Mein Auto: A BMW
First Mod - Carbon Fiber

Mine is a MY18 competition package purchased used November 2019 with just over 9K on the ODO. I named the car Anger Management, Jr. Anger Management is my wife's X5 MSport.

In any case, after I saw the CS packaging, I wanted that look. So I did the CS rear spoiler, rear diffuser and front spoiler. The car looks really sharp - I decided to go OEM and have the dealer install everything for me. It worked out really great. I wonder why BMW just didn't install front spoiler as standard on these cars.

I purchased a set of lower skirts from RW Carbon. Really nice pieces but I am really struggling whether or not it will be too much carbon. The car already has sculptured side skirts and the rear diffuser does not extend to the sides of the rear bumper to complement carbon side skirts. I'll take any opinions - I'm leaning on not installing.

So, while at the dealer I asked them to Gummi-Pflege the car to take care of the known creaks and squeaks - that stuff works like magic.

I also asked them to make the M/// emblem on my front seats to light up. Shop says mine does not. I thought they all did!

Shop also confirmed something I discovered after purchasing the car - that it had had some front end work done. Must not have been that bad. In any case, selling dealer is willing to do something about it.

A few pics of the updated look. Please let me know what you think about the seat lighting and the front end fix issue. Thanks and enjoy.
