Monaco Blue + CF CSL trunk. Also poll to help out Spiike

A couple people asked for some follow up on what the CSL trunk looks like in Monaco blue. So here you go. It looks great in person.






Should I do shadowline trim?

very nice indeed.

Any pix of the rear shot...the LCI tails are growing on me.

I would do the shadow trim since the brush stands out too much.

335iMI6, did you use matte or gloss black?

I was inspired by ChrisE92's car since he was COTM... but not sure if I can pull it off like his car.

Mr PharmD, I'll try to take some directly from the rear shots. The ones that I have are too dark. Prelci looks very dated to me now that I have LCI tails, and these also look amazing at night.

I think you should be thinking about dropping it first. And as for your window trim if you black it out you should also black out your grills too. It'll flow better IMHO.

Just finished coding the car for lci tails. Man that was easy, like a 20 min job going slow. I definitely recommend lci tails seeing how easy the coding was (for someone tech savvy).

Definitely do shadow line trim, but get it painted instead of wrapping. It looks much cleaner that way.

Fellow Monaco blue e92 owner here. I am keeping my chrome trim for now as I like the contrast with the dark wheels. Posted some pictures here:
