Need Your Input!!!

Well my e36 is going in for a paintjob this comming week... Right now the car is M3 yellow and it's dressed up like an M3.. I have a 95 325 is slammed to the ground on m3 wheels + apparell. This is my problem. The cars getting painted black and i'm wondering if I should paint the mouldings with the car.. This is a real hard decision for me so I don't know what to do.. So i've come here and am asking your opinion... Repaint the mouldings flat black or paint them with the car with gloss.. Plz lemme know! thnx

P.s i'm getting pictures of my Bimmer being Yellow so you may see it and after pictures when the car is black...

p.p.s i'll also be throwing pictures up of my Mr2 (which was stolen). It was a work of art for me so I think you guy's will like it. thnx boys

I tend to agree. Don't do it. Leave it yellow. Black is a nice colour however impossible to keep clean.

For god sakes, please don't leave the engine bay a different colour than the exterior when it gets resprayed. Nothing could look more ghetto.

If you go black, like GEE$ said, make sure they do the engine bay. And moldings: flat black.
