I don't think so Razzy... Under the hood it's listed as Space Grau Metallic

Thanks Howitzer... I almost gave up trying to find one the way I wanted it, but one day all the stars aligned and I found it. I wouldn't have it any other way..

Oh yeah, and speaking of lucky SOB, nice M5 :)

I totally agree Vern... I have been stuck with a plate on every Bimmer I have had. Is it something I can do myself or do I need to take it somewhere...

You can do it yourself and can buy bumper plugs to put in the holes. good luck

Thanks Paisano! I used to work for a company in Gaithersburg, where you at in the DC burbs?

That's one lovely machine there :) I am most jealous about the ventilated front seats. I can't believe 60-70K car doesn't come with them standard :(

About the bumperplugs, I had them for my previous car, but I bet the current plate frame (holder?) has left the scratch marks on your front bumper already so I think you'd better off keeping what you have right now. That's what I am doing, too. If the car is a brand new and the dealer just put on the frame, then perhaps it would have been okay, though.

So good news. I removed the front plate holder and there are only two drill holes, but no scratches or permanent marks. I'm going to order the bumper plugs and see what happens.

Good for you! Let me know how plugs work for you. Perhaps I should take mine out and see :p

Looks pretty darn good :thumbup:

I am gonna take my holder out and if there is no scratch then I might just do that too!

Looks great! Do they fit right in or do they come out a little. My car came with a M5 bumper which looks fine except the grill is painted gray, I plan on repainting it black, and I have no idea what happened with the sensors but all around them are chipped.I was thinking of getting bumper plugs to cover up the chips in the paint because repainting the bumper didn't work. Have a look and tell me what you think thanks.
