finally picking it up

Not sure why waiting for a car to be made is even slower than the microwave timer...but it is.

I am so excited to finally be picking it up tomorrow morning. Last new car was my e92 in 2008. I will miss it, but time to start new again...thanks to my great SA for these pics to get me through the night waiting. Haha. Special thanks to DCastaneda for introducing me to a great SA. Anyone in th Miami area, please PM me for a reference.

Already have cf mirror caps, the coding cable, and am going to get black plastic dip to do the upper parts of the front splitter in black. Debating on getting skirt extensions in white, as it would match the black above white on the splitter when I do the side pieces...hmmmmm

Gave her a nice bath, lathered on the Menzerna Power Lock Sealant, cleaned and conditioned leather (Wolfgang w/UV guard), and installed the CF Mirrors caps...

Thanks. I am kind of happy I didn't like the current blues...made me go with something new. Almost did AW/saddle....but I had saddle for the last 9 years, plus the oyster just looks amazing in person.

Looks sick, congrats!

I came from a blue E92 as well, and likewise didn't care for the current blues on the F30. No regrets getting something non-blue this time, either.

I had saddle for 9 years, needed a change but hate beige anything. Lol. I put a really good coat of Wolfgang conditioner, hoping that helps save the seats. Lol.

I just picked up dip, so I'll be blacking out the top part of the splitter. I'll post pics when done.

Love the look! Saddle looks better than I thought! And I think the white side skirt extension and blacked out top portion of the splitter would be great small details.

Thanks! This one has oyster. I had saddle with aluminum trim in my 2008 335 coupe.

I'm trying to figure out where to get the skirts done, and bought plastidip. Just have to find time to do all the masking off etc. I also got the gloss finisher for the plastidip. Not sure if I want to use it though. Haha

I almost didn't get it as I was considering glacier white. I'm glad I changed my mind. Haha!
