That's gorgeous! What color inside? What's the pending mod list look like, if any? Are those 400M's powder coated?

I have a piggyback tune and oil-catch can installed for now. Found a front MP splitter and MP exhaust for sale locally in the forum classifieds and plan to pick up next week. Also have a CF rear diffuser lying around that I haven't installed yet. I'm going to have the diffuser, front splitter and exhaust installed in May. That's it for me for now!

Thank You. Black interior. Planning to swap out burr walnut trim for Msport or aluminium trim, de-badge, ACS springs (on order), Dinan Shockware, front splitter, black grill. Debating which tune (if any) but I'm leaning towards Dinan. Would love to get some 19" wheels (403m or 437m) and an exhaust. Car has every option except Msport brakes so a brake upgrade is also part of the plan. Want to do some coding as well...

Yes powder coated dark grey. I'm not a fan of dark wheels but they are growing on me...

Very nice. Love seeing people getting into F31's. So much better looking than the SUV alternatives and more practical.

Why the Dinan shockware with ACS springs? Why not the Dinan suspension? Not that it matters, just curious. I'm thinking of the Dinan suspension with the shockware, but not ready to pull the trigger. Have you had either before?

Got a link for those seat covers? Will need to protect my F30 from offspring as well.

Btw I never told you I have some wagon love in my past, this was a couple of cars ago.

Spoke to Dinan last week and they told me that their springs will not work on a F31 (rear will sag due to the extra weight) and recommended ACS instead which has a specific spring set for the wagon.

Nice, I didn't realize. I thought when I went to the website they listed the suspension on the F31 page, but maybe that was just the shockware. Let us know how the ACS springs feel. I might be down if they work well.

Nice. How did you like it? Wish they still brought the Avant over here to the States.

Anyone ever thought about gettin the m performance springs? I have a F31 340i xdrive and i'm waiting for mine to be installed next week at BMW Stockholm.

Only way for me to keep the warranty...

Oh how I love paint correction.

I have to say the new Griots BOSS is pretty amazing, when you have the innerflex disc and a few washers, otherwise it's useless on card with any sort of curves. The correcting cream is amazing too!

Also applied some Opti-gloss ceramic coating to the wheels and brake calipers.

While I was in there, I noticed in that rear, the swaybar end links are made out of plastic.

Some random shots of the track handling package orbit grey wheels with opti-gloss applied and the M sport brake calipers with the coating applied.

Here is a picture of the plastic swaybar end link I mentioned before.

For anyone who wonders, the UV sunshade fits but very snuggly. You have to press the bottom in between the dash and the lower windscreen before it will clear the rear view mirror.
