Not sure, we were looking into doing the Brembo BBK. But the Brembo kit disables the rear e-brake function since it is a caliper based system. So I don't really want to have a 405mm front disc with a small stock rear, just won't look right. If we can figure something out, BBK was high on the list.

Maybe mid pipes or downpipes, the Dinan intake once it becomes available.

Another recent shot.

^What about incorporating M5 Front/Rear BBK? I'm not sure if the rears are any bigger, but you can always do the Brembo BBK in the front and the M5 BBK in the rear.

The rear caliper on the M5 is a large single piston that also incorporates the electronic e-brake setup. We will figure something out, I'd like to have 4 matching if possible.

Quick update. We added the front M5 sway bar and the Dinan EDC Shockware to further enhance the suspension setup. Car feels very planeted and ride quality is amazing for how low the car is. Hardwired a V1 also.

We finally sourced the OEM Performance Splitter...that will go on this week. I will have my Vorsteiner front splitter up for sale soon if anyone wants it. BMW LED interior lights going in as well.

Stay tuned for more pics.

Get those sick HRE wheels blacked out! Car looks amazing so far, but black wheels would bring it all together.

I like the brush tinted clear coat, it has a classic look that compliments the car.

Plus, I just feel like black wheels are played out these days.

That looks nice. How slow do you have go when going into the drive way? Does it scrape easily?

It will scrape on steep driveways if I am not careful. But it isn't as low as the Vorsteiner previously installed.

Hey Joe, when are you guys doing the same on F10 535's. Been waiting for a very long time about 2 years this summer and been told a few times that very soon Dinan will have same for 535s. You honest answer is very much appreciated.
Thanks,
Gent

Joe this is easily the most beautiful F10 build that I've ever had the pleasure to set my eyes on. I must say your build inspires me to incorporate a few things into my build that you've shown to come together very well. I'm really feeling the Vorsteiner rear diffuser with the Dinan Exhaust. Sorry dude what is a guy to do....

Wish I had a shop within 300 miles of me that could do what your doing there in NO Cal.

Took a few quick pics after leaving work last night. After almost a year and 8000 miles, our F10 has come along nicely.

Recently installed the P3Cars vent gauge and patiently waiting for more Dinan upgrades, including their intake system and Stage 5 software.

Stay tuned...
