Added a few things...

Recently picked up a new 2019 540i so I thought Iíd share a few things I added. Went with Suntek CXP Series 35% window tint. I got the M Performance front grilles and the M Performance rear spoiler. Spoiler came in matte black so I had it painted at work gloss black to match the trim and front grilles.









Our current line-up

Looks amazing.

We have similar cars and got them relatively around the same time as one another. Got mine 11 days ago, Alpine White, M Sport, Icon Adaptive LEDs, Gloss black M Performance spoiler, tint, etc. Only difference is I have the 19" 664M and it's a 530i.

I've been debating if I should get the gloss black kidney grills. Where did you get yours and are you glad you got them?

That is the best spoiler to get - I have one in my garage but am currently using a CF smaller one to match the diffuser...you're making me rethink my decision now!

Thatís awesome! I was very specific in what options, wheels and interior/exterior colors I wanted so it was a miracle I found this one at a local dealer. Mine is alpine with with the cognac interior. The wheels really set it off imo.

As far as the grilles go I got them from the dealer and I think theyíre worth every penny. The M Sport models should come with the gloss black grilles from the factory imo. Compliments the rest of the gloss black trim on the car.

I couldnít agree more. I looked at the CF spoiler but found it to be way to small.

Looks good! I wanted to paint it gloss black but the wife said to just paint it white. After seeing yours, I may have to change mine up later and paint the underside of the spoiler glossy black so add some contrast.

Or you could wrap your existing spoiler in gloss black vinyl. This way if you donít like it or when you get tired of it you can always just take it off.

Personally I donít care much for the body colored spoilers as theyíre too subtle. I love the contrast the black kidney grilles, spoiler and shadow-line trim provide.

Why does your front bumper look different from mine? Do you not have the M package? I donít see the LEDs...

Ah, now I see them! Bad eyesight. Love it. On a white car, black accents are perfect.

Yes, I do agree on it being too subtle. The wife didnít even noticed it until I literally pointed it out after installation. Haha. TBH, it was a toss up between painting it black or white. I finally opted for the white because my roof is painted gloss black. I was afraid that having a black spoiler will be overwhelming.

Anyways, great idea on getting it wrapped.

I LOVE the look of both the black grill and black spoiler against the white paint. Totally would do it if mine was white. I've seen theses parts on Med blue and I just don't care for it.

Great job on yours - looks amazing 😀

I did the rear spoiler also. By the way, your family has a good taste when it comes to cars.
