I looked at both the 550 GT and 535 GT before going with the 535. Very happy with my choice so far. Now I would like to make my 535 look more like the 550. Does anyone know if it is possible to place a 550 rear bumper valence and exhaust tips on my 535?

its easier if you have the M sport package because both m sport use the charcoal grey insert that then doesn't need to be painted... modbargains.com sells the eisenmann dual tips (quad) exhaust system fro the GT you can with have a good shop cut your number and try using 550 trim or just order a 550 rear....

i agree with you but i also don't like the 550 rectangle exhausts....to japanese car like to me.

Is there any kind of cosmetic bolt on for the qaud pipe look? I want four tubes for looks only. I'm probably up for the Eisman pipes, but something a can do in a weekend just for looks a few grand less might be nice.

If you replace them do they have any value? Or are they just scrap?

It should be pretty easy to replace the lower trim package with the 550 version right? On REALOEM it looks like it has a list price of $50. Maybe try to cut the stock trim and if that fails order a 550 piece.

FWIW

earch the f10 forum there are a number of people that have purchased quad tips from a forum member they look very good many options, around 150 for the tips, 100 for the sport number insert from BMW, and around 100 for a good exhaust shop to cut and weld th enew ones on...
