    PHOTO CONTENt: 135i AW with iCarbon bits---CLEAN

    Here are some shots of my car. This is how I think a nice Bimmer should look like, no obnoxius-aftermarket-tuner-like rims, no cant-see-$#@!-through window tints, etc...But that's just me, I like trying to keep all modifications to look like OEM somehow, but sportier, and not having that obvious aftermarket look. altough I agree there are some effin awseome cars in this forums, but for me, Clean please. Only thing missing for me to be perfect, its the 313 performance rims an the rear CF diffuser.
    Under the hood, there's a JB4, DCI, UR downpipes and Meth kit its on its way, and im waiting for meistershaft to release the new system for the 135i with EV control. Stupid BMW is making a mess out of the new perfromance steering wheel release, so IDK when I will be able to buy it, altough it was officialy release at the begining og this month.
    I do have to say, my camera is old now, and it was a simple DSC, so sorry for the little ghost appearing in some of the photos, I also need to get a tripod...
    Exterior: Bmw CF trunk spoiler-iCarbon CF front lip-iCarbon kidney grilles.
    When I was buying the cf bits, I found little to none pictures of them in AW cars, and when I found them, they wouldnt make justice or werent good photos, So I hope this can help someone out.

    Nice I like the white with the CF bits, but what's the blue thing? Maybe I'm new to the exterior parts field but I have no idea what the blue is on the front lip/bumper

    Comments accepted. After all, I have the whole BMW Design team that created that overboard aftermarket spoiler(and blacked out kidney's) on my side! We professional designers think alike I guess... But I aprecciate it! Thanks!

    It's a band-aid...lol

    I've struggling with the fitment on that side of the lip. It sticks out a little bit, and you can see the inner 3M tape. I dont want to remove it all over again because I put so much tape on it that is glued as hell, its only that side that didnīt sticked well. Lets hope the new tape I put make's the job this time.

    The tape sticks out like a sore thumb, you need to get rid of that.

    I understand, please get us photos without the tape as well though when/if the rain lets up. Maybe it won't rain tomorrow?

    Will try to. Im leaving for Chicago tomorrow morning, lets hope no rain today, and a new location.

    When I said obnoxius wheels, I meant people putting 22's in a 1 series and so, so hope nobody takes it the wrong way, nothing wrong with some Arc 8 to fit more rubber or some VMR's looking badass, altough im a sucker for the Bmw 313 performance rims.

    Haha, After removing the tape, it still had a gap, very small now, but you can only see it if your are right above it or on your knees, Ive been so lazy lately, dont fee like installing it all again.
