Sweet!!

Is that the BMW OEM Style 107, 18 inch Ellipsoid rim on the car? Looks great!

I like the AC Schnitzer wing too. Very clean mods. BTW, where did you the CF diffuser from?

Nice mods. But front bumper paint doesn't match.

Were they still using the style 107 rims on facelifted cars or did you add those?

I was debating whether it matched or not and on a close inspection the detailers told me it was because the material is different (u know, the bumper been plastic) and that it depends on light condition but that it was normal. Still, going to the dealer to see what can be done.
The wheels are 107's as IMHO those are the best wheels available for our cars, love em since I saw the bmw short films "the hire" so I got em and never looked back.
The acs diffuser I got from cec wheels as they were the acs representatives in the US but I think they no longer carry that brand. It was a pita to make it work as I had to put oem z4m exhaust and relocate the battery with a lot of z4m oem pieces but I think it was worth it
Thanks for your compliments, I am just surprised nobody has said anything about the "elephant in the room" or "the gt3 in the room" this case

Sounds like they fed you the line 'cos they didn't wanna spend the time and money to get it done right. I've had bumpers and side skirts painted a few times on a few of my gray cars, aside from one bad experience, the color all matched pretty well. If I can notice your color mismatch on the small screen of my iPhone.....

well, the dealer painted it but the detailers are a different company so no selfinterest there. still, I'll talk to the dealer about it to see what can be done.

I may be wrong, but I always though that the style 107s were not available on the 2006, 2007 and 2008 cars.
