You are electronically limited to 137mph. It can and will go faster than that with the limiter removed.

rtkach18, are you 18? And don't get the car painted like a candy, Chris Hansen would be all over that.

for crappy candy like no door jams etc probably 1500 and for a good id say5k and showroom condition 8k+. if u wanna do something crazy with your car i would look into getting it wrapped its a good bit cheaper 2k-4k if u pay to get it done or you can do it yourself with time and patience. then you can choose whatever crazy color you want and pull it off if you decide you dont like it or when it comes time to sell.

Seriously though, DONT PAINT YOUR CAR AT 17 YEARS OLD.
Expect to pay three to four thousand for a paint job that will match the quality of the car.

Get wheels, lower the car, and maybe change up the exhaust. Then think about paint.

I am assuming you want to paint the wheels because you don't want to shell the cash for new rims?
if there's anything i can tell you, it's that paint isn't cheap.

Maybe check out the photo threads and look up some mods on this board so that you can get a better idea of what you want to do to you're car.

Google m3 lip spoiler, look at black kidney grills, and above all tint your windows first!

What is the current color of your car, unless it's that shade of bronze i wouldn't bother changing it. I won't comment on "CANDY COLOR" haha.

I meant candy as in that green one, and the rims painted as in the same thing. its not that i don't want to get new rims, its just that i wanted to black out my car, since my tints are pretty dark , it would look pretty nice if the rims were black too. and the current color is silver, click on my profile thats the car.
