Nice job on the painting. But I personally do not like how it looks on the car.

You did a really good job. Those aren't for me, but I like them. Maybe would look better on a color other than Jerez.

Mmmm...how can i say this ?
To be honest..it was good work...and that i can see in the pics..you are a model builder and painter !
But...?
For me personal...when i look with a focus to the hood...i see almost 2 eyes with make-up,and creates a kind of cartoon figure !
Also the ///M stripe colors are light blue,dark blue and red so the left vent is correct but the right vent is in reverse order.
And i know a comment can be hard...so i'm so sory man but at least i'm honest like i said !
But the most importend thing in this case is....that you like it ,and exactly that counts here

Very original, I like it. It's not over the top. Nice touch, well done.

I wouldn't rock it but it looks good & you're skilled at what you do.
I know that sounds like an oxymoron but for the record, there are a lot of nice things i wouldn't rock.

Honest suggestions/opinions:
1) Like previously mentioned, driver's side color order is incorrect. (correct should be Blue, Violet, Red)
2) I would try experimenting on different colors. Although they do look good on black, i think they would look very at home on Alpine White.
3) Because of its subtle design, they might go well with an M3 that has been modded with M performance parts.
4) It goes well with the strips on your bumper.


Cultural differences:
I don't know if other people think this way, but i really think M-stripes on BMWs are more at home on cars in Europe and the EU region, including where you're from, Turkey, versus somewhere like the US, where it would be labeled as "euro-rice", "fanboy" or "douchey".
This is hard to explain, but through my travels, I've been to countries where some of the cars would be considered "rice" or ugly in the US but look just right at its current location. Japan and Hong Kong have a lot of good examples such as minivans lowered with exhaust and mirrors all over the place & altezza lights. Such add-ons would be shunned here in the States, but they are appropriate and look great (and actually functional) elsewhere.
I'm not sure if others will grasp my logic here, but I do think what the OP did wouldn't work here in the US, but would look good in Europe.

Needless to say, good job
