    I like the smooth look and looks a great job but my bmw in my mind looks so much beta with the side/bumper moldings on dont think it would look right with them off and filled in....

    When i wash my car i always go over the car with ice polish and the molding's and anything other than the glass and they always look like new and never go dull

    I could never get them to stay black but for a few days at a time, this was in Cali though where the sun is out allllllllllllllllllllll day

    [edit] Absolutely sh*t with photoshop so i couldn't be fuc*ed with doing the rear bumper. I'm sure someone could do a better job, but you get the idea anyways.

    You could always colour code your side/bumper trims like I did..

    Saves you migging/filling the car









    In my opinion looks good on dark coloured cars

    I still have about half the thread left on my KW's i might try to go lower but my tyres are wayyyy up in my wheel wells already, i had to mess with the damper and make them nice and stiff to avoid bottoming out

    Sham, that's a very good idea. I thought of doing that as well, but I like the smoothness. It suits your car though I must say.

    Thanks i do like the ride hight on the car other than need to drop the front more but will sort that when i change to coilovers

    You cant see the tyre on my rears and you cant even put a finger up in the arch its that close and i can still take to adults in the back and not rub and it still is a not bad ride not ruff really but maybe im just used to it now someone else might not think so if they drove it
