Dear god someone painted stamped LTW's red.. I hope they were polished ones because that's a slightly easier pill to swallow.

Aside from that it's a good start, next steps would be to lose the angel eyes and bra, paint the hood red again, put chrome kidneys in and click edit undo on those wheels.

Exactly, it would be perfect! BMW did it right from the start, especially in europe. Aside from suspension and engine mods theres not too much else you can do with these cars that will improve on looks/performance without looking rice.

If you want it to be unique find some OEM rarities like motorized headlight adjusters, under hood light, rear fogs, CD43 etc. That IS the cool stuff!

Looked pretty clean at the show, it looked too clean to have a rusted hood.
Don't personally like the wheel color, but that's just my opinion.

It would be super clean if it was more stock'ish. (Red Hood, Stock Wheels, no bra, no angle eyes, no eyebrows)

BTW, I took that pic.

trying to hard to be a vw 5 yrs ago

I wouldnt run the wheels in the summer(personally) but if you use the car in the winter. Im all for it then.

dont like the rusted hood.
dont mind the roof rack.
dont like the leather bra on the hood.

bumper fitment could be a bit better...but overall the looks VERY clean(im referring to paint and overall condition. )

No loss on those rims. Those 'stamped LTWs' are replicas anyways, so paint them rainbow stripes for all I care!

... and while were at it, why donít we raise it back up to stock height, and replace that steering wheel and any other aftermarket items with stock BMW parts, because BMW cars are perfection from the factory, and any additional cosmetic modification can only make it look worse...

Sometimes I just canít help but laugh. I have never seen such a bias group of enthusiasts like the ones on this site. The responses to a thread like this are always so predictable.

I'll agree with the rusted hood, only because its so out of place on a car in that shape. But aside from that, it all fits together nicely.

Considering it is a non-m, it would still have all the M mods on it.
You don't mod cars with stupid shit just for the sake of modding. If you listen to what you are saying then he should go around sticking some plastic hood scopes, fender grills and chrome all over the car.

No one said anything about a steering wheel...

There are a lot of mods that can be done while keeping it classy, that is all everyone is trying to get at.
