Titanium Silver On Venetian Beige - Yay Or Nay?

what sort of cosmetic modifications should I do? currently have tinted windows, custom 3 inch dual tips and I debadged the 528i logo off the rear. I am thinking of adding a black diffuser at the bottom and a carbon fibre lip on the rear. will this go with the chrome around the car? I like the chrome around my car with the silver paint and my new rims and particular so I would prefer to keep the chrome.

First thing first, lets get rid of that orange reflector: https://ind-distribution.com/product?sku=IND-F10-FREF

Second, it all depends on what kind of car you want. If you like the chrome and silver. My personally opinion is that Black/CF will not go with the car. For you, I'd recommend getting a front lip and diffuserbut get it painted to make the car color.

Your interior is not Venetian beige. It's oyster. For PRE LCI cars Venetian beige always had beige carpets

Do you think you could show me some pics of the exhaust tips. Pm or post. Also any difference in sound or just cosmetics.

I would add a painted 3d style lip to the front. Get rid of the orange reflector and get a matched painted one from IND or even from our site sponsor JSpeed. Since the wheels match the chrome grill no need to upgrade that unless you want the double slat grills that would be a nice upgrade.



Here's the Hamman front spoiler which I've seen in both carbon fiber or painted


Here's the double slat. You can separate them so if you want keep the chrome ring and swap in the double slats

Remember you have a base model rear bumper so either paint the OEM diffuser black or have it replaced which would require some cutting and install a Hamman style diffuser.



I don't know if you have a spoiler already but if you don't a 3D spoiler to match the front or a M5 spoiler if you want a subtle look



There's so many things you can do but it all depends on what you like and what look you're going after from mild look to an aggressive look.

here is a pic I found. I actually deleted my secondary cats and upgraded the muffler to a magnaflow. the muffler shop welded on custom tips seen in the pic. new exhuast tips on your current muffler would make a very small difference.. your best bet is to get a downpipe and tune.
