Clear Bra and other subtle visual mods to my 335is (pics)

Had my baby for a week and it's been terrifying every day on the freeway... but I managed not to get any rock chips before my clear bra appointment this weekend! The installer was great and took the initiative to smoke my roundels to see if I'd like them. I did so he proceeded. Then I decided a debadge on the rear was in order to gain symmetry. Left the emblems on the side panels though.

He also was kind enough to smoke the side reflectors, but fret not as they till glow quite brightly when light is shone on them (evident in the pics).

Before going on to the pics, I want to enthusiastically recommend the TintMonkey in Gaithersburg, MD.

Looks great. Not sure about the roundels...I think black/white or black and grey cf would look better. Good work though.

Thanks! That's the beauty of personalization, isn't it?
