Talking 503 Motoring: MFEST Teaser shots!

Hey guys, we're just about to leave for MFEST tomorrow, so here are some teaser shots of my dad's M3. It's not quite done yet (more graphics, cleaned up a bit, wheel caps, badges), but close.

Mods:
-20" Vossen VVS 094s (Jerez black lips and matte black centers).
-Vredestein Sessantas (255/30-285/25 and designed by Giugiaro!) Oh and don't worry about the profile on the tires, this car is over a year old and only had 3k miles on it .
-H&R Springs.
-35% Suntek tint all around.
-Painted tailights.
-Pre-painted Euro Bumper (from Rennspec ).
-Matte black side gills w/ monochrome badges and painted lenses.
-Matte black grills.
-503 Motoring vinyls (matte black w/ retroreflective writing).
-Wet-sanded and detailed.
-3M protection.

Next:
-On our way to Las Vegas, we are picking up a custom Oregon plate that will say "MFEST".


Pics (keep in mind that the photos where the writing looks white are with the flash on, its a trick of the retroreflective material):













We're still up in the air about the black/white BMW badges and are contemplating going back to stock, what do you guys think?

Black and white seems to be the majority so far vs. stock. We have also considered the CF too.

Car looks good. I would definitely say stock on the BMW badges. That's the only thing I'm not in favor of changing on these cars. I don't like messing with their logo.
