Tooney, your car is just marvellous! I love the black accents here and there. I really miss the coupé look ...

Motorsportbeng, is the rest of your interior warped or is it the M Performance genuine carbon interior?

Any of the carbon interior trim panels that you see are wrapped, including the Y-Spoke on the wheel, just the gear knob and handbrake that are genuine M-Performance.

Black on white looks great Tooney, the M Performance rear splitter really transforms the back of these!

Saw my new car today. Collecting it tomorrow. Pics of it unprepped. Will post more tomorrow once collected. Can't wait. Pleasant surprise from BMW Bradford as well, they have put my finance through on the new q4 rate of 3.9%. So I have saved more per month than anticipated. Result! ImageImage

I had considered detailing. But just can't warrant £500 plus on it

I didn’t get mine detailed either the paintwork looked great from the factory but I did give it a good clean and a few layers of sealant to hopefully help over the winter months.

Are you keeping yours standard? All I have changed are mirror caps to carbon and black M Performance grills.

Often the forum tempts me do more but I am quite happy with the car so far, hope you also enjoy yours

I'm thinking along the same lines. Maybe look at a paint sealant in a month or so.
Might also consider the kidney grill and wing mirror upgrades

Look really good mate. Official BMW parts or off eBay? Fitted yourself?

Ebay, did spend a while looking for good products and feedback.
Grill was £60, the m2 grill actually has 6 double slats on it this one has 5, but carries it off easily.
Wing mirrors most happy with and had a couple comments on as well. The carbon runs true across them as well, they were £120, honestly they take 30 seconds to fit.
Rear spoiler was £120. It comes without tape to fit it, it was a bit more tricky to fit to get a flush match.

If you want close ups or links let me know.

I also bought the mperformance black decals for side skirt. They were a disaster, difficult to fit but they were too narrow (thickness) meaning there was white skirt above and below, looked nothing like the proper product. That was my only bad purchase.

The other parts been on a month now and still look good so quality seems ok, fingers crossed .
