:hi: Lets See Some Accents

I want to see some cleanest looking accents done with some paint or vinyl or just something that makes your car unique!

It doesnt matter if its a stock car with just a few accents to the most modded out e46 around

The rules are simple:
No M's


The Reason im doing this is because i really want some ideas on which direction i want to go with my car because i have some ideas but i just want to see what some fellow fanatics have done!

Hmm... some of the small mods I've done to my car:

I used black electrical tape to cover up the silver part of the ZHP Knob. It looks perfect, fits in better (nothing else silver in my int.), and nobody would ever guess. I also switched out the M gear display on the shift knob for a non-M one, because, well I don't have an M3.

I covered my interior trim with that fake-cf vinyl. Personally, I love it.

Don't forget my piplup drift charm hanging off my sun shades LOL.

Anyways, nothing that big compared to some of the other nice cars on e46f.

Sometimes something really small can go along way. For me, I hated that faded black that was on my pillars. One small change from JLeviSW to me made all the difference in the world. CF Pillars FTW!!

The whole dark/black accent theme on my car is what makes me live with TiAg lol.





Black/White embems, black kidneys, black window trim, blackout headlight inserts, smoked lenses all around and matte black splitters make it all click for my car!
