If I get the Prior Design front bumper then maybe I'd consider getting the Prior Design sideskirts later on (just for the sake of matching up better) but this would definitely be later on, lol.
By "later on" I hope you mean "when Prior designs an E46 skirt that isn't ugly". I LOVE their front, but the skirts that come with that kit are kinda yucky. Me no likey. I'd keep the GTRs over those.

I love it mate. The whole silver/carbon thing is far too safe and been done to death so it's refreshing to see a new approach. I love the new blue kicks!

Haha... totally hear you, Bart! I appreciate your feedback and suggestion. Honestly I didn't look at the Prior Design skirts that closely... I do like my current GTR skirts a lot, so maybe I'll just focus on the front bumper for now.

Well done, sir. I'm not feeling the visible carbon fiber on the hood, but that is some clean work. Atlantis is one of the nicest colors BMW has offered, IMO.

Haha... thanks Paolo! Well, after our phone talk I know exactly which color you want to respray your car to and I think you picked a GOOD color. I hope you decide to go through with it. Thanks again for the "gift" you're sending me.

Thanks! Honestly it's my family who are the brave ones... it's MUCH easier to cope with this sort of medical trauma when you're the person doing the coping... so much more difficult to cope when it's a loved one going thru the ordeal.

I like your screen name... if you translate my name, Navin means "new" and Kumar means "prince", hence I'm the "New Prince", lol.

I apologize if this has been asked before, but is the engine bay painted, too?

Gorgeous color by the way. I'm doing a respray probably late 2012/2013. Right now I'm aiming for Monterey Blue (my favourite color from the PPG palette of Llamborghini) or some sort of deep purple similar to Daytona Violet.

Mine looks ok too, Stuart (the gray/silver strut towers look fine with the Atlantis Blue). Actually I had the outer edges of the engine bay painted in Atlantis Blue and later had the bodyshop paint some of the engine bay components Atlantis Blue, while keeping my CF engine bay components as is to stay true to the Atlantis Blue/CF color theme. Thanks for the kind words, dbworld4k. Looking forward to seeing your new paint color.
