Looks very nice. Like.
I'm curious what the 5 stickers are on the passenger side of the windshield? Parking passes? Event pass souveniers? Toll road pass?
Curious minds want to know.

Very nice. The black grill and wheels compliments the car real well.

the stickers are for parking

I'm quite hesitant on lowering the car because I am scraping already on some of the slopes where I usually go in and out of, and I'll have problems with tints where I am

The calipers I still can't figure out as I think it will look weird with front brakes only, I would hate to do the front and paint the back. Do brembo have a set which does not interfere?

I love the wheels in black!
Red + Black makes the car look a lot more aggressive

As for the brakes, I've tried asking for 6 piston Brembos with red calipers in front and 4 piston at the back, and it costs around HK$50000, maybe too expensive just for the looks

Think I would go with 3D kit first if calipers are 50k maybe it's cheaper to order online?
Last time I checked the 6 pot was 20k hkd

Mine's Crimson Red though I like the new metallic red that BMW has. The flat paint is a Bi$tch to maintain....

Good Taste! Great minds think alike haha!
I've actually also asked for a price quote from 3D design's HK retailer, the front lip is 14k, while the diffuser is 10k.
I've been thinking about getting the front lip, diffuser and the quad exhaust, but again the whole thing adds up to 50k, sigh....

I'd love to see an E89 with 3D design M sport front lip in Hong Kong, especially a 35is!

Love everything you've done.....now peel all but one of those parking stickers off the windshield! I'm guessing you only need one (I hope!)
