Whatever you do, leave those wheels alone. They look gorgeous as they are;;

-Matte Black Grills
-Matte Black Window Trim
-Tinted Windows

Jonas, I would black it out, but keep the tail lights red and add an m3 front bumper. And throw on some tire shine so the tires match the rim color.

Thanks brother. I got them even before black rims were "in."
They were at Morristown BMW. I asked them if they could find me a deal on some nice wheels and tires- they were a special order and not normally in stock at any dealer. Apparently the guy backed out of the deal and I scored on the deal- win-win baby!

The black on red is perfect. I wanted black on red, but couldn't find a 335i E92 M-Sport with nav and that color combo.

I think the red is what saves me from looking like I murdered it out, and lets me get away with the black rims too. That and a lack of tint. As if I cared what anyone thinks about what's in and what's out. Meh.

I know you're looking for opinions but I can't offer one. I say, do whatever you think YOU will like. You photoshopped it to have an idea of what the final product will be. How about only getting a few of the parts that you absolutely want blacked out first and then if you feel that you still want to do the rest, go for it. Nobody's opinion on whether it will look good, bad or overdone should impact what you do to your car.

How much do you think 2 red interior doors would run me? I wanna swap the black leather doors for red and black leather.

I honestly have no idea bud. I suppose Tischer would have the parts the cheapest. I wouldn't know the first thing on swapping them though. There is also leather colorizer, but it is tricky to apply correctly.

Here is the perfect setup for that car:

1)Dark tint
2)Blacked out the kidney grills
3)Vinyl-wrap gloss black the window trim
4)Either a light light light black or gunemtal powedercoat for the rims, or keep them as they are. They are beauties!


Dont touch the tails/front lights, thats just nasty....

I kinda like the black chrome wheels, it breaks up the black on black but adds that subdued "shine or "sparkle" that the chrome are from factory.

I would leave the badge but black everything else.

Just remember that it's all based on personal opinion; what looks good to you might not to someone else. In the end you payed for it and you drive it so your opinion matters most.

My car was born with M Sports Suspension, and I guess that's still on it?
I can't be sure because i just bought it 6 months ago and it's a 2007, but I'm quite sure it's still the M Suspension because it's quite higher in the front than the rear.

It's definitely the M Suspension if the car is stiff as hell!

How can I tell if it's still the M suspension that's on my car?
