    Here are some older pics of my 02 330i. Thinking of taking off the DTM spoiler, im not sure it flows well, and from certian angles looks like a shopping cart handle. :dunno:

    What does OT think? Be brutal. :bigthumb:

    *Edit, some things have changed. Has TSE III exhaust now among other things.

    I hate it, sorry. BMWs are not meant to be riced out.

    I have a 04 330ci with the performance package.

    A similar looking bimmer pulled up next to me yesterday except he also had ///M badges all over the car and above his 325 badge. As a huge bimmer enthusiast cars like these make me cry. German cars should scream "classy" and not "ricey"

    Just to let everyone know, everything thats on the car is made by DTM, a german company. So while I understand the rice comments, I wouldnt call it 'rice' by definition. I dunno, I just wanted a more radical look than what a stock 330 has, and this was what I went for. Like I said, the spoilers will probably come off, but I feel like somthing should be there.

    So minus the DTM stuff, and make a switch over to amber/silver coated blinkers, and does rice still come to mind?

    No I dont want to ghetto bling my car out, I just dont like the vanilla look of a stock 3 series. I personally dont care what others think over what I think of my own ride. I am just feeling like the spoilers are a bit too much, and what you guys are saying reflects that.

    OP I like your car. My first thought was Hamman. The side skirts aren't Hamman?

    That thing is hideous. Get rid of the wings and get new wheels without the lip.

    And is that a LTW wing/replica? I've seen a few of those on e36's.

    If I had an e46 you're car would be my inspiration :)

    Thank god it's not as prominent, probably due to the higher cost of the vehicles.

    That's nowhere close to the lightweight wing, I suppose you're talking about the e36.

    It looks very close to the e36 LTW wing.

    Well here is what im struggling with. I outfitted my car with what you see when I was 17-18, and the style shows, its what a teen would put on a car. I just reciently turned 20, and I really am realizing that this car could be so much classier. So I am trying to find a new look for it, without killing my pocketbook.

    Dude, just clean it up. Wings don't belong on BMWs unless it's a dedicated race car. Get one of these strip type spoilers, similar to what came on my car, it'll add character to the rear. Get rid of the eyelids and maybe get a Mtec front like on the performance packaged cars. Sell the wheels and get something a little more classy.

    Any suggestions for 'classy' wheels? I like the double 5 star configuration, but I have always been partial to the Y spoke styles.
