do you think this is the original package (at least from the outside) and nothing has been altered?

Same here. (except for the window tint...)
Sugestions:
1. Paint your grey sideskirts, it will look worlds better BMW didn't start doing it themselves until later yeras.
2. Clearcorners look good on a black car.
3. Elipsoid headlights. They look the same but they are glass, much higher quality, and project the light instead of reflecting it (which means you can see much better, no hotspots)

Nice

both.

You have to paint the front and rear bumper, but you don't have to paint the lower rocker panels. You can remove the gray on them using a degreaser. However, it is a good idea to spray a clear coat over them if you do.

Not to bust you up, but they look way different. The projectors give it a much more agressive look, I think my favorite part about them is the way they look during the day!! B)

Your car looks like a virgin. Do with her what you will (Bitcore has some good ideas)!
