Looks great. Imperial Blue is a great color. If you can, make sure you get a good polish to take out any swirls and topcoat it with high quality sealant. that will help with swirls.

Nope, Had the Stage 1 in my 2010 750. The Dinan makes it a different car. Night and day. I have read on the forum that people are not sure after they have it installed. Put the car in Sport+, mash it to the floor.... Hello!

This color looks so much better without orange reflectors in front.

Great! Can you take more pictures of the seats, I have never seen nappa leather in the 5 series.

Sure, I did not do the ventilated seats. Had them my M5 and 750 never felt it was worth it. The feel and softness of the nappa it what counts. Pictures do not justify.

Does that center speaker lower when car or audio is off?

Did you hardwire in your Escort? Where did you tap in to for power?

Yes the center channel lowers when the audio is off. Also all three tweets have a small LEDs that you can see at night. You are able to turn off and adjust brightness.

As for the escort, it is hard wired as it must be since is it hidden. 2 laser up front, 1 rear. Radar upfront and a GPS antenna in the rear window.

I had a BMW tech help me because you will never be able unless you know everything goes back together correctly.

OK, yours is a more complex system than mine. In the X5 I have an 8500 hard wired and had to tap power in the sunroof as the front fuse box didn't have any switched 12V (they are all in the cargo area). I was wondering if the 550 was the same...
