My 330ci... from beginning till now!

Hey guys, its been a while since i've posted on here. Been so busy haven't had enough time. But I realized today that is been about a year since I first began changing up my car a bit. I wanted to keep all my mod's classy and as close to the OEM look as possible! So here's a couple pics of her transformation! (These are all the cosmetic changes... Maintenece has always been kept up to date )


This is how she looked when I bought her.





My first mod was OEM LED Tail lights. Love the LED look so much better.

Photobucket

This was soon followed by ORION V2 angel eyes.





Now the big modding began. I bought my front Mtech bumper form Khoalty (which had perfect fitment), and my rear bumper I picked it up from Umnitza's warehouse (this also had very good fitment). I had no issues installing them at all. Also got some matte black grills from Jlevisw.





Test fitting the bumper before I had it painted.



Khoalty bumper vs my stock



I was very happy with the outcome





New headlight lenses were a must... So I bought a pair from Khoalty. Excellect product!



Crystal Clear!



I decided to wrap my interior trim with 3M scotchprint brushed aluminum. My first time ever wrapping, so there are minor imperfections, but i'm satisfied with the result!

Before:



After:











I got my VMR VB3's. Picked them up locally! (don't mind the stain on the concrete)





Also picked up this little baby locally



Making sure there are no leaks and such!



And this is how she looks today!




Let me know what you guys think! Comments and Criticism are welcome... as well as any recommendations as to what is next!

Yeah I hated my myrtle as well. Make sure you clean all your trim before really well. Also use like a heat gun or hair drier when working with it. I don't think its possible without! And just take your time... Takes a lot of patience and practice. I had to redo one of my door trims because I was impatient.
