Foil? Sounds awesomely cheap and looks great! Is there a DIY?

indeed, it's supercheap, fast reversible and pretty easy to put it on ;] DIY in polish:

What is foil as opposed to tint? I did the same to mine with laminX tint film. Going on a few years now and still looks good

It's the same thing. We just use a different word for the material than in Europe (i.e. touring vs. estate)

You have great taste, the car looks amazing!!

I have my lights setup that exact same way on my M3, ambers all around and all red and amber in the back

Went with clears on my touring though.

I asked this question here and only got one response and am hoping to get a better response. What size tires should I get for my Style 216's (18x8 & 18x8.5)? I would like a tiny hint of stretch but most of all to keep it classy. It seems with the suggested stock setup the rears have more stretch then the front? I am not sure I like the looks of that.

I would use 215/40 front and 225/40 rear. It will depend on the tire brand too, but most will fit ok.

Yeah I was thinking they were reps that's why I wanted to know wich ones.

Here is my touring:

2005 325xi, sport package, black on black, 5 spd manual





Future plans for the Touring include KW V1 coilovers, OEM M3 mirrors, 18'' or 19'' OEM wheels to keep it OEM+, blacked out trim, painted moldings, front plate delete molding, angel eyes.

Yeah it's a pretty rare combo, that's why I jumped on it. I have a feeling I won't have too much trouble selling if I ever decide too.

yes, those are dare lm`s 8.5 x19 front with 225/35 and 9.5x19 with 235/35. I`d love to have true bbs, but they are quite expensive for me right now, maybe one day when i grow up
I dont have many pics yet, but i`m working on them.. i`ve got few with friends e91... my car is dirty, because it was not planned ps.. i`ll do it better next time

Looks great polonez.

This was done the same day the rear subframe was removed.
