1M Accessories

I ran across this web site and thought it had some pretty unique stuff. Thought I would share a couple.

http://www.bimmian.com/Mechunik-Whee...r-E88-1-Series

http://www.bimmian.com/M-Colored-Gri...r-E88-1-Series

Lots more stuff there as well. I am NOT affiliated with this site in any way!

I ordered the M Color Grill stickers today. $20 + $5 shipping. Easier to me than hunting down the proper colors myself.

Looks like they have M interior stickers.... a no brainer for me..... sold.

I want the grill stickers.... sold.

But they also have the wider stickers which I would like to put on the bottom of the door sill

But can a girl have toooo many M stickers on her car?

Opinions?

Here is a real feminine touch: I might not...or just might

This Forum in the begining had way more active female members and was more fun and colorful, then in time something happened and almost all ladies dropped off, we had you, the racing lady with the Porsche and an elder lady who were posting great andd crazy fun stuff. I even thought that you all sold your 1Ms to your jealous male neighbours in the meantime! Welcome back and no, you can't have enough M stickers or so, just check this, post 12 and onwards:

IMO their light blue stripe doesnt match the M stripe. Should be darker like this...

My original attempt (pictured below) was actually with a shade thats probably identical to the ones you linked. Most sources had that lighter minty looking blue product. Seems like almost everyone gets their vinyl from the same distributor/source. I spent a good amount of time trying to find vinyl that was the correct color.

I never considered selling it, I didnt think anyone would really want it. Besides how much can you sell a 1/8 inch strip of vinyl for.

What I did was ask for samples from as many places as possible in an attempt to find the right colors (plus I wanted a matte stripe not a glossy one). Turned out the samples were large enough to do the stripes so I never even had to purchase sheets.

You know, in Colorado it's winter.... yucky cold roads with lots of salt and sand and I just don't have the heart to get my 1M out that much, then I forget how great it is and forget to look up you guys on the forum. I do look in here and there. Glad to see the same people and I will try to post a few things now and again.

I will let you know if the colors are right when I get mine. I believe this web site's parent site is out of USA?

Thanks
