Lacster's F10 build from past to present and more to come

I've decided to create a new thread showing everyone what my F10 has gone through in the last couple years.

I purchased the car from a good friend of mine Yi-Wen Ting @ Shelly BMW back on June 2010 but the F10 was not what I had in mind at the time.
I was in the market for a 2010 E60 Msport but after a little persuading from Yi-Wen I ended up driving home with this beautiful F10. Thanks again Yi-Wen

Okay on to the modding!!!!

The first few things done back in July 2010

* OEM Performance grills
* OEM Performance carbon fiber spoiler
* LTBMW painted reflectors
* Debaged emblems
* Nutek 20" Classic 304 brushed center / chrome lips
* Royal Muffler's custom quad conversion muffler
* RD sport lowering springs

Here's some pics with the RD's springs and Performance grills




Phase one complete

Off to Royal Mufflers for a custom quad conversion in August 2010









Here's a sound clip


Phase two ( SEMA 2010 upgrades )

3D Design front lip ( Non M Sport )
3D Design Roof spoiler
3D Design quad diffuser
KW Variant 3 coilovers

Slammed









[url="http://www.3ddesign-na.com/detail.php?code=39"]












After SEMA I changed up the wheels with some Vossen VVS CV2's









Sold the Vossen shortly afterwards for some 21" iforged Legacy Concaves

Here's my temp setup while my wheels were being made









Blackjack baby After a month or so I'm part of the 21" club.
















On to 2011 and Bimmerfest with the great guys over at MORR Competition Wheels Show casing their new 20" light weight VS8.2's










After some unexpected damages to the front lip I decided to mold it on which last a month before the mod bug hit again.








Phase three ( SEMA 2011 )

OEM M sport front LTBMW reflector delete
OEM M sport rear LTBMW reflector delete
LTBMW custom splitter
MORR VS8.2 Frozen Grey
Supersprint quad exhaust & race X pipes
3D Design M sport lip spoiler
3D Design trunk spoiler
Wintech premium tint 18% all around 50% windshield
Wintech carbon wrapped roof and mirrors















On to 2012 with an M5 diffuser straight from Germany and some other goodies.











Removed the carbon fiber wrap and had it redone by LTBMW in gloss black.





It's time to bring sexy back with the 21" MORR MS08.C brushed centers / chrome step lips.



















Phase 4 complete.

* OEM M Sport bumper with molded 3D Design lip
* 3D Design Roof Spoiler ( not shown )
* Custom LTBMW front splitters
* Custom LTBMW side splitters
* Custom piping M6 muffler w/ 4" Dimisa tips















Close up of the molding work from LTBMW



05/05/2012

R1 Concepts cross drilled rotors & OEM caliper painted burnt copper







Close ups.





And Finally here's the photo set that was done over the weekend with John Batte Photography in Los Angeles Art's District.
