Nice one mate! The leather seats look like they're in need for some love though...

So the pictures in the first post is with stock suspension?
I have been wondering about getting new wheels for my F11 and replace the 19" oem ones, but I thought I would need a drop for it to look good, but with those 21" it does not look too bad.
Thing is I don't plan on keeping my car that long, so spending money on new wheels and suspension for what would be 3 months use or so is hard for me to justify.
I guess the winter tires are coming on when I get back home, and since I plan on replacing the car within a year I'm not sure what to do.
Thinking about an M5 next so that means I can't bring them with me to the next car.

Thanks man. Although it is a quite expensive upgrade, it's worth it. The M5 diffuser looks so much better than the stock M-sport.

The pipes look like they could be shortened a tad or maybe that's just the angle of the image. Keen to see how it sits once you've dropped it. Man, I'd be proud to have this in my garage
Thank you for all the kind words, much appreciated! The pipes sticks out about an inch from the diffuser, so it might just be the angle of the image. There is coming some better pictures of the exhaust set up soon.

Thanks! They have been treated with Swissvax leather milk two times already this summer. But there is always some wear and tear when the car has been rolling over 100.000 kilometer, like this one has.

That's right, the first pictures are with stock suspension. Since I have EDC it's not even M-sport suspension. I'd definitely keep your current wheels and save the money for nice set up on a car you plan to have for a long term.

I really likes the black in the handles and side fenders, I looking to do the same to my f11, just have to decide how to do it, paint the original or buy some aftermarket stuff.

I know some guys use gloss black vinyl wrap for that.
Personally I think white looks better around the fender turn indicator, like on Remmib's car, kind of makes the whole indicator assembly "disappear".

I do like the M5 grilles, and the rear reflector delete.

I bought the black frame around the turning light on the side fenders from IND. Great quality. The door handles were done by a professional, using gloss black vinyl. Probably you can just vinyl wrap the side fenders too.

noggie I have a silver f11 with black kit around the windows so I think that black would be nice.

I think I will use black vinyl on the reflektors on the rear bumper.

Yeah, white on a silver car would look really strange.
You can buy them in the cars color and that was pretty much what I meant, my car is the same Alpine white as OP's car.

I was going back and forth about changing these things but in the end I decided not to do anything to the car at all and keep it stock.

ahhhhhh..... Now I really want to lower and get wheels for my F11.

How is the ride of the ACS compared to stock?
I drove a car with 20" wheels and I felt no difference from my 19" so I don't think 21" will be much different.

If I get comfort to feel like sport, and sport to feel even better that would be great.

Looks great

Digging those rolling shots.

Did the exhaust sound change after you put on the Supersprint exhaust?

Thanks guys!

Since the drop was just 25/15mm, the difference is not that big Noggie. I'll say the springs made the car even better to drive, but the rear lowering made it a bit more bumpier. I'll say it made comfort mode like normal mode. You'll sure notice the difference from 20" to 21" (I have 20" winter tires), but I think it's worth the effort because it looks more aggressive.

The sound did not change very much remmib, since I've only got the 20d (with Hartge box though, 218 PS). The sound is a bit rougher when cold starting and driving in sport mode. Not too much, just like I wanted it.

Hi Walkabout!
You've got such a perfect car. The rich set of options is combined with excellent wheels, exhaust and diffuser made like a masterpiece. And the European smart practicality is here: unlike racer boys going mad about tuned 550xi sedans, you drive the 520d wagon, through absolutely stunning landscapes that look like postcard or a dream to me.
The nature is fantastic, and your car and pics are incredibly good.

Wow, thank you for the kind words, Valery! Although I modify the car after my personal taste, it's always great to receive such a positive feedback knowing other people like the car too. I appreciate a clean and sporty look, and think I might have reached that goal on this car

This one has the full M-sport package, comfort seats, leather interior, sport automatic with shift paddles, HUD, panoramic roof, active cruise control, EDC, NaviPro, HiFi Pro, electric towbar and exterior/interior light package just to mention some of it.

I have done some small, but tasteful mods too. Fitted some Avantgarde M510 21" wheels, 9" front and 10.5" rear with Falken FK452 255/30 and 295/29-21. I also got the M5 LCI Performance grill (5-badge removed, so it just stands ///M). The rear reflectors (alpine white) and fender light trim (gloss black) are painted by IND, big thanks. The chrome inserts on the door handles are vinyl wrapped gloss black as well.

I've bought a set of AC Schnitzer 25mm lowering springs that is to be mounted next year, so the car gets a little bit closer to the ground. The 4x90mm exhaust system from SuperSprint is also on its way from Italy these days and is to be fitted with a gloss black M5 diffuser. Also looking for a set of M434 20" wheels for winter use.

Hope you enjoy the pictures even though the engine is more sleepy than you are used to over there in the land of freedom
Are these pictures with the lowring spring on or is it the original setup

This is a sweet looking F11 I love every mod you have done. Just a little confused about the red callipers. It looks a little cheap But that`s just my opinion

The M5 diffuser looks great, doing the same to mine tomorrow

It's not lowered in the pics in the first post.
Look in post #32 for the pics of it lowered.

And BTW Walkabout, wouldn't mind more pics of the winter set up.

That looked so good I could have used it as my summer setup.

He visited me a few weeks back so i got a good look at his car.
