Blacked out E92's?

I'm thinking about blacking out the E92...(Window Tint, powder coat wheels, tail lights, exhausts, kidney grills)

But I'm not sure why I can't just do it...

Can you guys be so kind to show me your pics of a blacked out E92?(if its yours or not)


Thanks!!

Don't do the tail lights. That's probably the most ghetto mod one can do on a car. It looks ridiculous.

Only other pic I have besides my sig.. Missing three pieces to make it perfect; sige gills (have them just need to put them on), edition exhaust-tail pipes (ordering on Monday) and RIMS (gotta wait til spring )

+3 on NOT tinting your tail lights. Looks tacky.

Please deliver because your picture of your car has made me decide that when I get my M3, it's going to be murdered out (without tinting the tail lights, of course).

Yup you are. That looks ridiculous.

OP-depends on which color you have but IMO white or black do not look good all blacked out. White and black is just a bit played out and black on black offers no contrast. All the other colors, especially SS and space grey or any blue offers a really nice look with the grilles, gills, hood vents and exhaust tips.

I would recommend the OEM black/chrome exhaust tips, front grille and gills. Also a gloss black set of hood vents and gloss black lisence plate holder. Looks great on my car with silverstone.

As far as the wheels, IMO I think the OEM 19's look great with the other black pieces without being overkill. I think the wheels are overkill with the look and turns it from subtle and classy to a bit cheap looking. But just my opinion

My old car..

Before I had the LCI conversions, I had my tail lights smoked via film because I couldn't stand the pre-lci ones. After the LCI, I would never consider smoking them again.

Thanks!

Some older pics of my car with tinted pre-lci rear. IMO the LCI made the biggest difference on my car. Darkened tail light is usually not my cup of tea.

Those are some ghetto wheels.

In all seriousness, that's probably the best looking blacked-out M3 I've seen yet.
