My F10 550i Msport CarbonBlack: ACS springs and exhaust, Shadowline Grilles

March 2011 Build. April 8, 2011 delivery.

Posting pics done by myself (so not professional) of my 550i Msport. Signature has mods. Thanks all for the help over the last year plus, off of it assisted me in making the decisions I did.

The ACS suspension is fantastic and really gives the "grounded" feel back to the relationship between road>tires>steering>hands and I suppose if BMW had used this sort of suspension to begin with much of the "feedback" criticism would be solved.

After driving 4k miles on my first F10 then another 2k or so on this one, the ACS exhaust takes some getting used to. It definitely fits the power in the car and has a great tone. Its nice to hear the acceleration. I always thought the car was too quiet prior. I prefer the tips over others but that's strictly personal taste.

I would like to see how the Hartge ECU turns out when they finish their testing, other then that, I couldn't be happier!

Interior is outstanding. Cannot scratch it and really fits well inside the cabin. My 1st F10 had the dark wood and it scratched really easily, plus with the more aggressive stance of my options and mods I thought it looks more fitting.

Through my employer I am able to buy US spec (more importantly US priced) BMW's and take delivery locally here where I live (or in Munich).

Wow Delvek, that is most definitely the ultimate uber Bimmer!

Glad you like the ACS suspension as well.

Awesome, love your car, and the subtle mods. Is your decklid spoiler an OEM painted black/non carbon fibre version? If so, do you know what the part number is?

Thanks. I really wanted just the subtle changes and its why your exactly right on the spoiler, it is an OEM non carbon fiber spoiler that was color matched, just to give the rear deck that upper lip. I will speak with the dealer here and get the part number and post.

Can you please take some pictures after about a week or so. I'd like to see if the springs settle a little bit.

Also do you have Nappa leather? If so, how do you like it?

I will post some follow pics in a week or so for sure. Dont have nappa leather, between kids and car seats, I have read the nappa leather is very nice but a little less forgiving.

Thanks Grim! I will take the "small" part to be a complement since in general the complaint is the F10 is too big.
