1M Delivery in Singapore

Hi All, my 1M was delivered on 27 May in Singapore and just got time to post the pics... did a few things while it was waiting to be delivered.

1) Changed the grill to black
2) Painted the rims to black
3) Changed the pedals

Will be doing the following:
1) Paint brake clippers to orange
2) Paint BMW emblem black (removing the silver side lining)
3) Maybe changing to the KW V3 (available now via Germany) - your opinions

enjoy the snapshots of my orange tiger...

PS: last pic was when i was waiting for the car to be delivered...

Haha this is my car! With the exception that I will also be getting the BMW Performance cf mirrors and possibly rear spoiler. It's all lined up already, all i need is the car! I'm glad to see the black wheels work.

The question is how much do you have to pay in Singapore - at least it makes us Australians feel better.

I've tinted the windows already but have not taken any pics. Will post them after taking it.
Not a big fan of CF, so didn't install the side mirror and the rear spoiler.
It's comparatively expensive but it's worth the price.

Frankcos, I can think of a few roads around KL that this car would be perfect for. When I was in KL last year, my mate from Sg brought his car up to KL and we went for a drive with the locals. Unbelievable roads! Wished I could bring my 1M there.

Frankcos, I'm in Singapore on business for a week and would love to see your car in person if you have the time! I'm staying at the Fairmont Hotel through the morning of the 25th. I have a deposit down but no confirmed allocation yet.

I'm a lucky guy! Frankcos and his wife took time out of their busy schedule today and drove downtown to show me their fantastic new VO 1M. It was a real pleasure to meet them both and to get to see the car - my first in-person viewing of a 1M and Valencia Orange. It looks amazing! The 1M looks better in person than any picture I've seen, and the VO was really something, even in the fading evening light. Frankcos' black wheels, badging, trim, tint, and grille look terrific with the VO. It's a bad-ass machine. Thanks again for meeting up with me. I now more than ever hope my deposit results in an allocation! Keith

Looking good! But where's the ///M dead pedal? Is that not standard on the 1///M in Singapore?

It's not standard in th UK either. Don't think it's even an option. They don't seem to have been bothered to re-engineer dead pedals for right hand drive. M or non-M doesn't matter.

Mine is same as this one.

These stock wheels look awesome!

Very clean mods, shinny black wheels > matte black. Matte looks dirty all the time

I like the black wheels as well, quite a lot in fact. You can get the set for $2K through the US dealers (same black Competition wheels as in the M3 GTS), really considering getting them as a second option to interchange with the stock ones every few months for a newer look.
