My completed 2012 JB E92 project... Until the next thing I do.

I have been slowly transforming my car over the past 8 months until I accomplished the look I was going for. Love it or leave it, this is what I came up with. I took a lot of inspiration from a lot of other members' cars, so I owe everyone on this forum a ton of credit and a bit of gratitude. Not quite professional pics but I was able to snap a few shots this weekend. From start to finish... heres my project.

HAHA. It truly looks good. Makes me somewhat sad that I just didn't do it myself. Oh well, you can now say you're the first.

What's not to like?!

This will probably be the go-to thread for those interested in how a CRT-style lip looks with OEM splitters.

Well done!

That's a really unique look in the front, I like it. Are those Sevas Forged wheels? The CF details all over with the gunmetal faces really go nicely together.

Yes, they are Sevas. Thank you for the compliments, I tried to put a lot of thought into the color schemes and attempted to accent the lines of the car.

OP, I was about to call you a ******, but then noticed that your thread isn't actually a teaser....it's complete with clear and full photos.

....I'm confused. Why the misleading title? Nice looking car, I'm glad someone finally pulled the trigger on the OEM CRT and splitter combo, and I like how you painted the splitter ends. Reminds me a little bit of a GT-R, very clever.

To be honest, I just wasn't feeling very creative for titles today...

Yes, a big change... I get a constant "you sold you car" from everyone I know but haven't seen in a while...

yeah, I hear ya... I have a love hate relationship with the wheels. I like them because they are somewhat rare in that you can't buy them new anymore and there aren't a ton of people who have them, but there are a lot of other wheels that I think would look better. And the CRT lip is definitely not for everyone, but I wanted to do something different that no one had seen or done yet. There is always something for being first... Even if just to be the first one to be criticized

As I said, I had a lot of inspiration from other member's cars. The Tech was the source and inspiration for that addition. I owe him... And he has amazing car(s). The so cal community will be sorry to lose him if he does indeed make the move out of the state.
