Chrome delete on Silver F01. Pics!

Using silver and matte black vinyl, I was able to cover up all the chrome on the car. This included the rear trunk strip, door handles, side marker trim, front bumper grille trim, and soon we will be doing the kidney grilles. We also will be doing the rear diffuser in black as shown in the photos:

The chrome strip on the trunk looks still very much like chrome to me in the 6th picture

Also, is the 5th picture photoshoped as the gap above the tires is pretty much gone (lowered the car)?

I'm not a big fan of the lowered car look... looks too much like a pimp car, plus I think it would make the ride quite harsh especially considering the rim size (I assume those are the 21" rims?)!

Everything else looks nice though!

BMW sourced all the chrome trim from an Ebay seller. What a joke.

God damn they really F'ed up that car up.

Still the ugliest in the segment. Just being real.

Looks sick! That is how it should have came stock. I am not a big fan of its current styling although I think the engine, handling and performance are great!

looks sick as fudgee!!! so much better than the cheap looking chrome on the stock version. this car will do some serious damage with a proper bumper and updated taillights. Oh and those wheels look so beautiful, are they OEM?

Yes the wheels are OEM, best looking wheel I have ever seen a car manufacturer produce. They are mind blowing in person

the car is actually not lowered, that was just a photoshop to see how it would look. I think if anything, a mild 1" drop would keep it looking factory- kind of like the concept version BMW did
