Lacster's F10 build from past to present and more to come
I've decided to create a new thread showing everyone what my F10 has gone through in the last couple years.
I purchased the car from a good friend of mine Yi-Wen Ting @ Shelly BMW back on June 2010 but the F10 was not what I had in mind at the time.
I was in the market for a 2010 E60 Msport but after a little persuading from Yi-Wen I ended up driving home with this beautiful F10. Thanks again Yi-Wen
Okay on to the modding!!!!
The first few things done back in July 2010
* OEM Performance grills
* OEM Performance carbon fiber spoiler
* LTBMW painted reflectors
* Debaged emblems
* Nutek 20" Classic 304 brushed center / chrome lips
* Royal Muffler's custom quad conversion muffler
* RD sport lowering springs
Here's some pics with the RD's springs and Performance grills
Phase one complete
Off to Royal Mufflers for a custom quad conversion in August 2010

After SEMA I changed up the wheels with some Vossen VVS CV2's
Sold the Vossen shortly afterwards for some 21" iforged Legacy Concaves
Here's my temp setup while my wheels were being made

On to 2011 and Bimmerfest with the great guys over at MORR Competition Wheels Show casing their new 20" light weight VS8.2's
After some unexpected damages to the front lip I decided to mold it on which last a month before the mod bug hit again.

Removed the carbon fiber wrap and had it redone by LTBMW in gloss black.
It's time to bring sexy back with the 21" MORR MS08.C brushed centers / chrome step lips.
Phase 4 complete.
* OEM M Sport bumper with molded 3D Design lip
