My Space Grey E90... Thoughts?

ok..
So I'm new to the community here. Never really been part of a forum before so excuse me for my ignorance on how to properly post pictures and what not. (Any tips will be appreciated) This is my first BMW. And certainly won't be my last.
So here is my 2010 335i when I first bought her...

Then I wanted to add a different touch so I plasti dipped the rims and kidney grills black...

Then got bored of the stock wheels. Purchased 19" E46 M3 rims and V12 Hankooks (F265/R275). Rims were powder coated grey. Match my car almost perfectly... This was taken minutes after putting them on. (Also dipped my door handles black, shark fin and mirror caps but have since removed the dip from the mirrors)

Some other shots... (taken with iPhone 4S so sorry for any poor quality. working on getting a legit camera.)

I'm going to school for respiratory therapy soon. Will be done in two years. So not much else will be done to her for awhile. But believe me when I say that I have some serious plans for her... Like a CSL bootlid among other things.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated and taken into consideration. And I'm looking forward to being part of this awesome forum group! BTW I live in Las Vegas. So if anyone knows of any meets that would be awesome!

I have a space grey e90. Love the color.
Just not a fan of the e46 wheels. Good luck in school and your future mods.

Thanks man. I actually just sent you an email of a couple of these shots. From your request on one of your posts. Just took forever for me to do it because I didn't know you replied. haha. Same pictures as the first two.

I'm gonna be honest man, I think it looked best when stock :S Plastidip grill works but personally not feeling the door handles or E46 wheels.

Clean car, the E46 wheels looks pretty good on the E90 but really don't like the dipped door handles but to each their own.

I agree with consensus. Wheels work, but not a huge fan of handles. Good luck with RT.

Thanks for the opinions guys. The plasti dipping was pretty much experimentation. Found out about the stuff and went a little dip crazy. Haha.

I don't think those are 265s up front FYI. And the handles need to go cheapens the car.

A drop would be a good start

If you're going to do M3 wheels...think the new ZCP ones would be a better choice. And yeah...lose the handle dip. The grills turned out nice though.

Wheels look good but the black door handles make the car look like a poverty spec model

Yea I would like to do a drop. But I already rub with those 275s on the rear. And I've already done some fender work. Only time I get rub though is on crazy dips or bumps. We'll see. I just don't want to ruin my tires.
