stock white 528 with black overlay?

I have a stock white 528i with 550 wheels on it and tint. Those are the only 2 things i have changed. I am trying to find out what my car would look like with a black overlay. Does anyone have a pic of a stock white E60 with a black overlay?

I tried to Google it but all the E60's with black overlays had a lot of other work down to them - drop, ground effects, ect....

What do you mean by "black overlay"? If you mean shadowline trim, that will look great - shadowline is how a BMW should look. If you mean things like a black roof, that looks really good on an Alpine White car as well. Also, either paint the reflector on the front bumper or get it wrapped in white vinyl, that was one of the first things I did to my car. I hated the egg yolk being on my front bumper.

I mean a black roof, there are overlays that make your whole roof black.

What is shadowline?

What do you mean paint the reflector? i don't have a wind deflector on my car.

Black roof looks great on an AW E60, go for it.

Shadowline is the trim around the windows that is matte black instead of the chrome your car has. BMW cars tend to be much more desirable with shadowline trim as opposed to the chrome because, unlike other car makers, BMW removes chrome on higher end models.

I mention the reflector in front of your front wheels that is in the bumper, basically a glaring piece of orange on an otherwise pristine white car (hence the "egg yolk" reference).
