My 320d m sport

Hi all I've recently just got my self an 2008 320d m sport in sapphire black with lemon interior. Extremely happy with the car and was bought mainly for the wife to commute to work otherwise it would have been at 335d/335i, very impressed with the economy and drive of the car and doesn't shift to bad.
Had a few BMW's in the past my last one being a e46 M3 convertible which I so regret selling a year ago, only went due to the arrival of my daughter just wasn't practical. I was obsessed with this car and it was absolutely immaculate. I've added a pic below.

Onto the 320d had it a month and just added some 19" csl reps which I got off chris at cm wheels, top fella. Made up with how the car looks now on these what a difference changing the wheels makes.
My next plan is to tint the windows, undecided of which way to go with this on doing just the rear or a progressive tint on the fronts too, any suggestions welcome.
Will soon being getting it in the garage and giving a full detail and try get it gleaming that little bit more. Here are a few pics of how it's looking at the min. Thanks for reading!

Those wheels really do make such a difference. I'm considering the CSL reps for my E92, but still a little unsure as I'm not sure how they will look on an SE model.

Personally, I think your car looks great. No need for tints.

Great looking car there, I think some black line tail lights would finish the package off nicely

P.S - Your old M3 is one of my favourite colours too

I've seen a few pics with those black lights in and i am defiantly keen, is it done by tinting the original lights or are they new units?
Searched for a long time for that combo in the m3, can't wait till I can have another!

Love the e90 the CSL's are great, but good god you must have wept like a baby when the e46 went. That is stunning.

I certainly did to say I was gutted was an understatement. I new I loved that car but didn't realise how much till it had actually gone.

New units. Black lines (or dark lines) is what there known as. Pop up here time to time on the members market or can be gotten on eBay. I got mine off the Belgian eBay second hand do worked out a bit cheaper.
