Really
The exhaust takes the bisquit. Do you sell your deleted fogs and gilles?

very smart indeed, good work! The video sounds good, but surely that must be pretty loud given the one silencer?

WOW!!! Your car is amazing!! Where did you source the replica non carbon fiber front splitter? Any issues with fitment or quality? Similar to you, I plan to paint the splitters alpine white and the rest of the lip gloss black to match the other black accents on my car. Again, gorgeous car!!! Well done. And that exhaust is mental. Love the burbles. No issues with drone?

I am fairly certain that is a replica diffuser. I saw one from Bavarian Autosport.

It's a bit loud at times. I'm considering adding a Magnaflow Hotdog-style silencer to it... But 99% of the time I love it. Highway cruising in comfort mode does have a little drone but if you turn the music up you don't hear it and I don't do that much highway...

Tips are 90mm each. The diffuser is obviously based on the M Performance one but the OEM doesn't have cutouts for quads. The cutouts are exactly the same size as the OEM diffuser though.

Here's a pic of it fitted with the original exhaust still on:

I got it from an Aussie Distributor called Mars Performance (link is in my first post) it's kind of a mix between the OEM F30 and OEM F32... Fitment is absolutely perfect and quality is top notch.

Fog lights are actually still attached but secured up inside the guards out of the way where they cannot get damaged or overheat. Coding them out is a PITA apparently...

Got the lower grilles from the dealer. They're a genuine BMW part since in some markets - like the US - the fogs are optional. Cost me $80 I think? Let me know if you need the part numbers and I'll see if I can dig them up...

Yes. Replica. I did actually say "Style" in my first post. I wouldn't try to pass of a replica as OEM...

The Kidney Grilles, Lower Front Grilles, and Side Blades are genuine OEM. Everything else is aftermarket because BMW seemed to have a Carbon Fetish when it comes to the F32 and I didn't want carbon on this car...

hey man, saving tons of money on non OEM parts where it makes sense is something to be proud of!

I agree about all the carbon aero parts for the 4 series. I also dont want any carbon so seeing that plastic aero parts are now available is great, especially the quad diffuser as I am planning to get the AWE exhaust.

Thx dude, but I searched the necessary P/N's already complete out of the books, including the headlight switch. Most German 4 are delivered stock with fogs only US cars are not when M-equipped.
No, actually Im not interested to buy the items oem
