Very Nice!!!!!
Dealer installed paint match trim on front? Was that a special deal? Didn't think dealerships did that change.

Yes.
Sometimes it's not what you know but who you know. Paint matched reflectors were to be installed as well. Tech said paint was peeling from the reflectors and he wouldn't install. When I pickup up it was just the film cover on adhesive. Oh well

It's funny that all the stuff BMW added to the m550i to make it different, people are changing. Painted mirrors are standard on the 540i and M5.

Isn't that the truth. I tried to get them to change at factory and refused. They make a beautiful car and then someone goes silly with the trim. If they wanted to make it unique, they should have went carbon fiber. Not a fan of the carbon fiber yet way better than the cheap looking Cerium Gray IMO.

Gorgeous.
668m style rims can be considered being painted into black to match the black grills and front air inlet grills and side vents.

Really great colour - I considered this for mine but couldn't justify the extra spend this time... next time though I will have one of the individual colours, looks awesome!

Very sexy!

I like the rims. I might do that to my alpine white M550i with all black and carbon fiber trim.

On the other hand, I love the cerium grey trim. I have got a sapphire black G30 540i and I requested my local dealer to install the cerium grey parts to be installed before I collected my car.

Probably depends on your paint. I can see it not going with some colors at all.

I have an Azurite Black M550 on the way and I think the cerium gray will complement that color nicely. About the only cosmetic mod I'm considering is swapping out the front reflectors for painted ones...but I'll see how much they bother me once I have the car.

Since my very opinionated post I have seen them on black and sakhir orange and would say they look pretty good on the those colors. Did nothing for this color of blue.
