It does look ghetto and cheap... The line doesn't flow with any body line and it looks like a patch job...

Why didn't you just paint the whole left and right side and leave the middle alone? I know it wouldn't be unique, but it would at least try to make your car look more aggressive.

Real talk? Didn't your mother teach you how to properly talk. I'm not trying to impress you at all.

You posted your pictures here I can say what I want. It's not hate it looks ghetto. You won't impress me with a 6 dollar plastidip fix.
Hahahaha. Lets face it man! You have a ugly 5 series hahaha. Smh

For a fellow Atlantan, ill say i dont think it looks as bad as people are saying. However, it might look cool with the suggestion above.

I think I recognize your apartment complex. Looks like Buckhead/Lindbergh? Won't get specific so ihsanshaik doesn't come key all the plastidip off your car's face.

Real question is how the hell did you crack the lip so bad when your car is like a 4x4 anyway

And yes it looks ghetto. But look on the bright side, when you bust it up again you get to only pay once for the repair

Voted ghetto. The white-out 20's don't help TBH..

I'd paint the entire lower halves as suggested. Or better yet fix and repaint the whole lip!

It looks decent but I would just take it off and live with the scratch.
