All white = Ugly.
You need contrast.
Trim, mirrors, door handles, etc.

So, if i follow your logic, this car looks ugly


I really don't have the pretention of saying that my car is as beautiful as the new M3 but it's got no contrast at all exept the roof !

just saying.

^^^Yes, agree 100%...the all white with tints is great! Just put some nice rims and a drop, and the car will be finished!

I think it looks good. Contrast is important, but he did a good job with it, and the tinted windows really help. Get those wheels and you're done!

Good for you on the self paint... probably saved a lot of money and got a good result!
