I have been smoking again.. now grills done also

Post by PCSAM » Thu 21 Feb, 2013 14:51

I have decided to smoke the glass on the 3.0i as I did with my old 1.9
I do have black or plain silver side vents ,but I seem to like the chrome and smoke and hardtop together :?:
the lights are virtually the same with the flyeyeskit so no noticeable light loss 8-)

pics of car , I decided to give it a quick polish also 8-)

I have an element of 'M-styling' on my car, If that's a good enough reason for the manufacturers to adorn a 320 with the M badge, then its certainly a good enough reason for me..

Black kidney grills and yellow lamix on the fogs would look soooo good 8-)

Yellow flogs is quite a euro look and I've yet to see it done on zed.. I think it would suit the z3 well.

Would try it on mine but I have no fogs.. :(

Yours looks great btw 8-)

I love how clean the rear looks unbadged, the smoked lights emphasise that brilliantly, looking good :)

Your car is looking fantastic

From the look of the flyeyes I think you must have a darker tint than I have on mine - yours looks better

Great look - I'm not sure about the yellow fogs though for me

looks great. First time I've seen it done on headlights. Couple of (probably daft) questions though.

1 is it a spray on job or some kind of tints?

2 is it legal? as in will the police pull you for it? wouldn't mind trying it myself if it's legal
