    You know mate, I was toying with that idea too, but I vote nae!

    It doesn't look good IMHO. Liking your original colour, that's very lush.... Red

    is the carbon for pure aesthetics in mind?

    Basically yes, there will be weight savings but surely wont make a noticable difference?

    I was considering it a while ago but if I do it then really I would want the lot done (bonnet, roof, and boot) and I am thinking its alot of money and fuss and I am not too sure if it would look good or if it would go from a classy motor to a boy racers banger.

    What a lovely car.....personally keep it the way it is....otherwise it looks as if you had to replace the bonnet and are yet to have it painted...defo goes from classy to boy racer quicker than the car can do 0-60!!!!!

    as a mod on its own...no
    as a final touch to a heavily modified M3 eater...maybe

    never shined through in what i've shown.
