I have been looking for a 6MT RWD BMW for a while now and recently I came across one I had to jump on. I bought it from a used car dealership in NJ on 3/14/17 and it was my first manual car. I've been riding a motorcycle for years and was always a car enthusiast so it was a concept I understood. I made it back to NY after 10 or so stalls and stupidly forgot the EZ pass i brought with me. The car had 42.8K miles and I opted for the N55 as opposed to the N54. My short term plans are to get fully comfortable with the car, do some exterior mods, try the track/autocross/drag race, basically learn and become comfortable while pushing the limits. I also want to so some performance mods after warranty expires which ends this August. My daily driver is a 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart (baby Evo) and my long term plan is to eventually do a FBO 135i to 1M conversion.

Details @ Time of Purchase:
- Color: Jet Black (Schwarz 2 - 668)
- Black Leather Interior w/ Glacier Silver Aluminum Panels
- M Sport Package
- Comfort Access System
- Harman Kardon Surround Sound System
- 20% Window Tints All Around

Current:

Exterior:
- 5% Sun Strip Tint
- Taillight 35% Blackout
- Lux V5 H8 Adjustable Angel Eyes @ 7.8K
- Matte Black Grille

35% Tint Taililght Blackout

The first thing I did was do a 5% sun strip on the windshield and blacked out my rear taillights with 35%. This is the result. I think I kinda went too dark. Opinions?

Matte Black Grilles

Easiest way to do it is to follow the DIY thread and I found it easier using a hook or 90 degree tool to unclip grilles

Wrong section, bro. You might want to move this to the general e82 photos section where you'll get more people interested.
