M Rear Bumper Lower Valance Question

Just curious? I have a 535i X Drive, with M Appearence Package AW. Yesterday, I was next to the same car as mine, minus the M Package. The lower rear bumber valance was white, unlike mine which is black? I realize this is part of the M Package, but I kind of prefer the white lower valance instead of the black strip. I also think the black M tips against the white will also look nicer.....

Can I get that white strip installed, I really dont want to paint my black one....I am assumiing it is the same?

Any thoughts

if they are interchangable (m-sport lower valence vs. non-msport valence) i would bet you someone with a white non-msport would swap their white one for you...

You can have the part wrapped. 3M makes the product. I actually have thought about it early this summer but then I actually liked the graphite color of the rear lower valance .... it's unique.
