Super good looking car. I can think of only one thing I would add if I had that car: red brake calipers.

Thanks guys for the compliments! Interior shots, I'm afraid, will have to wait until spring. I just tucked it away for the four crappiest months in Michigan. She's quite content though. Heated garage, Ctek and a car cover. Oh, and three coats of Zaino!

Bymep: Here's a pic from a distance that I took in the Smokies and it does show a tad of the cognac rear seats/headrests with the red.

You're not running for a few month, how about battery? Permanent plug in? I assume you got to start the car at least once a week?

That's what the Ctek is. A self regulated battery charger. No, I've never started any of my winter stored cars for the entire four months. No need to. Stabil in the tank, hook up the charger and then the car cover. Four months later, reverse the process and drive it out of the garage to greet spring! I've stored corvettes, BMW's, Cadillac's, motorcycles and on and on, the same way and never ONCE have I ever had any issues.

Ha! Nope, no thought of getting a set of snows and driving it during the winter. I will admit that it is cruel and unusual punishment to put it away after only driving it for ten days, but that's my plan. Plus, two of those four months we are down in Gulf Shores with one car, the GF's X3. So it's not that bad of a deal. Better to be here and in the garage than the 4.5 month wait for me to get my hands on it!!

Thanks!

Spring 2020 mods: Going to have the lower rear bumper cover trim panel painted gloss black to match all the other trim on the car and then finish off the rear with the gloss black Xdrive and M550i emblems from iND! Since I have a free set of Michelin SS tires from BMW, I'm leaning towards another set of wheels to mount them on. The front runner right now are the 669M in orbit gray.

You need a place in South Florida for the winter.

LOL ! I'll keep that in mind, but don't quit your day job! Final few mods coming up in the next week or two and I'll post pics when they are completed. Got it out from it's winter hibernation last week and was just as geeked as the day last October when I took delivery.
