Very nice. I have similar mods. They look great on black.

What style HRE wheels? I'm running P40SC's on my 550xi.

That is funny. We were just noticing that most F10s we see around the shop area are either white or black M Sport models. Most are 535i and only a couple 550i.

'Scuse my french but far-kin ossam exhaust tips (imo)! Love the Dinan tatts on them too

Is it just the picture or do they sit a little too far out with the standard M Sport diffuser but with the other they tuck in nicely?

We had planned to do a diffuser with the Dinan exhaust. They do stick out pretty far and don't quite look right with the stock piece. We test fitted the Oem M5 rear diffuser, but the Dinan tips were way too big.

The diffuser looks good. I had been considering one before committing to trade my car on the F10 M5. A little annoyed you picked the P40SC but whatever.

The Vorsteiner piece is from a sponsor here that we source all our Vorsteiner stuff from, SV-Concepts. They ship all over so he should be able to ship to Europe.
So Dinan can't do shorter tips for the OEM M Sport? Shame if that's the case as I think 70% of this forum is OEM. Can you PM me the damage in terms of dollars on the Dinan exhaust and the Vorsteiner Diffuser so that I may ponder please.

Thanks guys.

After a very long wait, my wheels finally arrived today. Sorry for the crappy iPhone photo. More to come, next up tires.

I am hoping to run an aggressive tire size front and back.
