Very nice, bumpers look good. Are they fiberglass or plastic?

Looks good, just don't know why people opt for smoke up front and clear in the back.

Lol because not everyone has the same views as you I would imagine.. I personally like smoked up front with a euro clear in the back.. To each their own.

Well congratulations Broach. Of course everyone has their own opinion. Whatever you like is fine. Doesn't change the fact that it's an inconsistent look. The car looks confused IMO. M3 front bumper on a facelifted 3, and then euro sedan taillights. Looks like there was no planning involved... Again, IMO. The work from the body shop looks good. Just looks like he took elements from all these different cars and put it all into one and it came out jumbled.

Either way, it doesn't look bad by any means.. Just kind of 'wtf?'
