My 335is convertible

I got my car about a month ago and I just finished installing a couple of things.
This is the car the day I got it! Best day ever


This is the car a week later with a fresh tint 35% all side windows and 20% rear view window! Perfect tint in my opinion. It lightened up after a week or so but this is it a couple of hours after they put it on.

This was the tint a week later


Now this is it today and I'm so happy with how everything turned out. I bought a carbon fiber rear lip for like $250 dollars on **********s. I got color matching side reflectors.... This was a small mod but it really does make a huge difference. And lastly I made the emblems black, only covering the blue parts.

I saw that you did that to your car, and i think it looks a lot better.... how exactly did you do it? i got a quote from the dealer for $800, and that seems a little steep, if you ask me

Way steep! I spent about 50 bucks and half a day doing it myself.

I got a 5" thick roll from BMW shadow line.com

It's not perfect.. But has held up well over the past year. Where are you located? There could be a shop nearby that would do a professional job.

It wasnt easy that's for sure. But it was my first time with vinyl and it went pretty well.

I believe EAS is out there. Look them up they do the wrap on a ton of M3 verts.

thats ridiculous... some days I like the silver trim, but when i see it next to a m sport coupe with the black trim, the black trim looks so much better.
