I really love what you've done with this car. I have the diametric opposite in terms of color (jet black), but this is exactly what I like to do to mine as well, right down to the CF chin under the front spoiler. I am also going to get the black-and-white roundel - that looks sick.

I like this so much it might be worth doing it in Orlando... it's not that far from Savannah... hrrmm...

Looks even better on the Jet Black

Although I don't have the M-Sport front fascia, so I'm glad to see your car with the standard 535i front end spoiler chin. Time to start working on the WAF...

The wheels on the black M-Sport are from Rennen and I think they are 21".

Resurrecting this baby.

You have any updates on how those CF B Pillars are holding up? And where you got them?

Considering doing this to my car but I just don't know if it'll detract from the look. I did it to my E-Class and was iffy on it, sometimes it looked cool and sometimes it just broke up the flow of the car since it doesn't blend with tinted windows. To top it off, my F10 is black and with shadowline so I'm not sure if they'd stick out like too much a sore thumb.

Damn the wheels on that black f10 are hot as hell. Been shopping around for rims as well and they look like vmr 710's. Damn near perfect on the car. Only thing is I plan to stay with 19's nothing bigger.

The carbon fiber pillars are holding up just fine. The reason I installed them is because I wanted to tie all the carbon fiber together from the front splitter and grill to the cf side marker lights to the mirrors to the rear spoiler and diffuser. If you have other cf components it will look great. I also had shadowline trim. I bought them from Bimmian.com.

Thanks. Yeah not sure how they'd do on my all black with no other CF. Considering my doors, shadowline, paint, etc. is black, I wonder if they'd break up the look and just stick out like sore thumbs. On the other hand, maybe they'd add some slight contrast.

If you have any other pics with good angles of them please post.

I think you've done enough to get close to M- Sport cars and that's admirable. I actually like the tail lights.

I think the car looks nice with the exception of the Lexus lights.

However I don't think it is any better than a stock F 10 with the M sport appearance package.


Be careful on the mods. It is almost overdone.
