Visual mods completed!

I've had mostly black cars for the last 20 years, aside from a silver and dark gray, so white is different for me. I think the power level and stance is fine for a daily driver, so I don't plan on really doing anything else at this point.

So far I have added
BMW black grill
IND black mirror caps
powdercoated the wheels gloss black (by me)
powdercoated the calipers a bright green (me also)
window tint

I just had the following completed at Autoglo, in Tucker GA. They have done a ton of work for me, including 2 full repaints and I think they are the best shop in Georgia.
Roof Gloss black
M Diffuser Gloss black
taillights and reflectors lightly tinted.

M diffusor gets a bit lost in the single colour. Was thinking of going gloss black myself but that has kind of made my mind up. May just be a poor photo.

It is a poor photo, its really hard to photograph it because its in the shade. It looks much better in person.

Are the black mirror caps gloss black? Do they match the black on the bottom of the mirror?

Mike, how much do you charge for a job similar to what you did with your brake calipers on the 2? You can PM me.
