    I bought a BMW from a quite dodgy garage, after spending about 1300 fixing a 700 pound car. I decided I need to make it look good.

    I'm not after a MSport copy, or anything along those lines I just want to get it looking evil as hell, first thing I've Done is buy a full set of xenons that are in the post as we speak, and next I'm painting the standard wheels black as they are beautiful. What other cheap, cheerful mods can I get onto
    This car to really make some corsa's self conscious.

    Kidney grills black, wing mirrors possibly black, new wheel centres and some alloy BMW dust caps are all on the cards too.

    Any good ideas will be noted and updated on the OP and photos will be poste of any decent ideas, if anyone is trying to get rid of any parts That may help PM me too!

    Thanks guys in advance!

    Josh

    Matt black paint work. You can do it on the cheap with spray cans and will make the car look really moody! Limo tints on the back and tint the rear lights.

    How do I go about spraying the car myself? Does it get damaged easily?

    If you have to ask then don't even bother trying! Some nice wheels and some lowerage completely transforms a car imo. Do this first!
