Hottest M Performance 428i from the Land Down Under !

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi guys ! After a long 5 months, she is finally here.

Had her custom painted with gloss black accents as you can see. Unfortunately, the rear lower diffuser and carbon fibre boot spoiler will come next month
Still quite difficult to source the new M performance parts as some do not have part numbers yet.

Some showroom pics 1st !

Would have loved the 435i but by the time I optioned one up, it was going to cost more than a $130K !! Yikes !

Painted the lower rear diffuser gloss black too as the M performance one isn't available yet.

the painted 'diffuser' tricked me for a sec, looks great and a great alternative until you get the real deal. but the right side seems to be painted wrong?

looks great man

Yeah I only noticed on my photos, the L front lip was not painted as well as the R side. Didn't even see it on the car in the flesh. Unfortunately a minor blemish I'll have to live with.

The 405 wheels looks great on white cars.

Nice love the white and black ascents. Maybe a black roof would go nice with it as well. The 405M looks good on the F32. Makes it appear bigger and more aggressive. Nice car, Mate. Congrats on your purchase.

Thanks so much ! I did think of painting the roof black but after nearly 1 week of 40+ degrees C in a few cities in Australia I decided not to.

looks great!
How do you plan to paint the rear diffuser (perhaps white in the middle and black around it to match the front design)?

Lovely enjoy the new ride,
when i placed my order for 435i in November, they said it will take at least 6months for them to get the actual Australian pricing for 4 series M performance accessories, all they do is tick whatever's there in the options list and most of the sales guys did not even know that there is an Mperformance kit for the 4 series , 2 more months to get my car:-(

Was thinking if painting the M performance rear diffuser all gloss black or perhaps just keep the middle black.
