New look : AW l Vorsteiner l Dinan l H&R etc

Sold my HRE C20s, and powdercoated my OEM 19s gunmetal, and along with spacers (15mm front, 12mm rear) I think I'm pretty happy with the way it comes out, clean and OEM-ish. Anyways, took some quick pictures earlier, enjoy

(p.s don't mind the crack on the front lip, ran over some shredded tire on the freeway, I plan to have it fixed soon)

Nice OEM look but damn the powdercoated wheels look so close to OEM, should've just left them lol.

Looks good... Can never go wrong with the oem look... Also i feel that the wheels should have been spaced that way from factory

Perfect. Amazes me how the E90 doesnt need much to look aggressive.

Amazing how great it looks even with stock wheels Sorry to go slightly off topic, but out of curiosity, how do you plan on getting your lip fixed? I have a slight scratch on my own lip, but didn't really think CF can be fixed.

I plan to wrap it with 3M DiNoc Carbon Fiber wrap, since it's specifically for exterior and waterproof, so we'll see how the end results come out. I'll post pictures soon.

Looks nice, question, are those H&R sport or race? Also, do you scrape undernet when going over speedbumps etc with those springs?

Looking good though!

Very nice! I also have my wheels powdercoated a similar color. While most people say it looks too close to stock...I think it looks fantastic. Getting rid of that brushed aluminum with clear coat face on the wheel was a must for me! Congrats!
