It looks great; I just have concerns over how well the lights work... They're there for a reason.

Interesting. Good transmission of light through the tinting spray. And it looks like it came out smooth as well. As far as the car itself goes, you'll probably get a bit of flaming, some people don't like black wheels. I on the other hand appreciate a well done wheel

What suspension setup are you sittting on? That is sooo not a stock ride height

R.I.P fast 6


Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.

to be honest I have no idea what suspension is under the car, I didn't see anything special or out of the ordinary when I took the wheels off.

the ground isn't level either, could be adding to the look :

next I think I'm going to get a CAI but I need to decide which one. my only previous experience with mods was with domestic V8s and Japanese import 4 bangers. This German stuff is out of my league and suggestions? I've already decided to go with the super sprint exhaust

The AFE & Conforti CAI's fit real well & are a good choice, the Supersprint Catback is also a excellent choice.....OEM fit & great price! Free shipping!


BMW E36 325/328 Supersprint Exhaust - Muffler

Free shipping also: Make sure you select the ProDry S style.........

I'd personally get KW coilovers, although Koni's also seem to be of very good quality.

Edit:
post some full body shots of your car so I can start flaming you
