Painted IND Bimmerangs are a must-have too.

I'd love the red interior so much more if they didn't make the bottom of the dash red too. Looks tacky IMO.

Black leather dashboard option fixes that for you.
But I can tell you that the red bottom part of the dash is not overwhelming.

+1...i was very apprehensive about the Coral Red interior as I am usually very conservative with my choice of colors. I dont even notice the interior anymore and everyone who sees it raves about how it looks. Bonus!

Maybe its just me but I think GCs photograph better looking from the rear of the car forward. Maybe something about a the long hood is accentuated from this perspective?? Not saying the car isnt beautiful from all angles, just in photographs I noticed this.

ha i actually feel the opposite. I don't love the slant of the rear roof line...so that's prob why I prefer the front back. Plus I love the long hood...maybe why I love the Jag xk as well ha

Interesting. I don't see that on bmwusa.com.

Also, I had a 4 series loaner with CR and I did not enjoy the bottom part of the dash. Just not for me. But this leather dash option intrigues me.

The black leather dashboard looks really nice.... I saw a GC @ my dealer and I have to say that its very elegant and sporty at the same time, the interior was CR so I can tell you that Red Leather seats with Black Leather dashboard is a perfect combo if you are not feeling the Red Dashboard.
Good luck.

Love it so far. Michelin 18's wrapped around BBS SR ride a little bit more comfy and perfectly clear the blue M Brakes without any added spacers. Squared setup instead of OEM summer staggered setup.

I'm too lazy to search for a winter wheel thread but will post the specs there as well.

Hope you like my winter setup, which I think is nicer than my summer setup lol.

Looking at your car definitly convinced me about getting it in mineral grey....

Congrats man this a pure beauty ! I even think those reflectors looks nice with mineral grey (in Europe we don't have them)

Quick question though , whats your opinion on drive comfort ?

Those BBS SR are very nice although I personally wished it had more concavity to it like the BBS FI/PI do, how much did you end up paying for the set? Do you know if they come in black?

Edit: Damn... 19x8.5 versions are 29.9 lbs a wheel, that's too bad cuz I was thinking of considering these for summers. That's too heavy for me :/
