My Tiag 325 two weeks in and a few later.

Had the car two weeks so far!

So far I have replaced the boot and bonnet with black carbon badges (just need to pop the wheel caps on)
Tinted all round
M3 style rear spoiler
Led angel lights
Alluminium pressed plates
All interior bulbs led
Debadged rear
Full service inc brake pads

Ideas on Caliper Colour?
May get a bmw performance splitter?
Will get a stainless straight through exhaust and a remap at some point. What gain would I see from these? It's a 220bhp 325i

Love it! Not hanging around with the mods either.
I would be surprised if you don't get hassle from the cops with tints that dark on the fronts. Is the windscreen tinted as well?

lovely looking car. Get some more pics up if you can.

The tints do look dark. You will have to wind the windows down every time you see the fuzz!

I'm thinking of painting my calipers black as its easy to keep them looking clean.

No the windscreen isn't tinted, and it's only a medium tint. They look darker because of the wall behind and the shadow line trim. You can see straight through the car tints.

And as for the Mods, my bank balance is saying no but I just want it all done ASAP.

Looks good. Glossy black grills would finish it off nicely.

+1 for the black grills mate and the performance diffuser completely transforms the rear end

Hi yes, it was a tesco director company car since new. They had a wear and tear warranty with Bmw, so as the car seats were scuffed and the wheels were curbed, bmw put a new interior and wheels on. I called bmw and all checked out. Well spotted.

I got my calipers and hubs painted silver to stay in line but might switch it up in a few weeks. Since you've got a light interior, how about a light lemon colour to match? Call me daft but why not lol

Taig is the colour of silver the car is. (Titanium Silver)
With the seats it may be because of the black armrest?

Tiag comes from the chemical symbols from the periodic table.
Ti = Titanium
Ag = Silver
