Before & After pics... iPhone photo shoot! lol

Well... Im finally getting my car to where I really like it now, so I thought I'd share some pics with everyone!

Before... (the day I brought it home, it was bone stock in November '11)




And now... 5 months later with all the mods in my signature

Thanks! I've thought about doing that, but in person I've grown to like how the aluminum trim matches the wheels...
And if I made it black, then I think the wheels would look out of place

Looks great! I might be a little biased though. I also agree on leaving the chrome trim

+1 on leaving the trim as is. It's an overlooked important part that most people instantly try to black out but it needs to match the wheels IMO

I had silver trim with my black wheels and it was terrible until I wrapped it. And until I wrapped it, I actually liked how the silver trim went with the light colored stock wheels

Car looks great!

Thanks guys! Yeah my trim isn't really chrome, its more like an aluminum silver finish, just like the hyper silver colored wheels

Get the m3 spoiler over the performance IMO. The performance goes well with super agressive front bumpers

Thanks everyone!


Here are some before and after pics of the brake calipers and rotors... after getting the new wheels, I just had to do something about the ugliness





And after... I seemed to have lost the picture of the rear though...
