By far the nicest F11 lci ever! Fact!!! Everything you have done is so tasteful and made to car better………Individual ain’t the word! 😬

Updates?! 🤞

Sorry but I’m going to be copying some of your mods…..😊

I’ve already done the mirror from reading about it somewhere else 👍

I love the idea of F01 pillar lights, easy to find the power?

Cheers, James

Thanks for that. There aren't that many updates now, other than ongoing maintenance and care. Have some ideas about some saddler work.

Its easy to find the power. I made Y-split cable from the rear door wiring in the B-pillar.

Acutally, my last mod was to replace the annoying LCI volume knob. :P

BMW-ALPINA, I would assume you'd want to wrap your trim in merino leather, and dye it the color of your interior color, as shown below....then post a photo so the rest of would be couragous enough to follow suit.

(Sorry for the lousy photoshop'ing in MS Paint, but it should get the point across)

I have thought about the idea several times. I already have nutmeg/muskat merino lying around, so if i find a cheap panel, ill try.

Just bought this set today. Will start the M5 brakes retrofit in december.

I suppose you have done pretty much everything!

I’ve just noticed your gear shifter……i retro fitted the same one! 👍

The pillars I ordered didn’t fit, must be pre-lci f01 not lci (was told they were lci &#128078

I’ve just managed to get my hands on a set of F11 lci comfort seats with massage, so that’s gunna keep me busy over the cold quite months 🤘

Are they the staggered offset ones, 32mm front and 25mm rear and what size tyres are you running?

Great thanks It looks like at the rear you could even go slightly wider or even swap front to rear and run a 12-15mm spacer at the rear on the 32mm wheels (making the rear offset 17-20mm)

I am just asking because I'm hunting a set of these as well at the moment for my F11 and am wondering about fitment.
