1st batch of mods F30 Melbourne Red M Sport

Hi Guys

Here is my car with the first batch of mods complete

Window Tint @ 35%
M Performance Kidney Grilles
M Performance CF Spoiler
AC Schnitzer suspension ( 12mm Drop)

Furure Mods
CF inerterior ( custom job not M Performance)
Black tail Piece
AC Schnitzer Exhaust
M Performance front lip in CF
CF Badge (320i)

Considering the Following Mods
Roof wrap seen it on Rossi's car and looks awesome
AC Schnitzer Wheels or M Performance Wheels ( budget dependant).

What do you guys think? And do you guys have any suggestions for the car?

Looking very good indeed! Melbourne red and M-sport is a very good combination

If I may comment on your list;

Quote:
AC Schnitzer Exhaust - yup - good choice
M Performance front lip in CF - personally I don't like the extra front lip, carbon mirror covers instead?
CF Badge (320i) - I'd rather debadge

Considering the Following Mods
Roof wrap seen it on Rossi's car and looks awesome - I'm not a fan of roof wraps either...
AC Schnitzer Wheels or M Performance Wheels ( budget dependant). - ACS looks better than M performance..

Looks good!
I envy the weather I see on the pictures.

I hate to live in a country that is "useless" for 5-6 months of the year. I can't wait for spring to come so that I can continue to add stuff to the car!

How much was the M Performance CF rear spoiler? Where did you get it? I didn't know BMW released it.

Very sharp looking M Sport in red !!

My only suggestion would be to paint the rear spoiler to match the Melbourne red body. I prefer the 18" M Sport wheels on your car to the optional style 403-19" ones.

The suspension drop on your car looks good. Did it have factory sports suspension (10mm drop) ?

Wow, you certainly have some very serious looking security fencing ! I recall seeing similar fencing in some Nairobi neighbourhoods.

Car and mods look outstanding... Love the color..
Keep it simple... Less is definitely more...

The spoiler looks red in most of the picture? Is it CF?
Where did you get it? I didnt think BMW had released them yet..

Talk about security... Where are the dinosaurs! smile

The security may be a bit overdone ( two dogs as well) but it is better to have than not. SA has is known for high level of Violent Crimes which is more of the concern than theft.

Antbabee and Mac the CF spoiler was about $750 fitted. it is released but I believe there is a serious back log from Germany. Waited 2months for mine. My dealer eventually got it from another dealer.

@ Derek, yes it had the standard 10mm drop which I felt was still two high, the ACS lowering kit droped it a further 12mm according to the spec sheet I received after fitment. The ACS suspensension would lower normal suspension by 20mm so I have been told. I also prefer the look of the 18" wheels, only downside is that they are not 19". 19" wheels sit much better

Mac and Derek it is a CF spoiler I will take a close up later in the week. I am going for the red/black contrasting look. so I am going to keep it CF

@ Rossi our country has lovely weather this year was the 1st time in 22 years (and only for a day) that it snowed in JHB during winter

When I was in JBG this past May, the "Blue Light Gang" was pulling over cars, kidnapping drivers and/or stealing their cars and valuables.
Are these bad guys still active ?

Thanks Guys

One question, the hexagon aluminium trim inside the vehicle is being modified to CF, should I keep the accent line in Black or change to Red.

I am moving towards red as I think it would look great with the CF
