Went for the M Performance Rear Diffuser and then the BMS Tips in titanium effect, which are slightly longer than the standard exhaust tips.

Also swapped to a ShutterGang Extended "ducktail" type rear spoiler too, completely transformed the rear end of my car which I never was a fan of as standard.
Love the wheels! What are they?

Here's my 240i LCI. Picked it up 3 months ago in March. Already taken it to Scotland and planning many more trips with it over the next year! 4,000 miles in and not regretting the decision one bit!

US style grills are an essential mod on the 235/240! Along with MP gloss black grills they really tidy up the front end!

Are they an easy fit or is it a bumper off job?

A few of mine following a recent trip to Scotland. First opportunity to really test the car on good roads, and I only really start to bond with a car on this sort of trip. It has a lot of promise, but taught me that better suspension is definitely needed, and a more fruity exhaust. I think I might also want an LSD, but will see what issues the suspension fixes first.

Considered this but I actually like the fins, just not in ferric so had them sprayed to match gloss kidney grill, looks😎

After 3000 miles I felt that a bit of Refined Detail work was required - full body clay, cut and ceramic coating. Looks lovely, thanks Adam Jeffrey. He’s now doing the same to my Vantage! (Yes, those aren’t standard wheels and, yes I know what they are supposed to be on, but I think they are nicer than stock and don’t ruin the ride as 19s would)

Love a 235 in red, looks stunning! But I just don’t think them wheels do the 2 series body shape justice, that wheel style used to be a favourite of mine on E46s but I just don’t think it’s aged well
