My car is going in on monday to have the hood,front and rear hartge pieces and rear tails tinted.... now should I have them paint the entire hood white and obviously leave the vents CF or should I paint both sides white and leave the center CF "V" shaped... im leaning towards painting it all white similar to M5_Ranger's car but my friend said to do it like his M3 and leave middle CF...


pics of an 3 Series with 1/2 painted hood....

I personally am going with the whole thing painted other than the vents. That is a pretty cool color scheme though on the M3. Maybe someone could photochop it for you.

Yeah, the "V' painting scenario takes the class out of your ride. I would paint the whole hood and leave the vents uncolored. Up top is an e46 with ///M3 body kit; don't think it's an ///M3

BD 997 hey buddy I recommend you paint the whole hood and leave the vents in the clearcoat CF.
The car has too much luxury. The vents were made smaller because Vorsteiner wanted to keep the hood understated.
Post pics when it's done. It will be beautiful.

White hood with the vents painted black....then paint your roof black, add some black wheels and then you will be all set.

The carbon inserts will look great against the white, just how M5Ranger's car is. I have considered the hood also, then painting the carbon inserts metallic black.

I would say to keep it clean and paint everything except the vents.
