Thanks bro! Exactly what i was going for simple and classy :-) Only thing i might want to change is coilovers to get rid of the small gap I have in the rear.

Hey what is the best way to remove the oem orange bumper reflectors ?

Boardman this really is a very simple install. I followed the instructions snowball007 left on this thread to the T!

http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=446611

Really just a simple 3 screws to remove, tug a little at the fender lining enough to squeez you hand through to catch the reflector when it comes off. Snowball has good pics so should be easy to follow. Good luck with your install.

Looks great. Thanks for bringing it in and allowing us to be a part of the project. Can't wait to see what may be next.

We have 2 M5 stock exhaust systems here from F10 M5 upgrades. I hear guys with the 535i are retrofitting this exhaust to the 535i.

Hey Joe! Cant say enough good things about your shop and the crew. It's been a pleasure dealing with you and Logan. So yes I have a long list of wants still.

- Exhaust and new diffuser
- front lip
- some sort of tune... jb4 or Dinan if they ever release anything for the 535
- maybe coil-overs

I will have to look into the M5 exhaust modification and get back to you.

Thanks John! Removing the 535 badge... very easy mod buddy! I used a hair dryer to slightly heat up the emblem and get the adhesive soft. I did pour some goo gone in between the emblems and the paint and let is soak for a few minutes. Next i just used dental floss to pull off the badge. Came off with just a little effort. There was a little residue left behind from the adhesive but I took a little more goo gone to it and it came off super easy. Then for precaution i just applied a little wax to the are just in case I stripped it off with the goo gone. Once I finished it looked as it came that way from the factory. No scratches at all. And in my opinion a much cleaner look!

I live in the suburb where the roads are good. Have no issues with ride quality in my area. This was my first time being in the city with the 21s on. Was super nervous and paranoid. Drove super slow most of the time and avoided all crazy pot holes. Overall it wasn't too bad. Changed my setting to comfort+ to get a little better ride. Was happy to get home with no bends that i know of

Stunning. You gave me the courage to remove my 535 badge.

And the ride height looks great, no need for coilovers.
I actually like the little rake. It enhances the concave look.
You have the part# on the springs?

glad i can help. Love the look after removing the badge. Looks so much cleaner! Your car is gonna look mean once you get the drop.

Here is the part # that was on my invoice from the shop. 28947-1 H&R F10. I think thats the right number... but if you want I can take a picture of the box with the part# tomorrow and message it to you so you can be sure.
