A little extra M-touch

Painted the above bumper grille with M colors and slant. Easy to do but not sure now that I really like it. Comments? Opinions?

Nice, any other mods planned to go with the grill?

No offense but not feeling the M stripes as they draw unnecessary attention to the grills. When I saw the colors, I though vandalism rather than the M stripes...

As I said - not sure I like it now that it's done. Easily fixed though.

Thanks for comments - opinions.

It looks different and interesting but also looks like someone put it there to vandalize your car
I'd rather do the ///M colors on three vertical bars of the kidney grill

Mate you don't have an M nor an M-Pack. Why would you even bother doing it? Why not stick a Ferrari badge on it?

not bad, i think it would look good on a black car with mods, it looks awkward on oem, maybe with some black grills?
edit: just noticed it wasnt an m, not feeling it

i'd lose the stripes. get some black kindeys and black out all the mesh up front and it will look good.
