Am I the only one that thinks this look is HOT?!?!?!

Hey Guys,

I posted this a while back but needed some more responses.
///ACS-3, I hope you don't mind if I used your car beautiful car to photoshop

With my ACS kit, which I'm getting soon, I'm wondering if I should paint the part around the lower grille and have the grille painted black like in the picture. I saw someone who did it on the coupe with the Hamann Kit and damn, it looked sweet! HAHA, anyways, here are the pics. The last one has the hartge front lip. Thanks for the opinions guys!

You should paint the fog light housings and laterals also.

So your saying that I should paint everything body color except the center grille, right? Hmm, haven't considered that. My car is steel blue by the way. Sounds very interesting!

I think those pics look ugly. I say paint the fog housings and laterals (and mesh, all the parts that a 330 has in silver) to steel blue to match your car. That would look a lot better.

This is great! I can't believe some of my fellow E46ers live so close to me! I'll keep an eye out for you guys as well.

Oh, how about his? Any better? It's only a subtle change. The fogs and the housing were painted to match the car color.

I want to paint it because I think it gives it sort of a S3 ART front look, in a weird twisted way

That looks way better....

with the middle not painted.

I think it's cool that we have a rep. from Cerritos, Whitney, and Gahr High on the board - I guess the guy's from Tracy high are on the Yugo board?

I think this looks the best, I might have to "borrow" that idea. What front add-on is that? R/D?

If you're thinking about painting it, might as well trade it with a 323/325/328ci, I'm sure some other fellow e46fanatics people will love to have the titanium lower grill. Just a thought...
