looks UNBELIEVABLE!! only thing i would suggest is possibly upgrading the angel eyes to a true white, and maybe getting a nice tint on your windows. but wow, very different, very nice.

oh and maybe blackout/smoke your lights. head and tail.

ledzepp41- I love the idea of tinting the windows, but unfortunately it's not legal here. At the moment I do like the OEM-like color AE, I might change it to white and smoke the lights when I get bored later

weasel56- my photo-modding skill is not good enough to do glossy effect. But send me the high res of IMGP3769 and I can give it a try.

Ok.. the handles... reasons why I wanted to black them was I find the doors are pretty big and plain, needed something on the door to bring it together with the my two tone theme. However, I do agree with others that it might look cheap and reminds me of the older / lower end BMW.

So this is the trick / compromise that i did (notice I leave the end part of the handle in bodycolor). I think it meets what I want and it actually look kind of cool in real life with the different lighting. This is only black stickers and not painted yet. Let me know what do guys think?

I agree that from a distance they do look like lower end models but the lower end ones were plastic matt black, on a different note they do go with your theme. In the end it is you who has to like them, and if you ever paint them make sure they shine a little so that they don't look like the plastic ones.

I like the black handles they break it up a bit and echo your theme.
