
And if your going to do the windshield washer grille in pink, you should do the front grille as well. Maybe do the inside verticals only and leave the surround black?
Hmmmmm...?
