Hello!

I got my car out of winter storage on Sunday and was able to install the trim that I painted body color over the winter, here are a couple pics of it freshly installed.

Now I need to get my 19" style 67's stripped, painted and cleared - I only managed to strip 2 of them over the winter, it's a pain.

Mtech II is gorgeous, but I am more of a fan of the black trim... Interested to see how your paint job holds up, especially with the front trim piece as that is exposed to the most abuse from road sand/rocks, etc. I did a grille once that I really really took my time with and it turned into a dalmation after one trip to bav auto! So I wish you luck with the paint job, I hope it lasts a long time! Also, it would probs look much nicer without the front plate bracket, but yeah, Mass cops would be all over you. Replace those ///M center caps with BMW ones, look better too..

Thanks for the feedback! I hope I don't have the same experience with the front trim, but I will check in when the summer is over...

Please do, I'd love to see if it lasts.. if it does not, it will get all speckled far sooner than the end of the summer... also depends on what kind of driving you do, mostly around town, it would last a shitload longer than highway driving..

One thing you could do to clean up the center is to get a license plate delete strip (costs less than $30 from the dealer) and have that painted like you have on the rest of your trim pieces. To solve the license plate issue, just get a tow hook license plate holder from gominigo and mount your license plate where the tow hook goes. Very easy to do and looks good imho Here's an example showing my ZHP with one...

I have to agree with Mike here...keep us posted on how well your front trim handles the road debris...

it's just because you haven't taken the time to contribute in a long while, especially with some new pics of that 530i!

You can't handle pics of the 530. She's too beautiful for you measly E46ers.

Sam, how much have you damaged the clear coat on your 530i hood already? I bet it needs a good polish right now.
