Custom Modified BMW F10 530d + 535i - Alpine White

After seeing so many beautiful F10's in Alpine White, I decided to get one myself. But since I wanted something else than "everyone else", i afterfitted the "White Line" backlights. Unfortunatly, they didn't go so well with the reflecses in the back, so we had to go trough with some more drastic changes:

Love your car as well! I have tinted the windows after these pictures were taken, so good taste!

But do you have Night Vision? If not, why don't you get the black highgloss kidneys?

The exhaust pipes are the original from 550i M-Sport (therefore satin chrome). But it caused a bit of problems, due to the luggage floor is different on BMW 530d / 550i. We therefore had to change many extra parts, but luckily to a not so high price...

I include to low-quality photoes so that you can see where we placed the exhaust system

hm - i'm sorry, i'm quite new on this forum, and I don't know where to change these settings.

But anyhow:
The exhaust pipe is approximetly €600 X 2. Then you need the rear spoiler, maybe €150. The afterfitting costed only €500.

But the extra parts that I needed due to the difference between 550i/530d was roundabout €600.

I'm actually not sure how much only the front convertion costed, due to the fact that I did the full convertion at once.

But I changed the front bumper, the fog lights and grills. Not too sure about the vents, but this I can check next week, as I'm having yet another convertion

Edit: After a call with my mechanic, I found out that all front vents are changes, but not the aluminium crash-bar behind the front bumper.

NB! In BMW's system it also is written that you have to change the plastic panels beneeth the car. We oredered theses, but they didn't fit. After quite some calls we tried as final solution the original panels, which fitted perfectly. So don't order too much!

What colour is the interior of this car?

I can not decide between Oyster or Veneto beige. And the colourcoded pillars and headliner confuses me. How is this accomplished?

Can anyone help?

OMG

My GOD is all I can say. I have to admit I was a hater of the white out tail lights but now I am speechless!! Is this how it comes from the factory or did you alter them somehow??? I don't remember seeing the reddish hue in the bottom section before

I would be interested in the M kit as well since mine I ordered before the M kit was even available to order (April build 2010) so I will be checking to see how much your front cost. I personally don't fancy the rear M bumper, I don't think it's too different from the original one and the reflectors pulled up is just

Congrats on a wonderful ride!
