e92 '09 335i space grey w/ pics

Gave my car a wash today, decided to snap some pics and share them with you guys..

I'm starting to like space grey haha

Plan is to get some 19s... not sure what color though... leaning towards black..

And still debating on the spoiler i want.. Thinking about carbon fiber performance and maybe a pair of splitters for the front..

What do you guys think? any suggestions?

looks good, i really like your rear-end setup...what exhaust are you running btw-tips look really nice, my only suggestion would be the set of wheels that you stated you are looking for and then after that a drop and your good to go

btw the pics look really nice!

thanks... It's actually all stock, just swapped the tips for larger ones that can fill up those holes nicely..

Very nice. I personally would not get black wheels unless they are your winter wheels. Some nice OEM 19s from the M Kit would look nice...

I think dark gunmetal wheels are the best for most colors of cars. But on space gray, that matches too well and I think black wheels are the best color for gray cars. The key is to get some contrast IMO. Gunmetal is just right for every color except gray.

I'd go for the 19" M3 359 wheels or the Avant Garde Replicas as I have. They look stunning with the satin black finish, they only problem is they can look dull after a few days of brake dust accumulation and are a biotch to wash. They will go great with the M3 front end you have.

The tips look great! I think a CF performance spoiler would look great back there, painted or unpainted..

Nice ride!

Space grey is really nice! Actually looks fairly close (maybe a bit lighter) than the colour of my Wife's E46 - SILBERGRAU METALLIC (A08)... No offence to the guys with silver cars, but silver is more often than not a very boring colour, these darker metallics are so much nicer, especially when it comes to showing the curves and contours of our cars!

Given from a fellow e92 SGM friend....

19s, yes. NO to black. Aggressive fitment.
DROP your car
Performance spoiler

I'd say you're golden. The rest is icing on the cake.

Blindside_137 i think we have the same taste haha

Thanks Mashimarho, agressive fitment definately! I actually found some 19s, they're on my friends car right now, he wants to sell them. They're 9.5 and 11 for the rear +27 offset. Might still need spacers but ill see when i put them on.
