Is that what clients tell you when you outline a health routine for them?

I'm a big fan of black with red leather. I don't know if it's too common though. Plus black rims, with a red accent strip around them, on a black car with red interior would look amazing.

No offense, but.... holy 2008. That time attack trend came and left. Same as the lambo doors, murdered out look, and spinner rims

Idk about spinner rims, I was thinking more subtle.. black on black looks really nice. I've become a huge fan of white and gold colored rims though. Keep in mind, I'm not talking about 24s. I'm talking about subtle 18s or 19s, with the red stripe just as an accent to the interior. I've seen it look nice before, maybe depends on how it's done.
Oh and Lambo doors are tacky on anything but a Lambo.

That was a huge trend again. And it's become so overdone that anything BBS style is just cringe worthy. However, I still believe that the red accents on the rims can look good

ehhhh there are exceptions. yes bbs have become a huge trend but this style rim has been around for decades and they look timeless on many cars....

BBS LM or CH will always look drool-worthy on e46's IMO. When you go with the basket style 5's or older looking, deep dish, retro throwbacks... eh, looks good but that was trend as well, and still is among many jetta drivers

Volks/Ray's TE37 is a trend across many cars... however you put those on an R34 and in 1000 years they will still be the best damn looking rim for that car

Kiwi interior. I'm not personally a fan, but it shows you what you could have done if you wanted to do it.

Honestly... you need to see the color on a cloudy day, at dawn/dusk, and at night.

The same thing went for LSB. It is vibrant in the sun, and its gorgeous, but that color looks spectacular under darker lighting as well.

Do you think it's too obnoxious? This is where I'm kind of torn

I agree on a bright sunny day the car pops a good amount. I like it... see the pic above. That color looks amazing under darker lighting.

Pheonix/Dakkar Yellow are examples of "yikes" colors. I think Yas Marina just squeaks by the threshold of "too much"

I would get it in a heartbeat... in fact it would probably be my first choice. White is nice... but dude you are driving a brand new M4. Have some fun with it, this color is going to be high in demand down the road. White/silver will be a dime a dozen.
