Estoril Blue F30 328 with M performance mods

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi guys I'm a bit of a lurker on the forum. Have decided to post a few pics of the wife's car
She didn't like all the mods and wouldn't let me finish it off with the front aero splitter
We had the car for 1 month & she already took out the drivers door

Pic of it with stock wheels

Got the side sills painted in gloss black, and M performance vinyl decals in place. Didn't like the M kicker boards as they look out of place I think.

Looks great, those gunmetal VB3s go really well with EB. Work harder on the front splitter

I would think the"Hypersilver VB3 rims" would look a lot better on Mineral Gray. It would provide great contrast unless you are looking for the "stealth" look

Looks great! I agree with everyone else, if you can talk her into the front splitter you're done!
What size/offset VMR wheels did you end up with.

Looks great I really dig the wheels and your garage setup too!

I would remove the M performance sticker though, it kind of looks out of place.
