Thank you. The vinyl wrap is holding up amazing especially that it was treated with ceramic coating.

The grills were first wrapped in gloss black than I changed them with aftermarket ones that have double slats like the m5 without the badge.

Tastefully modded! I like the 7 series wheels. Are you planning to do any exhaust mods on the M550i?

Thank you! I looked at the M850I exhaust and it's basically got one resonator box. The M550I has two, so I removed the front one and now the exhaust sounds very good!

It's been cold here and I haven't had a chance to take any pictures or videos. I can't wait for the summer.

Were these parts OEM or replica?

Replica parts. Fitment on the side skirt and front lip is 100%. The rear diffuser there's a tab on each end on the top corners, they won't stay in but not noticeable at all.
