Paint Job idea for a GT2 look. What do you think?

Forgive me, I have very poor photoshop skills but what do you guys think of this potential paint job on a space grey m3. I will have a similar lip painted in gloss black.

Same lip? I don't like it but with the right mods it might flow well. I suppose you could wrap it and see if you like it first.

IMO looks stupid as the black space is now lost and just looks missing

Post a good picture of your car and I'm sure it can be photoshopped. I think it "could" look good but the car should be pretty modified all around to sport this look.

I was referring to BMW GT2, but anyway i was a Pcar guy before ///M and a lot of the guys put GT3 kits on there CS's (was one of them)...don't think pcar guys get as uptight. Except for this one dude who had a 996 turbo and put a 997 GT2 kit, wrapped his whole car in CF wrap, and put GT2RS emblems crooked all over the car...but they flamed him more for the shitty work.

My car is in the body shop getting a full front bumper respray and my Revinora lip installed. I'll post an updated photo in a couple days.
