    I think I have good taste. But everyone thinks that about their taste.

    I like how they play off each other or else it might blend together but different tastes.

    That looks very nice. That looks like some quality carbon fiber work as well. The grain lines up nicely.

    I thought the different shades was due to the picture. I agree with Bimmerbear: would look better if all were the same shades of purple. Even better if the exterior of the car matched. Would a purple M3 be too rice?

    That explains it. Still, a nice looking engine compartment and SC pieces. Click here to enlarge

    Yes. I like. That last query was tongue-in-cheek. Sorry. But if those AA violet accents match BMW's techno violet then very cool. I wish these "individual" colors were easier (read cheap) to come by. I get tired of the same old blues and grays.

    They do not but techno violet wouldn't 'pop' under the hood in the same way.
