Thanks for all the positive feedback Guys!

I went with 50% tint which is typically the lightest you can go. I went with ceramic because it gives great heat reduction compared to regular metallic tint, especially when you go as light as i did.

Congrats on the new car! Looks very nice.

As for suggestions, I like to do subtle modifications to my car, keep everything looking clean and not go overboard. My wheels and tires are probably the most noticeable mod that I have done so far. Next to that I had the windows tinted, swapped out the chrome grill for a black one, installed a front bumper delete to remove the front plate, did a full LED lighting swap (modernizes the look of the car quite a bit, makes lighting comparable to current bmw's), and just this week I swapped out the clear side markers for smoked ones (pics posted below). I am also waiting for my ACS roof spoiler and black 750li emblems for the rear.

It may sound like alot, but to the average person most of the mods would go unoticed, except for the wheels of course I like to keep the general uniform look of the car but with a touch of my taste.

Just my .02 cents! Enjoy your new car

Re: Beautiful Weather Means Time for a Photoshoot!

You're right that sounds like a lot to someone with no mechanical experience but it looks really nice. I really enjoy driving although I usually drive it on my days off (Saturday and Sunday). I haven't thought about any changes lately but every now and then I get in the mood to do something. I'm still learning all the features of my car after having it for a while, I just found out about my massage seat. Are there any other cool things on the car the average female might not know about?
