Talking .: A White & Gold Affair :.

Part 1 of the winter project is finally completed: refinished the LMs to gold, mirror polished lips, and reverse mounted all four faces. Paired them with the red BBS lug nut conversion to cap it off

Thanks! Can't go wrong with LMs even after all these years.

Yessir! Though I feel the red clashes a bit too much with the FR interior. I ordered grey ones and will be swapping those in.

100% alone on that lol! All gold LMs would look gross... Can't beat a mirror polished step lip for contrast imo.

It depends on the interior you have. Red gauges would be perfect in a black interior, but with extended FR it's a bit too much. I'm swapping mine to grey and will be selling these pre-installed on the backing plates.

Yeah I have FR now, I think it would be too much red even without the extended. The grey looks great in older M cars with red interiors, so i'm hoping it will fit in nice. Post some pics when you swap yours!

Looks sweet! I think OEM chrome kidneys would flow nicely with the polished lips.

I do really like the grey as it's a bit of a homage to the E46/E39 days. I have both grey and white on order, I'm anxious to see what I like better. I have grey in the 328i and I really like how they look!
