Nice!
I like how Space grey and sparkling graphite are the closest colours out of M3s and they are both SG. On purpose.....?

Wow tint looks really good on this car. I was debating it, for mine.
If you didn't get the shadow lines, it would have changed everything.

Thanks!
For sure still have the following mods coming:

1) Dinan Pulley
2) Dinan or Remus Race Exhaust
3) Eibach Springs
4) Giac Tune

Debating:

1) Black Out grill/gills
2) Matte Black VMR 710s

Thanks for the compliment, your SG sedan looks very nice/clean btw!
Living in South Texas not really any choice but to get a tint heheh!


P.S. - My car IS Sparkling Graphite!

Yep i love the look of the EAS e92 with the matte black vmr710s and black out grill/gills!

Only reason im debating doing the same visual mods is it's "been done" but i still might do it anyway just cuz i like it so much!

I wouldn't worry about that, an e92 m3 is still a rare sight in most parts of the country, let alone a tastefully modded one.
