Black Sapphire Metallic Mod Thread

Hey everyone. I bought a BSM M4 recently and have begun to black it all out. One thing I’ve noticed is that some of the aesthetic mods that “pop” on differently colored Ms don’t really have the same effect on these black cars (lips, diffusers, spoilers, etc.). The official BSM thread seemed pretty stale and was mostly stock photos. I’d love to see everyone’s BSM cars that have been modded so I can get some ideas...

Install chrome window trim and kidneys to get some contrast.

I just finished making the entire exterior black (BSM grille surround, black side marker and trunk badge, black tips and exhaust) so I don’t think I want to work backwards. I do think some color may be necessary though, and may consider bronze rims or something.

Nothing wild for me. Also added CF side skirts after these pictures were taken.

Wheels, drop, front lip, side skirts, diffuser. All that really needs to be done.

High Octane, your M4 is perhaps one of the best looking "Vantablack" vehicles. Nice!
