Gold wheels looks good with the caliper match, I going black wheels with blue calipers.
I used the leftover shadowline trim kit i used on the windows frames for the reflectors.

New to me 2012 550i

Picked up a 2012 550i with 65k miles and an extended warranty. So far I have coded some things (Fog lights on at welcome, turn signals on HUD, music on HUD, tire pressure and temp, DVD in motion), also have a BMS Stage 1 to install and I am currently updating the maps on GPS. I need to do a paint correction once the weather clears up a little bit.

Front brakes and painting....

Rotors - StopTech
Pads - OEM BMW
Sensor - OEM BMW
Dust Shield - VHT Primer, VHT Satin Black
Calipers - VHT Primer, VHT Titanium Silver Blue, VHT Clear
Rotor Set Screw - ECS Stainless

Lotsa hours prepping for paint. Tedious work. Very content with results. Will do rears in near future.

I was inspired by Member Tallest to paint in a light blue. Not an exact match to his; however, satisfied with subtle look.

I got the BMW branded 4amp charger for something like $75 from the dealer. Just make sure you get an AGM compatible charger/maintainer. I've used a Deltran Battery Tender, but at 3amps it takes quite a while to recharge the battery. It's not that much less expensive than the BMW branded tender which is why I went BMW.

so bro, do you just plug it in and forget about it? and i'm assuming I can plug it in the hood area or would I need to plug it from the trunk?

Yup. I attached the pig-tails to the under-hood battery connections. I can then hook the car up any time I choose and leave it that way. Our trip last September I left my wife's car plugged-in for over 2 weeks. The beauty of the tender is you can leave it plugged-in indefinitely as it will charge the battery and then float the charge as needed.

I used a rechargeable camp shower/hose in a 5 gallon bucket, it kept the water from going anywhere but on the car and to the garage floor.
