Get 19" 313's, they look much better. 313's are beutiful on that car and I would stick with them. Get 20% tint if you want it dark but not overly done dark and painted reflectors.

Is this car meant to be just good looking or do you want it to perform at it's best? If the latter, then my advice is to stick with the 18" wheels as they will handle and ride better than the 19's you are considering.

Otherwise I agree with the tint, shadowline trim and reflectors.

You think a glossy or matte shadowline trim would look better?

i think in Toronto anything less than 20% is considered illegal.... I've had 20%-30% in all my cars since i heard that... but i like %20... dark enough to look good and keep some heat away but not so dark it out matches the car. ( Mine is black to but i have a 328i)

I have a black sapphire metallic and before i went matte black this is how the gloss black 335is looks with black emblems, gloss black shadowline, painted reflectors, 15% tint, carbon fiber front lip and performance spoiler ! This should give you a really good idea. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=632902

You my friend have a gorgeous car. Few questions though, what size are your wheels, and how much did that back lid cost you?

the iS Cabriolet comes with fog lights and chrome trim. IMO, go with the guy who said drop, spacers and keep the 313's. Thats all i did and... I get compliments all the time. I was going to go with the CF Performance spoiler and splitter but I get so many compliments on just the drop and spacers I'm afraid if I do anything else the subtlety of it will disappear!!
