Picking up Space Grey 330D, gloss black or CF roof?

Sold me 320D last week and have put a deposit down on a E90 Pre-LCI 330D M Sport in Space Grey, Full Black Dakota interior

The modding bug has already hit me before even getting the car, have ordered CF Boot & Bonnet Badges for starts


Now I have two options to go down

Option 1

Gloss Carbon Fibre Front Grille - Made by FK I think with the inwards slanted struts
Gloss Carbon Fibre Roof Wrap
Gloss Carbon Fibre Mirror & Diffuser Wrap
Gloss CF / Black or Red Alcantara Interior Trim Wrap



Option 2

Gloss Black Front Grill
Gloss Black Roof Wrap
Gloss Black Mirror & Diffuser Wrap
Gloss Black / Black or Red Alcantara Interior Trim Wrap



Plans are to lower car in coming months and put some 19" 3SDM 0.01s / M359s (Potentially Black?) or BBS LM Reps and refurb the centres so its BBS gold and a polished dish



Option 1 or 2 guys? Literally on the fence, my only worry with option once is itl be too much grey!

Congrats on the new purchase!
For me it would be option 2. Personally never been a fan of carbon wrap.

Vote option 2.
Not a fan of Carbon fibre wrap.
Also not a fan at all of the inward slating grills.

As far as im aware on the e90 models space grey only came on the lci models as sparkling graphite was the color it overtook

Firstly apologies, its a Pre-LCI E90 (saloon) so it must be sparkling graphite, i get confused between the two and use them interchangeably sometimes

and thanks for the replies, I guess gloss black is the way to go!

I'll be doing the wrapping myself as i taught myself last year so I'll possibly mix it up if i dont like it, material cost isnt too much


As for the inward slanting grill, I'm a big fan, I hate the standard one on the pre-lci, i feel this inward one gives it a much more aggressive look! but everyone to their own
