e92 335xi Body Kit and vinyl trim wrap

What's up guys. Just got my car back from World Auto Body in Allston, and he did an amazing job. Pasquale knows his stuff. He painted and put on a CSL carbon fiber trunk, m3 replica side skirts, GTR vented hood, V style lip, and he repainted my front bumper with the red lining around the kidney grills, and he also painted the mirrors. His color match was amazing too, can't even tell the difference.

Also Rhode Wraps did a fantastic job vinyl wrapping my chrome trim. He's a wicked nice guy and does an excellent job. Highly recommend him. For such a small thing, it definitely made a big difference. As far as performance, all I've done so far is the cobb intercooler. Next year will be the year of the engine.

Next on deck: Corsa cat-back exhaust with black tips is ordered and in the mail and putting a light/medium smoke on the taillights.

Word of advice: If you get a carbon fiber trunk you NEED to dynamat the whole thing. Mine is on order now, but I can't even use my subwoofers right now because the trunk flexes so much I'm afraid of damaging the trunk and/or paint. And it rattles like a mother bleeper.

That looks sketchy as hell, lose the red and just go all black for a cleaner look cuz it looks like a clown with that big red nose or rudolf the red nose reindeer.

I would recommend a drop, reflector delete, m tech front and rear bumper, LCI tails next.

Looks like you jumped the gun on the big thing first.

Is your hood warped? Are the reflections messing with me? Interesting look....

Loose the red mirrors, and way overkill on the red hubs,
paint the mirrors black, the hubs black, paint reflector black.

Wow, waaaaay different crowd on the e90 post than in the masstuning club lol. A bit more conservative here. Definitely something to keep in mind. Different strokes for different folks. Sorry, I just like to have something original. To me, blacked out is just boring because so many people do it. I used the e92 "Darth Maul" car as inspiration, and went from there.

The only gripe I agree with on here is the reflectors need to be cleared or smoked. I never even thought about it until one of the masstuning guys mentioned it. Rotors black isn't a bad idea either. When I have to repaint them next year I might go with that. As far as the m-tech bumpers, I'm not going to hate on it. They look nice, but I like the stock bumpers with a lip a bit better. And no, the hood isn't warped, its the reflection messing with you. And I'm not dropping it because the potholes in Boston are killer. cp-e downpipe, corsa exhaust, cobb tune, stett intake and cp-e charge pipe with tial BOV is all next year.
