1st Photoshoot | 550i GT | DINAN Stg. 2 | H&R Springs | Muffler Delete w/ Quad Tips

Hey guys!

Finally got around to taking the car out for a nice early photoshoot. Got some sweet views of NYC in the back.

As of now, the mods are:

- DINAN Stage 2
- H&R Lowering Springs
- Muffler Delete w/ Quad Tips by ACM
- Yellow Fogs
- Black Eyebrows
- Custom Red/Black CF Roundels
- Full Chrome Delete (door handles, side marker, rear strip)
- Matte Black Reflectors (front and rear)
- Red Painted Calipers (BMW logo coming soon)
- Smoked Sidemarkers
- 20% Viper Tint

Still more mods to come (smoked taillights, bodykit, etc)

Enjoy the photos.

P.S. I had to cover the date and time since I couldn't get rid of it, so I made a custom logo.




















(my favorite^^^)

Something is missing I looked and I looked, it looks great but I cant yet put my finger on why no WOW factor.
The exhaust is common in most American cars and I would have preferred the Europa Oblong on it, sorry

I'm sorry, what is Europa Oblong? I agree that the tips are simple but it would cost a lot to re-weld on some better looking tips. Don't worry though, I'm going to be doing something very cool with them.

Sleek, elegant - with just the right amount of snarly bad-ass.

Exactly ^^^

Especially lowered now the back is lower and looks more settled. From the side it doesn't look awkward anymore, looks more like a GranCoupe now. Just more bad-ass

Nicely done. The car has great character without being ostentatious. It's relaxed and at peace but also aware of its surroundings and ready to pounce on any unsuspecting prey.

It does remind me of a black panther. Shiny BSM, with the Yellow Eyes (fogs)

Really nice. Where did you get (or how did you do) the color on the fog lights? I really like it.

Are you going to black out the side turn indicators or the lower finisher rods? The latter is a pretty easy mod as they just pop out and can be painted or dipped.

FWIW

The side marker is already matte black? The turn signal in the side marker is going to be smoked soon, and what is the lower finisher rods?

And the yellow fog vinyl was bought off ebay. My friend did it for me.

Oh an Dmunz, send me some pics of your GT. Are they similar to mine?

Mine is not nearly as nice as yours but I did black out a lot. I started with the rods which are the silver wings on the mower grill next to the fog lamps. Being silver they really bugged me. They just pull out so a quick spray or dip and they are fixed.

FWIW

Ok, I'm a dope and I missed that. How did you get them blacked out? Also, did you pull off the sliver "smile" from the back to coat it, or do it in place? Again, if you pulled it off, how did you do it?

TIA

Fair enough. I think you have pleanty of contrast with the fog lamps and badge color. Here's a few shots of mine. The only thing missing is that I have now blacked over the blue in the roundle.
