XDEEDUBBX 's Very Slow Build Thread

Hey guys, well here goes my very slow build thread. Don't expect many great things either lol. I will update this every time I execute a mod. I'm a fan of DIY mods so you will typically see more of those with my build. I purchased my car in Sept 2011.

The day I picked it up from the Stealership. Its a 2011 535i, sports package, and nav:





And here goes my first round of DIY mods. I had some spare carbon fiber vinyl laying around so I put it to good use:





This one came out kinda shabby but oh well:



And I plasti dipped my grills, came out pretty good IMO:





Thats it for now. I ordered some wheels a couple weeks ago so I'm hoping they come in before Xmas LOL!

Nothing special, I was thinking about making my own set of vortex generators then spraying the center part black. Still deciding on what to use..

I did some work on it again yesterday, got better results this time around but still wasn't happy with the way it came out. I will be ordering some matte /flat black vinyl and just go that route.




don't mind the junk in the garage lol, in the process of clearing it out lol

Next week I plan on taking it to get tinted!

No not yet, maybe on Friday if I have time I'll get it done.

Here's a pic from the tint shop. Went with limo tint. Love the blacked out look! I'll take pix of it tomorrow after a wash and detail.
