    i hope you didnt tint your front screen like that for the sake of looks. you shouldnt put other peoples life's at risk just to make the car look cool....

    Also you blackened the entire car but not the wheels?

    You know that the govt puts in tinting limits so that you don’t end up killing people, right?

    I didn’t tint the windshield. I never do. Rest of the car is also not that dark, 35%. Looks darker as pic was taken at night.

    The wheels look fine to me, so not touching them for now. May be later.

    hmm yah well we know america is a bit more liberal with front tints (i.e. allowing tints at all) to a point where people cant even see anything out of their windshield at dawn.

    If you are from europe white cars always look a bit odd as you only ever see that colour on taxis or vans. And tbh in middle europe taxis are usually yellow.

    Speak for your own country!
    Here in Belgium white is for premium and sportscars.
    Vans are often blue and silver.
    Taxi's are all black here.

    that's exactly what I meant. they usually look a bit fleety. I think your car has a lot of shine to it which makes it look more like a really silvery white.

    Oh I have midnight silver metallic. The pear white was my second choice. I think it looks better in person though and if model 3s look the same in 10 years I will probably get white if there’s nothing better out there haha

    LOL! It would be a lot easier to move the M3 to the mountain than the mountain to the M3!

    After many months of thinking about it and negotiating and waiting what felt like an eternity, I finally got the wheels I wanted. It took me and my buddy the entire Saturday to paint the calipers but I think she came out perfect. What you think?

    I’m considering a chrome delete next, just gotta find a good DIY video.

    Just picked mine up! This thing is silly fast! I had a 5.7L Pontiac GTO with straight pipes and bolt on in the past, though that my fast car days were behind me. This thing will smoke that old thing with nothing more than a whisper! Exceeds expectations every way!

    I really like this look. Do you mind sharing which wheels/spacer etc. you used? Is yours a AWD non-P (mine is).

    This is a RWD LR, while I had the wheels off I painted the brake calipers. The wheels are 20" Savini SV-F2 with Michelin Pilot Sport A3's. 235s up front 275's in the rear no spacers needed.
