Little makeover (still in progress)

Here are some pics of my car. I am still working on the bumper. It still needs some work, mesh and the lip. I have the parts just not enough time to work on it! Here is a before pic and then the rest are all after pics...let me know what you think...

Steve, that looks a bazillion times better man. Your new wheels look SICK!

Are you all the way down on your CO's and what lip are you planning to put on?

P.S. I like how you kept the 318 badge on the car

Thanks guys! I have a custom made exhaust system from Bavarian/Raven performance. It sounds great!
R_Jay - I can still drop the front by another .75". I raised it alittle because I am going to put on the Rieger lip that I bought off Eurostyle.
318 all the way!!! I kept the badge on for those silly ricers that "think" they can take out a baby bimmer.

Any chance you could post a better picture of your front bumper? That's a stock non-M bumper with the slats removed, right?

I've been thinking about doing the same thing up front and adding a Rieger chin spoiler. Trying to get an idea what the stock bumper looks like without the slats.

Yes, it is a non m3 bumper. I still have some work left on the bumper, once finished (hopefully by next weekend) I will post more pics...

looking good... especially the front end! .. night and day difference.

those pics don't do your rims justice... gotta see them in person to really appreciate them!

nice work! ..

my only question.. why'd you remove the euro-tails to put on stock-tails?

Thanks!!! I had to take the euro tails out because the brake lights melted!!
I took the cheap route when I bought these and tried to save a few dollars...lesson learned! Buy ONLY OEM!!!
Now I'm thinking of buying smoked tails from amimotorsports to go with my "black out" look...don't know what to do. The old lights can be fixed but no point...I'd rather have smoked ones now..

nice as usual steve! The more I see your rims the more I like them. I like the drop. And now that you have painted your skirts it just makes your car look rough. Once you put on your lip, ur car is going to look tight.

keep up the good work.
