Where are you guys getting your paint for the calipers and rims?
Use Dupli-Color. Its probably the best you can get without going professional

Hey that looks like my blacked out twin^^^^^
What % tint is that? Thats next on my list and I need ideas on what I want since ive never had a car tinted
Haha nice. Next for me (hopefully) is lowering, SRI, and exhaust.

My tint is 15% but i wish I got a little bit darker. I mean, it works well, but I guess having an all black car with black interior, it doesn't seem like it's that dark.

lol I know that feeling. I used to have 5%, got really used to it, and got pulled over after close to a year and had to change it to 15%. Just stick with it lol night driving was really hard to get used to with the 5.

Anyway, I like black on black, paint the calipers! Gold or red I think.

Well everyone has red calipers so I think I'm going with the gold. Maybe once i make my 'evil M', I'll either paint that black or gold to do a little accenting on the car. Decisions decisions
