well i dunno, i may be buying a CF hood in the near future, but i would not personally paint it. im buying it for the look , the weight loss is second to the look IMO.
also id like to see some pics. lots of people frown apon neon on a BMW but id like to see the pics before i judge.

also what colour is your car?

LOL

my friend has a cf hood on his 92 e36. jet black car, racing dynamics xhaust lowered Hm2 rims. m3 bumper. the works

well wat he did was pain the outer 2/3 of the cf hood so just the middle portion of the hood is CF looking. it looks pretty good because teh cf is not amazingly visible from far away.

yep, and nothing says fast like neons.

And wings are stupid. Period. A small spoiler can be done no problem, but leave the wings to real race cars.

Seems to be a big misconception these days with some people, big wing doesn't make it look fast, it makes it look gay (personal opinion). There is next to nothing driven on the streets today that requires any of the wings I see on these hondas in my city. A nice M spoiler would make it look powerful.

GOOD reply

and neons, our group of friends chipped in to buy one friend red neon underbody lights for his ford mustang gt (i hate fords). He hardly ever uses it because the fuses or lights keep blowing out!

i can second that

Yes i love the look of the stock M spolier. If I have the money after suspension upgrades I want to get one, just because I like a small spolier and the M one is subtle and yet looks meaningful all at once.

To answer your question (kinda forgot to do that the first time) if you want your car to look "fast" *cough* rice *cough* then don't paint the hood. But IMO for most cars it looks pretty gay. Some cars pull it off nicely. However, if your painting the hood then no one will believe that it is carbon fiber... tuff decision you face.

M spoilers don't look that great.... makes the car look too boxy to me... and there is nothing wrong with adding a small drag wing....... ifff your car has a built motor and you plan on doing some track time with it.. other than that, leave any kind of spoiler off the car... it's a sedan, not a fricken sports car.... keep it clean, buy a geo

your on crack. the M spoiler doesnt make the car look more boxy, and besides its actually a functional spolier unlike most out there that either work very little or not at all

i agree totally but i want to make the outside look fast also
Like e36_332i_s52 said, Dont make it *look* fast, I think you'd be more happy if you MADE it faster and then focused on the "looks"... If your avatar is your car, I say it's perfectly fine as it is.
Seriously, I sugest you don't make it look any different than it is. The only thing I'm doing to my stock car visually is replacing the headlights and domes because, the headlights are plastic and are yellowing, and the domes are both cracked badly and arn't bright at all.
