Another Plasti Dip creation

Just get bored about the exterior of 1er so decided to use the existing can of plasti dip to spray part of the front bumper. But for some reason after I have sprayed it, I simply can't tell whether it is looking good or not (you know the strange moment that you can't answer yourself).

So what do you guy think? Should I leave it or back to original.....

Actually was thinking about doing the same exact thing to my car just can't find any plasti dip where I live. You just confirmed it for me. I love it. Keep it. Kinda appears you have splitters.

This was my original thought !! but I found out that it is very hard to do the middle one because I can't find the edge as the seperation point (if you know what I'm trying to say).

Confirming it's a keep! How do you feel about doing ///M in appropriate colors on the driver side one (minus the "M")?

Paint codes: (Credit to josiahg52, M5board.com)

Pantone Process Blue (PMS 859)
Pantone Violet (PMS 268)
Pantone Warm Red (PMS 836)

Some people choose a dark blue like Reflex Blue (PMS 852) to replace Violet 268 and a darker red.
BMW (approximate and/or accepted equivalent) colors:

Light Blue GLASURIT-BMW 5002
Blue Violet GLASURIT-BMW 4000
Red GLASURIT-BMW 353

Sounds interesting, maybe putting it down on the driver side air duct...

Something like this?

I imagine this could be done much cheaper at a local vinyl sign shop.

I saw that on a white car posted here recently. I think yours works better--it's more subtle. Here's my car with a similar idea: wrapped matte grey, leaving the black spoilers.

Exactly what I had in mind.

$45 for the correct size (I believe) from Bimmian http://www.bimmian.com/M-Colored-Str...r-E88-1-Series

For that price it'd probably be silly to do it with plasti-dip, if those colors even existed within their options.

Absolutely silly to do with plastidip. You've got me on a mission, gonna see if I can get some made up local in M colors and german flag colors.
