Thanks! BMW always had a way with the color tone in their blues. They are brilliant

Small modification update. Swaped out my square steering wheel for a triangle one and ordered gauge rings from eBay and I put them in. Pretty straight forward. For 10 bucks + shipping this is an awesome mod. The rings are aluminum which is nice

Very nice, I absolutely love the look. I had the dark grey gauges with no rings on mine, so I just swapped in black gauge faces and rings from a 330i ZSP. It's such a nice subtle mod.

Gauge rings are always a good and subtle addition. I thought about painting mine to match my red needles.

Yeah, they add nice contrast. The simplest details make up the bigger picture for sure

Nice change! My cluster (obviously) has them and I love the look. Just makes it look more upmarket. Non-italic numbers help too.

Well the big surprise is over. I purchased genuine BMW MTech 2 bumpers from the dealer back in November and just got them painted a few days ago. Funny story about the bumpers because I walked in there wanting to order MTech 1 and one of the guys there said there was a kit that BMW offers where I can save a bit of money. I decided to go with this kit since it includes all the necessary parts as well as me saving money. One of my brother's friends who works at Thompson BMW in Doylestown, PA helped me order the kit. Apparently, it is 1 of 10 left in Germany so that is pretty cool. I have also ordered carbon fiber front splitters, a carbon fiber rear diffuser, and selective yellow fog lamps. Overall, I am pretty happy with the outcome. I think I have accidentally ordered the correct bumpers by mistake. Here are pics:





















I know I said I would do maintenance first but I figured this was a deal I could not pass up. As far as mods go, this is probably as far as I will go. A few more things here and there but that's about it. I don't want to go over the top. Now I can focus on maintenance

So jelly. I've been waiting on my M-tech II from umnitza for nearly a month now. [On back order ]

How much did the whole kit cost you (not including painting)?

Your car is coming along nicely.

Thanks man. The kit, 1 of 10, was like $1,200. My friend's brother helped me out so I wouldn't have to pay shipping and restocking fees. I think there was even a discount applied on the final price of the kit.

Thanks! The clock came with the carbon fiber front splitters. I tried searching the site to find it but am not having any luck doing so
