:rofl:

Well, I'm looking at my rear bumper and I wanna puke cause it's so stock, haha. I'm thinking about plasti-dippin the bottom part like I did to my bumper to give it an M-tech bumper look. The following pics are stock, blacked out and blacked out a bit wider (which I like).

Less wide looks more real M-tech. Maybe just a tiny, tiny bit wider. Be sure to taper it in and give a nice curve on the edge. Look at the back of my car in my garage.

Here's a little better rear shot.

Should I give it a curve like an M-tech II or go straight down like M-tech I?

I can't pick one of those options. Stock is definitely a big wall O'Silver that could use some relief. I'm not sure that paint or color on the surface will give the right effect without any inset, so I'm abstaining from the vote. But if you did paint it, I would lean towards an MTech-I, straighter paint line.

Pretty cool idea...I like the first one better (with a little curve to it).

I have a spare rear bumper I'll part with dirt cheap (less than I paid) which is $30 plus shipping. A local body guy here said he could put an OEM M3 diffuser and mold it in, I just don't have the $$ right now so it is sitting in my garage. Get it and then you can mess with it.

Jake, put the can of paint down, just because you have black paint in the garage does not mean you need to use it.

I like the narrower look. Good luck on this one. The front looks awesome by the way, i know a little belated though.
