First Mod!

Cosmetic only, but still cool!

I wasn't feeling the gray paint or the huge reflectors on the rear difuser so I had it wrapped in gloss black. I also had the roof done in gloss black to break up the large expanse of blue.

Before:


After:




I also got a clear bra installed, but it is SO clear you can't see it in person, let alone in a picture...

Thanks for posting these, I've been toying with the idea of a gloss black roof wrap but wasn't sure if it would look so good on EBII......you've just convinced me! Cheers

Wow. Wrapping usually looks sooo tacky. This looks really, really good Is is the spray-on stuff that you can get off easily? I might even consider doing this to mine but it's a lease so I'd have to be able to take it off easily at the end of the contract

Looks good, on a 328 with its single exhaust, I think those reflectors make the exhaust look out of place, they frame the duals on the 335 nicely, I think, but don't look good with the 328 so well done.

I also thought about doing the black diffuser if I get a MG m sport, but think I prefer the gray with EBII

Mine is a lease too. My first question was "how easily does it come off?" Answer: Easily, it peals right off.

I bought H&R Springs on eBay, standard drop not super sport. I had the car lowered at LTBMW.

Here is their price list: http://ltbmw.com/services/

Thank you much! It actually looks just like your sig photo! Much to the dismay of my family, I just spent 3 hours waxing and detailing it (again).

justinnum1, LTBMW is an independent shop. I haven't pushed the car yet with the new springs but the ride home on the freeway felt pretty close to stock....just a hair stiffer. I'll report back when I get a chance to really drive it through some corners. It sure looks sweet, but now I really want new wheels....

Anyway, I'm happy and thanks for the compliments!
