Well it depends... thats sort of the reason I decided on clearing them. I WAS going to do a flat black... but you sort of lose all the lines on the wheels and they dont look good with shined tires... But when cleared they dont look bad at all. In FACT you sorta see lines a little more and can get a nice reflection sometimes too. I will post more pics (request angles) but it is night time in UT right now. but i'll for sure post some tomorrow or somethin

1. adding the factory carbon fiber splitters on the stock bumper and the carbon center thing I saw... But I am not really a CF fan. I dont think it looks bad... but i think it can almost make a car look CHEAP ya know?

2. Put and M3 LOOK bumper on it. Just to make it look mor agressive and its like $750 painted through a hook up I have. Sorta POSER-E... but I just HATE the look of the stock bumper on this 3...

3. do the whole OEM conversion and have it look great... but like you said. it'll be a pain and REALLY expensive, because I would wanna do only OEM stuff

See. I just dont think the M-tech is that interesting... At least noto worth the money interesting... and I didn't do spray paint. I used my profestional spray gun. (I used to do body work) and yeah I would like to do springs... but I most likely wouldn't do coil overs. I would do new struts with some race springs. I dono though... I might wanna keep the ride semi livable.

and if all of you cant tell by now. I cant spell for shit.... i'm wee-todd-ed

if you do springs you will have to replace the stock suspension anyways hints why most of this site has done coilovers

and i didnt notice it was real paint, but as you look around this site you will see alot more ideas and things you will like, and you can go there...just research before and look around because it sucks to buy something and see something better the next day...congrats on your 330 and will be watching your progress with her

The M-Tech front bumper looks good IMO. But I agree with the suspension part...

Springs (Eibach Pro-kit, least drop of all aftermarket) & shocks, maybe sway-bars, nothing over the top...

* maybe even the Eibach Pro-system-Plus...?

Yeah for sure. I anticipate that the suspenstion will be a big decision. I'm doing a little research on how the sedan M3's suspension rides and if it'll bolt in. I figure BMW knows best haha

Yeah, it's hard to tell that it's real paint. I have my gun tip set to a pretty narrow spray width just cause there is no reason to overspray if ya dont have to. but yeah. Thanks and i'll keep my eyes open around here and hopefully find some good stuff!

Yeah maybe I just need to see one in person! damn utah and everyone only buying xdrives! haha jk.

and yeah i've had some eibach's before and I liked them. and I agree with the not wanting to drop it too much. I dont like the SLAMMED look.

I can't believe you've done this.

As far as spoilers go, I love the subtlety of the OEM rear deck spoiler. Nice and simple, and a lot less than switching out your whole trunk for an integrated spoiler (Vorsteiner, Karbonwerke). I personally would not put a spoiler like that on my car unless I owned an E92, but that's just me. I've never seen that look on those wheels before, unique!

Sorry guys! I haven't been on here for the last week cause I just bought a house and Qwest is retarded and for some reason takes a week just to transfer service. But I'm just stoked because i'm out of my apartment and into an actual HOUSE with a GARAGE! WOOO! Also, sorry for the bad link! haha But no one gets to see my wife but me haha! i'm sure you all liked that though. However, to celebrate getting the house My wife and I washed our cars! I will post pics soon so you all can see her car too! I sold my E65 745i and bought her a E46 330ci and me the E90. But yeah. Back on topic. Instead of replacing my trim i've been lookin around and saw that some people have been wrapping their trim in vinyl! I like that idea because A. it's not permanent and B. it still can look great without costing $800! Has anyone done this that can give me some pointers/advice?
