Ok im going to respond from the perspective of seeing where your coming from. Not gonna tell you not to do it, but gonna try and help you understand and foresee the positives and negatives before hand, In the end its your car and you can do what you wanna do with it.
What i am getting from your rendering is that you want to make you car a tad bit more aggresive looking at a minimal cost, the design isnt all that special almost a basic wind back graphic,,, what is making it look off is; that style of graphic is not generaly put on a "Family" car that doesnt have an aggresive body kit and/or lowered stance/wheel setup. Although the factory wheels do look more aggresive in black,,, to the M6 community they will still hit our forefront minds eye as "Factory"
If you dont have the funds for a full front rear bumper kit id suggest getting a front lip/rear lip , that will help you get closer to the look that will tie the graphics into your car better.
As for the graphics itself,,,,Lose the two "black twinkies" along the top plain. especially the one on the front door guard, it stands out and catches the eye in a "HUH,, WTH is that thing" manner. It also looks like you have 1 extra line on the rear bumper than you do trailing the doors, Take the extra 1 out.
Blacking out your skirts hood and roof are fine as long as you have it done properly, dont rattle can your hood/roof unless you have done extensive respraying with rattle can. It is a very large and swooping area to try to get an even coat on without prior exp or a few hundred laying around to try again and again till you get it right.
Please Please please dont PD your roof or hood if your not gonna Clear coat it,, you live in michigan and the weather there will destroy a PD hood thats not cleared.What i mean by destroy is that it will fade and discolor it and make it look like your far has ashy knee syndrome on its hood. wheels and side skirts are fine just kepp 1-2 cans in trunk for touch ups.
