To me, the LED lights look ok. I don't see what the big deal is about them. To me, the HUD feature is one that I could not do without. Just my opinion.

Sorry, but I don't like the back. It's too dark. It takes away from a very classy car.

Here is a picture of my baby.

The rear spoiler is too pronounced. It catches the eye too much. I prefer a more subtle spoiler.

It's not bad. I like the M-Sport front spoiler better. I also think the rear trunk spoiler is too big. I love the wheels though.

How to configure in Sport Mode at startup?

How do you configure the 2010 750li to be in sport mode at startup?
