Hey guys,

Found another picture. Idk why every picture I find is at the same angle.

Not a fan of this combination even though I love the sakhir interior I guess the black really hides so much from the car.

Thanks!
It needs a black grill and silver wheels badly. Lol at the child seat, I guess all the M3s were taken. Maybe an admin at M-division getting last pick

It does highlight one thing that make me want to stay away from black this time though, you need to keep your tire walls very clean to not have them look that ugly grayish.

Yup. Looks like any other black 435i from front.

The black wheels make it look far worse than any 435i I've seen.

I like it a lot- understated but aggressive. Wouldn't get black because as already stated it conceals a lot of the cars detail. Black wheels are better than the silver IMO though- look more sporting although both wheel options are rather underwhelming if I'm honest.

I like it, I would go with this combination plus black grill and darker windows. I first was going with mineral grey but I did not like how the color looks in the sun.

Here is one more pic in Black Sapphire, seems to te equipped with winter tires. Man, these yellowish halogen tail lights really suck, I get upset every time I see it.

I think the OP's picture is not the best due to the poor angle causing light reflection.

Blacked out cars are kind of cool but you need everything but the lights blacked out. In this case, the grill and the chrome/white light case kind of ruins the look. Also works better with Matte Black, IMO.

And if it does appears more like a 435i, I don't mind because then it's then "stealth" and you're less likely to have cops staring at you and racers wanting to race you. I buy an M3 because I like to drive it, not because I want to be seen driving it.

Hint: We don't care what people drive. It's a perpetuated myth that, in most cases, just isn't true.

That widespread myth is just about as popular as the one about ticket quotas. LOL!

That car with silver wheels look really good, a pity of the restrictive angle.

This is exactly the scheme I want. Darken the windows to 35% and it's a sleeper.
