Third pic still has the grill badge. Did you file the whole badge mount location or just remove the 5 and leave the ///m. I noticed getbmwparts has the all black grill now just 300 so I've been tempted. Conversion looks great. Any performance mods to back up the look?

The bodyshop did the modifications to remove the M Badge on the LCI Grille and on the Side Vents. I believe they cut it off and smoothed out the sides of the grille.

On the third picture the car was on the final stages and the Badge was not removed yet.

No performance mods to back up the look, this is my Daily Driver easy to maintain and its great on gas, I just wanted the looks.

Looks really good! Love the look and the fact you left off all the M5 badging.

I have been thinking ab doing the fenders as well on my car. Is this a kit? or did you buy all OEM so it would fit?
