You'd do fine with your orange and blue down here in Gator country!

Should have painted them red to match the volk sticker! But still doesn't look half bad!

I would start by removing the decals. You could also get some orange decals made to match the brakes.

Overall I think you have a good looking car. I am not opposed to the orange Brembo calipers, however a more cohesive and flowing theme would benefit the car. As others have mentioned, start off by removing the red Volk decals off the wheels. If the decals are a must, I would probably not go with orange ones, as it will be an odd clash with the calipers and provide too much orange into the wheel region of the car. The E92 is already a beautiful car, the wheels should not steal the show, it should compliment the car. Try the decals in either the color of the car, or jet black to match the shadow-line trim.

the orange would definitly look better on another color car but all isnt lost. remove the red volk stickers and window stickers. if you still dont like the combo then guess its a new color caliper for you.

I dig the orange a lot, just need the Volk sticks to match and I think it will flow nicely

First thing I thought when I saw that color combo.
The Gators would love it.


Just take the stickers off or get orange ones.

I think they look horrible. I will buy them from you for cheap. They would look great on my AW car.

Just kidding. I think once the red stickers are gone it will look awesome. I like blue and orange.

There is a clash with the red and orange. I'm with the other guys, remove the red stickers. The joys of modding...
