The only thing i would suggest to you, and i WAS guilty of the same thing on my last car.

Take your lip off, take your sides off, pay that little bit extra and get them painted at a shop. It'll probably run you like 300, but it'll look that much better. Its pretty obvious that the lip and sides are a rattle can job, and it takes away from the cars beauty!

Still, shes come a long way, and looks hot!





EDIT: Whatever you do, NEVER, i repeat NEVER debadge your car. Always let people THINK its just a puuny 318, and then you show them who runs things!
Hehe, I like the way you think! (about the last part!)

By the way, the sides were painted professionally, It's just the front bumper that didn't get enough clearcoat (yes it is a rattle can job), so it's chipping. I've still yet to get the front resprayed, alongside with a ACS diffuser or maybe mirrors IF something pops up. Which is why I'm holding out on the painting. In either case, I should get it done next month.

Thanks!

I like the ride height as is, it's driveable.
I can finally appreciate your car thanks to the ACS wheels.
Don't debadge.
No pinstriping.

The only things I would personally change are:
Dual tip exhaust would flow with the rear bumper a lot better
ACS mirrors to finish off the look

Exactly my thoughts. Single tip exhaust looks so anemic.

Thanks, guys. As for the dual tip exhaust, I know everyone is asking for it. And it might look better. But this exhaust cost me $1000, I can't bring myself to hacking it up...
