Very nice! and close to where I want to get to as well!
Could you do me a favour and take another shot of the side decals that shows the bottom edge clearly?
I'm in two minds as to whether I can/should apply decals with /without the side skirts.
TBH I'm not sure I want to pay for the side skirts and would be great to see how she looks just with the decals. I also noticed you're not going to put on the "Mperformance" lettering on the sides?

Is everything OEM, or did you get any aftermarket parts?

Thanks mate. Sure, ill take some close ups.

In terms of installation, I did it myself. The biggest tip, wet both surfaces car and decal with water (drop of detergent). It slides around and falls in place. Then start from the middle with a squeegee and work your way out. I would say its easy to install.

Yeah I left out the M Performance lettering on purpose.

The rear diffuser and grills are OEM. Front splitter is not. The decals I got from a seller from the UK, not sure if it was OEM but it was cheaper than BMW.

Car is looking great! Can I ask how much you paid for the car? (PM is ok) I am looking for a similar spec so any prices to go by would help. Thx

It's a bit hard to say because I traded in my car. I would say 72 k drive away 4 years free servicing. My advice, go towards the end of the month because the dealers may have quotas i.e. if they hit a certain number bmw Australia give rebates to the dealer. So they are desperate during those times and willing to deal. These incentives might not be there every month, but it was when I was looking and it helped

yep 72k is what I paid for a 2014 brand new m sport same options + tinting. prices dropped even more the following months but I think they might pick up now due to the falling aud
