My Blacked Out BMW 550i GranTurismo!

Here is my murdered-out 2010 BMW 550i GranTurismo. Love this thing! Hope you guys agree! All black with red calipers turns this machine into a sexy beast. Also, with the Sport Package and Dynamic Handling, this 4900 lb car feels like a sports car, hitting 0-62 in 4.6s with DSC OFF. Enjoy!

P.S. I'm new to the forums











Also, I'm looking into getting a DINAN Stage 2 done to the beast, is it worth it?

No actually, the taillights were left stock, but sometimes it has a smoky tint look to it. However, I kind of want to darken the inside of the headlight... Does anyone know where I can get the inside of my headlights darkened (basically everything is a dark grayish black except for the rings and indicators

Don't know. But how about adding. Quad tips? That will set it off.and I bet nobody has quad tips on their GT.

They are the optional 20" rims that come with the Sport Package (not M) on a BMW 550i GT... and the grill is matte black. The wheels were custom powdercoated matte black.

They are actually these custom caliper covers I got from MGP since BMW doesn't make red calipers and painting sometimes chips and wares off. They even have BMW engraved on it!

i like that - they seem to have a bit of an unfortunate reputation in the UK as a bit of an "old persons car"- but i think they always look great and yours is one of the finest.
