    Looks awesome! I would put in black grilles to match the aggressive exterior colour.

    Thanks for the love. I'm still deciding which direction to go with grilles, wheels, etc., but rest assured I'm far from finished.

    I feel like you guys are trying to tell me something... Click here to enlarge

    I swear, the grilles are in my cart, I'm just sorting out which suspension bits are coming with them. The LCI Blackline tails are already on, if that cuts me any slack.

    A local painter showed me his own "Frozen" Estoril E36 M3, and I was sold. There are five "levels" of gloss (or lack thereof) achievable, based on how much matting agent is mixed into the clearcoat. His M3 had a 3, my car is a 5 (with 5 being the shiniest). If I get bored of it, I can have it polished all the way back to a full gloss finish. I'm happy to pass along my painter's contact to anyone interested, but it might be a bit of a drive for you, LostMarine.

    Just under two grand for the matte clear process on its own. His car is actually matte Estoril Blue, but sadly I don't have any pics. If I ever get the chance, I'll snap a few next time.

    Funny guy. In fact the grilles are on, and a fresh set of pics are on their way.
