LTMOTORWERKS | F10 535i

Big thanks to 1013mm for taking the time to shoot my wife's car. Last year Lacster told me he was setting up a F10 meet in socal. I decided to change it up a bit. After all said and done, the car was not able to make it to the meet. I decided to go back to the mtech front bumper instead of the M5 bumper. I added the BMW performance diffuser and modified it to fit the quad tips. I painted the CF spoiler to give it a more subtle look. The tail lights was something I wanted to do ( any JDM by heart would know this ) I filled in the M5 vents to get away from the " M5 wanna be ". The car is in the process of changing again, another photoshoot will come soon with the new set up.

Love it!

What modifications were done to the diffusor? Was it because you are running larger tips?

Absolute love how it looks now, so clean with the M5 vents gone.

I guess you had to widen the side of the m-tech front to line up the M5 fenders?
Is that the matte black finish on the diffuser as it comes from BMW?

The diffuser was the 550i diffuser. I didnt like how they are not squareish so I made them squareish.

Yes, I did have to make the mtech front bumper wider to fit the M5 fenders. The tricky part was filling the M5 vents. The f10 have aluminum fenders. The diffuser was matte black when I got it. After the modification I repainted it satin black.

Very nice. I love the understated, clean and simple look. Looks smart!

So did you modify the mtech kit to fit the wider fenders?

Cheers!

I see, I assume the satin is a bit more glossy than the matte plastic finish.
