Tried to install a catch-can (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I'm running into a bit of an issue trying to get the 3/8" can barbs upped to the factory 3/4" size.

Is it me or are the double slat grill hard to get on? Couldn’t get the tabs to go in nice and flush, wound up breaking one of the slats. Going to try to start from the bottom on the next set that comes in.

Seeing that you're I NY your front bumper was probably cold especially this time of the year. I had to warm my car a bit just so things could flex. Did you also have the cf grills?

Great point. I did it in garage, but it was still really cold. I will warm the car up next time, thanks. I didnít get carbon fiber, just all black.

there's some YouTube videos that show guys warming up the cars just help soften the bumper up front. when I did mine I noticed when I pulled out my double black slats that it seemed like it almost broke because there was no give. so before installing the new one's I let the car warm up for 5 min. they popped in but with just a little tweaks here and there just so I don't break them

Finally blacked out the door handles and painted my calipers. I think I will go with a darker silver/metallic grey next time.

How did you black out the door handle trim? I've been vacillating on whether to do it on my Carbon Black. I tried the electrical tape trick, but the black just looked weird next to the blueish hue of the CB.

I used Plasti-Dip but it did not work as well as I thought it would. I am going to use vinyl soon to replace it.

Bought my first BMW a couple weeks ago. So far I LOVE it. 2015 535i with tons of options. I have already done a couple minor cosmetic items and some coding with bimmercode. I'm also keeping my eye out for a deal on a tune (leaning BM3). I live in the NW Ohio area and see there are a couple others on here from the area as well.

From when I bought it



New grilles


I have also put black vinyl on the LCI side markers and the door handle chrome strips. . I'm also waiting on my winter wheels and tires to come in from discount tire.. almost 4 weeks now
