Genava Auto Show 2013

Anyone looked at the photographs of the F31 330xdrive in EB with M Performance bits?

Can someone remind, again, how to put photos on a post please.

Much as the F30/F31 is a nice car, am I the only one who thinks that a rear diffuser on the back of anything that isn't some exotic hypercar made out of metalized-helium with unicorn-hide seats, just looks...

Each to their own though - I'm off down Halfrauds tomorrow to get some stick on flared wheel arches and Carlos Fandango wheel-spinners

Surely the front splitter mod would look better gloss black like the grilles?

Hmmm... The grilles are on order already...

While I love the EB2 colour, in this instance the white is better for the performance Kit!

Hear what you say but I think the diffuser is alot better than the boring standard one if it is colour coded as in photo IMO. The rear diffuser and front spoiler I think are good on the white but not keen on the EB. At the moment I am have order the diffuser only so hopefully I will know first hand by hmmmm May????

Yes 100% agree with that I battled with myself on the AW red leather route or EBII black leather , love the white with performance parts but some thing may limit some on resale, don't like rear diffuser as said above but would like to see either gloss black like rails or body colour rear roof spoiler

White car a Fridge - White Goods
Black car a Hearse - Enough said
Red car a Used Tampon - I like Red!
Grey car just Grey - Neither here nor there. Yawn
Silver just Boring, oh so Boring. Massive Yawn.
EBII the colour of Heavenly Skies - The best

A diplomatic ETTO.
