2013 550 is finally finished

Took a few extra months for everything to come together, but here it is:
Wheels: HRE P43S
Exhaust: Meisterschaft via GTHAUS
Painted Reflectors: **********s.com
Dinan Stage 3
Custom Painted Grill
BMW Logo valve caps

I think that's about it, let me know if anyone has any questions. I'm going to take it to an AWD dyno at some point soon and will post the results of that.

looks good some suggestion...
1-smoke the taillights (light)
2-gloss black mirror caps
3-gloss black fender signals,door handles
4-get rid of the blue accents on the wheels (not easy but just saying)

i guess these will complete the car althought it looks good as is now..

thanks..

I was thinking about dropping it, but I live in CO so it wouldn't be in my best interest.

Ya I had them, I just feel like the pinstripe on the wheels won't look as good without the matching color center caps.

How dirty do your calipers get from normal driving? I'm thinking about getting mine powdercoated AW on my M6, but I feel like they will just be a full time job to keep clean.

I haven't had them painted too long, but I'm in CO and the weather hasn't been great, but I haven't noticed them really being that dirty at all.

I was thinking about it, happy with the white right now, even though it's not completely on with the car's white. The problem is I think it's hard to paint match with caliper paint, I'll look more into the blue after the winter.

How did you get those BMW center caps to fit, did they fit or did you modify them somehow, trying to get them to fit my BBS wheels but they dont, any suggestions?

It's not the prettiest solution, but I bought stickers that fit one of my HRE center cap sets and super glued them on.
