Tinted the Windows and Added OEM CF Mirror Covers

Got the windows tinted and replaced the mirror covers with the OEM carbon fiber ones. I am thinking about replacing the rear spoiler with the CF one as well.

Anyone do it and regret it? If you did swap, do you think you'd be able to easily swap back if you later changed your mind?

I've looked at so many pictures and on some colors it looks good and on others not so much. I am at about 70% leaning towards doing it.

Looking good. The OEM splitters would be a nice fit.

I agree, your car is beggin for the CF performance splitters as well as the performance trunk spoiler. It does look terrific with that dark tint and sometimes less is more.

Very OEMish.. I like it.. Looks clean. Let me know if you are interested in a set of lowering springs. I have a nicely settled set of H&R springs and I live down by Longview...

I am upgrading to full suspension this month.

Looks the biz!

The OEM CF splitters would be a nice touch to add to the aggressive vibe you've got going. I'm not a fan of the front reflectors, they're an eye sore and disrupt the flow.

Looks great! Tint is BAD ASS The OEM spoiler is attached with double sided tape, performance spoiler is as well. Very easy to switch back. My car had splitters and performance spoiler on it from the dealer but they wanted $2,500.00 for both so I kindly asked them to remove and put back OEM spolier LOL. I've got some other plans and had no use for them.

It's not that dark, 30% only. It looks darker at an angle than it does straight on. Interior is all black everything so that helps too.

I am going to keep the suspension as is until I go the full route. Exhaust first, then suspension. I try to spread things out so it keeps it feeling newer longer.

If you go with the CF spoiler, you should use the glue that BMW sells and NOT double sided tape. I've heard several stories of the spoiler going airborn on the freeway because it was installed with double sided tape. The contact point of the spoiler is around the edge so there isn't enough surface area to get a good seal with tape. Obviously the glue is permanent so make sure you want it. Personally I think it would look awesome, I've got it on my SG.
