did you fit the m sport brakes? only asking as i heard that it is difficult to fit the rear ones with 345mm discs as the handbrake is different size. i just fitted the front 4 pots off the 335i which uses 340mm discs and left the rear standard, i think it brakes so much better than before.

i would go with gloss black like the front grills.

i should have tried it, oh well not going to worry about it now i went to get braided hoses fitted before christmas and the garage almost snapped the hardline as all 4 are rusted where it connects to rubber hoses. not good for a car that has just turned 4 and also last week i had to replace both rear shocks as one had leaked and it faied the mot for that. i really hope i don't have a lemon.

Looks stunning mate

Seeing your gloss black M Perf kit has made me decide that I'm going gloss black over the standard matte black. The rear diffuser looks amazing in gloss

I think standard matt black looks cheap plastic IMO

Thanks for kind words and look forward see yours fitted

How on earth do you insure a car such as this with all the modifications from SE specification?
I would have thought the cost would have been prohibitive to undertaking such extensive changes from standard.
