My new 435 and a few mods (already)

435i Xdrive - my 5th BMW including a previous E92 M3 and I think I like this one the best, but still in the honeymoon phase

Not a lot of options as I traded on the lot but had the "must have's" for me this time: Msport package, Premium Pkg., DHP, HK, cold weather pkg. and not a lot else. I did also switch out the A/S run-flats for the summer to PSS (what a difference!) The only other option that I really wanted was the Driver's Assistance Pkg. to get the rear camera…I really wish it had this but couldn't find one that had everything else I wanted and in the color I wanted and wasn't fully loaded with options I didn't really want or need. I wanted the Mineral Gray as my last two were both Melbourne RED and I've had white and silver. MG does show the dust, but what I like is that it really hides the swirls and paint defects.

Of course, I had to install some options to personalize it a little bit: Just installed the M Performance brake kit, painted front reflectors, Performance black grills, CF mirror covers and the matching pedal covers. I am really contemplating the MPPK once I complete break-in but some of the issues I am reading on members with 2014's have me very hesitant.

I wish I had better pictures but for now just my crappy iphone will have to do and the sun did not cooperate today…will have to do better when I detail it and get some sun shots.

Really beautiful! Those CF mirror covers look great on your car. What's the floor mat you have on the drivers side? That looks great, too.

Thanks. They are the original Cocomats - black with light gray dots, I was trying to match the silver trim. They have lots of color combo's for other color interiors. I just got the front set for summer use.

Gotta love Mineral Grey.....it goes with carbon fiber very well doesn't it?

What do you think of the M-Performance CF/Alcantara interior trim? I'm really considering it for my car.

Looks good - pretty much like mine will, also following an M3. I'm curious, did the dealer help you go to Pilot Super Sports (Loved them on my M3, much better than the original Pilot Sports.)?

Thanks everyone for all the comments!

I was hoping that the CF would go well with MG - it is indeed very understated as you mentioned. I really like it but you have to be up close to really notice. Thinking about the CF rear spoiler…have to think about it. Yes - I would love the CF interior trim, I had it on my prior M3 and it is my favorite trim of any option. I would be afraid to do it myself and not sure I want to have my new trim removed by someone else but as time passes, I will probably get the itch when my current trim isn't so new.

I LOVE the PSS's! BIG change from the A/S run-flats. Sill in break-in so really haven't been able to test them yet - can't wait! I actually got them based on all the positive reviews found here and other forums. I worked with my dealer who ordered them from Tire Rack and had my dealer balance and mount them when I had my brakes installed. They did a great job. I'll switch back to the A/S tires in the fall.

My car is mineral grey and I have the CF spoiler and I think it looks great (and so does everyone else so far--I've got a few compliments).
