matte black grilles and a 3D painted lip are considered tough choices? looks like tons of other cars on this forum, good photos but I see nothing unique about those choices.....

looks good though

My M3 is also Sparkling Graphite, I know from firsthand experience.

hmmmm.... well my M3 is AW and I owned matte black grilles and a 3D lip as well.

I guess it's tougher when you're putting them on Sparking Graphite though, I hear they don't snap in or bolt on as easy.

SG is a nice color though.

wow, why the need to be a dick?

how many AW M3s do you see with black grills and a 3d lip? he pulled this off well for a sparkling graphite considering that there are many more options he could have gone with; that may have looked worse, better, or just as good and he mixed and matched everything perfectly. how many sparkling graphite M3s do you see with black grills with a 3d lip? not many compared to AW M3s at least...

not saying that those two parts are what makes this SG car, but that he did the WHOLE car perfectly (IMO of course and i guess you can say tom's too ):

The forum reminded me of this old thread. I still love this color but I'm not convinced it's Sparkling graphite unless it's totally different indoors since I've only seen it outside.

it is actually one of my favorite colors for this car. if they had later models made with sparkling graphite, i would have had a really hard time deciding between space grey and sparkling graphite.
