coming back a day or two later... i do think the black on the bumpers is kind of unique and cool. i still dont know if i can feel the two tone... im sure in person it looks different and better as i have seen a few m6's with two tone paint in pictures and i think they look hideous yet in person they don't look at all the same and look much more appealing.

perfect example is this (hideous) orange and black m6... pics made me want to puke. then i was driving by the dealer and in person it actually looked pretty different and although i didnt love it i didnt find myself hating it like in pics:



i bet if we all saw yours in person we'd have a whole different opinion. its like a matte pearl white paint job or wrap... pics dont even have a chance at showing how cool it is.

I think it looks a lot better in person. People who has seen it in person and the pictures gives totally different opinion. Some times picture doesn't do the justice and again every one has their own opinion

It looks pretty good and I know what you are looking for! After I saw the picture of GT4 and GTS I got the same idea as you (front & rear bumper). The only thing I won't do is the trunk and hood. That is just my opinion though... like all other people said, just do what you want bro, coz it's your ride!!

Respect!! haha

It would definitely make me look and stare, but I wouldn't want to own it. Doesn't look bad per se, but takes away from the classiness of the car IMO.

This, nailed it.

I think you have something interesting going on here...But if you gave that to me, I would lose the tinted tail lights, black trunk, black/orange roundels, orange center caps, and black mirror caps. Then add a BMW CF Spoiler to the trunk.

I really like the idea in the front.... a lot.

I had CF spoiler but not aggressive enough. I am going for the black/orange theme. I want top section of the car shows in carbon fiber.

Definitely an attention grabber, maybe because it looks a bit too much. Get the cleaner look by painting your hood and trunk. People know they're cf aftermarket pieces anyway, might as well get the clean look and the tinted lights got to go unless you have a black car

That's the worst thing I've ever seen. Get rid of the wrap, and just go for the orange. Beauty in simplicity.
