One of the few GTs out there I've seen and actually liked. Well done.

Take into consideration that the GT is much more a luxury cruiser than a sport sedan!
Red calipers on stock braking discs look quite cheap on such an expensive car.
Think twice before doing a mod' if you really want to add some value to the car

While the pictures may not do justice I can assure you this machine looks amazing with the calipers... Plus they are a reputable brand that makes caliper covers for BMWs like mine.. It helps prevent the brakes getting dust or rusting, which leads to longer and stronger brakes!

Hey guys!

I'm planning to get a DINAN Stage 2 Tune-Up done to the beast, as well as some light smoke tinted headlights (maybe taillights). How does that sound? Oh and maybe some wheel spacers too.

Hey everyone! A lotta new things coming up for the New Year, and here is just the beginning. We blacked out (matte black) the chrome strip in the rear, exhaust tips, "550i" and "GT" emblems, door handles, and turn signal. Pictures attached (more coming soon). Next we are getting the color matched reflectors and wheel spacers.

LOL sorry about the quality the app I used to pixelate the license plate really lowers the clarity and quality of the photograph. Will post other pics (hopefully clearer) soon.

UPDATE: We got the Stage 2 and a professional muffler delete with quad tips (its a straight pipe now). Will upload a video and pics soon! Love it. We clocked 3.9s on it, incredible feat. for a 4700 lb car
