Hey guys!

Finally got around to taking the car out for a nice early photoshoot. Got some sweet views of NYC in the back.

As of now, the mods are:

- DINAN Stage 2
- H&R Lowering Springs
- Muffler Delete w/ Quad Tips by ACM
- Yellow Fogs
- Black Eyebrows
- Custom Red/Black CF Roundels
- Full Chrome Delete (door handles, side marker, rear strip)
- Matte Black Reflectors (front and rear)
- Red Painted Calipers (BMW logo coming soon)
- Smoked Sidemarkers
- 20% Viper Tint

Still more mods to come (smoked taillights, bodykit, etc)

Enjoy the photos.

P.S. I had to cover the date and time since I couldn't get rid of it, so I made a custom logo.


Video (was shot before some mods) :






















(my favorite^^^)

Thanks I talked to my dealer they said that it would be almost $10K to retrofit an M kit as it would be too difficult. However, as we speak LT - MOTORSPORT is creating a bodykit as we speak (or should I say post lol)

Nice. What is LTBMW doing for you? You need to get your work done by a different dealer. 10K to swap bumpers is a joke. I'll do it for you for half that price lol

Actually, my dealer is BMW Prestige in Ramsey, where we are going to be having our next meet soon.

LT-Motorsport is a different company that specializes in aftermarket parts.

I honestly don't know. He didn't specifically say $10K, but he said it would be high 4 figures.

Are the f10 and f11 Front bumper/sideskirts interchangeable? If so; buy yourself the rep kit for $700 and have them painted for another $400. Or call up LTBMW and see if they will fabricate a bumper for you. Really all you need is the front bumper in M5, screw mtech lol. BTW you car looks really nice, the only f11 i like.
