Opinions? A Little Paint Work

Just thought I would get a little feedback.
I had my (crappy) plastic diffuser painted AW and that little cut-out, well, cut out. I picked up a piece of aircraft billet from a local metal fab shop, and had it painted flat black. On the kidney beans I had the chrome surround painted the AW, and the inner fins painted flat black. The horizontal grid across the brake duct openings was also painted AW. Along with my sub cover ... just for kicks

Good work man. Looks nice. Please, take the dealer sticker off the back tho - it's breaking up the clean lines.

Different strokes for different folks

You asked for feedback so I personally prefer a black on white contrast as mentioned earlier in the thread. Looks like it's well done though!

+1 I like the front but I don't care for the painted diffuser.

And tell B.C. I miss her.

The dealership sticker is coming straight off!
The local custom shop that did it only charged $250!! And I started sweating when the owner took me on a tour to see all of the restorations they had going on!
I tried it mainly because I hadn't seen this stuff done before. The longer I have it though, the more it grows on me. I really like the clean look.

Love the front. Was going to do my grill surrounds white as well. I color matched them and the door trim on my e46 and it looked much more sporty after. I don't think Ida done diffuser but it doesn't look bad. Deff gonna swipe your brake duct idea tho. That's hot.
