Would it look strange...

Would it look strange if my Alpine white car was a two tone? Thinking black hood, roof and possible trunk. Allready have black headlight trims & grilles to install, tinting is getting done in a few weeks, I could easily paint the chrome window trim black too.

Maybe hyper black CSL reps too?

Opinions, Yay or Nay?

nay! Personally white on a BMW is one of my fav colors. You should do whatever you think will look best and not care about what other ppl think. After all it is your car...

Theres lot of other options you could go with if you wanted to contrast a white car. Why not put in your black headlights, black grills, maybe you could get textured door mouldings and paint your crome window trim black or something just an idea.
But i would definitly agree with the consensus on not painting


On the bright side you have a hot car regardless.
