hello,

im still kind of new here but i have previously posed pics. but here are some updated pics of my exterior. i got the car just over a month ago and ive been going for a clean oem look.

added
-oem style from lip from ebay (doesnt fit the best around the corners but does the job)
-plastic dip kidney grills and lower grills
-painted dark grey oem wheels (on winter tires for the season)
-rear lip spoiler form ebay (60 bucks painted and shipped) fit perfectly
-m3 vinyl window trim
-got car already tinted. (would love to tint the fronts but its illegal where i am)
-smoked side reflectors
-jb+ is the only engine mond i added but want a cobb

...now last thing im on the fence about is m3 style sides...hrrrmm? and also what brighter angel eyes and hid fogs

there's still a lot left you could do..


Angel eyes and M3 skirts like you said
LCI Tails
Performance Spoiler
M-sport rear bumper w/ Performance Diffuser
Spacers

That would keep the OEM look

Everything looks nice, but I'm wondering why decided to go with that plastidip color for the wheels. I thought your wheels were just a bit dirty before I read your descriptions.

AE's
LCI Tails
Dimisa/Cyba Tips
M3 skirts
New front bumper
Drop
New Wheels

Got a ways to go still, you can keep it looking "OEM" but with suttle changes. It's all in the execution.

M3 skirts will look great, and +1 for a set of wheels with a drop, but nonetheless i love how your car currently sits..nice job!

Oh it's actually paint, not plasti dip. I wanted to paint them black but my friend who painted them suggested dark grey so there would be contrast. I kind of like it but when spring comes I think I'm gonna go with gunmetal vmr's or something or some oem 19's painted.

If I change the rear bumper...will that go well with my front or do I have to change that too to match?

And is there a difference between rear m sport and m tech or is it all the same?

It's incredible how slight mods transform the car.. Especially a black car.. I love the color choice for the wheels.. Can you pm me what you did to paint them? Thanks man!

I'd definitely do more, but yes M3 sides are a must.
