If someone from BMW is listening, please make whitelines available for the E92.

Great looking car IMO the only thing that kills it is the ugly stock calipers. If you had some red brembo's in there that thing would look prime! Maybe paint them gloss black in the mean time.

Its got potential Not big on LMs myself...But I definitely think 15 mm spacers allround would make a night and day difference ! trust me on that. And God I love thw whitelines!

That stance is perfect. From your experience thus far, what are you comments/concerns with the coilovers vs stock suspension on the f10? I'm very curious how it is on a larger, more luxurious car in comparison to the e92. Thanks!

That is an incredibly beautiful F10. You made great choices. As an architect I care a lot about the aesthetics of the F10. I really like the white lines taillights on this F10. They work well to make the taillights recall the look of the headlights and simplify the overall pure aesthetic. De-badging works well with this look.

It looks like the blinker surrounds near each of the front wheels were changed. How did you do that?

Yes James is on a totally different level I don't want to be near. He no longer has that mini too he's back to the raw e46 m3 at the moment and who knows what is in store for that car!

That's correct we rolled up together from the attic, our intern was with us in the black 335is. His car is now on dbk lm's we've rubbed off some of our modding bug onto him recently

To be honest the kw v3 is one of the best mods I've done to the car at the moment. The suspension feels tighter yet has a very daily driveable feel. With the m sport package I had 4 suspension settings to choose from. Even at the sport + setting it was definitely sportier but felt great. But admit I had slight concerns with installing the kw v3 until I first drive out of the shop with them. Joe at trinity autosport set them at the recommended Out of the box specs and I love it.

I always drove my car in the sport+ setting and the kws are slightly firmer than that but completely streetable. As for the e92 I can't say as I've only driven stock m3s and rd sport lowered e90s. But those were around the suspension feeling I haven my car now.

I'll be tracking my car in September for industry track day so I can give a better review then after I see how they feel when the car is really pushed.

Thank you for the compliment, I feel the same way about the f10 as you do. There were a couple parts about the car that felt like they took away from the lines of this model. Aesthetically the stock chrome grilles were distracting and looked as though they distracted from the hood and front bumper. Same with the rear taillights and the gobs of red.

As for the the blinker surrounds I'm not quite sure what you mean. Are you referring to the orange reflectors? I had my window tinting shop wrap it in gloss black vinyl, and ended up matching close to the jet black paint job.

Saw your car at the 85 Degree Bakery in Irvine, Ca. CAR WAS UNBELIEVABLE IN Person. Your car made me fall in love with the new 5. It like that hot girl at school, that you didn't realize was hot until you looked at her a second time. I think that's gonna be my next ride. WL tails are so sweet on black. Couldn't really see it on any other color besides black or grey.

Dammit, jaekeem. I'd been convincing myself that I could leave the M-sport alone and it looked great as it is. Now I'm gonnna have to go drop more hard-earned $$$ to mod it up.

Freaking gorgeous car.

Oh really? I'm there a couple times a month getting bread or a drink. The line at 85c is just ridiculous! Thanks for the compliment I appreciate it. It's a great car, definitely not the fastest car but that's not the purpose of a 5 series.

Maybe true but I think they look good! There are lines on these taillights that you can only see in person that just help set off the body lines of the car. Hard to explain because you can barely see the contours even in photos with the red tail lamps.

I believe they do not but I think they would look great on the 3 series as well.

Thanks Bavarian, the m-sport is awesome the way it is though. it's just the molding bug is addicting and I'm having a hard time stopping. I keep wanting to see what I can do next

Brembo 405mm GT brake upgrade

I want to thank everyone at European Auto Source for helping me source and install the KW coilovers modules to properly use my Sport modes, and the Brembo 16" (405mm) Gran Tursimo brakes.

After 6 months of ownership and 12,900 miles later, my daily commuter has been serving me well. I also went to my first track event at Chuckwalla Raceway on Saturday, all I have to say is that it was ridiculously fun. The course felt very technical and on the front and back straights I was reaching speeds in excess of 110mph.

Unfortunately I didnt have the Brembo's when I went but the stock brakes were more than enough to bring the car down to manageable speeds in the corners.

It was also great to be able to drive in Sport+ and with DSC off to maximize the performance benefits of the suspension.

Current Mods:
Brembo GT 16" (405mm)
BBS LM-R 20"
KW V3 Coilovers and EDC fix
MXP E9x prototype exhaust (catback)
JB Stage 1 N55
Macht Schnell Spacers 18mm & 10mm
Huper Optik tint
OEM Whiteline Taillights
DVD in motion - Programming by EAS
LED Interior lighting - Joe @ Trinity Autosport

Upcoming mods:
Aerokit
New wheels for my midyear refresh
