Those look great! Are the OEM grills that are painted chrome black? Iíve seen some chrome black kidney and side grills on iND, but they are crazy expensive. Iím hoping to find a good alternative as well...

Ahh gotcha. I ended up getting the gloss black from ECS a while back. Installing them before Bimmerfest. Hoping they fit okay.

Cars definitely sitting more aggressive now with the new shoes and gloss black grilles. Although I personally still prefer the OE chrome grilles, this looks great as well bud.

Much appreciated. The chrome grills do look great, it keeps things from being washed out up front. Helps break things apart, easier to distinguish the details of the front end.

With that said, smoked corners are in order lol

Default Paulo M's JetBlack E46 M3

Depo Smoked corner lights and smoked led side markers:


I’ve had crystal corners and non led smoked side markers before. These are darker without being too dark. The led sides still put out amber light that matches the corners.

Got accepted to compete in Springest 2019 in VA Beach. If any of you are coming, come say whatís up. I honestly donít even care about the competition aspect, just wanted my car indoors for cool pics since Iíve never had any indoor/auditorium pics before.

Car looks clean bro, I have the same wheels in that exact spec, great on the e46 imo.

I didn't mind the yellow calipers but I must say the cinnamon is pretty cool!

Yeaaaa man, these wheels are awesome! They look so aggressive with nice meaty tires.

The specs we got is spot on! I canít see how people run 9.5 +22 up front!? Iím barely clearing with a +35.
