Nice car, great shot showing the concavity of these rims.

What are the numbers supporting the ultra lightweight claim?

Nice, I get to see a car just like that every morning when I enter the garage, luv it. The chrome trim is different, must say I'm glad we get the gloss black option in Aus.

Loving it, especially the morrs!

But man, that silver window trim is killing the whole look! You have the dark theme going on and then the silver trim....

Fantastic photos, I love it. Usually BSM are subtle in photos but look way more aggressive in the flesh. This thing looks mad.

Shame that you don't get the shadow chrome trim as we do in Oz..

Thanks Guys. Not completely done as yet.

The Lightweight Lip arrives tomorrow according to Fedex, will also be doing carbon mirror caps.

The silver trim is by far themost distasteful piece at this point, we didn't get the option in South Africa for gloss black, that would have been a no brainer. Had the car taken to the panel shop to have the trim it changed but according to the panel shop, the hood lining etc needs to be removed, I will be getting a 2nd opnion.

On to the mods:

Akra slip on
N55 Mid
Akra DP's

Racewerks Intercooler
CPE Charge Pipe
Cobb tune
AFE Sealed Intake
Tial BOV

Turkish member reco_53///M who had a built thread here changed his window trim from standard silver chrome to shadow line after buying the car from its first owner. I know this because his was the first 1M I saw in person when it arrived the show room around the time I ordered mine, it was silver. Many months after when he posted the car and its story he confirmed me via PM that his car was indeed the car I saw and I asked him how, it was silver trim etc. and he said he changed it after buying the car from original owner, probably at the BMW dealer. So, it is obviously very possible, contact him to learn how.

And, your car looks fantastic, BSM was my very close alternative to VO. Only issue seems to be that trim mismatch and for some reason the Revo diffuser didn't look to me as good as it stands out with other two colors. Wheels are perfection.

Thanks a mill, I will get in contact with him. Its really difficult to capture the carbon trim on black with my crappy photo skills, but agree with you, looks much different in reality.
