Those M-color slats on the grill are a really neat (and tasteful) touch.

Love those grille stickers! I'd be all over that but I already have an ///M license plate frame and doing both would be too far for an M Sport car. I would switch it and do the grille slats instead but I think they'd only look really cool on a black grille and considering I have a black car, I don't want to get a black grille to destroy any contrast up front.

If I had a white F10, mine would probably look identical to yours! Great mods. I would love to see the roof wrap with the rails also wrapped, however I'm aware of how difficult it is to have that done, as I couldn't have it done on my previous white E Class.

Ahh, I've heard that before, lol. FYI the guy who wrapped my old Benz said that the "5 Series has aluminum rails which means the wrap can technically stick, and your E Class has plastic rails which means they won't properly stick". For what it's worth.

You can always take them off and paint them, if it bothers you. I ended up getting over it but every now and then it would stick out like a sore thumb to me.

Either way, I'll tell you one thing, your F10 is the first one in a while to make me miss white. I'm in love with my Jet Black but damn is it a nuisance on my peace of mind. White means you don't have to worry about every time someone touching your car, it getting visibly scuffed, and you get to have fun with some tasteful black accents.

Looks great! I just talked to my body shop and they actually painted one other 5 series roof black. He said they have to take the shark fin off, lower the headliner, replace the seal around the sunroof. He quoted me about $600 to do the job. I'm still debating

Vinyl will run about $150, no need to replace the seal they just pull it back to tuck the vinyl. The fin sounds like it will need painting but nothing else needs to be messed with.
