///M-Performance: Black Sapphire

Just finished building TreDirtyFive's 335 M-Sport with M-Performance parts. The result is very technical looking, and the mix of matte black and gloss Black Sapphire is very stealth like and understated-which is a great thing.

Front M-Performance Splitter:



Rear M-Performance Diffuser with matte black reflectors:



M-Performance side skirt blades:

Both cars have the M Performance lower side blades but not the black decal trim which is just a sticker.

Looks barely visible on the silver one... Looks like it sticks out much less ? Probably just the photo being overexposed then...

I usually dont like black cars, but damn this one looks so good!!

Great work guys on the black car, on both! but especially the 335i.

Questions:

what's the offset on both car?
why not tint the silver 328i ?
and
what the deal with the rear left door of the 328i ? (why does it have a different shade of silver?? did you guys had to paint it over?
The 328i would probably stand out more if you had matte silver rims.
and why not matte the 335i lettering on the back

•Both cars have 19X9.5 rear with 35 offset, 19X8.5 front with 35 offset. The 335i however has a 5mm front spacer in front in order to clear the brakes

•No tint on the silver car because of personal preference

•The rear door of the 328i has not been hit or painted, and according to a VIN report was not painted at the port yet in certain sunlight it appears to be a different shade- something I am going to have to deal with through warranty

•No silver wheels on the 328i due to personal preference

•No black 335i emblems due to personal preference

Matte Rims and Matte grille make the car look sexy. I wish I had done the same with mine.

actually, my wheels are dirtier than a midnight whore so they are caked in brake dust and grime at the moment of these pics. They are actually gunmetal and shiny. ha.

The Black 335 with matte effects looks spectacular!! Really gives the front end a much better look.

Is the matte finish of the front grill stock ? Or has it been painted matte black ? On other people's car the ///m performance front grill looks more glossy ? Or does it look more matte just because it's close to bsm paint ?
