Damn - that looks sick. I have a top quality tint shop that I've used for my last three cars. I'm already planning to literally pick it up and drive there.

Nice car man - I'm jealous! My 335i got left in BimmerHeaven, now I have to wait almost two more weeks for it to get on a ship.

That looks very nice with the blackened tail lights! I wonder if removing the badge (335i) wouldn't make it even nicer

Sunshine...tell me about it, it's so cloudy overhere, I'm getting depressed almost. The blackend taillights look okay(have to get used to them a bit) , and yes it would be nice then to debadge it maybe.

Cheers

I'm gonna paint the 335i badge black and if it doesn't look right I will just remove it entirely.

Call me thick, but how do "smoke" the rear lights?
do you do it yourself or have it done??
how much does it cost for such a process?

I bought a roll of dark smoke tail light tint from Rviynl.com and applied them myself. Only about 20 bucks. They have pre-cut films but not for the F30 yet so I cut them myself. They are a PAIN to install on any kinda curved surfaces.

Thanks for the fast response! well it look like you did a might good job!!
because it looks very professionally done! unless that is your job already
you have to have a heat gun and spray fluid on it, just like tinting a window process right ...
it doesn't look like you had to remove the lights cover to do it on a table or anything like that...
I dont think i can do that myself, too afraid to mess it up and turn out to be a 1/5 @$$ job! LOL

Thanks. 20% is too dark in my state, we can do only up to 35%. But it looks very nice on your car.

I think it would look even better if you black out your front grill like on Longtran's car. Is that in your plans?

Black Sapphire looks classy and great......when clean.

Love the tail lights, leave the 335i...I don't see why people want to remove stuff

Where'd you get the lights done?

Looks awesome! Love the tinted taillights and especially looks great against the black exterior color.

That window tint job wouldn't last 2 days in Ohio...local coppers are writing tickets like crazy
