Few recent pics of the car including vinyl wrap

UPDATED PICS PAGE 2

Have done a few upgrades in the last week. Picked up a 325i se 2 months back now and mods so far include:

-Full M-sport Kit
-Black Kidney Grilles
-Vinyled matte black shadowline trim
-Tinted Rear lights
-Full vinyl Wrap in White with a Matte Black roof and wing mirrors
-Breyton GTS 20" Alloys
-Lowered on eibach suspension

Car started out like this:



After Alloys M-sport and Lowering:



Now:












p.s The pictures don't do the car justice as they were taken on my crappy iphone camera but il take some better pictures in the daylight and post them up.

Opinions appreciated

Didn't you say you were gonna go matte black with the body? May be mistaken.

One word - WOW -

I love it its kind of in your face yet subtle if that makes sense. Such a transformation I'm impressed mate

Although I have to say just putting the wheels on made a huge difference too

cheers for the comments. Yes i was originally going to do matte black but after seeing a matte black 6 series everyday that one of the next door neighbours has i decided not to get it and iv always wanted a white car anyway. Also i started to feel that it only really suits likes of an M3, Ferrari, Lambos, Ranges etc.

I thought about leaving the mirrors white but then i thought the matte black just on the roof would better with the mirrors done aswell to compliment it along with the whole white and matte black theme iv got going on with the car.

In the end i payed 1100 for the full vinyl wrap and tinting the rear lights with totally dynamic. It protects the paintwork and you have something like a 5 year guarantee on the wrap.

If it was my money I'd wrap matte black for sure but keep the rears the normal colour.

Nah, wrapping actually keeps paint protected believe it or not.
