I did the ACS package on my car I have a 2011 F10 M Sport the rear spoiler on the deck lid is the same but the front spoiler and rear defuser are different for the M Sport than the non M. Its difficult to find a pic.

Do you have the whole ACS kit with the lowering springs? You 550i looks like it sits higher than mine which is on RD springs. Next time, I'm going to try ACS lowering springs since my fronts are still a little low for me.

From the looks of those pictures I doubt it's lowered at all.

I like the rear spoiler - the lower edge conforms to the body line on the trunk lid and looks like it belongs there

How does it attach?

Why do aftermarket manufacturers feel compelled to plaster their badge - in this case ACS on every piece of hardware. Thats 3 badges on this install - way too much in my opinion

No those are the stock springs with the X drive there is a lot going on and i didnt want to mess too much with it. The 20" rims seam to fill the wheel wells pretty well and the width of the fronts could rub if lowered so no plans on doing that.

I agree but there is an indent for the logo adhesive sticker to be applied and unless you're gonna use filler it looks better with than with out. IMP.

I wanted too but i dont think you can on the stock exhaust. I thought the same thing. If anyone knows differently please inform me on how to extend the stock tips. Thanks.

I suppose thats an option - fill it as part of paint prep, thanks for the clarification

Copy that, it looks perfect and flows right with the rear lines.

You need to throw ACS springs on it. I have 20" with no rub, you have nothing to worry about and it would complete your look. Even with your lip you won't rub, you just need to watch parking curbs. I am NJ and was worried about snow that's why I did springs eventhough I would have liked it lower.
