Lightbulb Small things make HUGE DIFFERENCE!

Hi guys!

I've finally managed to get some of the small cosmetic mods on. I must say that I'm very impressed.

**Oh yeah, and the full exhaust is on the way.

Very nice.

I like every detail mod you made except for the smoked bumper reflectors...

I know many guys don't like them, but I strongly feel they look much more natural compared to painted, and plus they compliment my matte black accessories very much.

That's just my opinion of course.

Lookin good. Not feeling the smokes but I'm definitely feeling the exhaust that's going to go on it. Keep us updated on that with vid and sound clips. OEM 18" looks good w/ IB. Just throw some spacers and call it a day.

No regrets on going smoked. Although I admit that it did take some getting used to in the beginning when I was doing the research.....But I'm very happy with them now.

I was close to getting spacers, but I would truly feel regret for messing with a brilliant stock suspension.

I'm very happy you liked my plates! It's my first time doing the custom license thingy, and I'm very excited about it!

Nice, looks very good with the 18"s in there too. Just need to get some H&R springs and some spacers to show off those wheels now

+1 and LOL, I basically got the same reactions for putting white reflectors on my IB E92 M3 and my reasoning is the same as yours. I'm not saying everyone should change, but to me the painted ones are like putting a bandaid on your arm, it tries to blend in but it just sticks out more.

It's actually pretty interesting that we are kind of doing the oppisite of each other with both IB. Your doing matte black on everything to match the 18" wheels, and I plan on keeping all the chrome (+white/clear reflectors) to match/compliment the 19" wheels. Though I may black out the vertical lines in the grill so the chrome trim stands out more.

Looks good man

Here's where I posted pics of mine with the white/clear reflectors a long while back.
