I wld go for custom spray anytime, I had a few close up checks at some workshops with some vinyl-matt rides and I really dig my current color, more so when its under diff light conditions. U dun get that with vinyl. The only vinyl I'd nvr regret was the black cf sticker I did on my previous Vw EOS tho. Its by far unique looking and very easy to maintain

Did a wheel swap and try something new, however the yellow calipers were a mismatch so car's in the spray shop for a black caliper (with blue Brembo wording). Will update when I get my ride back.

Did a custom DRL for the foggie replacement too (that was done like 6mths back)





Changed to quad exhaust setup

I think your last wheels looked better on the car IMHO; the new blue is too bright with respect to the flatter frozen blue. Just my personal opinion, but it still looks great as it stands!

I think it's hideous. Sorry... those wheels look ghetto. I'm sure they're expensive, and obviously it's a nice car with a LOT of money into it... just not my thing. Glad you like it.

Agreed 1000%. I thought this was a photoshopped joke someone was playing on us

Yeah not feeling it man. This look works well on porche and m3 not so much on the f30. The rims should be darker than the car imo, something like dark bronze/gunmetal would look nice though.

its custom from scratch, choose the rectangular LEDs and encase them, link up the wires and solder on. Its customised into the M Sport fog lamp duct and took a week for the custom job.

Will post more pics of it when I get my car back

In all honesty, I think the OP has done an outstanding job. There's just too many haters out there.

If u don't like the wheels then please don't comment. The OP has spent $$$ on customizing the car that would make him feel good and we should all appreciate that.

Whether its an M3 or an F30, it's still a BMW and an awesome car.

Lets start looking out of the box and appreciate things for what they are; even if we don't really like or agree with it.

Tortoise808 your car is simply awesome! I absolutely love it! Unfortunately I don't have the $$$ to make it look like yours and therefore keep visiting this thread to see the pics and DROOL! Love the colour of the car and keep up the great work buddy!

By the way, I'm not gonna reply anyone that comments on my above post. This thread is for the OP and I'll leave it as it is.

Is it really ET47 in the rear?
Looks more like a ET37 but I have a fever so I might see things that are not real.
