BMW_F30_328i_Red_CF_Forgestar_F14_SemiGlossBlack (2) Even if you didn’t get the most upspec model when you bought your BMW, that doesn’t mean your Bimmer has to be bland- case in point this Carbon-and-Melbourne Red F30 BMW 328i. A few changes in some of the smaller details of the car can have a huge effect on the appearance of your car, and this car exemplifies what we mean.BMW_F30_328i_Red_CF_Forgestar_F14_SemiGlossBlack (3) Up front, a set of Carbon Fiber Kidney Grilles for BMW F30 3-Series has been installed to give the nose of the car a more aggressive look than the factory chrome grilles, giving the BMW F30 exterior a more aggressive edge.BMW_F30_328i_Red_CF_Forgestar_F14_SemiGlossBlack (5) Check out the detail of the carbon fiber kidney grilles up front. The outer surrounds are carbon fiber, while the individual slats of the grille are matte black.BMW_F30_328i_Red_CF_Forgestar_F14_SemiGlossBlack (6)One of the other simple details that cleans up the look of this F30 is a set of Painted Front Reflectors for BMW F30, which, as you can see, have been color-matched Melbourne Red like the rest of the car.

The semi-gloss black compliments the car’s carbon fiber accessories and the semi-gloss finish is shiny yet not overly so as a true gloss black wheel can. BMW_F30_328i_Red_CF_Forgestar_F14_SemiGlossBlack (14) Out in the sun, the carbon fiber F30 Exterior mods really “pop” – the sunlight brings out the weave and detail of the carbon fiber – one of the details you might miss otherwise that stands out here are the carbon fiber mirror covers for BMW F30.BMW_F30_328i_Red_CF_Forgestar_F14_SemiGlossBlack (18)These mirror covers replace the factory mirror covers and are an ideal way to tie together carbon fiber exterior mods like you see here.
