Nice, I've always liked BMW's multi-spoked wheel designs, very pretty, but a bitch to clean

Beautiful pics Casey(?)! The only flaw I can point out (IMO) is the black section where the lic plate is. If that's painted silver to match the car, then its win . Nicely done

That is exposed CF and it is left blank intentionally. Each panel has contrast, it helps things flow..

Nice Jake! Love the new wheels. It looks like it needs something. Maybe some tinted windows, that'll tie it together nicely .

It needs a drop...

Im just pulling ur leg . And I dont blame you for not lowering it, my bumper is a martyr. I want to respray it, but itll just get as bad after a few weeks . it really does look good tho, and do think the tints will enhance the look. I STILL have yet to tint my windows, yet it was the first on the list. Haha

Haha, tint is was like in the middle of the list. I have a few more major mods and I'm done with the car.

Let me photoshop some tint. I might do 35 rear and 50 front. NYC limit is 70, btw

WTF 70? Ghey

Idk if its the same for you, but my list seems to never stop . Doesnt bother me MUCH, but im sure the wallet isnt so pleased

Im still unsure if I should do a completely blacked out tint setup or have a mild tint. Either 5% in the rear WS and back windows and like 15-20% in the DS and PS windows, oooorrrrr 30% all around

You good at photoshop ?

Just go 35% all around.

I've been perfectly fine with my tint, and I have 50% on the front windshield that makes it look even darker.

BTW- Ohio tint is 50% front 2 windows
