Why repaint an 11 year old car that already has a decent paint job and an engine bay that could make use of the $ for something bigger? Does it grow on trees by you?

the car got wrecked due to a blow out. im repairing the body work and i have a m3 bumper thats goin on there. so the car needs to be repainted anyways.

money def does not grow on trees by me but sellin trees makes the money. i grind hard for my cash and i earn the right to spend it how i see fit.

damm this thread went bad fast. i didnt mean to come off as a big shot or db, just found the comment "does money grow on trees" a bit rude. im actually a pretty humble and low key person.

thanks justmadethecut for ur input and for getting the thread back on track.

tiffany as a company is lame but yes the color is nice. idk if u guys wear any diamond supply co. clothes but thats the sort of theme im going for. i really want a 2 tone paint job and i want it to be somethin no one has. any and all input is greatly appreciated. as for re-sale of the car.. i dont think i would ever sell it. i bought it with cracked headcasket and no transmission. this is my project car for the past 2 years

Really, bro? Anyone who thinks it's cool to brag about selling weed is a douchebag... and those who defend them... idiots.

You can't be a very good drug dealer (or driver for that matter) if you're driving around an 11 year old car (at the end of the day, it is). Admitting to selling drugs on an open web forum in a truly unique car that clearly identifies you probably doesn't help your case either, or likely to win you any friends.

In any case, this is exactly why I don't want to go to meet-ups.

lol everyone assumes dealers are loaded. it keeps food on my stomach and school books on my table, it's not a profession it's just makin ends meet. imho i see nothin wrong with driving a eleven year old car. my next project car is a 64 chevy. if im looked at as a bad driver for liking my car so be it.

this is a joke right? first you ask what color you should get your car painted, then you try to justify selling drugs to keep food in your stomach and school books on the table.

i cant take this seriously.

well its not my money so watev. if you want an opinion, tiffany's is played out as a company in general. girls dont like that crap anymore cuz their boyfriends from high school already bought them the heart-shaped pendon. i think the color is coo if you are a chick but as a dude, i would go with a midnight blue heavy on white pearl. i think it would really set it off and increase the resale value tremendously. no ones gonna buy your ***** tiffany's colored 10 year old bmw. i would also consider getting some mesh wheels and paint them to match leaving the polished lip of course!

or part it the fuq out

Hey It's hard to find honest work in this economy! Just photoshop the color you want. In the end it's your car...
