Project: NGHTHWK: Revamped.



Full write-up and professional pictures coming January 14th...ish!


A HUGE THANKS TO ALL OF MY SPONSORS!!! Especially Active Autowerke and Dirty Devil Customs!
(Sorry for the small logo on the sponsor panel Active, you have the biggest two logos on the car, and both windshields.)

Also a thanks to Revinora for that awesome front lip!

The car will look great on the "SPEED" channel for "The Forum Wars" against the C63AMG.

Okay, so here is what is happening. I have already had a photoshoot with this car done, but after a LOT of feedback, I have decided to change the car a little bit. 95% of people like the matte silver and the rims. I had some modifications that I wanted done to the car prior to "The Forum Wars", and I will have the money soon, so I will do it all together. I have decided to get matte black kidney grills. Color the reflectors, headlight sprayers, mirrors, sharkfin, spoiler, and rear fender matte silver with the rest of the car. Only leaving the hoodvents and possibly the side grills red. I will be adding a GT2 style wing, and adding a more aggressive stance to the car. And once I get the money, a rear diffuser. And all of the decals will be pulled off the car.

I really liked the red at first, but it seemed to get old, pretty damn fast. (And yes, it does look better in person, but still.)


Here are the photos from the photoshoot, plus a little video for fun.

OLD LOOK.




UPDATE!! March 18th, 2011. The car has been fully matte silver/clean looking for about two weeks now. Finally decided to post some pictures. Looks WAY better, I'm happy with it, it just feels clean and mean. <-- cheesy. What do you guys think?
NEW LOOK

Love how you're trying to be unique however I feel it might have been over done with all of the red accents and stickers... none the less, great job for the creative mind!

I like the idea of red accents. Execution isn't bad over all, I am not a big fan of the red roundels though. Also, surprised by the reflectors still being there - that's usually the first cosmetic mod. Overall a good effort that could probably be even better with more refinement.

I commented on your last thread and said that your M3 tried to look too much like a Gt3RS, I take that back...

Note to self: Do not let my 8 year old mod my car.

i agree, make the kidney grill gloss black, the reflectors black, hood vents black, roundels black, and get rid of some of the stickers.

I think red accents on the mirrors and gills would be a nice touch and still keep the red/gray theme without over doing it.

I think it would look much better that way, but props for being different

Are you joking? The C63 has an edge up already stock for stock. If the M3 just had a steel roof maybe, but the extra moonroof glass adds weight!

If you don't think this is a big deal why does the M3 have a carbon fiber roof in the first place!?!?!?!
