I like it.I think it would look great with the red bakes, and the black roof. Off to a good start.

You should check for the Carbon Fiber BMW Kidney's that's really cool. I don't think it would look that good on a black 7-series. But on a white one it will look awesome.
Perhaps also the roof in Carbon?

Ehh.. i'd be careful with all the "blacked out" parts such as the grill.. i think the roof would look cool but the chrome accents go with the lips.. "blacked out" parts go on black cars.. i'd have to say the same for black wheels.. i still love the brushed look on white cars or any cars for that matter!

careful about the blacked out pieces.. your car's white!

I think your car looks great, and if I had seen the painted roof look before I bought mine in black, I would have gone with silver or white - I think it looks GREAT.

I really like the black grill too. Keep it up.

looks good, but if you want red calipers, better be upgrading to some brembos! else just doesnt look right, its like putting a 760 badge on a 745.

brembos would prolly run in the 3-4500 range. Its not only the looks, but you will be stopping on the dime
