What's next?

So I'm wondering what else cosmetically I should do to my e90.

So far this is what's done:


VMR vb3 wheels
15mm spacers
M3 front bumper and side skirts
Mtech rear bumper with dual exhaust
Black kidneys
Switched to complete saddle brown interior
Complete anthracite headliner and pillars
Led angel eyes
Gloss black roof
35% tint
Real carbon fiber trim
M3 steering wheel
UUC short shifter with ZHP knob


Anything else that I should consider? I feel as if its nearing completion and it feels weird.

I've thought heavily about a csl boot but just don't know how high of a kick I'd want. Also, I don't really mind the mtech trunk lip that's already on there.

I actually don't have any. The mtech rear will be done in a week or 2. I'll take some then and post them.

Ive always known what my next mod was going to be for sure. Now I don't know and its bothering me haha.

My uncle, as part of his business, wraps work trucks with vinyl advertisements and such. He wants to wrap my car in 3M matte blue metallic. looks nearly identical to the m3 frozen blue color. Thoughts?

Dude YES. I saw a dark blue matte wrap on an M3 and it looked insanely good. If I drive out there can he wrap mine free? I'll bring the matte grey wrap.

He already has 25 yards ready to go. Says he will do it for free as long as I just pay for the supplies.

Where do you live? Come help us with mine, see how we do things, and then lets wrap yours haha. He's pretty skilled at it and he has shown me some cool stuff like the tape that you can lay down under the vinyl and then pull up and it cuts the vinyl! very handy stuff.

Yeah, that blue looks so clean it's ridiculous. I'd totally be down, but I'm west coast and NC is hella far haha. You can take a wrap right off without damaging the paint right?

yupp it comes right off. The only issues you run into is if you lay the wrap down on top of paint that is new. Im having the mtech bumper painted this next week. Because of that I should wait about 2 months before wrapping it so that the paint has adequate time to completely cure.

Makes sense. So are you gonna wait or just go for it?
My dream car would be a matte m3 of some kind. Don't get me wrong, I'm super grateful to have what I have, but those m3s are wicked machines. And then you add matte? Gameover.

You missed one of the basic ones (or I missed reading it)- body painted reflectors.
