Got her delivered earlier this week from Denver. Here is Pearl after a good washing. Plan right now is to swap out the wheels, which will be here on Monday. I decided to go with a set of Rohana rfx10 wrapped in michellin pilot sport 3, 255/35 front and 285/30 in rear.
Future mods just some subtle exterior like color matching center trim and color match the reflectors. I think I'm going to keep the stock cerium grey pieces and see how well they match the wheels.

Looks great -
the M performance trim on the side skirts looks weird, I always assumed they cover up the white part all the way to the bottom. Having that white line below looks weird - is that how BMW does it?

I have no plans to have anything done to my car, inside or outside, beyond what you see on these pictures.
(One exception would be a retrofit to the M Performance brakes.....alas, that retrofit is so irrational on a car that has practically new M sport brakes, that I am having a hard time finding sufficient justifications for it.)

The white at the bottom are the rocker panels. Kind of like a mini running board. The post above ^ doesn't have the rocket panels.

Right....the M-performance decal film can not be folded over the rocker panel extensions. Now, in the rocker panel stock form like I have it on my car, i.e., no extensions, the film goes over the rocker panel edge, and that is in accordance with the BMW instruction for the decal installation.

How did you get the white paint finish on the lower rear bumper around the exhaust tips? Isnít it usually black on that lower area?

According to BMW parts lists, 2019 M550i needs a modified rear bumper insert in order to mount the rear bumper M performance diffuser (non CF).

So I ordered those parts (they came in matte black), and had them painted: the insert in Alpine white and the diffuser in gloss black.
At the same time I had the front fender vent louvers painted Alpine white as well.
My BMW dealer's service shop did the installations.

I like the end result, as the car now looks "cleaner" to my eye.
The last bit of customizing that is being done on my car (today as a matter of fact) is a retrofit to the M Performance Brakes. Tomorrow I am picking up the car from the shop, and I hope those brakes work as nicely as they look.
