First post, pics of my BMW 116D Alpine White

Hi all, this is my first post here. Really like this forum!

I'm driving a dutch BMW 116 D since 3 months. Total km so far: 14000, no problems with the car until now, totally happy with it.

Specs:

116D
Alpine White
Business Edition (nav, xenon, PDC, Cruise control)
Privacy Glass
Standard wheels 16" sport line 376 (no budget for bigger ones)

Made some adjustments myself:

Removed the 116d logo
Painted the chrome bezel of the grill black with plasti dip
Paited the wheels black with plasti dip
Installed a tomtom iphone carkit on a mount

About the plasti dip wheels and grill: I thought about doing this for a very long time, and last week I said to myself what the heck I just give it a try...Ordered 4 cans of plasti dip (75 euros) and just did it! It was a 2 hour job, I left the wheels on the car.

I'm pleased with the result, what do you all think?

It looks great with the black wheels

If you want to really show it off, get the AC Schnitzer rear spoiler and decal kit for it.

The AC kit looks fantastic on a white F20 with black wheels

I know...had to make choices and there was no budget left for 17" or 18"...
But I think in black they look better than the standard 16"!

I have kind of odd taste, but I think that car would look great with whitewall tires.

Looks great!

I know exactly what you mean regarding the wheels. When there is no budget left you have to make choices
