Orange m3: Arkym, DPE, Amuse and more.

Hey guys so I decided to add some black in the front and the rear, not sure why all the pictures makes the car looks yellowish but it looks really orange in person.

I try to make my car look different from the other orange m3's. It's boring to have all the car look a like.

10/10 person who has seen this car in person told me to leave the way it is, but most guys on the forum think i should change it.... I guess the car looks better in person?

Honest opinion??? Too much going on. it seems like "darkness" is overpowering the beautiful orange.

Agree with PAK.

Orange with black accents is good, two tone isn't as great IMO but if u love it then who cares what we think!

Don't love it... But definitely don't hate it. It's different and I think the lines on the paint were well thought out to compliment the body lines. I think my least fav is the rear bumper paint. Other than that I think the workmanship looks good...

Alright this is just one mans opinion so here goes...

I absolutely freakin love the front and rear bumpers. Those upward fangs are pretty cool looking. The hood should and trunk should be solid orange IMO. The hood I could almost live with but that big solid brick of black on the back (trunk lid) is simply overbearing on my peepers!

Less is more. The black accents on the front bumper and the rear valence are nice and they looked great on the GTS and GT4 you mentioned. But the CF hood and trunk or over the top.

i would lose the black trunk, black hood, and tinted tail lights, and this car would be beautiful.

the real M3 tiger edition

not a fan of the two tone paint job because it's a little over the top... but it's different and I can appreciate how much time and money you spent on the car.. props for that anyway
