***New Car! E90 335i Space Grey***

Just picked this up 2009 E90 335i - Space grey with the light saddle leather interior. Really impressed with the car. It has the sport and premium packages which is a big plus.

*The wheels came plasti-dipped which I took off due to the crappy layer that was put on by the previous owner.

*Swapped out the chrome grille inserts for black.

*When I tinted the windows I decided to smoke out the side blinkers and reflectors.

*Also carbon vinyl'd the side door panels.

For the future I am looking into Avante Garde M310's for wheels. Let me know what you guys think of those and some other choices! Thanks

Space Gray

what are the specs of your tint... looks good.

I'd color match the reflectors on the front bumper, but thats just me.

Great pick up by the way, always jealous of space grays with saddle brown interior... which I couldnt find when I was looking.

I'd paint match the side reflectors - the smoke stands out just as much as the orange....

I got a few recommendations to paint match the side reflectors but I don't care that they stand out like the orange...I wasn't trying to cover them up. I was going for the whole smoked out look. Thanks!

I just went with 20%. Deffinetly the right choice. It is the perfect amount of tint. Its 20% all around!

I thought I was going to!
But it was old and like glopped on so when I tried to take it off it didn't come off in one piece. I had to use goo-gone to get most of it off but It was pretty successful in the end.

Nice man. You did yours exactly the same as mine. Haha. Same color and rims. Also dipped it. Plus did the kidney grills, model badge, mirror caps and gas cap. But recently got some M3 wheels to replace them.

Good shit. Good luck with everything.
