    Time for some cosmetic upgrades

    So I've shifted my focus to cosmetics rather than performance. Just a couple of pics sent to me while car is being wrapped. Color is Matte blue Metallic. I know it's my preference, but what do you guys think? Should I leave the carbon fiber or wrap it all with carbon fiber accents. Will post more pics as they are sent.

    I say wrap it. Just my random thoughts

    1. Matte paint/wrap + Gloss CF = no bueno.
    2. Would look ideal if you had it painted and faded into CF at the power dome part. Obviously that's not doable with a wrap.

    Cover it up is the route i'd go with.

    That's what I'm leaning towards. Trying to locate a cf lip for the m3 replica bumper and everyone seems to be out of stock. Thanks your opinion is appreciated. Now I've got to find some headlights and that seems to be impossible with adaptive headlights. Anyone have a recommendation? Don't like the stock headlights at all.

    LCI conversion. Fronts are the same lamp unit, no?

    Either way black them out for sure. The amber crap inside the E8x headlight is awful, but the pre-lci E90 is truly egregious. You already have the dark theme going with the blackline tails so why not continue it. I'll be sending my headlights off to Lightwerkz in NJ soon, if you are somewhat local to Sammy I know he's done it numerous times before as a DIY.

    What are they doing to your headlights? LCI conversion is only headlights or body parts as well? Is Sammy close to Dallas?

    Well my E90 is bone stock so Iím not touching those headlights. The E88 Iím having them do a full blackout, upgraded rings, and amber delete. Itís frankly over played but it looks aggressive, thereís no denying that.

    I *think* up front LCI conversion for E90 is just a headlight swap. The rears have differing shapes but front headlights Iíd think would just bolt in. Donít quote me on that.

    No idea where exactly Sammy is in TX. I tried tagging him but the damn feature isnít playing nice. But I def know heís done them before.

    Love the color. I think some window tint 15-20% would really make it pop.
