my first mod was my euro license plates. havent got a ticket for em yet! ;-) the people here are so stupid. lol they think im a diplomat. agter that i got a chrome trunk lid, and then i de badged. next i got the chrome eyebrows. i recently got my HAMANN trunk spoiler lip, and a custom made front apron to beef up the front, but they haven't gotten painted yet. dont worry though, ill get blacklines and a carbon fiber roundel next! ill post pictures soon.

PS: can someone see if they can get me exhaust tips for a 320i? they have a diff. exhuast system then a 325 etc. so its a bitch to find!

15% mirror tint all the way around was my first upgrade and it really improves the look of the car. I also got valve caps which I think makes a difference and is really cheap

My friends hate it when I use my rear fogs

Although coming back from Philly friday night, the fog was so dense over the Verrazzano that my friends were glued to my ass trying not to lose me in it

No "good" back spoiler for the coupe yet. Will wait for the M3 to come out and then get the nice, small "M" spoiler for the back....Only one that looks good I think.

Blacklines...Are they just for the 330 or for the coupe as well?? anyone??

this is a good picture which shows what blacklines are..as you can see they are indeed different..the red in the tail light is slightly darker and the upper part are both a dark greyish white..also if you go back to the cosmetic modifications forum theres a sticky called "Blacklines FAQ" up top..just look at that thread
