    also i might just put a body kit on it if i find a really good deal and that would require a spray....might just do a custom paintjob and skip the caron fiber parts cause i have a feeling it would cost around the same and i can get rid of the silver paint

    Custom paint jobs cost a bomb mate.. probably more than you paid for the car.

    As far as the quad exhaust goes thats going to be adding a massive amount of weight meaning decrease in performance so unless you're dead set on it I wouldn't bother.

    Vinyl wrapping is a good option as it's reversible aswell so good for re-sale..

    yea i know custom paint jobs r a killer but anyways i started on the car i changed the rear tail lights to leds ordered some smoked front and side indicators so i gotta put those on too. about the paint job i figured it would be much cheaper to go to a scrap yard and pick up the parts i need in the color i want (im thinking black bonnet, roof, and boot on my silver) il post the before and after once its all done! thanks a lot guys

    wow that looks really good i'm looking to get angel eyes on my bmw found some really good ones on ebay but theres so many choices to make when it comes to changes to the body...i found a really good deal on an m-sport body kit as well on ebay and its abs plastic (comes painted to your specifications for a total of ~400) but i might either do the vinyl wrap in carbon fiber or a black vinyl wrap for the hood, bonnet, and boot (in case the next buyer doesnt like the idea of different colored body parts)
