Showing off my little Soori ! Ready for the next 6 series meet!

Haha, I just got her a new shoes, new Yokohama S.Drive set, new rear diffuser and spoiler. I don't usually showing off picture of my car narcissistically, but she's too beautiful.

P.S: I'm still struggling to decide which front I wanna go with. Alpina vs M6 + Vorsteiner spoiler vs AC-Schnitzer. M6 looks is aggressive and have my vote but Alpina is really unique and I love its logo.

Wow that's one tidy bit too of kit. I feel so embarrassed I'm off to clean mine now! What is the rear spoiler and is it colour coded?

Looks sweet as if I do say so myself. No too in your face and I'm a huge fan of carbon fibre. Is it just a stick on job?

Looks good yo, mean. Not too many colors can pull off the carbon fiber spoiler and still look clean.

Was shopping for rims and tires myself, are those 20 or 19? I think I settled on a 19, 5 spoke variant. But the quote I got was ridiculous. Just want to totally wear my tires out first before I do anything.

Car looks great!

Did you end up replacing the rear bumper to OEM? Fitment looks good on the pics. And where did you get the matte 650i emblem?

The matte emblem i got from www.bimmian.com
I still have those aftermarket on. If you see my car in person you will see the flaws and imperfection. But basically it's fine so I just go with it for now.

Thanks, I feel so good that I think not many (I have only seen one from this forum) has the M6 Eisenmann Race Exhaust Oval Tips on 650i. Even the 6 series SoCal meet recently, only me has those on. I feel pretty Unique.

Guys,

I'm thinking peeling off the matte black coating on my exhaust tips. What do you think? I need suggestion? Matte black tips look aggressive but after I installed the carbon fiber rear diffuser, the oval tips are pretty invisible in the picture and from far. It originally chrome.

BTW, the color effect on my car is not from photoshop, it's from Titanium Zymol Wax.

I say keep the tips black...they really compliment your vehicle with the carbon diffuser.

Great looking 6! Love all the mods. The contour hood makes a huged difference.

I know right. I even know a guy with 2010 M6 sold his Vorsteiner carbon hood and bought a non-M sport package LCI hood.

Bring it over, My college club is going to do the Charity Fundraising Carwash that include detail and waxing this coming Spring Break. I only use Meguairs products at basic. If you want I can upgrade and do with Zymol Titanium. The carwash will be base in Santa Monica. I'll post a thread when I finish all the planning.

Your car looks great, I love the rear diffuser!

I must say though, the front bumper changes are always lost on me, I just don't see a radical enough difference!

Wait till I get the Front Lip Spoiler. Hopefully It will make a huge change. Maybe LED bar in for a more noticeable look.
