West Coast Customs Makes BMW i3 And i8 Duo Look Like Spaceships

If you want to make a car stand out, you head to West Coast Customs, the tuning shop made famous by Pimp My Ride.

Recently, the customizer was handed the keys to both a BMW i8 and a BMW i3 and set about modifying them so they almost perfectly match and really stand out on the road.

The most obvious point of difference between the duo and a regular i3 or i8 are the satin blue chrome wraps adorning both. That eye-catching color has then been complemented by a set of curved, chrome Lexani Wheels, bright enough to make the hybrid BMWs look like they’ve been pulled off the set of a sci-fi film.

Alongside the chrome wheels, both cars feature some small chrome accents around the kidney grilles and badges.

    Not sure how much you were paid to write this, but what they’ve done to these cars will def mean enthusiasts will stay away from WCC.
    I could replicate what they did, although I have better taste so, NO.

    Not so much space ship. But defiantly better then all the neon blue on the stock cars. They look more like real cars then playschool toys.
