OK, what should I do.

I'm gonna get my gray stuff painted & get my lip put on. This is probably as far as I will go with the bodywork... (pk well maybe a window spoiler )

OK, now... I always wanted to put the subtle M stripes below the headlight... That's gotta stay. Now I debated wheter to do the same for the rear? The contours of the tail light looks slanted from the back, so I feel it will not go well with the lines?

I also thought of putting that same decal on the lip. Would it look good? Or should I put a maxbimmer sticker there AKA Mikester? (do you know if it will stay on well during the winter?)

Feedback/photoshopping appreciated..

I got a replica from GaugeCo...It was $200. I went with it because I thought I will put a decal of some kind on it. It looks like it will have no problem fitting. Or you can go with AMI Motorsports and get one for $300 It is ABS plastic.

1)Your car is GREEN! For crying out loud, the M colours would like shyt on it.--> Paint it white/black/red/blue/silver or something like that
2) You are driving a 318i(not even an S), the M colours absolutely do not belong on it.
3)I like your rims, best thing about your car by far.
4)Lip will look good, but you have to do something about the sides(skirts?)
5) Do as you please...

and there was not M5 badge....there was an M badge.

My car has M badge that came with it, factory
I also got K/N (isnt that considered a Mod? )

difference is my car is closer to an M3 than his car, in every aspect.... PLUS, i gave him my honest opinion..Isnt that waht he asked for?

Interior of the M3 and the 325is is 90% the same(recaro's, steerign wheel, etc), also, according to rob, the ~front suspension of the 325iS and the M3 is ~identical. yes, exterior is quite different due to the huge wing, , fenders, and trunk lid. Also dont forget the rims stock for stock

the fenders make a HUGE difference..in performance and looks..as well as the wing, the trunk is smalller, the whole rear glass is at a different angle, the brakes too.
