im glad youve got the balls to ask for opinions here. i happen to like cf, i dont think its corny, and think a subtle touch like that will look great! that said, i am happy with my completely stock 328xi, so i must be a shitbag too.

That must've been a major pain in the ass

I give you credit for that- other than I'd say it's a pretty slick and subtle cosmetic mod that goes pretty well with the car.

will look great once you get the bumper painted and on the car. a nice subtle touch for sure.

Just looks a bit off now. I'm sure once you get the contrast with the paint, it will look better. Very unique though.

Exactly what I was thinking...the gloss of real CF would look really good and be unique for sure...I like it as is too and I usually loathe vinyl "cf".
