Thanks Derek, appreciate the comments.
I will definitely look into the tail lamps change.

My eyes however keep swaying to the M performance rear diffuser

Seeing some lovely cars on these threads, I see the F31 has taken over globally!

I am new to the BMW world as an entry have picked myself up a F31
As a daily drive this fits the bill from styling to performance.. still a fair few modifications remaining but I hope the below pics give an idea of the journey so far...

Appreciate any tips or recommendations

Evidently I haven't posted in here yet. I'll start a build thread shortly once it gets ceramic coating.

Looks great, we are sorta twins. You just need the rear spoiler to compliment the front splitter and rear diffusor.

It has always frustrated me that there are so few options when you're trying to find a nice wagon to buy in the U.S. But now that I got one...loooooooove the exclusivity! The first F31 MSport I ever saw in the flesh was mine the day I went to pick her up. And after a few personal touches, here she is.
P.S. Forgive the pic quality. Just a few impromptu shots. Glam pics comin' when she's done.

Well, like that's your opinion man.

Not sure why people hate it so much. I think it rounds out the package.

In all seriousness, even BMW requires that the front spoiler be installed in conjunction with the rear diffusor.

I got the roof spoiler separately. My car is too low for the full aerodynamics package so i ordered the spoiler and got it painted and fitted by a local panel shop. I'm really happy with the result. It is subtle, but helps set the car apart from your typical grocery getter.

I think the spoiler finishes it off perfectly, gives it the extra hint of aggressiveness that distinguishes it from a non-spoilered F31

Out and about on Saturday in North Jersey and spotted an EBII F31 in the gym parking lot. Couldn't resist sidling up and snapping some pics. Front license plate was tow-hook mounted, so I'm wondering if maybe this was someone on the boards here? Don't see that too often on non-enthusiast cars, but who knows.

Hey Derek,

I didn't lower mine at all. I need the clearance as I drive to the mountains quite a bit in the winter time. I am running 18" square winter setup with non run flats in that pic...and the ride quality was superb. I switched back to the stock 19 run flats (i have 442M too) in May and it took a but to get a bit to get use to the stiffer ride. TBH I am quite happy with the stock ride height..especially for Vancouver..it's low enough and it doesn't look off.

Does your F31 have adaptive suspension ? The 328dXT that I test drove had the M Performance Package with Adaptive suspension and 19" wheels/tires. I am very surprised at how compliant this suspension is with RFTs.

Yeah it does....thing is i slapped winters on there right away when I took delivery of the car and I got used to the softer sidewalls. Most of the time around the city I am in eco or comfort.....but I took the summers up the Sea the Sky in sport mode and man they are something else. The stock tires that came with my car were ContiSportContact 5 SSR.
