Great choice of car and colour I've done the same, must say I still miss my 2002 e46 however the e92 certainly has more power.

Congratulations on the new ride

I think the E46 was a bit more visceral with a stronger connection between the driver and the road. That being said the E92 is a vast improvement over the E46. The steering, brakes and top end HP help me forget about the E46. The more modern amenities in the car help as well. In a perfect world I would have kept the E46 for a built track warrior but I don’t have the room and my wife just might kill me in my sleep if I spend any more money on my ‘hobby’.

Thanks, I really like the look as well. It's just matt black vinyl with 3M clear bra on top. Matches the gloss black mirror housing perfect!

Clean. I like what you did with the mirrors haven't seen that done before. It works well because of the sharp crease in the middle. Are they CF or black? can't tell from pics.

LCI taillights would make it perfect. I say that to everyone lol.

Looks and fitment I would give it a 9/10. I would rate the durability a 6/10 as it pits very easily. I also had a small rock hit it and crack the epoxy like coating. I had it repaired and refinished and clear bra’d. After the clear bra it has held up really well.

Thanks, it is matt black vinyl topped with 3M clear bra. It matches the side view mirror housing so well. Agreed on the LCI's...in the plan!

lol yeah, there is also the "if you ever want to see her naked again" factor to consider. The car looks great.

Here is the A$$ end...I have the Eisenmann race on it, I just ordered the Eisenmann black series, it should be here in a few weeks. I think it will complete the black and white theme on the car.
