Hey guys, I know this style isnt for everyone obviously. Some people like the subtle look and others go all out but this was the main look I was trying to achieve reading vip car magz and seeing whats the latest style is in the VIP scene.

End of the day im extremely pleased with my car and have no regretz. Some upcoming things that im doing is vinyl wrapping my Luxury Abstracts to match the theme and also smoking out the taillights again.

I really do wish you guys can see my car in person, I got alot of 50/50 feedbacks on my color choice in facebook from pictures they seen but when people seen it up close for themselves the negative becomes a positive, not because they want to be nice but the color does no justice on big body cars and I hope I can show you guys at bimmerfest 2013 so you can have a look for yourselves.

Other than that I appreciate the comments and advice thanks everyone for following my build and hope to see some of you guys getting into the customize thing as well, message me if you have any questions thanks.

I think it looks great, it is a show car and it has to stand out, if it was a daily street car it would be a different story congrats

Damn Pelon! I have not been on here for a bit but your ride has completely been transformed!

It came out looking like nothing like nothing else out there and it looks sick!

Congrats!

Every mod done to the car compliments each each other making it tie all together. You had the balls and risked a lot but at the end it all paid off, because that paint colour was either a make-it or break-it scenario. Best part is, we all know pics rarely ever due a car justice. Congrats on accomplishing your goal bud.

No because it has too much blue, and I needed some black to calm the blue tone down. The lux life decal is my company we do vinyl graphics and paint protection. The diamond seven is my facebook name so when people see that word they know who it is
