Thanks everyone. Car is done at this point. One more mod came and its a subtle 3D Design roof spoiler in black to go with the black roof.

I wanted this car to have a more oem modified look and I think i achieved that. Looks modded but doesn't look overkill. To most people it will just look like a nice 5 series but to enthusiasts they will know its not stock

Alan

Take a good pic of the roof when you have, curious to see how that looks.

Also, maybe you should have gone to SEMA?

Alan, as much as i admire your taste and photography skills, i cant believe what you have done.

a. you buy one the best sedans in the world.
b. you mod it up and take it a whole new level
THEN,
c. you let it sit idle 5 days week!
d. you let it sit idle 5 days week non garaged!!

if there is no garage, build one!

lol

Next house will def. have a garage but my condo will have to do for now. My neighbors won't be too happy if i built a garage around their parking spot lol. At least its not parked on the streets. Thats where i draw the line.

Would have went to sema if i lived closer.

Sweet ride! I was finally allowed to de-badge the 535i after I showed my wife yours. Thank You! What size and offset are your wheels and where did you get the color matched reflector replacements please?

What size Philips fog lights did you use? The manual for my 535i xDrive shows using an H8, but I don't find the Philips in that size. Are you able to use a different designation bulb?

Beautiful ride and amazing photography !
I would not be able to keep a ride like that w/o having a garage space for it!

I've already scraped the bottom of my M-Sport front spoiler (stock suspension) driving in and out of parking lots several times. I can't imagine how your spoiler is going to handle NYC long term although it looks fantastic.

^^ look up "Opti Coat v2.0"

Does wonders for your paint finish and keeps it cleaner longer.

DIY. I applied it when the car was new so i didn't need any paint correction done. applying it Opticoat is much like applying wax on a car cept the opticoat goes on sort of like oil and dries/disappears.

Oh ok, did the dealer prep your car? Or did you tell them to leave it alone.

You've done a GREAT job Alan! One little nit that may be moot since we've not seen any interior pics since early on in this thread, did you ever get those awful safety stickers off of your sun visors?

Speaking of which, what is the best way to get those safety stickers off?
