Change to gloss black asap, but the black looks much better! Get rid of the side reflectors asap.

It looks good! E93's have way too much bling from the factory, I like where you're headed with this.

I have never been a fan of black wheels. So i would say no go on the wheels.

The small stuff like the hood vents / tail pipes etc are okay. But i agree with others who say to do them in gloss black.

Sorry, but not so much

Kind of makes it look a bit drab.
But what do YOU think.

hey guys! took some new pictures today when the sun was actually out. I have to say, I think it looks A LOT better when I use a good camera and the sun isnt setting. Makes the color more red and the wheels more black. Contrast is good.

You went from classy to badass but also added a tinge of cheap IMO. I like the idea but the execution could use some massaging (i.e. no plastidip, get "edition" parts, wrap the trim in gloss black, get some aftermarket wheels).

IMO, Satin Black is definitely the best choice for rims out of the blacks. Its the perfect balance of gloss and matte. Also, before you decide on the finish, I think that a fresh car wash with some tire shine would make it look much better. However, new reflectors, a drop, and spacers would make a HUGE difference. Then it would be perfect.

I think gloss black on the wheels would stand out much nicer, but that's my two cents.
