This car with some crazy two tone paint job will NOT look good. If you were also doing some crazy body work to go along with the project, that will be one thing, but on a largely stock body, two tone is just going to look like you're trying way too hard IMO

Regardless, good luck with whatever you end up doing.

PS: I think having a "tiffany" colored car would be a little Again, if it were a show car, sure go for it as it would stand out but on a daily driver that is still rather "stock", please don't

If you make it look like it is a 12 sec f&f car then expect some jabs when it isnt even a 14 second car. My gf has a 323, and I love it, its not fast, but its a ton of fun to drive anyway. Keep it simple, if you like tiffany blue, great. have the bmw logos switched to tiff blue, use very small ways to indicate your joy of the color, but dont go too extravagant. Most importantly like someone else already said, it is already a tad dated, in two years you will be ready to throw up everytime you look at it.


op, I hope you dont take offense, but this is the best advice I can give.

if that is your car pictured above with the tiff blue stripe photochopped in, dont mess with it, its a good looking ride, a ride that will get respect from anyone 16 to 80.
thanks. really helpful advice

OP personal opinion keep it simple, and do stubble changes that you will still like years from now, and you do not want to be that easily traceable.
