Fun With Photoshop [Opinions Wanted]

Hey all,

I've been messing around in Photoshop and made a few subtle "hotrod" mods to my 2006 3.0si. The car sometimes reminds me of the old Hotwheels, especially with the 5 spoke wheels, I just made a few subtle changes to enhance the hotrod effect and was hoping to get some comments on the ideas.

The mods are as follows:
-19 inch front wheels with 20 inch rear.
-Lowerd
-Red Stripe Tires ala Hotwheels =]
-BMW Motorsport tri-color pinstripe

Don't pull any punches.... let the comments fly.

Cheers!

P.S. You can see the stock look in the sig below for comparison.

Not diggin' the pinstripes
The tires on the back look a lot bigger than 20"
Stripe on the tire isn't horrible
LOVE the lowered look, but get it off that road!

OK... just for ****zngiggles... here's the car completely stock the the red stripe-tires as the only mod.

Note, the rear tires are Goodyear Eagle F1s and the fronts are stock Bridgestone RFTs. The RFTs have a more rounded shoulder and therefore a slightly smaller sidewall so it may appear as if the rear tire is bigger; other than that the car is bone stock.

My opinion is "What is this doing in the 2009+ Z4 forum?"

Glad it's just a Pshop. The second photo looks better. The stripes are

OK... Been playing more with Photoshop and I have something that I've been toying with, I love my wheels and personally think they're about the best BMW has to offer for the Z but they've always bothered me because they feel too small due to the inner wheel. So I've been thinking what it would look like if I polished the outer lip and had the inner's powder coated something a little darker such as Titanium. You're thoughts on the photoshops below.

P.S. Hopefully the moderator will bump this to the other Z4 forum soon...

Cheers!
