Thank you, it's just a 2006+ Facelift Bumper

I repainted it myself. Old paint had to be redone due to bad rock chips and clear peeling off. I couldn't get desirable results with spray can application. If someday I find an M bumper, I'll have that painted professionally.

It's usually black, which is why you may not have noticed it on yours.

can you post pictures in brighter lighting. I always wanted to do eyelids but was never quite sure how it would look. It looks really great in the pictures above. The lighting makes it look like the headlights are actually that shape.

The "break line" is not pronounced at all. I am planning to add two or three layers of headlight film tint to add a little bit of "thickness" to the eyelid. I feel that if it's thick enough to cast a little shadow, it would look more like an actual eyelid sitting on top of the headlight.

Headlights off, Masked and Painted. It's irreversible though, so be extra careful!

I had some down time after work today so I decided to try different colors on my roadster.
I'm thinking of getting her wrapped. The body and paint has many imperfections that I've been tolerating but can not stand.

1. BMW Calypso Red on Plated Gold
2. BMW Hell Red on White Pearl Metallic
3. BMW Laguna Green on Bright Silver Metallic
4. Toyota/Lexus Blizzard Pearl White on Gold Metallic
5. Toyota/Lexus Blizzard Pearl White on Teal Metallic
6. Honda North Shore Blue Metallic on Bright Silver Metallic
7. Lexus UltraSonic Blue Mica Metallic on Gloss White

1.


2.


3.


4.


5.


6.


7.




And then I decided to try on dubsesd's Morr MS52 ONE wheels.
Sorry man, just borrowing for experimenting purposes





My interior color is Dream Red so I think that adds to the risk of colors clashing. What do you guys think?
