So I have the red trim 630i but I am considering painting it to something more unique
and special..
Maybe purple or just black :D :D :D?????

I'm not a big fan of red as its a hot color and I just straight up hate it.. =/
but purple is sexy, especially with some purple LED fans :D
I personally think the black trim with purple fans would be the best route.

Let me know what you guys think...

Not 100% sure yet...
All I know so far is getting some 1,000 grit sandpaper and going at it.

Not sure what kind of paint I'll be using.
I DO know that it WONT be any type of glossy paint.

Maybe powdercoat it or just use some flat black spray paint.


I need to ask my girfriend, she does collision repair and paints vehicles :P



I'll post more as I find out :D

There was a full set of black trim on ebay that sold for like $30 or something.

But it shouldn't be to hard to paint. Remove, sand, paint, clear coat.
