What's your take?

(BTW, I know the owner and the "artist"... and yes, they are both at least 1/2 my age!)

While it's not to my tastes, I can still appreciate it. If I had an artist and a spare Hellrot hood & hatch, I'd have him do it up.

Once it's finished, it'll be worthy of being a "BMW Art Car."

Come on! Where's your sense of adventure??? Sharpies might not show up well on your ti, BUT a "White-Out" or "Liquid Paper" mod could be the "next thing"!

I think it looks good, but if they used a Sharpie, they are not too bright.

I would use a paint pen and then clear coat that.

I think this would be cool with some color combination like light blue on dark blue or yellow on red or something.

I guess my point is - if you are going to put in the time...

I bet that silver metallic is expensive and less forgiving, though.

There was a lambo featured on Supercars Exposed a while back that had the complete car done like that. I'm assuming that on any of these, as soon as the sharpie ink dries, its off to the paint shop to receive a clear coat.

I think the sharpie mod on this E46 looks great.



http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum....php?t=1200832

I think the E36 is tacky just like his tails and spray canned wheels
