with those wheels, you definitely need to black the trim, and also get a drop. too aggressive to be stock.

Nice, although you should black out the window trim since the chrome doesn't match the red.

thanks for the comments guys!

is the chrome trim something I can DIY to black it out?

Also what do you guys recommend for the next upgrade? A FMIC or Coilovers?

Currently I have:

Jb4
AR Catless DP's
BMW Performance Exhaust
ER Charge Pipe & Tial BOV
DCI
Alpina B3 Transmission flash

The CE's look great in matte black especially with the red time attack on it! To answer your question, yes you can DIY your window trim. However, getting it painted will be better for the long term.

Also, IMO you should get coils first and then the FMIC. Thanks for sharing the pics

I like the look of half-lines more - and there just happened to be a member selling the half at that time

Great choice! Props for not settling for some reps

If I recall, the member on here had them for a great deal. I was contemplating these vs. my LM-Rs initially simply because the price was amazing. Glad someone eventually jumped on it!

I dislike the red rings and generally dislike black wheels.

Also the half blacklines look strange... Go all red.

I have a set of all red tails that are LCI styled that would look nice on your car.

I would plastidip the chrome trim and if you like it vinyl it when the plastidip fades.

Ride height looks perfect IMO.

Looks good. but like others said black out the trim dont do red it'll just look out of place. maybe some other red accents like emblem half red to match the TA ring. Def go with coils first it'll make a huge difference in looks and ride. and get blacklines or get red vinyl instead of smoked on the tails or even lci tails if you wanna spend that much( df worth it though)
