It's a good thing I'm not getting a black one; I don't have that kind of money to spend! lol
Hmm, there shouldn't be any purple in there
You're good! I actually am going to have the chrome around the windows blacked out as well, in the near future

I'm not going with black rims though-- something a little more colorful

Yes, excellent point. Ideally, I'd like to have that entire plasti dip removed --that shop really did a terrible job on it.

i would swap the yellow overlay with smoked/black overlay...or at least cover just the hooked portion with a smoked overlay (resulting in a yellow stripe, not a yellow swoosh).

Talking Update 7-29-13

Oh wait a minute-- I actually did do another mod- it's very minor, but hey, it's still a mod!

Red overlay on the clear turn signal portion of my tail lights:

A closer look:

(Sorry, even my tail lights are so clean they end up just being mirrors and reflect everything)

Here's a few next to a stock 3IS so you can see the difference in the tail lights:

It's subtle, but it makes a difference, IMO.

Look, even the Audi was smiling at her rear

Ok maybe it's sneering at her- that grill is pretty menacing hehe

IntegresS, hope you don't take this the wrong way....wait actually you'll probably be accurate in thinking what you'll do....but can we have more photos of you in the shots of your car. Seems more complete that way : an owner should always be pictured with his/her ride.
