BSM Stock 320i.. for now..

Crappy photos, I know but they were quick snaps from my phone. I know she needs alot of work but time is a limiting factor. It's a 320i at the price of an M3 over here, with a four banger but it's good enough for now. Let me know your opinions please.

So far what I've done:
Flat black kidney grilles.
M3 replica trunk lip.
Blacked out badges.
Tinted sticker on taillights and headlights (I'm not sure I like the headlights)

Coming soon:
White angel eyes (they're on the way)
Exhaust system (torn between Remus and Supersprint)

Nice ride... Don't really like tinted headlights and tails though. Your next mod should be wheels instead of a exhaust system.

Why not just buy an M3 in America and ship it back to Cairo?

IMO the headlight tints don't flow that well but the rest of your mods look good but +1 on getting a set of wheels before the exhaust.

thanks for sharing the pics and keep up the great work!

The windows were actually tinted. 20% rears and 40 fronts but had to remove them thanks to the law enforcement here.

You're right about the headlights. I don't like them either. I was only planning for the taillights but did the fronts too for protection. I like the rear ones tho, here's a better picture of them:



They look even better at night.

Customs. It would end up here costing around 1.6-1.8 Mil EGP which is equivalent to 230k-260k USD.

Thanks everyone for your comments. About the wheels, do you guys recommend a good set of wheels? I'm trying to avoid black wheels since I don't like to appear moving on nothing. Also I can't go bigger than 18s because of the poor road quality over here.

Should I install spacers for the current wheels until I upgrade to the newer setup?
