One of the Nicest ZHP's you've seen????

Enjoy attached.

Its actually a very dark blue, not black

The color is BMW-ORIENTBLAU METALLIC

Should I go with clear or smoked side markers?

The rear lights are smoked LED. Front end is pretty lit up so was thinking brightness matching.

Wow modest too! But really nice ride, I'd say clears are a cleaner look and while you're at it change the rears to clear as well. It will be a nice look

Ditch the tinted rears for clears (specifically RCR) and change fog lights to a color not so blue. Looks like your AE's are 6000k so I would get matching colored Fogs. ddmtuning.com sells a 40$ kit that works and matches pretty good. Other than that car is perfect. Absolutely love the color. Maybe coilovers if they're in the budget?

I'm about to order

Bilstein sport Shocks
eibach pro kit springs
eibach sway bars.

I thought about coilovers...

Contimplating doing powerflex bushings as well....

I am planning to change the fog lights to match the AE's.

Don't really want to replace the rear lights since I just bought them

Comments, advice, cursing welcome.

Definitely not the nicest. Not even close. Why do you have blue fog lights?

sweet ride. very clean. I'd go with black kidneys tinted corners to match the tails and maybe even a color matched time attack ring to match your paint. but that's just me.

Nope.

LEDs date the car, ironically.

I agree. With a sedan R/C/R is the way to go in my opinion.

Nicest? Not with those bright blue fog lights, overzealous angel eyes, and tinted LED tail lights.
