The picture captures the scene of a well known third-world dictator parking his shiny white BMW outside the prison where he is going to taunt his locked up political opponents.

Anyone who thinks that's a prison hasn't actually ever seen a US prison.

TO the OP: very sharp! What's the deal with the front, does it replace the entire bumper or is it a lip? Can't tell.

Wish they made these wheels in 19".

The front spoiler is from 3D Design. It goes right on top of the OEM bumper. Last week I installed a carbon fiber splitter that goes underneath the spoiler. Looks wicked.

Thanks. Even cleaner after I painted the front and rear reflectors alpine white to match the body.

I respect your opinion, but obviously I disagree.

I got mine from Schmiedmann in Holland, http://www.schmiedmann.com/5_series/...e1.htm#1937037. EAS sells them for more here in the US: http://www.europeanautosource.com/pr...e-f10-5-series

I'm getting a lot of slack on this forum for the lights. I think they look sick.

Nice car.

Are those wheels cast or forged and how much were they?

First of all to me your car looks great. I actually like the front before the splitter under the front spoiler, but like many have said it's all a matter of taste. I think the front (before the splitter) looks even better than the M-sport front. For me it's definitely better than the standard front.

Could you please share how to get the front and rear bumpers and sides done without getting the wheels? Can you share what to expect to pay and where to buy from?

When you look closer do the parts blend well and integrate with the rest of the car or is it obvious that they are after market? Also, do they come painted or do you get them painted after purchase?

Vossen wheels are not 3 piece wheels, but 1 piece with the stainless lip added. I believe they are cast. They cost me $2300. The fronts are 9" width and the rears 10.5".

More than I care to admit. I could have bought a 550, but then I'd only have a stock 550.

I like the clean look of 3D Design, which is why I chose them for the front spoiler and rear diffuser. 3D Design's philosophy is to complement the lines of the F10 without being obstentatious. Other people like Hamann, AC Schnitzer, Vorsteiner or others. Find the best price and order the parts which ship to you unpainted. Next find a shop which will paint and install the parts for you. Some shops like PSI here in Orlando are authorized 3D Design dealers and they can do everything from start to finish. Go to ind-distribution.com for information and authorized dealer list.

Amazing..must say this is probably the most tastefully modded F10 I have seen on this forum.
With the 3D Design front lip spoiler, the whole front looks better than the factory M-sport look.

Maybe you want to replace the amber reflectors either tinted or color match... I was going to
ask if the Vossens were available in 19's but Needsdecaf answered that already...

Overall very nice look. I think the white tail lights work well on your car. The side crease that runs through the doorshandle is accentuated where it turns into the white tail lights. Doesn't enhance in this way with the standard tail lights. Don't know if it would like this good on a non-white car. Attica prison looks like Disneyland compared to this photo. Nice contrast/photos with your car.

Thank you. I've already had the front and rear reflector painted Alpine White.
