Arrow E9X : Minor Modifications with A Big Impact

Exterrior Modifications : Matte Black kidney grill. [Real] Carbon Fiber Emblems (Front/Back/Wheels). Debadged the Model Number.

All DIY

Grill : 60$ / Ebay
Emblems : 60$ / Private Seller
Debadged Model Number : Free with Household Items

Very simple and cost effective way to give your Bimmer a "customized" look, and not break the bank.

HOW TO:
Replace Grill

Debadge Model Number

Replace Emblem
