PICS!!! - 2014 Alpine White 328xi GT MSport - New York

Wassup fellas,

I have my 2014 328xi GT MSport for awhile now but I never really took the time out to take photos and put in some TLC.

Quick Background
I came from a 2007 528xi, did a lot of modding to make it look like a M5 (smh). After awhile I got tired of it and wanted more space, modern look, and be in an exclusive like club which led me to GT. It's mind blowing how there aren't many on the road within the US. I got the 4 cylinder instead of the 6 because at the time gas was hovering around $5 a gallon.

Quick Review
* I love the comfort of the ride.
* Sh*t load of cargo space. (Made apartment moving from one place to another easier)
* Rear legroom is amazing. Always get a lot of compliments and has more legroom space than a 5 series sedan (not 5GT).
* Sport mode turns this baby into a beast.
* 328xi (4 cylinder) makes it great on gas especially in Eco-mode for long drives.
* I've been through a lot of snow storms (New York City) and this baby handled it well. Ride height allowed me to drive over inches of snow and the xDrive kept me in control most of the time.

Packages
* Exterior Color: Alpine White
* Interior Color: Coral Red Dakota Leather
* MSport Package
* Lighting Package
* Cold Weather Package
* Driver Assistance Package
* Technology Package

Mods
Mostly Aesthetics
* 20% Tints All Around
* 3M Gloss Vinyl Roof Wrapped
* 3M Gloss Vinyl Kidney Grills Wrapped
* Debagged
* White HID Fogs (Arriving tomorrow)

Coding
* Key fob windows and sunroof open/close (Factory doesn't let you close with key fob button)
* Key fob trunk open/close (Factory doesn't let you close with key fob button)
* Cabin button for trunk open/close (Factory doesn't let you close with cabin/interior button)
* Side mirrors automatically fold in and out as I lock/unlock.
* Removed startup disclaimer
* DVD in motion (Wifey watches all of Beyonce performances on long trips lol)

Anyways here are some shots of my car. Most of it is back shots because I like that as*

Looks great! I got the Red Coral with the mineral grey.

How you find keeping the seats clean? I get a lot of transfer from jeans etc?

The solution I like to use is Meguiar's G10916 Gold Class Rich Leather Cleaner & Conditioner from Amazon. It's usually around $10-$11 and use it with a microfiber cloth. (24 pack for $11)

I use one cloth for the Leather, another for glass/windows, and another for the dash.

Beautiful! I almost went with that same color combo, but am coming from a red coral interior and wanted a change. Tint looks great too!

It's a lovely looking car. Mine will be silver with red leather so I am interested in the issue with colour transfer from jeans. I'll have to keep an eye on that.

I use these Dr Leather wipes on the Oyster leather in my 335i GT, keeps the leather looking like new.
