    well guys, as the title says, i'm thinking of painting my car 2 tone. So my idea is to paint the bumpers and lower parts silver. But id like to here your opinions on this. Also if anyone can shop this for me id be very happy

    i'd recommend not doing it

    if you want real two tone.. what about the painting that changes colour as you change angle.
    not sure if there's one in UK but i'm sure i've seen a truck at random show, red/blue at different angles.
    what about that

    personally I think that would look hurrendous.. you'd certainly turn heads but it'd be for the wrong reasons!

    I agree with the others would look abit chavtastic imo. Yours looks a nice colour as it is and see in your project thread its had some if it resprayed recently so the paint should be in good condition as well.

    The paint is mostly in good condition mate. Only the hood is looking f..ked up. Someone threw paint remover over it a couple of weeks ago. Lol i think i have a lot of jealous people in my street .

    However the car is in need of a respray because of all the dents and scratches that are on it. So thats the reason i was thinking of the 2 tone paint. I'm in the proces of building a democar vor my company, so the respray of the bimmer will prob. be next year. But i can always ask opinions
