Tried to get the pics in order but you get the idea

MUCH better looking

New passenger mirror glass, waiting on number plate lights and also the specialist has checked the car out and gave it a big thumbs-up so the project officially starts now

That's a fantastic improvement on the bumper. I've never used wet & dry so would be so worried when i saw it at that stage. Brilliant.
So nice to see a bmw in a different colour. Mine was grey zzzzz
