My new 428i GC!

So I've been following this forum for a while learning from everyone, looking at pics and getting details of what I want and I finally bought!

Go test drive both cars and see if the review matches your expectation.

Thanks! I powder coated the wheels black, tinted the windows and changed to black lettering right after I bought it. Not to loud but tried to clean it simple and clean...just a little different.

Nice! I dig on the black badge. What tint % is that? Looks dark! 20%?

You guessed it correctly, didn't realize how dark it would be. I'm sure I'll be pulled over someday and will have to get it lighter. I drove past a cop just yesterday and rolled down my windows so he wouldn't see.

I'm in the same boat....I didn't realize how dark it would be until it was finished. Ahh well, it looks good.

Curious why you didnt get the GC? Was it due to price?

I considered putting overlays or changing the emblems to black/white but not sure of the quality. Has anyone had overlay stickers look new after a long period of time?
