Where did you get the front grilles, side pieces and trunk lip from?
Also, how is the ride with H&R springs?

Thanks

FYI. If you order nightvision, you can't select black grills. I believe the reason is that the nightvision IR camera comes installed in the grill.

With non night vision grilles, the slats can be separated from the outer chrome surround. I did so to paint my grille surrounds satin black.

Is that the same with night vision grilles or are they a solid one piece?

Im thinking maybe you could just put the night vision slats into the black surrounds.

Also wanted to thank Almaretto for coding the ride, he's the BMW guru! Dudes a genius!
Favorite change is definitely the anti dazzle/high beam assist feature, its a game changer and real shame they disabled it in all US cars. I leave it on all the time at night and it works great

Looks great. Very unique look OP! What coding options did you get? I coded some features but it wasn't much available from BimmerCode.

Picked up and installed a JB+
Very quick install and gives a nice boost in performance! Supposedly 30hp/40tq and I believe it!

Also picked up a pressure washer and foam cannon for some fun

Any update on the JB+ for the 530e?

Interested to hear about performance gains (throttle feel and passing power at speed), along with any noticeable change in mpg.

So far I'm really loving the JB+!
From the factory the 530e isnt something I would have considered quick, flooring it was usually a disappointment after coming from my 435i w/ JB4.

But after the JB+ the G30 has a lot more pickup, especially at freeway passing speeds. It really pulls now and makes passing carpool lane hogs on the freeway fun and easy.
I'd consider it actually quick now in Sport + M mode, or at least quick for a hybrid!

MPG isnt affected that much, unless you're in sport mode. I'm still in ECO mode 90% of the time so I'm still getting about 40mpg average on a tank

Installed a set of 20x9/10.5 AG M359s in matte black! They just released the new 5x112 fitment
https://www.avantgardewheels.com/ava...-classic/m359/
Picked them up from www.getyourwheels.com

I've been though a lot of wheels but this is my first set in all black, I really love the look!

Itīs getting close to the perfect G30!

One question... Being a M-sport but 530e did it not have the M-sport lower suspension?
Just wondering if the hybrid is not considered "sDrive"

To be honest I'm not sure
I thought it did... but I see stock G30 M sports out on the road and they look as low as my car on springs.
I dont know why but it makes me sad, really wish I could go another 1/2" lower on the front at least
