Month and a half with my first BMW

I upgraded from a 2002 Audi A4 to my first ever BMW, a 2007 335i E92, and I am absolutely loving it

My Mods so far:
- 18in black powder coated 189s
- Space Gray kidneys
- HPB Interior, Reverse and License Plates LEDs
- LUX H8 v3 angels
- Plastidipped eye glasses holder to replace driver side panic handle
- 35% ceramic tint

Pics:





(All photos taken with my iPhone 4 with Camera+ with the Clarity filter)

What do you guys think ??

Haha never realized how bad the amber reflectors stick out until I saw these pics again. Definitely taking care of it next.

Congrats ... car is looking good.

Get rid of the reflectors, yes, and also get rid of the awful run-flat tires.

Looks good. Agree with what the others have already posted about what to do next. I would also add to paint/dip the chrome strip black to match the rest of the look you're after.

Thanks for all the comments everybody! I appreciate the welcome

I swapped my stock 189s for the powder coated ones from Zen a few weeks ago and absolutely love them.

CJ421: Runflats are out. I had two run flats in the front, but as of today, I am now running all michelin pilot sports

Things on my mod soon list:
* Replace amber reflectors with SG ones
* Black out the window trim
* Paint lower mesh black

And sometime soon
* HID fogs (same temp as headlight)
* amber led turn signals

Eugeinus: I'm in the Herndon/Reston area and that building is the Oracle office off Sunset Hills

it looks great, you might want to make your window trim black. Im feeling there are two many colors going on with your car (SG, silver, and black) might want to have more unity. that being said, do what you think looks good, its your car
