best way to go is the wrap, if it don't work out you can always remove it.....

So if done with a touch of class it can look good. I do agree that the car looks very good as is without any changes at all.

I will do the following BMW performance parts: front grille, carbon mirrors and carbon spoiler. Then the Ind high glass side markers with black glass (will change to the original clear glass if it looks to "need for speed"). Would love to get the M mats with orange stitching but not available in Sweden...

Would love the Akra with carbon tips and wireless but the price is plain silly!
I have a mate who does car wrapping and motorsport livery so I know his work is top notch, would only go a quality gloss black, I don't think I could pull off the matt look with all the gloss black features currently on the car.

Something I will look more into when winter passes......

Yeah I don't think you can go wrong with the BMW Performance parts, and I must say the M mats Jez sorted for us in the UK are of a quality finish, looks good too Akra system is the one if you could justify the outlay which I can not lol
