My first photo shoot with my Twilight Purple M340i

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
So a few days after getting my car, I left my car at ONEighty as they've always taken care of me and my cars, since me and the owner go years back.

I had the following installed on my car, with more future things planned as well:

Install black front grill
Install black bumper trim
Install iND color matched front/rear reflectors and mirror caps
Install OEM M Performance side skirts, front lip and carbon fiber spoiler
NDVinyls wrapped my roof in carbon fiber vinyl
NDVinyls made all BMW emblems black and white
ONEighty Powdercoated the exhaust 'tips' black
ONEighty Painted calipers in acid green
Tinted the windows 20%
Hardwire dashcam and radar detector
Installed ONEighty front and rear wheel spacers

Future plans include a downpipe, tune, exhaust, springs, painted headlights

Enjoy the pics!

Since the dark purple paint and green calipers are such loud and contrasting colours, in my opinion, this car is 100% calling for aftermarket rims: Gold/Bronze, Silver, White, or Black..

Look forward to more of your updates!

Excellent work

I agree. Purple and green and maybe some bronze rims. Or even black. And it’ll look even better!

Looks so good! That looks a lot lighter than 20% tint.

Oneighty does some really good work. They took care of my 540xi few years back.

Wow, that is absolutely stunning. Nice!

That thing is screaming for black wheels though. That would set off the look perfectly, IMO, of course.

thanks for the comments guys! i honestly didn't want ALL black wheels with the car or else i would've ordered them from factory like that. i personally like the bi-color wheels I wound up deciding on, but I do hear the comments about going aftermarket and getting something like gold..

maybe it'll happen eventually

Great job! CF mirror caps will complete the look.

Can't believe how good the green calipers look with the purple. Again great job with everything.

Wow. That's a looker. Reminds me of the E36 Daytona Violet M3 that a buddy of mine had back in the day. I loved that car
