Nice! I prefer the BMW caps though. Maybe that's just me.

Yah I just started - have a bit of work to do yet... Any idea where to find a decent place to black out / shadow the BMW caps? I found something on the jlevi website to black out the the blue and white of the roundels & wheel caps with a carbon fiber but havent heard any reviews in terms of peeling etc? Suggestions?

I'd also like to replace front/rear bumpers (Mtech w/ carbon fiber rear diffuser)... any ideas where to find a good deal?

I think the overlays look a little weird and it's hard to get them on perfectly. You can buy pre-made black out or CF caps from some of the vendors here or on eBay.

Tischer BMW has competitive prices for OEM parts so try them for the M-Tech.

I think the black VMR caps look fine on your car. If you go with BMW caps, keep them standard, like the roundels on your car. The CF or B&W ones only cheapen the look of the car.
