Very nice but then again I'm biased as my car looks exactly the same!

It's an interesting colour as the brochures depicts it inaccurately and photos can show it looking more blue on sunnier days and more grey on overcast days. Definitely one of those colours you have to see in the metal.

I like to keep mine clean but this is one colour that seems to hide the dirt really well.

Congrats

I bet that 550d is incredibly quick off the mark!

Yes, some kind of eyebrows. When I got all black grill I think it became so dominant that I had to balance it with covering the white part of the headlights. It is gloss black vinyl.

Here is a close-up. Not sure if I'm going to keep the narrow strip.

Nice. Did you cut it yourself or have a shop do it? If you ever remove the thin strip another pic would be appreciated. Mine is at the port waiting on a ship so I am prepping for delivery .

I thought the same - Was going to tint the headlights but ordered eyebrows now to delete the light strip above the lights - Cheers

I was shocked that getting a new 5 series in silver was a 1,740 option and added 3 months to the build time of the car! Glad I went with bluestone and I'm currently de-chroming the car, here's the spec on my G31:

BMW 520d xDrive M Sport
Bluestone
19" black 664M light M Double-spoke style with Run-flat tyres
Black Dakota leather with exclusive contrast stitching/piping
Aluminium fine cutting interior trim with Pearl Chrome finisher
Comfort package
M Sport Plus package
Technology package
Trim designation deletion
Model designation deletion
12V power sockets
Driving Assistant Plus
Parking Assistant Plus
Remote Control Parking
Dynamic Safety

Last photo shows gloss black wrapped windscreen trims that continues the lines of the roof bars, makes the A pillars look more slender and evens out the black perimeter to the windscreen - Your thoughts please

Black Kidney Grills

Hello! I'm new to the forum and happy to say a new owner of a bluestone g30.

I've seen a few photos of here with people sporting the black kidney grills and it looks really great. definitely adds a bit of a sport feel to the car.

i still want to see what they would look like in person, so i'm thinking about buying these listed on amazon rather than getting the oem parts and end up not liking it.

what do you all think about this item? again, this is more for a test, but I want to make sure i'm not interfering with the shutters behind the grill or anything. the install seems very easy, so i was just going to try them out and see if i like the look in person.

I picked up my Bluestone beauty last week on 12/29 after placing my order on 11/5. Being in CA and considering it was over Christmas I was very happy I received it prior to the new year. The 2018 delivery will allow me to use the tax rebate for the year and starting this year CA dealerships have to install a front plate mount so this allowed me to keep it off.

This thing is amazing and is a head turner. Pictures don't do the car or the color justice. I've installed the all weather mats for now since it is rainy season here. After the first week I disabled Apple Car Play as I find the iDrive to be more intuitive and like that the nav calculates the best use of the eDrive system.

Fineline Ridge Wood Trim

Premium Package 2

Multi-contour Seats

Black Kidney Grills

I decided against the Nappa Leather because I was too concerned my young kinds would ruin it. It seems so fragile in person but will get it on my next build. I also debated on Cognac but decided on black on black interior. It feels so luxurious to us. Lastly, the multi-contour seats are amazing. It's unbelievable how many adjustments they have and truly provides the best support in a seat I have ever experienced.
