..and so it begins

I've now owned my BMW for .. a week and I just ordered black carbon fiber roundels ((all around) for $60CDN, including shipping (not bad!) from Car LED Accessories) and matte black shadow lettering ($25CDN inc shipping from Bimmian).

I think the only other changes I'll do next year are smoked LED side markers, black grilles and tint the windows.

I lasted a week before ordering mods.. that's not bad, RIGHT?

I checked ebay I couldn't find it cheaper than the $60 I paid ... (problem is most charge outrageous fees to ship to .ca).

Ah yes.. I think I will plasti the grilles (trim is already black so I lucked out); I also thought that going with factory lettering, I can't go wrong for $25

Oh it hit before I bought this bimmer

Less than 24 hours after I signed the paperwork for mine, it was modded lol.



The itch only gets worse! Trust me I just ordered more yesterday.
