few more, includes pics of my first mod on my M Sport (black kidney grills-which was a very easy swap) and shots alongside my 2011 Mustang GT 5.0 which I will be selling soon. She's a little jealous now.

Awesome pics, nice choice with the black kidney grilles.

Although, can I request you for more night time interior shots of the car with all the interior lighting ON and set to MAX, just want to see how the ambient lighting looks.

Thanks for the pics again, can never have enough of those..

The interior ambient lighting above the door handles that go along most of the length of the door horizontally are very awesome. You can choose "Classic" for red and "Sport" for white through iDrive. Red looks way better and more noticeable IMO. I'll take some pics of both soon as well as those cool exterior welcome lights

can't wait to see mine in the LED garage lighting at the medical center I work at. I had a new model camaro that was synergy green that looked like it glowed in there.

So I swapped the front and rear reflectors, thanks a lot to Andrew @ IND. Also tinted the car mildly.

And Mark, I didn't forget about you. Not great shots cuz my garage is pretty well lit, but they'll give you an idea of the interior ambient lighting.

I didn't adjust brightness or contrast or anything and the brightness setting on the lights are at max level.. Amber looks much better and more noticeable.

The last interior shot looked kinda artsy so I included it. I'll take better, and more in focus pics in the coming weeks when I have time.

Thanks Franzbk...once you get it I'm sure youll fall in love like I did, and while I like the black roof, I'm not crazy about it.

Left exit port on 9/12/12 and it still isnt at your dealer?

Thanks a lot for the pics..

Agreed, the amber interior lighting is much more noticeable and much more nicer..
The tints look awesome, it kinda "completes" the car.
One question though, are the exterior door handle lights part of a premium package or are they a standard feature?

I believe its standard because I don't have the premium package. Just xenons, navigation, enhanced BT and sport auto

The new 3er looks great, but I think I'd have to keep the 5.0 in the stable, somehow, someway!

Yeah they feel really great but now I'm thinking about what to do since I didn't get the tire protection plan. Maybe I'll get some replacement tires during the Black Friday sale coming up. I don't want to lay down around 2k (or whatever BMW charges for these run flats) at the end of the lease. I think they're around $400 or more each on tirerack sooo.... And since I'm thinking about this I'm also considering 19" or 20" wheels and tires but...I really like the stock M Sport wheels so..ah decisions decisions...

If I could fit my mustang's 19x9.5 RTRs / 275/35/19 yokohama advan ad08 all around on my M Sport, I would. But that probably won't work.

They're "dark shadow" to match the diffuser, got them from IND.

Thanks! I've been alternating cars lately and it will be hard to give up the 5.0 but if I could afford to have two payments I'd probably get an Cayman S or an M3 sedan (when it comes out again). Alas the pony shall remain in the stable for another few weeks then it will go make someone else very happy. Til then if I feel like having M3 speed (412 hp/ 389 tq) my Mustang will oblige me.
