Looks like an absolute belter.

One small thing - are the coloured M-sport /// stripes staying on the front grill?

They look a little out of place to my eyes with the chrome surround. Maybe if the surround were blacked out it would be better aesthetically?

I removed and sprayed the grill surround on my E90 daily and was pretty pleased with the results:



All IMVHO of course! Apologies for the gigantic image - not sure how that happened.

Your car looks stunning, the coloured stripes have gone they went at the weekend, fully agree they looked wrong on the grill. I will be going for black grills eventually, but just want to concerntrate on getting it to a nice standard.

I've just looked at the photos again and find it totally insane that most of the wheels are missing a wheel bolt. How does that even happen?
