2012 AW 135i - Random Pics

2012 Alpine White 135i - Mods are located in my sig.

Just throwing up some random pics of my car. Also, just got a Canon S100 so I took a few shots just to test it out. They look pretty good but I'll still need to play around quite a bit with it.

Just washed!

The thing about changing the roundels I think is that it really sets your car apart and its pretty subtle. I am also a Syracuse grad so I need to display my school pride still since I'm only a year and a half removed haha.\

I personally really like the orange right now and if I decide I want to go back I can always just peel them off.

It's obviously not traditional but I say do what you want to do man, it's your car! What about blue/orange instead of white? Too much? The ///M grills are a nice touch

I like how the orange roundels match with the corner ambers. However, the grill M stripes make the front look too busy.

I unfortunately agree with you in that the front does look a bit busy but I love the M stripes on the grill as well as the roundels. I agree with how they match the amber corners and think it looks great, but may need to decide to remove one or the other.

Definitely thought about the blue and orange but I like the orange and white since our colors aren't blue and orange anymore.
