1st photo session

Got out of work a little early and went to the car wash as my car is already covered in salt from the Connecticut roads. Here are some pics.

nal - looks great! I'm in fairfield county, as well - I was wondering if the euro front plate is actually legal or are you just chancing it? I moved to CT about 6 years ago from NY... I thought they had changed the law to now require a front plate?

You're correct that ct requires front and rear plates but the state is lax on the law. I had a euro plate on my last car and I was never ticketed for it. I was even pulled over for speeding and the cop let me off with a warning and commented on my car and the European plate.

My wife thinks the plates are cheesy but for $60 I think its one of the coolest aesthetic things that can be done to a European car

Euro tag looks right at home on F10. Car is a beauty. Is that carbon black?

So far have the black kidney grills and the Euro plate
Tints to be done this upcoming week
I am shopping now for a carbon fiber rear spoiler and will also be looking for carbon fiber side mirrors.
I did do some performance mods to my last car but it was owned and this car is leased so I'm a little resistant to do anything to the ECU or add expensive high end after market parts but that could change.

Congrats NAL. It's purrrty. The OEM rims look great on Carbon Black They actually look slightly larger than 19's and the dish looks deeper.

My all time favorite BMW color looks beautiful on your m-Sport! Thanks for the interior shots too, most people only do the exterior but it's great to see the interior combinations too.
