Bmw 535 Sport With Carbon Bits

Just a few pics of my other bmw (Salvage cab is my other one http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...ad.php?t=98480) had the car since september last year and just want to make it slightly different and my own, bought some carbon fibre front grilles and rear diffuser earlier this year, along with mega expensive xenon angel eyes from hella which make so much differece to the rubbish standard headlights, also had all the wood trim and steering wheel button trims painted silver as im not a massive fan of wood interior, also treated to a full set of Goodyear eagle F1s all round massive reduction in road noise! cant beleive how quiet it is compared to michelin energys, the black alloys are silver now as i didnt like them after i painted them black and the tyre fitters managed to wreck them anyways also had a repaint a year ago so nice and fresh now, apart from 2 identical parking dents in both rear doors which will be done by a friend of mine who runs his own paintless dent removal business, as for keeping her clean after being painted it was flatted in 2000 then 3000 trizac with 3m fast cut plus and when needed its given a coat of ag srp, tyres dressed in turtle wax nano gel which smells lovely and seems to do the job nicely! and the interior has ag plastic and vinyl cleaner along with ag leather condition and cleaner, im no detailer just like to keep my car clean as i can with the small amount of time and products i have, hope u like the pics

Lovely car, with subtle mods. Like the carbon.

But I had to be critical. I am not sure about the wheels.

i liked the wheels for about a week then thought it spoiled such a great looking car but they are back to silver now and makes the car look sooo much better, thanks for your opinion tho , always welcome good or bad !
