very nice car, love the wheels and the drop looks really good!

I installed blacked out sides and kidneys and love the look...if you don't want to black it out or keep the chrome talk to Nate about painting them or working on something to make them look brushed....Nate has access to an excellent painter so would talk to him about options!

Ask, and ye shall receive.....

Here's one. It's huge, though, sorry. If you want more, I'd be happy to put 'em up!

Thanks for all the compliments, everyone. Much, much appreciated. I'll get some pics up with the black kidneys, and solicit your opinions then.


Cheers!

looks great and cool Ind. color...

I'd vote to keep your the oem chrom grills/gills since its looks better with the brushed wheels and gives the car a "cleaner" look...IMO....the drop looks good too...a light tint, like 50-60% would go well with that "clean" non-murdered out look

how are you liking those Invo's? would a 255/35 rub?

I like them a lot so far, but can't really formulate a real opinion as of yet. Still in break-in, and as such, driving relatively sedately. They are quiet, definitely, and no rubbing, front or back (and for a recent car show, I had the suspension dropped as low as it would go, with no rubbing, still! ) I'm very interested about how they will do with aggressive driving, but really, these are for street/show... I have OEM 18s (and OEM 19s ) for the track..... (don't ask, haha.....)


Thanks again, guys. It's great to get the feedback.

nice dude
would love to see more pics of the color
id go with matte black side and front grilles, if you want to leave it classy. Leave the OEM chrome centers of the grille, and only use the outside frame of the matte black. Better yet, have the OEMs painted (just the outside frame of the kidney grille) and do the same with the sides. thats what I did before my CF ones.

this is how mine looked before i got the CF side gills.




btw, where in Canada are you?

In any case great looking car.

Thanks! - Like I said in my original post, Azurite is a tough colour to photograph (at least for me, it is). If you place Jerez and Azurite side-by-side, it is plain they are quite different. Azurite has a deeper blue, a richer overall colour, and much more pronouced metallic flake. The difference for the most part for most would be largely academic, but for me, I know the difference, and that's all I need

Thanks! I'll try and get some better pics of the colour soon.

I'm still vascillating between matte/chrome. I have the matte stuff sitting in my garage - need to get one side installed, take pics, and see what you guys think.

I am in Saskatchewan - believe me - driving an M3, you definitely don't see yourself coming the other way! Kinda nice in a way, but I envy you guys out east - it would be nice to hook up with some of your get togethers......


Thanks everyone, for all the kind compliments.

And once again, thanks, Nate/IND.

Next step.... some performance upgrades.... one must do, what one must do....
