Looks quite nice like that but I also feel leaving it as is will run with the darker gloss black features especially the diffuser below and the gloss black kidney grills (and the side indicators done in black), we are also planning to have the wheels done in smoked chrome to finish off the look.

Fit it and see what you think, if your are not happy you could have it sprayed......

I still have some time to think it over, my wheels are also going to be painted it pretty much sounds like we are on the same page in regards the changes to the car. How are you thinking about doing the side indicators ?

And you will change your mind again and again lol

Always the way just like choosing a colour.....

It does appear we are heading the same path, you have some good taste lol

As for the side indicators, black is the way to go in my opinion, my mate who sorts out all my paint and body work on my track astra will sort out what I need but going from the GP safety car, black is the business.

If I ever need to put it oem it wont cost an arm and a leg to replace....

Dealer called and said side repeaters are chrome and will be a nightmare to paint. He advised me to wait and see what BMW M performance accessories brings out, no timeline off course

These pictures are too beautiful to be the lake district haha. This is the north of Scotland around the Inverness area, the picture set was part of the BMW offical launch that took place there. Check out the auto express article

nice one

I am interested to see how the 2 tone job goes on the spoiler, have been talking that one over with my mate who does all my paint and body work so if yours looks the part I may be following suit ; )

2nd July is not far away, try waiting now until Dec for delivery as we are lol

Awesome pics! Had a change of heart a few months ago when finally seeing the VO in person (which I thought would be my final color choice), so off to AW is my order now, and looks like I will be more than happy with that choice. Keep these beauties coming, guys!

No worries i will try and get pictures up next weekend once i take delivery. I was #1 on the list at my dealer and had £1000 on it since end of August last year

My next dilema is whether to get the BMW performance 2 steering wheel now or not, I am unsure if i like it enough to spend £560 on it

as for the steering wheel, only one I would be keen on fitting is the alcantara wrapped M wheel as found in the M3 CRT
