better pics of my m3 and question about roundels

Okay, so I know these pics still aren't that great, but at least they're a little better. I am going to do something with the roundels, but I'm not sure exactly what to do. I have jet black overlays, and might apply those where the roundel is blue. On the other hand, I was also thinking about getting lime green overlays and applying those where the blue is. What do you guys think? Any suggestions? Should I stick with the black and white theme, do something crazy and unique, or keep it how it is?

please don't do lime green, unless you really want to put lime green accents on other parts of the car...

IMO go with carbon fiber overlays, black, or a silver.

I say do it and if you don't like it, you learned that it doesn't look good, and try something else.

I have a alpine white m3 with a lot of matte black parts. I went with the black overlays and I'm very happy with it. I don't know about the lime green though.

Go with Lime Green and do your mirror covers too! Calipers and maybe even time attack! I think it would be sick and unique. There are so many white e92 M3's with black wheels and accents. Too many.

Please tell me something.

Does your neighbourhood have a no camera policy? Would you have to drive very far to get into another neighbourhood which is less....restrictive, so allowing you to take decent pictures?

How come you are never able to take a picture of your car anywhere but in this garage?

If I post pictures of my car, I want to make sure they look good, not rubbish.

Just curious.....

I tried to take pics outside a couple times, but there was a huge glare from the sun both days. Plus, all I had on me was my iphone.

Hmmm. Yes. Well...Try a different time of day. When the sun is lower perhaps. Or put the car in a shady spot.

As excuses go, that gets 1/10.....maybe less.
