id give the m3 mirrors a miss tbh, especially in carbon fibre look a bit ****,

and defo smoke the lights, looks miles better, tinting spray from halfrauds only bout a 10er,

and possibly some cheap springs say about 80 quid.

debadge, destrip, dewiper... all can be done for 20p

CC the bits yourself, so paint it only £7 a tin and 2/3 will be needed,

then smoked rear lights, £30-£50

Sri/Sxi/Design skirts £40

Then eyebows and it will look ok

thanks cleario.

so you cant spray tint the windows??? at all?
lol
holy, never do that, never spray glass as it will be stupid, look bad, ruin the windows n wont stay on either:

go cheap and buy cheap tint film from ebay or halfords or sumthing and do it yourself for like - 20 quid

or go to garage and let them do a prober great job for round 100 - 150 quid.
